Service Vision - Our Promise

We promise to go the extra mile to meet your needs: we try to "think like our customers" and will treat you as we would like to be treated.

We promise that if you are not happy, we will do everything we can to try to make you happy.

We promise that if we do not have what you want (notions, books, patterns), we will try to find it and order it for you.
We promise that if the products you ordered are all not in stock when we receive your order, we will contact you to discuss how you would like to proceed.

"Thank you so much for the advice about my Back to Nature batiks BOM. I love -- love, love love -- the fabrics you suggested. I am definitely going to make a trip to your store when we drive back to Georgia. I am saving up money now. ; - )" - Jan L.

"You guys are so easy to work with! You always return my calls quickly and you're so helpful!" - Sharon B.

"Thanks so much.  I want you to know I chose you because you were the first to respond and when I called to speak with you – your staff was very helpful and cheerful.  I’m very grateful for your assistance and look forward to sharing my next project with you all." - Candace A.

Welcome to our Store!

We're glad you've stopped to visit us!

We invite you to browse our fabrics, books, patterns, kits, and BOM programs
for ideas and inspiration, and we hope you will visit us often!

At Fabric Essentials, we love fabric! In fact, our store name was chosen with the idea that fabric is essential to a creative life! We have over 5,000 bolts of Fabulous Fabric waiting for you in the store as well as online! We carry a wide variety of fabric ~ from reproductions to modern ~ with many kits and BOM programs in that same range. So, come have a look!

We offer many beautiful fabrics and inspirational patterns, and we specialize in Flexible Block-of-the-Month (BOM) programs. We are very selective about the BOM programs we offer: we look for great designs, quality fabrics from major manufacturers, and pattern designers who write great patterns.

If you wanted to design the perfect Quilting Block-of-the-Month program, what features would you include? We've asked ourselves and our customers that question many times, and our current program has evolved to provide the ultimate experience for you.

We invite you to learn more about Fabric Essentials’ comprehensive, flexible Block-of-the-Month programs. We provide unparalleled features that give you confidence and reduce errors, such as detailed cutting diagrams and generous fabric allowances. In addition, we provide exclusive larger sizes for popular designs. With Fabric Essentials, you are guaranteed to get everything you signed up for, and more!

The bottom line is that you will be making heirloom quality quilts and we want you to be successful. We've designed our Flexible BOMs to meet that goal!
