Shop Tour: Haute, a delightful fabric hoard in Marhsall, VA

You won't believe this.  I still can't believe it and I was there.  There is a store in the tiny town of Marshall, Virginia called Haute.  I heard that Haute is a great resource for fabric and decided to check it out.  At first, I wasn't sure how to get in the place.  It's in a house that has a few different signs on it.  I didn't see one for Haute.


On the other side of this unassuming, green door lies an amazing collection of fabric. 


There are fifteen rooms full of fabric.  When I say full, I don't mean on pretty racks.  This isn't Calico Corners.  This place is for serious fabric lovers who are happy to dig and do a little hauling to find the perfect fabric and a great deal.




At first, there doesn't seem to be any organization at all, but after a few rooms, a pattern seems to emerge.  Florals.  Silks.  Neutrals.  Blues. Reds. 






Thankfully, I was looking for a specific color, so the blue room was where I concentrated my energy.  I found myself wishing I had a project that required red or pink fabric.  There were some gorgeous rolls in those areas.



These next few fabrics would be great in a little girl's room, don't you think?



The trim...on my goodness, the variety of trim was astounding.  





The women who work at Haute are so nice.  You'd think working in this environment would be overwhelming, but they seem totally at home. They seem to know where things are.

  1. That is really tempting. I will be near Marshall on Sunday but I bet they are closed. I'll have to arrange a pilgrimage soon. At least I have Fabrics Unlimited in F'burg.

  2. Someone suggested Haute to me today, and this post is the second result on Google (after the actual store). I love seeing Bees turn up randomly in my searches!


    Also, I had to laugh because these photos look a little like my storage area. I ... had a little compulsive fabric shopping problem for a while.

  3. I just went there today. It is a long drive from Fairfax but I decided to check it out anyway. It is so stuffy and clutter. After going through some trims and found something. I had it measured. Then the lady sitting on the chair changed the price much higher than the price tag. I was very disappointed and shock that they do this type of business.
