F is for Fab

I could spend hours perusing the discount fabrics at U-Fab on Robinson...

One of the best kept secrets in Richmond is the fabric and upholstery store U-Fab on Robinson Street, in the Fan. This amazing little oasis of designer fabrics is not only incredibly convenient to the city dweller, but also seriously affordable. Being someone who can't stop sewing, I quickly learned that fabric is always your biggest investment during a project. U-Fab carries some of the best and most recent designs at discounted prices (as low as $10/yard). Their stock consists entirely of upholstery weight fabrics, but you can often use upholstery for more than just re-doing a chair or couch. I've created bags and other accessories using the heavy-weight grade fabric that U-Fab offers.

Their store is usually only open until 6 pm on weekdays, but they have decided to keep the shop open late on Thursdays to accommodate your needs this holiday season. To celebrate their decision, they are hosting a party tonight with drinks, light food, and chances to win U-Fab gift cards! Stop by their shop on Robinson, between Parkwood and Cary, from 5:30 pm and 8:00 pm tonight to help them celebrate! Also, check out U-Fab's Facebook page for weekly updates on their newest fabrics! (Thanks Christine for the hot tip on U-Fab's party!)
