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 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!

We take pride in the accuracy of our images and work hard to make sure what you see online represents our products and colors accurately. However, because every computer monitor and phone screen is different, we cannot guarantee the colors you see match the colors of the actual fabric.

More About Us...

The Store
We are located in downtown Concordia, KS. This business was started over 30 years ago by my mom, and I took over the fabric store in 2005. Today, we are online only. Mom and I still sew and quilt together whenever we can!

Fabric Essentials is located only 50 miles from the Geographic Center of the US - in Kansas, the heartland of the USA, and home of "The Wizard of OZ"! State Animal is the Buffalo. State Bird is the Meadowlark. State Reptile is the Ornate Box Turtle. State Flower is the Sunflower (that's why we stock so much Sunflower fabric). State Song is "Home on the Range".
