A love for sewing and a passion for fashion and design led to the creation of Needles and Knots (NAK) Sewing & Design Lab in 2019. Led by Shauna Smith, a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, it is a place to teach sewing basics and fashion design backed by her 20 years of experience.

NAK provides Tucson, Arizona with group lessons or private lessons. While specializing in apparel, they offer a range of projects accommodating various sewing skill levels. You can start with the basics of sewing but if you want something more intermediate, there are also other lessons available for you. The area where NAK holds its lessons doubles as an open studio with natural light and big windows. For $8 an hour, you get access to the equipment, including sewing machines, sergers and an enormous cutting table.

Sign up for NAK’s Fundamentals Package, priced at $85 and includes two three-hour classes and one two-hour hand-sewing workshop. Visit naksewing.com for more information on upcoming classes & costs.

Snowbird Season: Ways to Update Your Arizona Home

snow·bird

A snowbird is a person who migrates from the colder northern parts of North America to warmer southern locales, typically during the winter.

Arizona is an extremely popular destination for snowbirds. Northerners flee the freezing winters, to make their way to their homes in Tucson. Now is the time to assess the state of your furniture, drapery or decor- to ensure they match your current style, are in good condition, and are fully functional.  

Did you know the conditions in Arizona's climate might deteriorate fabric more rapidly than let’s say any climate with any amount more of water? Sunshine is great in particular doses, however, at the intensity here in Arizona your cushions could be literally disappearing. Pack rat damage and discoloration are also some of the things to look out for. 

Common Areas Exposed
to Sun & Elements

  • Indoor Window Seats & Benches
  • Sun Rooms
  • Pool Areas

Fabrics That Go Replaces Worn, Faded, or Weathered Fabrics, Inside & Out

  • Indoor & Outdoor Curtains
  • Lounge Chairs & Furniture
  • Slipcovers
  • Umbrellas
  • Outdoor Cushions
  • Pillows
  • Awnings
  • Foam Replacement
    (in Cushions & Pillows)
  • More!

Sunbrella


Fabrics That Go has a large selection of vibrant colors and the experts to sew them in any quantity, size or shape!  Sunbrella is the optimum fabric at roughly 54" wide, 100% acrylic.  It is top quality, stain resistant, fade resistant, water resistant, anti-microbial (non rot). Plus, care is easy- with home laundering (bleach solution acceptable).

UV-Resistant to Counter the Elements

Chemical reactions from UV rays cause degradation of fabrics over time.

Sunbrella fibers are saturated to the core with highly UV-stable pigments, making Sunbrella fabrics resistant to fading and the degrading effects of sunlight.

Find quality bargains on some of our best fabric designs and materials! You will find rock bottom pricing for more than half the price.

Frequent Use, High Traffic Areas

Sunbrella Fabrics are stain-resistant, water-resistant, and antimicrobial. All Sunbrella fabrics are engineered to resist mold and mildew. Should exposure to dirt and debris cause mold and mildew to occur, all Sunbrella fabrics can be easily and safely cleaned with bleach. Being easy to wipe up and clean, has led to the popularity of its utilization in high traffic furniture, both inside & out. Also, great for household with pets & kids.

Supporting Local: How Fabrics That Go Has Thrived In The Tucson Community

Fabrics That Go has opened its doors for Tucson for 74 years. With its longevity in the community, many may wonder how they have stayed in business for so long.

Few Local Stores Specialize in Fabrics


Everyone knows about JoAnn’s Fabrics & Crafts as a resource for crafting and fabric needs, however since they are also a craft store, they don’t have the most selection when it comes to fabrics. Fabrics That Go specializes in everything to do with fabrics - including buttons, decorative pins, and more!

They carry over 10,000 bolts of fabric so if you’re looking for something unique, you’ll probably find it at Fabrics That Go.

 

Family Owned


Companies that stay in the family always run with the same family values in mind. Fabrics That Go exemplifies just that. Claire Grunstein is the original owner and still comes into the store every day.

Nowadays, her son Bob Grunstein runs the store. Since they keep the business in the family, they also want the Tucson community to feel like they are family too when they visit the store.

Reupholstery Services


Where some stores stop at just selling fabric, Fabrics That Go continues by offering a reupholstery service. Some customers may be confident in doing a DIY reupholstery on their old furniture, but there are some customers that may be too intimidated by a DIY project of that scale.

Enter the experts at Fabrics That Go that can make recommendations and also complete the service!

Expert Knowledge


Speaking about the experts, the ones that work at the store can give great advice when it comes to your DIY projects. The great thing about being in business for so long, is that you see and hear about all the DIY successes and failures and how to remedy them or make them the best that they can be.

Of course they also have the most knowledge about the products they carry and the best uses you can get from them.

Free Classes


To top off all of what they already offer, Fabrics That Go have also begun offering free classes for kids and adults. Recently, they opened up a free beginning sewing class for kids. The class was so popular that it filled up.

The company hosts these classes in hopes of bringing together the families of the Tucson community.

Keeps Tucson Community In Mind


Claire Grunstein loves her Tucson community and gives back any time she can. With the free classes she offers to the fabrics she donates to the Ronald McDonald House to help families feel more at home while their kids go through a tough time in the Tucson Hospital.

Popular Fabric Styles For Your Living Room

Trying to figure out what your aesthetic is in your home is probably one of the hardest things when decorating – especially in your living room. This is what your guests will first see upon entering your home.

Whether you’re considering buying whole new furniture entirely, or you are ready to reupholster your old furniture, you’ll need to select the right fabric. Here are some popular fabric styles for your living room –

Spill-Proof Fabrics


Have you ever sat down with a glass of red wine and somehow gravity turned off and your wine ended up all over your couch? Stains on furniture can instantly date a piece and make it look older than it actually is.

Here are two types to consider, according to Southern Living.

Solids: Synthetic suede and faux velvet are typically polyester or a blend of polyester and nylon. What makes them great is that they look and feel real, but they repel moisture and can be cleaned easily with soap and water.

Patterns: Solution dyed acrylic can provide interesting and fun patterns. They also resist fading and staining, can be cleaned with bleach, and many can even be thrown in the wash.

Leather


Leather is another fabric that is easy to clean - possibly one of the easiest. If you have pets, it’s an even better option for your furniture. There is a downside though. The nature of leather is that it can and does wear out with time. If you have pets and they accidentally scratch the couch - that scratch will typically stay imbedded in the leather and become a part of it.

Vintage


If you’re into the vintage look, but you don’t necessarily want to have a chair that looks like you pulled it out of your grandparents’ garage, try keeping the pattern more on the neutral side. Stay away from traditional looking silhouettes when it comes to the furniture pieces to avoid dating the furniture even more.

Are you having trouble finding any of these specific fabrics? A local Tucson company called Fabrics That Go have over 10,000 bolts of fabric to choose from. You’ll be able to find everything from buttons to decorative nails.
