If you are a creative DIYer in the Boston area, you absolutely should not go another day without visiting Zimmans Fabrics in Lynn.  I love this place! 

The best way to describe it is like Mood on Project Runway.  When we first moved to the city, I went everywhere looking for the perfect fabric to reupholster an antique chair, and was finally suggested to Zimmans.  From now on, it's my first stop when looking for something in particular or to just get inspired.

Check out Zimman's.

Take a peek:)

Leather hides in every color imaginable. 

Trims for every color combination and style.

The lower level is a great place to find deals.

They even have Marimekko!  Some are vinyl coated, perfect for an outdoor tablecloth with pops of color.

Some of their newest arrivals are antique inspired French linens with writing, medallions, and stripes.
