What is the primary mission of Nob Hill Fabrics?
To supply Albuquerque and the surrounding area with unique and hard-to-find sewing supplies. We go beyond the quilting cottons and fleece found in the big-box stores by offering silks, wools, linens, hemp fabrics, natural fiber knits and much more. We carry horsehair canvas and silk organza for interfacing, monks cloth, cluny lace and dyeables. And yes, we have a great selection of quilting cottons. Our fabrics come from all over, many of them designer ends. We are also the distributor of local design center "Silverado Home" remnants. Our staff and teachers are experienced and knowledgeable. We can help with fabric choices and yardage requirements to get your project going.
What else do you offer?
Classes! From basic sewing machine instruction to advanced tailoring techniques. We are hosting renowned sewing instructor Linda Lee of "The Sewing Workshop" to teach a pants workshop May 3rd and 4th. Local professional and award winning seamstress Leslie Ashcraft teaches a regular series of classes taking a student through the fitting and construction of a soft tailored jacket. We also offer silk ribbon embroidery, nuno felting, sewing with knits and bra-making classes.
