We truly appreciate seeing and watching all of the support with our community not backing down, but rather comming together to help hospitals, healthcare workers, police, the elderly, sick and friends and neighbors.

We would also like to send out a Giant thank you to the community for trusting Chintz-N-Prints to pick and choose the proper fabrics and the right materials for your projects so that you are able to continue to support your community and beyond by making these masks.

We will be posting pictures of fabrics on our Facebook page that can be used for these projects that are 100% cotton. Our elastic should be arriving at the end of next week and once it arrives we will post that also. We currently have biased tape, twill tape and tons of 100% cotton fabrics,

Hello and thank you for being a loyal customer to Chintz-N-Prints.

Due to the current situation, Chintz-N-Prints will be doing it's part and closing it's doors starting today, Monday March 23rd for an undetermined amount of time.

With this being said, we will continue to take orders by phone and or email.

Chintz-N-Prints is a small family owned business that started in 1957 by my grandparents and I would like to continue serving our customers for many more years to come.

Fabric may not be a crucial item at this time, but I do know that fabric brings much joy and can be a distraction while we practice social distancing.

Please do not hesitate to call the store 203-426-2022 and leave a message. Voicemails will be checked daily.

You can also email, call or text me 203-994-5601, check out our Facebook page, eBay store and our website.

We appreciate any and all support while we navigate through these very challenging,uncertain and scary times.

Please be safe and well!

It may be a bit premature to say SPRING is here, but with leap year behind us and St. Patty's Day, Easter and Mother's Day just around the corner, let's be premature! (Exclusions-Mom's-to-be.)

So, as we set our clocks ahead this weekend do not loose anymore time, waiting for the crocus to show their buds before you get going on the Spring Season; this just won't do.

We took a leap and obtained a good quantiy of NEW items. For all you who are anxiously waiting to Spring clean we are giving you a leg up and our door is open. (Literally)

If you are looking for outdoor fabric, upholstery fabric and multi-purpose fabrics we have them. There should be no excuse to hop in and get started, not even the weatherperson has predicted inclematic weather for the next few weeks, so don't miss out on the NEW STOCK!

Brrrrr.... Winter is here.

With all this time spent inside, let your creative juices flow. It is that time of the year for our Semi-Annual Remnant Sale. Grab your shopping bags Connecticut and head down to our half off SALE on remnants. Our loss is for sure your gain, so stock up!

We currently have a HUGE selection of various fabrics to help you create that special project. With Valentine's Day just around the corner.. yah yah... too early, but with the way time fliesit will be here before you know it. Also winter break for the kids is fast approaching and you find yourself looking for things to do inside, other than technology based avctivities. Why not provide the perfect hands-on activities? Not only do they promote creativity, team work, and hours of personal interaction, it creates something you can not buy... memories.

So mark on your calendar starting FEBRUARY 1st - FEBRUARY 15th, that you need to stop in the store for your almost free fabric.

Some exclusion may apply, see store for details.

Merry whatever you celebrate.. We wish you joy and creativity.

Every year we see some amazing ideas for homemade holiday gifts. One of our own has made some adorable gift card sized stockings, and angel ornaments from small scraps she had at home. We are selling them in the store for only $5.00 each, or you can come in and purchase your own fabric and make your custom gift card holder.

We have beautiful fabrics for heirloom tree skirts, fabrics to make gift boxes, green velvets to make christmas trees, ready made throw pillows, how to books, unique fabrics for table clothes that are sure to impress. We also have just enough time to make your dining room chairs cheerful for Christmas celebrations.

Did you know that plastic champagne glasses make great bases for christmas tree shaped treat holder, that you can cover in a green fabric with a bow on top? It is a unigue unexpected way to give a goodie. PS. Wine glasses make great bells.

How about a retangular pillow tied in to 3rds to look like a snowman?

Simple and quick projects that will wow any recipient.

Stop in with you the project you have in mind and we will get you started. Hope to see you soon.

Don't forget your last minute purchase of gift certificate we have them waiting.

Merry Whatever.
