Waechter's closed but a selection of fabrics is currently being offered by another purveyor in the same location. Bon Vivant Co is a second-hand and handmade home goods store with fine consignment, select finds, art and antiques. Also offered inside is a selection of vintage and organic cotton fabrics, knits, patterned, as well as custom printed fabrics from a local... More

Sadly, this store has closed for business. I went there a couple of months ago and it was their last week to be open.

This store has exceptional garment fabrics. It is one of the better privately owned fabrics stores that I've seen for fashion sewing in a long time. I did however think it was over priced compared to other stores that I've been in (and I'm not talking about Joanne's or Hancocks here..). Watch out for prices but this is really a... More

I do a lot of garment sewing, and this shop is a treasure! It's the kind of place with all the nicer, natural fabrics (cotton, silk, wools) that are so difficult to find in chain retailers now. And their button selection was drool-worthy. They have a nice comfy chair for a husband to sit in after he's tired of trailing... More

I have been traveling to Asheville for years but somehow have missed this delightful store. Located near Biltmore Village, this store looks like nothing special from the exterior. But inside, it is a delight for the eyes. Most of the patterns have been made up so it is possible to look at the finished product. There is a wall of... More

Waechter's is outstanding, both in the selection of fabrics available in the shop, and in the service provided to the "by mail" customer. Their prices are very reasonable, too! At one time I would have said "best outside of New York", but the situation in NYC has changed and many of the fabric stores are gone. So, we people who... More

I would like to preface this review by saying I'm not a huge "review" writer - always seem to get too busy, however, after purchasing fabric from Waechter's I HAD to let everyone know how wonderful they are!! I am getting married this November at a resort in the Bahamas and knew I wanted my wedding dress to be dainty... More

Waechter's is the most unbelievable fabric store in the Southeast. The selection and quality are unrivaled in this area. If you are a skilled seamtress or wish to find the "perfect" fabric for a special occasion and have your dressmaker make it for you, this is the only place to recommend, short of NYC. For anyone with interests in fabic... More
