Esther's Fabrics is the oldest fabric store in Washington state. We stock unique garment and quilting fabrics as well as supplies for embroidery and sashiko for makers of all machine and hand sewn items. We look for unique fabrics, new and vintage buttons, jacquard, satin and suzani ribbons that cannot be found just anywhere. We carefully select unique products to make what you sew something special. Because, if you take the time to sew a unique item for yourself or someone else, your project deserves to start with something beautiful.
