I am looking for a place, preferably in northern Belize that sells upholstery fabric. Any suggestions?

You can go to where they make furniture and some will let you order from them. Other than that its Chetumal or Belize City. I am talking about the furniture makers in Corozal. I think they get there fabric from Mexico.

There is a very decent fabric store called Mikado's, which is directly across the street from Brody's in BC.

My choice would be to go to Chetumal. Parisina Fabric Store on the corner of Avenida Heroes and Obregon. ModaTela Fabric Store, about 1/2 block from Parisina on Heroes as you head toward the water. Or there is a upholstery fabric store on Avenida Juarez....from Avenida Obregon, turn left as you are headed into downtown onto Juarez....go to the top of the hill....there's a stop light...go 1 more block and turn left...it's on the right side of the street...can't remember the name of it.

I have bought fabric at Moda Tela Fabric but be very careful they pull it off the bolt right on the floor so quick you hardly get a chance to check it out. I had to return ten yards last year because of a grease mark every ten inches. They did take it back since I returned it the next day. Mikado's in Belize city I have had good luck in but its limited on style. And it is across but down the street from Brodies. Only about a block. I have also bought bedding and curtains there. Want to thank Jammin for the information on the shop off of Juarez. I will look this one up on my next trip over.

Mikado's had a wide selection when I shopped there for curtain and cushion fabric. It also carries "notions," including Velcro (something I haven't seen elsewhere). And some ready-made stuff, as bonbon mentioned.

Thank you everyone for all the good suggestions.
I did try Aventura Furniture, but they do not sell the fabric.
I think I may go to Chetumal for a day to investigate the options there.

Tofshonts,

We've recently discovered RX Upholstery. The gentleman's name is Jose Kelly. Phone number 623 7428.

He's located beside the new Mai's Supermarket Store on Santa Elena Road. That's the road heading to Chetumal.

Cheers,
Nappy

Anyone know of a good upholsterer in Belize city?
Businesses come and go fast in this economy, is this Mikado's still there?
Need to do 50 chairs, can do it myself if someone in the business sells me the materials and walks me briefly through it.
