Chicago TV Shows Pop in for Cut Yardage Orders

Columnist Michael Sneed recently made mention of 3 TV Series currently being filmed right here in Chicago: “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.,”  and “Empire.”  Each of the sets for these TV shows uses fabric from Chicago Canvas & Supply. We have provided these shows with 9′ – 20′ Natural Color Muslin (flame retardant and non-flame retardant), Flame Retardant Bleached White Muslin, White Sharkstooth Scrim, and Flame Retardant Grey Muslin.

Set designers know that Chicago Canvas & Supply can have their fabric supplies to them within a few short days, which is imperative with so many moving parts and people.  The last thing they need is a long lead time for their fabric.  In fact, there have been days where set designers stop in a few times a day knowing that “cut yardage” is readily available.

It is great to see network television shows thriving in our city…and a privilege that we are able to be their go-to source for Chicago shows and events.


Need some fabrics for your upcoming show or event?  Check out our wide selection of set stage fabrics, including Scrims and Muslin.
