Local Fabric Stores – other then buying fabric at big stores, I have supported some local fabric stores. Where you can find the best fabrics for masks making! (Local or within 2 hours of East Tennessee)
Local Fabric Stores
Keep in mind this list is local to me, As I live in East Tennessee. These are all within 2 hours or so from Jefferson City, TN. These small independent local fabric shops have the best fabric choices over the big box chains. You should really check out your local fabric or quilt shops!
These are in no particular order.
1. Cosby Fabrics & Crafts
This is the first one I got to visit. They are located about an hour from me in Harrogate, TN. Right near the Tennessee, Kentucky border. They have a lot of fabric to choose from. For example, I got coke a Tennessee Vols, M&M’s, Butterfinger, Pink Nursing, Breast Cancer Awareness, and more etc.
Don’t confuse Mrs. Cosby’s fabric store for being in Cosby, TN. Cosby is the owner’s last name and located in Harrogate, TN. They are on a road parallel to the main highway there, almost adjacent to one of my favorite restaurants: Haymakers BBQ.

This one is not that local, but still a good drive. It is around 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive from me. They are located in Berea, KY. They sell all kinds of fabrics too. I got my Navy one there. I also got some Peanuts fabrics there. Plus, the white Nurses fabric.

There was so much more I wanted but wow!
