FIDM Scholarship Store holds designer fabric sale
Been itching to sew your own gown but can't find the right materials? Here's your chance to get your hands on some discount designer fabric.
The FIDM Scholarship Store will host a special designer fabric sale beginning Monday. Over 2,150 yards of fabrics will be reduced from their original $90-$250 per yard prices. The selection will include brocades, hand-loomed silks, wools, French laces, tweeds, silk chiffon, cottons, metallic, hand-embroidered silks and more.
The sale was made possible by a donation from Nora Martin, a retired private couturier who had salons in Los Angeles and Palm Springs. The FIDM Scholarship Foundation Inc. will receive all the sale proceeds and grant scholarships in Martin's name.
FIDM Scholarship Store 919 S. Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90015
Hours: Monday, noon to 7 p.m.; Tuesday through May 25, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. (or while supplies last)
