About Our Store
Owner Lisa Bender has been quilting for over 30 years (and has the stash to prove it). She has always sought out top quality fabrics at low prices for her own quilts, and wanted to open the type of store that she would shop in. She opened Brooklyn Fabric in the small town of Brooklyn Iowa in February of 2014. Online sales followed about a year later, and then in January 2018 everything was moved across town (which is a few blocks...that's how small our town is) to a brand new, much larger store
How much fabric do you carry?
At any given time we have thousands of different fabrics. Lisa LOVES buying fabric so we have new items coming in regularly. Anything you see on line is available in store too.
What brands do you carry?
To name a few : Andover, Blank, Blend, Benartex, Dear Stella, FreeSpirit, Henry Glass, Marcus, Michael Miller, Northcott, Riley Blake, Robert Kauffman, Studioe, Quilting Treasures
How much does shipping cost?
(Sorry we only ship to US addresses at this time)
- Orders $12 and under - $6
- Orders $12.01 to $59.99 - $7
- Orders $60 and over - Free Shipping
How fast do you ship?
Most orders are processed and leave our store within 48 hours and are sent out via USPS First Class or Priority Mail
Is your regular price really $8 a yard?
Yes. Most of our fabric is priced at $8 a yard (some is a little more). We come in after the big fabric stores have bought theirs, so we can get some great deals. It's all first quality and name brand. If you are willing to buy a design that may have come out last season, you can save a lot
What is the minimum cut on fabric?
1/2 yard is usually the minimum. But, if a fabric is put on clearance, 1 yard may be the minimum due to its low price
Do you carry notions, patterns, rulers, etc?
We concentrate on fabric. But we do have a selection of rulers and patterns from popular designers.
Can I order by phone?
Sorry, we only take orders through our web store
Gift Cards/Gift Certificates
We have Gift Certificates for sale in store, that can be used only for in store purchases. We do not have Gift Certificates available for the web store.
Why don't you carry (insert item here....wide backs, Moda, more batiks....)?
We have two rules for our fabric. 1) It has to be top quality. 2) It has to be a good price. If we can't follow both of those rules, we will not sell it
