Discount Fabric Warehouse | In-Store Pick Up

Order Online, Pick Up In-Store!

Did you know that we have an online division? If you’ve never visited before, GotFabric ( is where anyone can go and view a select portion of our Discount Fabric Warehouse inventory, purchase online, and have it sent straight to their home! The site is often popular with vacation visitors who need more Hawaiian print before they can make it back to Hawaii.
In the past, we’ve treated Hawaii orders just like any other orders that come in – shipping is charged by the dollar amount of your order, not by location, so the shipping charge on a $25 order is the same whether it’s being sent to New York or just down the street. However, we’re trying something new! Right now it’s being beta tested, which means that we’re working out any bugs or snags that we may encounter, and we cannot guarantee that we’ll be doing this permanently. So what is it you ask?

You can now buy online and pick up in-store!

Here’s how it works:
~ Place your order on All items on the website are eligible. Physical store inventory (prints that are in our stores but not online) are not eligible.)
~ When you reach the shopping cart to check out, select “Store Pickup” instead of a shipping option. (NOTE:  It’s going to list the address for the Hilo store automatically. At this time, this cannot be changed, which is why the next step is important.) There should be no charge for this option.
~ After you have placed your order and paid through PayPal (either with a credit card or through your PayPal account), please e-mail within 24 hours letting us know that you have selected in-store pick up, your order number (you will be receiving a confirmation with your order number after the order has been placed), and which store you would like to pick up at.  (If someone else will be picking up your order for you, please note this in your e-mail as well.) You can choose any of our Discount Fabric Warehouse locations! If we do not hear from you within 24-hours, we will send one e-mail asking for confirmation on where the order will be picked up. Otherwise, we will send the order to the DFW location nearest to your shipping address. If it is not an address within reasonable distance of any of our DFW locations, you will be invoiced for shipping charges to your home.
~ Once we’ve received your order, we will process it and ship your order to your selected DFW location. You will receive an e-mail when your order is in transit to the store and a phone call when it is ready for pick-up. (Please note that for this testing period, the number of times we ship to each store will depend on volume. It may take up to a week for your order to arrive at your selected store.)
~ When your order is available, swing by your DFW store to pick it up!
Unfortunately, there are also some not-so-amazing things that we need to let you know about as well:
~ E-Wards and all current in-store promotions are not applicable on GotFabric. The VIC program is not transferrable from in-store to online and your purchase will not accrue any points.
~ You can only order what is currently on our website. The inventory on the website is quite a bit smaller than the inventory in store, but we often carry prints that are no longer available in-store.
~ Yes, you have to pay online. You cannot place an order to be paid for at pick up.
If you have any questions regarding this program, please e-mail me at or at

It’s Back! One-Day Only Warehouse Bulk Sale! | DFW Hilo

It’s time again for the Discount Fabric Warehouse Bulk Sale!

On Saturday, October 14, 2017, from 9AM – 6PM, we’ll be opening the doors to our “District” Warehouse, normally closed to the public, for our Huge One-Day Bulk Sale!

This isn’t happening at every store. This is only happening at the warehouse across the parking lot from the Hilo Discount Fabric Warehouse store!

For the past several years, we’ve done this sale, with many of you taking the time to come by and check out what we have. Folks save up all year to come and “splurge” on fabrics and notions, along with other “treasures” such as toys, pareos, and other fun things that have popped up over the years, and take advantage of the 50% or more savings.
Each year, we take some time to decide whether or not this is going to be the year that we don’t do the warehouse sale. And each year we find a reason to keep doing it. This sale takes us a week to prepare for and then two days to clean up after, so it’s no small feat for us to be able to do this. However, seeing the smiles on the faces of customers when they score a great deal on fabric they’ve been waiting for or hearing their stories of how much the sale means to them and their business, makes us want to offer this event again.

There are huge discounts to be taken advantage of! Many of our prices at the sale are going to be at wholesale or below! You can save 50% or more on some of the items on sale. Fabrics are as low as $1 a yard! But keep in mind that this sale may not be for everyone. All fabric will be sold with a minimum cut of 5 yards, and some items will be sold only by the full bolt or roll. However, if you need yardage, this sale is for you!

Here’s a partial list of some of the awesome deals that you may find if you join us (Please note that we’re still finalizing this year’s list and we may or may not be offering everything on this list):
* Huge group of fabric priced at $1 a yd! Lots of solids, some prints, many heavier weights, 44″- 60″ and some fashion goods ,, these all will be on bolts and rolls and normally would sell for $4.99 to $10.99 yd! ( not done pulling but there will be 100’s to choose from!)
* Patterns for $1!
*Notion commotion ! We have an eclectic mix of bamboo handles, home dec grommets, patches, etc. originally priced to $12.99 that will disappear for $1 each.
* 50% off on bulk purchases (min 5 yd cut) of muslin, canvas, home decor, cotton prints, rayon, ITY, polyester, cotton lawn, eyelet, pre-quilted, rice bag print, fleece, fashion, home decor fabrics including tropical prints!
* Bulk notions are back with bags of buttons, bulk zippers 5/$1, bulk lace trim and more!

Please understand that this sale is only at the Hilo Warehouse, and not at any of the other stores and limited to the stock on hand, no rain checks, no tomorrow – One Day Only! (We unfortunately cannot hold fabrics, give prices over the phone, or do stock checks during the event for warehouse sale specific items. Fabric is first come, first served. So come early for the best selection as things go fast!)

If you’d like more information on our Bulk Sale, please contact the Hilo store or send us an e-mail at
See you there!
