I needed to buy fabric for curtains for our basement apartment, and buttons to restor a thrift shop coat that was gorgeous. I found both at Sew-Fisticated. The sales woman was kind and helped me match the right buttons to the coat's color and to my need (they needed to be durable, not fashionable). She explained how certain fabrics would work in a sewing machine for the curtains. She was very helpful, and the prices were great.
