About Us

One of the best fabric stores in Albany, NY!

While Pookie’s Fabrics is new to the Albany, NY community, our fabric store was a long time in the making for owner, Charlie Petersen and her husband Jim. Charlie’s love for sewing and fabric started more than 40 years ago when she created a doll for her daughter. She soon began making dolls for her family and friends and her passion for quilting would eventually grow into an online business. Our wonderful products are available to you at our store in Troy, NY.

Stop in for all of your quilting needs, including quilting fabric.

Charlie is a military veteran who has also owned a clothing store and worked as a nurse at Samaritan Hospital. Pookie’s Fabrics was created to fulfill her love for fabrics and to fill a void in the industry. We realize that there aren’t a lot of places for quilters to buy fabric. That is why we have filled our store with a collection that makes it worth the drive from anywhere in the Capital District and beyond.

You’ll find more fabric here than you will in any chain or department fabric stores. Don't forget about our large selection of quilting patterns and books! At Pookie’s Fabrics, we also provide you with the personalized attention that you won’t find in bigger stores. We love to hear about your projects and creations. We love quilting and sewing and it shows in our enthusiasm for our customers.
