fabric haul: Fabric Depot

Last month I spent some time in Portland, Oregon, as blogged before.  My mom, two aunts and I spent a day shopping for fabric.  We kicked off our tour with Bolt, which I wrote about last.  Next up was Fabric Depot all the way out on SE 122nd Ave:

I bought more than 3 yards for around $20.  Dang!  The remnant section is the place to be; these pieces of fabric are some kind of insane deal.  50% off maybe?  Fabric Depot is a vast and overwhelming store, containing fabric of all types.  Much of their offerings are quilting-weight cotton, grouped by collection or designer, sometimes manufacturer, and eventually by theme.

Fabric Depot is not a quilt shop per se and as such does not have that welcoming, inspiring atmosphere.  It's bustling and warehouse-like with long lines at cutting and checkout, but that's the cost of buying fabric on the cheap!  Their fabric seems to always be on sale a little, and it's a good place to go if you have an idea of what you are looking for.  Chances are Fabric Depot has it, and at a discounted price.
