Located on Grand Avenue, one of the Twin Cities’s favorite shopping streets; Treadle Yard Goods – a fabric store in St Paul, Minnesota has been my go-to sewing supply destination for 25 plus years.
If I am planning any kind of clothing project, I typically start my fabric search here. They have quality, natural fiber fabrics with beautiful colors and prints.
It’s always fun to look at everything in stock whether it fits your project or not. It’s also mandatory to check out the remnant bin to uncover more fabric treasures at a discount! 😃
Where to Buy Beautiful Fabrics
Treadle specializes in natural fiber fabrics for apparel. They have a well-curated collection of fabrics, including silk, wool, linen, rayon, cotton, oilcloth, and bridal lace. Some of the fabrics are imported from the mills of France and Italy.
The store has collections that include cotton prints from top designers like Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, and Joel Dewberry.
You will also discover beautiful fabrics from the likes of Pendleton, Liberty Of London, Malden Mills, Alexander Henry, Free Spirit, Michael Miller, Andover, Westminster Fibers, Seven Islands, Kokka, Logantex, Robert Kaufman, and many more.
Shopping for Bridal Fabrics
They stock a wide selection of bridal fabrics and lace also. Ever-popular Chantilly lace, beaded and embroidered Alencon, and elegant Guipure would work beautifully with pure silk chiffon, taffeta, shantung, or dupioni.
All can be found here at Treadle!
