Additional Information


This fabric is used like a chalkboard. Perfect for school projects, aprons, posters, smocks, or wall-hangings. To prepare the fabric the surface must be "primed" before use. To prime the fabric rub the side of a piece of common chalk over the entire surface from top to bottom and side to side. Using a soft cloth wipe off the chalk and repeat. To erase chalk, wipe the fabric with a soft cloth. To renew the fabric after use wipe with a damp sponge and follow the instructions to "prime" the surface again.

  • This item is sold by the yard
  • 27.5'' Wide
  • Wipe with a damp cloth

Blackboard Fabric is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy , inexpensive craft gift for Christmas! I just bought this last week and have already made two kitchen wall hangings. I used two fat quarters and made small quilted blocks of sunflowers around all the sides and a brown batik for the pockets. A couple of tabs for hanging and a piece of chalk in the pocket and it's PERFECT. Now to dive into my holiday fabric for a few more gifts :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am so excited about this fabric! I haven't been able to work with it yet though. I did receive it a little sooner than I was expecting, which was great! I'm also very pleased about the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Folded fabric This chalkboard fabric came folded which made it hard to flatten it. It would have been better if it had come on a roll.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Blackboard "fabric" Just received my yardage of blackboard "fabric" today. Haven't tried it, but was surprised that described as "fabric" was actually a pretty heavy weight vinyl. I was looking for a more pliable fabric. Won't bother to send back, but will do more research to find what I thought was getting as seen on craft shows..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Product - Not packaged properly!!! Nice product. Can be used for several projects. So very disappointed in it being sold on an oblong cardboard bolt. Cloth has crease marks from being wrapped so tightly around the bolt. Have tried heat and weights to remove the crease. Have not found anything that will remove the crease. Material needs to be sold in a roll. Sorry, but will not buy this product from JoAnn's again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I purchased it to use for machine embroidery to use when making a patch. Love how it came out and the blackboard fabric was easy to trim. I also purchased the chalk markers as they worked better than chalk for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well! I bought 5 yards of this fabric to use to cover a few tables at my daughters art themed birthday party. It works great with the chalk we have and erases perfectly too. After the party I can roll them up and easily store until next time. Really cheap/yard for what it is, plus I used a 40% off coupon too. I only wish it can a little wider then 27.5" wide.
