What People Are Saying
Great deals on fabrics for my patchwork projects, yarn for my knitting projects, and accessories for ALL projects! So much fun to look around and see what’s new and what people have upcycled into creative fashion! Attended a weaving show one evening and enjoyed Ragfinery’s hospitality too!
Love it! Best place ever. I can bring my projects here to sew. I can buy my fabric or yarn here. I can learn new things at their classes or ask for someone to sew something for me.
Great supply and selection of unique fabrics and clothes for your own sewing projects. Great cause and work experience for others too.
