Greetings from FWD!
I've been in the fabric business for my entire professional life - more than 50 years. I started as a teenager in Manhattan's garment district as a buyer, a seller, a middle-man, and have held every position in between. Over the years, I have developed relationships that have always allowed me to buy and sell the finest dress fabric, upholstery and drapery at the lowest prices anywhere. In 1983, I opened the first Fabric Warehouse. I started small, but went on to open nine more stores located throughout the NY Metropolitan area, and have never looked back.
I can tell you first-hand that the business has changed immensely since I first started out on 9th Ave. fifty years ago! Seven years ago, my daughter, Valerie, joined the business and has brought Fabric Warehouse into the Internet age by developing fabricwarehousedirect.com (FWD), the online version of Fabric Warehouse. Of course, she works with Lucille who keeps everything humming. One thing remains constant in anything we do - whether it’s in our stores or on the web, our goal has and always will be the same - to bring our customers the best selection of "designer fabrics below wholesale prices!"
Together, our FWD family will continue to meet all of your needs for your home decorating and craft projects. If you don’t see what you want, just ask us. We’d love to help, and we'd love you to become part of our family too!
Steve, Valerie and Lucille
