About Us

About Us:

Since 1945, Vogue Fabrics has become one of America's largest and best-loved fabric stores. Originally opened by Sy Sussman and Sol Farber as a small fabric shop for dressmakers, Vogue Fabrics orginal store has grown into a department store of fabrics covering half a city block. We also have two other Chicagoland locations, two internationally known swatch catalogs, a wholesale division at our warehouse, and this internet site.

We are now in our third generation of family ownership.

We stock thousands of bolts of silks, woolens, rayons, polyester, cottons, linens, drapery and upholstery, bridal laces, trims, notions, patterns from over thirty independent pattern companies, promotional items, and so much more. On any given day, our stores are crowded with home sewers as well as dressmakers helping their discriminating clients put together the latest designer fashions; costume designers preparing for plays; fashion students coordinating new collections; and groups of sewers chartering buses from all over the midwest making the sojour to Vogue Fabrics to see the latest styles that are not available in their home towns. Brides also travel great distances because they know they will find just what they envision for the wedding of their dreams.

Vogue Fabrics offers not only the most fabric choices, the finest quality, and dependable service, but also the best values for the sewing dollar. Our dedication to making the best buy so we can offer the greatest value was initiated by our patriarchs who were truly great fabric merchants. Their philosophy has worked for over fifty years and it will continue to lead us into the future.

We pride ourselves with our motto of "KEEPING AMERICA SEWING".

We hope you will visit our stores soon, or continue to shop our web-store. If you have any suggestion, comments, or critisms, we'd like to hear from you. We're looking forward to sharing the exciting world of Vogue Fabrics with you.
