If you get on this site, you want to type in cities/town. Hit the "k" for the heck of it and Kokomo is nearby.Ky may be another close locale.

Used to be one in Broadway, VA, but since my DD moved from VA to MS, I don't get over there any more, and so don't know if it is still open. We always found some fabric there we couldn't do without.

Yes, the one in Bowling Green, Ohio is awesome. It has a little bit of everything. Bowling Green is about 20 miles south of Toledo.

I used to go to Ben Franklin with my sister, I can't remember the town, Siren, Webster - I can't remember, but it was the neatest store and they had fabric like you wouldn't believe. I always stopped there with her and buy a whole slew of fabric. Loved that store. Now, I can't remember if they closed the store or if they discontinued the fabric end. Edie

I loved going to the Ben Franklin stores, along with F.W. Woolworth's and TG&Y.

If you know of any, I would appreciate knowing about them. I really enjoyed shopping at them when I could find one.

Thanks so much,

Maybe this could help
