Elizabeth Morgan’s website, Church Linens and Vestments, offers a nice line of fabrics for ecclesiastical sewing. CLV is also a great source for excellent linen. We ordered some from her to make our purificators.


The rest of the site is full of wonderful tips and techniques that you’ll want to add to your knowledge base. Her book, Sewing Church Linens, is a must-read too. It is listed in greater detail on our Tutorials page.


La Lame offers a wide line of fabrics and trim for Ecclesiastical sewing. They have super helpful people taking phone calls too.


Get your fabric straight from Rome from Vaticanum. I particularly love the beautiful greens and violets of some of their fabric choices. They also have a nice selection of galloons.


Etsy has a few options located in the Ukraine offering reasonable prices on galloons and fabric. The shipping may take a little longer, but the cost savings balance that out beautifully.


Istok Church Supplies has metallic brocade fabrics and galloons. They are a Canadian company but their products ship from their “European warehouse.”


Tradition Ecclesiastical Tailoring offers a beautiful selection of liturgical lace, fabric, galloons and linen.


Textile Discount Outlet is by far my favorite fabric store in Chicago. It’s a little hard to explain. It’s BIG, like three-floors big, like there’s-too-much-fabric-to-look-at big. It’s a hedge maze of yard goods in a really old factory building with creaky wood floors. It’s staffed by guys sporting tattoos named Angel. The prices are great too, really great! Wear comfortable shoes and bring along your GPS in case you need some help getting back to the front door. Be forewarned that this establishment is not open on Friday or Saturday. Their phone is (773) 847-0572

They also have the best address ever!

You can visit their website below but it’s not nearly as much fun.
