Growing and expanding since 1961, Allyn's began as a millinery supply store. (Millinery is the term used for women's hats.) After 54 years on 6th Avenue in Denver, CO, Allyn's recently moved to its current location in Englewood, CO, just five miles west. Sandy Wilson, President and owner of Allyn's, is the daughter of Wanita Sarasin, who purchased the store in 1961. Sandy literally grew up in the store, helping her mother and learning the art of millinery.
Customer service is a hallmark of Allyn's Fabrics. Staff members are exceptionally helpful to both experienced and beginning seamstresses. Because of our huge selection of fabrics and supplies, customers often need specialized assistance and direction in finding the items they are looking for. With their combined creative and sewing experience, the staff can not only guide customers, they frequently can offer suggestions and ideas that might not have been considered before. Creative brainstorming is as fun for the staff as it is for the customers.
In addition to purchasing the inventory and managing the store, Sandy also offers hat-making classes and she also offers her extensive expertise in textiles by providing private appointments for customers.

Love this place! by katymccormic on 11/13/2017
I've been coming to Allyns for more than 25 years... first for the material for my prom dress, then gorgeous lace for my wedding dress and now, with my 5-year old daughter to find lace for a flowergirl dress. The shop is amazing in the "seek and you will find" category. I would compare it to a well-organized antique store. In many cases, you might find yourself looking through bins of ribbons, or plastic bags of sorted lace appliques, or through shelves and shelves of neatly bagged cards of lace and trim.
The key with Allyns is to appreciate that this is a small shop with just a few employees, who really take their time like it was done in years past. If you call and no one answers, it's because they are dutifully looking for just the right piece of fabric, lace or trim for the customer. When you come, plan to spend at least an hour or more, because it's worth waiting your turn to be helped by their knowledgeable staff.
The store has been open for nearly 60 years, and I've found some spools of ribbon there that are nearly that old... gorgeous, not to be found anywhere else.
If you're wondering if it's worth the trip, just double-check the hours, allow yourself enough time in the store and make some time to visit the other great shops along Broadway. (If you're a cake decorator, check out Cake Crafts just south of Allyns on Broadway and Oxford... a similar treasure trove!)
