Loves Off The Bolt!

We love it when anyone comes to our store and lets us make them happy. We especially like it when an important blog like visits our store, loves it, and tells the world about us.

Here is their own rave about Off The Bolt Fabrics.


A long overdue small re-upholstery job, has had me scrounging around fabrics stores lately looking for that perfect fabric for a vanity bench. A friend recently reminded about Off the Bolt, so I decided to check it out.

This well organized store has bolts and bolts of better upholstery and home décor fabrics at 20%-50% off original retail. Though not quite as cheap as downtown, the parking is easy and free and the savings here are solid.

Fabrics are separated by use… either upholstery or home décor/ curtains. You’ll find velvets, chenille’s, cotton blends, poly, silk and silk blends, linen, micro-fiber suede’s, vinyl’s, leather hides and more by well known textile houses like Kaufmann, Waverly, Covington, Robert Allen, Merrimac and others.

Good buys include a Kaufmann upholstery fabric for $19.95 a yard instead of $31.95. A Covington cotton print was $12.95 instead of $16. A Waverly green floral cotton was $23 instead of $35. A chenille cotton was $14.95 a yard instead of $40. A sheer window fabric w/ embroidery is here at $8.95 a yard instead of $12. A washable silk is $13.95 instead of $16-$18. Some pinstripe window or upholstery fabric was $11.95 instead of $15. A Merrimac tweeded textured fabric (very mod) was $20.95 a yard instead of $60-$80 regular price. An incredible silk jacquard was $49.95. Retail would range upwards of $100 a yard.

Another advantage of shopping here is they have an in-store upholstery company, Di Giacomo Upholstery. Pricing is more than fair with labor prices ranging from $695-$795 for a basic 7 foot sofa. After looking at some finished products, I can attest, the workmanship is very good.

They also do curtains with a labor cost of roughly $45 a panel. The people here are nice, knowledgeable and fair to deal with a 2-3 week turnover time for custom upholstery and window coverings.

Do check out the back corner for discontinued, remnants and drastically reduced fabrics. A nice burgundy velvet was $9.95 a yard instead of $27. A Waverly floral was $9.95 instead of $20.

They have pre-cut samples for you, if you need to see it at home. For my little “do it yourself” job, I got a yard of poly blend jacquard fabric at $12.95 instead of $20 to cover the seat of my antique vanity bench.

At Off the Bolt, they make it easy to shop, cheerfully answer questions, will offer up ideas and solutions to your fabric and upholstery needs… all at affordable prices. You can bet, I’ll be back.
