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.
