Don't know what to make? There is no shortage of pattern inspiration and instruction for adult and children's fashions, accessories, and home dec projects from all the "big names" (Vogue, Butterick, McCalls, Burda, Quick Sew, etc.), from many indie (independent) designers (Revisions, La Fred, Amy Butler, the Sewing Workshop, Tina Givens, etc.) as well as from heirloom and vintage design companies (Bonnie Blue Designs, Folkwear, Treasures of the Past, to name a few).
Pattern books
No need to sweat the small stuff either, because they have hundreds of notions and sewing accoutrements! Buttons (including an amazing selection of vintage buttons), closures of all types...

Did you know that knitwear designer, Nicki Epstein, has a line of buttons and closures? Textile Fabrics has them...

For all you yarnies, there are yarns in various fibers as well as pattern books, tools and supplies.

I also found unique and hard-to-find items such as thread and needles for sashiko as well as other nifty notions and gadgets. Anything you can imagine for those craving the needle or fabric arts.
Specialty threads, patterns, notions and clever gadgets.
I have some friends (Marilyn L. and Etta McF.) who told me about this fabulous store. They weren't exaggerating! For those who love making wearables and garments (guild friends, Cristy C., Nancy A., and Sheri S., this means you), plan a day to get lost in here because you don't want to miss any of the eye candy Textile Fabrics has to offer.

There is ample parking—with some shady spaces due to the expressway overhead—and the staff is quite friendly and very helpful.
