Home Decor Fabrics and Upholstery Fabrics
Home decor projects are on display in your house, so it’s always good to spend the time finding the right fabrics for them. You have to look at them for a long time!
Bonus tip: be sure to order swatches. Home fabrics are typically more pricey but last longer than most other fabrics. Taking a little extra time to order some free to low cost swatches will save you from buying fabric you hate or isn’t right!
