With three full floors of fabrics (and a separate building in the back for upholstery fabrics), I've never seen more variety and options. People travel from miles around to visit Schoolhouse Fabrics.

Got a chance to go here while visiting my sister. This is an old school house with 3 stories Full of fabric. Every floor, every room. There was a button room FULL of buttons of every kind. So much stuff to choose from. The prices were pretty steep though. Better bring a lot of money when shopping here.

My wife and daughter make quilts and are always looking for fabric. This place is a gold mine of material. Room after room and the employees are helpful and friendly, Prices are fair with some sale items

If your wife is a seamstress, you might be here awhile. This unpretentious store has a huge selection of fabrics, notions, etc. Maybe not as up to date as Mood but, hey, this is SW Virginia. My wife (and I in tow) have been coming here for years. There is no other stores within 100 miles that have the selection... More

We took a road trip to check this store out, my mother is a fabric lover. She was a little disappointed. There were a huge selection of fabrics but on a lower end tier. Prices were average. Many of the bolts looked like they had been there for quite some time and the designs were dated. Not worth a road... More

I loved this store. They have a wonderful mix of old and new fabrics with great prices. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I was able to find so many wonderful fabrics that if I do nothing but sew for the next three years, I may come close to using up all the fabric I bought. If I... More
