Does anyone know if Chicago Fabrics is still open?
Only a few miles from Vogue on Roosevelt is an outlet Called LZ outlet, at 2121 W 21 st Street. Note closes at 2 on Friday, closed Saturday, open Sunday.
Depending on your outlook and needs, could be a giant treasure trove or a colossal garbage pit. 3-4 floors of fabrics of all kind, linen, knits, wool, home dec, and my favorite, trims, tons of them at great prices. I would allow 2-3 hours for a first trip to look at everything. If your time is shorter, tell the lady just inside the door what you came for and she will direct you to the appropriate area.
