Last week I traveled to Atlanta for a conference. Since Atlanta is only five hours away from Boonetowne, I drove my own car to the conference. And since I had my car, I knew I could check out a fabric store in Atlanta. For me, one of the best parts of visiting a new town is exploring new fabric stores. Boonetowne has two quilt shops and a Walmart, but no real fabric stores. So I’m always on the look out for places where I can get my fix!!

I did my research beforehand and identified Fabric Joint in Decatur, Georgia as the store to be explored. I plotted my route and got there without any real issues. It’s relatively easy to find and parking is no issue. From the outside, the place looked very promising–what’s not to like about giant signs that say “Fabric Sale”???? When I got inside, I knew I found a real gem. (I asked if I could take pictures, and they said yes, so I’m going to post a few.)

The first thing I saw when when I walked in the store was this giant table of clearance fabrics for $1.99. Seriously, $1.99.

The place is pretty big and has a warehousey feel. They have A LOT of fabric and the prices are amazingly low.

In addition to the clearance table, they had a 2.99 sale table.

They had wool for $6.95.

Honestly, they had a huge selection–no rib knit, but that was ok. Here is a picture of my cart:

I went a little crazy on the sweater-knits, but I always go a little crazy with sweater knits. Here’s what I bought.

Plum and lavender sweater knit–I think it was $4.95 per yard.

Black boiled wool—-I think it was $4.95 per yard.

Oatmeal ribbed sweater knit—-I think it was $4.95 per yard.

Spring green sweater knit—-I think it was also $4.95 per yard.

Hunter green and cream sweater knit with black reverse—-I think it was $4.95 per yard. See, I told you I got carried away with the sweater knits.

I’m not sure what this floral is–it has the weight of a shirting, but it’s not a shirting. I think it was $3.95 per yard.

This stripe was a clearance fabric–$1.99 per yard.

This herringbone is a double knit. –I think it was $3.95 per yard.

This store is amazing. I wish I lived closer, but it’s probably a good thing that I don’t. If y’all visit Atlanta, you should definitely stop here.

Out of five possible thimbles, I rate this store a 5!

    I am nowhere near Georgia and not likely to travel in that direction anytime soon but I sure appreciate knowing about this place. You showed amazing restraint, especially since you had your whole car trunk to carry the bounty.

  2. Barbara, it is worth the trip! I’m actually trying to come up with a reason to drive back!!!
