Best Fabric Store in Bay Ridge


I usually don’t have the time to go to Michaels Craft store so I mostly go local in Bay Ridge:


best fabric store in bay ridge j and a


1) J & A Fabrics – April 2017 Update – J& A Fabrics moved to 90th Street and 5th Avenue (the old Robicelli Bakery spot). I am so exited about their new store because it is a lot bigger. They used to be in a cramped store on 83rd Street between off 3rd about 3 or 4 stores from the corner while walking towards 4th Avenue (Home Abstracts is across the street from it). They have fabric from floor to ceiling and a good amount of trims too. They even sell nice upholstery. I love this store. 



3) Norma’s Craft Store on 3rd  Avenue between 79th and 78th Streets sells ribbon.  If you need crafting supplies, talk to Norma because she will order it for you. Her shop is awesome and she is very responsive to helping people in this community get what they need. You can also message her on Facebook.  718-921-9200


4) Khan Fabrics and Notions – slightly outside Bay Ridge 6211 – 18th Avenue Brooklyn 11204  718-234-7323  Facebook page  – A lot of choices in solid color fabrics (very few children’s patterns or cutesy pattern like florals…..one polka dot – black and white only) good prices, a moderate amount of trims but nothing like Beverly’s had. They do have a large selection of zippers. I don’t love the store because it’s just solids in different materials – cotton, velvet, lace etc.


2) CLOSED  Beverly’s Trimming Shop – 79th and 5th Avenue  CLOSED in 2016  7820 5th Ave….this place had amazing items



5) Juanitas Bridal Store on 58th Street & 4th Avenue  has every type of ribbon and  trim imaginable – they are cheap too!  


6) Golden Thread – 4610 New Utrecht Avenue


7) Michael’s Craft Store doesn’t sell fabric, but they do have crafts and yarn. There is one on Atlantic Avenue.  There is also one at  410 Gateway Drive (it’s in the second mall at the Exit 15 (Erskine exit) on the Belt Parkway. 


8) YARN – When I need special yarn for a project, I head to the Brooklyn General Store at  128 Union Street – outside of Bay Ridge   They also have fabric at this store too.   


9) If you are missing Beverly’s Trimming Store there is Daytona Trimming at 251 West 39th or Botani Trimmings  on 36th Street in Manhattan. There is also M&J at 1008 6th Avenue and  Tender Buttons 1143 – East 62nd Street in Manhattan – Button Store
