Warehouse Fabrics, Inc. & Betty's Fabric Gallery
OWNERS: Larry & Betty Whitehead
A dream became a reality in 1984 when Larry and Betty Whitehead began their journey in the fabric business. On the morning of August 24th, the doors to Betty's Sewing Basket opened in the small town of Winfield, AL. The business started in a small 1,000 square foot house and with only 2 staff members, one of which was Betty herself. Betty's Sewing Basket became known locally as the place to shop for fabric, sewing / craft ideas, and you guessed it... excellent prices and unbeatable customer service.
Over several years and careful planning, the business has grown into two separate entities. Betty runs the retail store, which is now known as Betty's Fabric Gallery, and caters to the local community and surrounding towns. Larry heads our wholesale distribution center, Warehouse Fabrics, Inc. Combined, both divisions
are now housed in over 30,000 square feet... And (minus the 4,000 square feet used for our custom workroom), packed floor to ceiling full with decorator fabrics and trims!!
Our website, created in 2001, has enabled those all over the USA access to over 20 years of industry expertise. In addition, we provide "real" people customer service, prompt / reliable shipping, and extraordinary pricing. Shopping at your personal convenience is pretty nice too!
As you tour our website, note our custom designed dupioni silk fabric available in coordinating plaids, stripes, and solids... Browse our huge selection of drapery and upholstery fabrics including toiles, florals, chenilles, jacquards, polka dots, and much more... We have a vast selection of designer trims such as tassel fringe, beaded fringe, brushed fringe, bullion fringe, onion fringe, ball fringe, and lip cord... As an added bonus for our customers, we offer a monthly special, where we drastically reduce the price of a selected item for an entire month. And for our returning customers, we also offer a Frequent Shopper Program, which allows our customers to earn bonus points with every purchase!
But all in all, whether it be Betty's Fabric Gallery, Warehouse Fabrics, Inc., or WarehouseFabricsInc.com, we still pride ourselves on the same personal attention we were first known for many years ago. We do not have a huge staff like some other companies, we just have the right staff! We truly appreciate each and every customer and we are one of the few companies left that you can call and a live person actually answers on the other end! And if by chance you have to leave us a message, your call is always returned. That is why our business philosophy is and will remain...
LARGE ENOUGH TO HANDLE YOUR FABRIC NEEDS "BUT" SMALL ENOUGH TO CARE ABOUT YOU!
