To all our customers;
Pennie Fabrics is open during this concerning COVID-19 virus time. The store is thoroughly disinfected and surfaces are wiped daily. All our fabrics are in stock and no shipments are coming from anywhere. 
Classes will continue as we have a large space and no crowding. So if you are staying home, or other activities have been cancelled, this is a good time to do some sewing! Come get some fabric - you won’t be in crowds. And being creative helps relieve the stress.
We take this situation seriously, and encourage everyone to follow all the guidelines to protect yourself and others. In an abundance of caution we are changing our hours to "by appointment only". Our daily hours remain the same, but please call ahead for an appointment.
Pennie Fabrics is a wonderful, safe place to be surrounded by beautiful fabrics to stimulate your creativity. We are happy to answer fabric questions, and can ship fabric purchases.
We also offer gift certificates for your friends, family or yourself for future use.
Be well, and we look forward to seeing you soon. 
Thank you and stay healthy and positive.

Show & Share

Show and Share has been cancelled.


As much as we enjoy the sharing of projects and ideas, it is most important that we take care of ourselves and others at this time. Instead, we will all be at home sewing quietly but productively! So we look forward to seeing lots and lots of projects when we get together again!


 We will keep you informed when we know the next date for Show and Share. Meanwhile, classes continue with small numbers of students in our new, spacious classroom, and fabric shopping is still a very enjoyable activity!


Be well, stay positive and creative
