mccreary fabric

kathiefJanuary 26, 2010

Love the Mccreary fabric that crate and barrel has. I want to buy yardage to cover my own chairs but C&B sells it for $165/yd. Anyone know where I can get Mccreary fabric for less than C&B sells it? thanks.

I am afraid that you are probably out of luck. McCreary sell to a limited number of very large retail chains and normally grants exclusivity for a particular fabric to a single chain (in your case Crate & Barrel). If a fabric is being carried by C&B it is highly unlikely that you can get McCreary to sell it to you directly. (I believe they are in Newton, NC if you want to try.) In addition, most of their fabrics are probably imports and the higher the price the more scarce the fabric probably is. My guess is that the price C&B is charging you ($165/yd.) is at least a 300% markup over the mill price -- so there is a chance you can negotiate with them.
