Santa Fe Fabrics — Re-Imagined!

After over 5 years of serving Santa Fe and beyond with beautiful fabrics from many genres from around the world, Jack and I are ready for new horizons and more family time.  The retail store is now closed.  We’re so grateful for the experience of building and running a glorious place of such inspiration and joy. This is not a closure due to financial problems; thankfully, we’ve always been able to attract many fabric lovers who appreciate our wonderful staff and my taste in fabrics.  Your outpouring of thanks, sadness and support could fill a book and bring tears to my eyes.  I’m a lucky woman.  But guess what… we’re re-inventing Santa Fe Fabrics as a glorious online fabric store like no other.

The new, coming in September or October, will be a tribute to our love of textiles and how deeply important they are to us and to the world, to history, to humanity, to the arts.  If you dream in fabric, I hope you will enjoy the site as much as we’re enjoying creating it.  Woohooo!!

You’ll be able to order many of your Santa Fe Fabrics favorites, and many new ones as well. We’ll concentrate on fabrics from around the world, mostly natural fibers, with plenty of unusual, hard to find beauties of great integrity, that have always made me swoon. You’ll be able to order swatches of most items.  I’m on a new rampage of fabric bliss and you’re gonna love it!  While Jack and I are out finding new treasures, the fantastic Santa Fe Fabrics elves we all love will be busy photographing, writing, posting new fabrics, and filling your orders.  Yay!  Most of our employees will still be with us!!

So, the retail store is now officially closed and we’re focused on the development of this new vision. We hope to launch new website in September or October, so bookmark this page!  The online site will be right here at We’ll also send an email when it’s ready for you, so be sure to sign up for the list if you haven’t already.

The exact fabrics on this website now are sold out, but many similar ones will be available once we launch the actual e-commerce site in September or October. 

Thank you again for your incredible support over the years and hopefully we’ll be helping you with beautiful fabrics again, very soon.

If you’re in Santa Fe and want my help or thoughts about opening a full service high end fabric store again, the space may still be available, and the community is now in desperate need of great buttons, notions, patterns,trims, laces, and fabrics they can feel and take with them… it would be a shame if it had to end.  I can be reached at 505-466-3988, 505-699-9884 or

“Fabric is Life”  (thank you, Linda Chamberlin, for summing it up so well!)
