S.R. Harris. Minnesota's must-visit fabric store.

Welcome to S.R. Harris. This place is nuts-o. 
You'll find this store in the middle of an industrial park in Brooklyn park, MN; which is a suburb of the Twin Cities. Normally you wouldn't expect businesses in inconvenient locations such as that to do well, but this place is ALWAYS crazy busy.

So what is it, you may ask!? Only the biggest and best fabric store I've ever been in.
Go there on any sewing mission and you will walk out successful.

Fabric for miles. Ok. Not miles. but even this picture doesn't show off just how enormous this place is.
Anything materials could possibly need can be found here. Stop shoppin' around!

And what's the best part? All fabric is 50% off. All the time.
You may be thinking, they just mark it all up then! And there may be some truth to that, but here is a little example. Green Vinyl [purchased for my Anthro-Inspired Knock Off Chair] is $20/yrd at JoAnn Fabrics. And, $20/yrd at S.R. Harris. Hopefully you can do the math.

 Originally priced competitively, plus, always on sale!

The ends of every aisle are capped with bins of remnants for a fraction of the price of fabric off the bolt. No more work than digging through the fabric in my house.. hehe..

Nah, this isn't a sponsored post. I've never done one of those. S.R. Harris has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I asked my mother when she started shopping there and she recalled making little Lion King print pants for my brother when he was about two! Which would make me about, well, zero. This place is tons of fun for crafters of all kinds!

Now go! And, 

See this fabric in action in my Anthropologie Knock Off chair!

  1. I don't want you to feel like you're talking to yourself (although there's nothing wrong with that; I do it all the time)! If I ever make it up to the twin cities, I'll remember to take a side trip to this store. Thanks for posting. Tamryn

  2. I am *way* behind on blog commenting, but just know that this post has been bookmarked in my reader since you wrote it - I am insanely jealous of this amazing fabric warehouse! Like, I might have to roadtrip to MN from Texas just to visit :P And bring a Uhaul so I could take all the fabric home with me!!!


Hey, you! Thanks for commenting! They always make my day!
