Donelle Fritz's Profile

About

I am married with 3 boys and even though my husband says that I am the queen of the house, my time has been filled with lots of sports and boy activities, so I love to use my creativity to quilt, knit, bake/cook, flower arranging and digital photography!

I have been an executive recruiter for over 20 years and started my own search firm 12 years ago. I spend the majority of my day on the phone/computer recruiting top talent for companies across the globe, but have always needed something to allow me to decompress from the intensity and fast pace of the job.

That's where my love of fabric, colors and quilting come in! My husband has always been supportive of my hobbies, but jokes that I should consider buying wholesale and would save a lot of money! :) Which brought me to starting Designs By Donelle as an online fabric business with the hope of eventually…

I am married with 3 boys and even though my husband says that I am the queen of the house, my time has been filled with lots of sports and boy activities, so I love to use my creativity to quilt, knit, bake/cook, flower arranging and digital photography!

I have been an executive recruiter for over 20 years and started my own search firm 12 years ago. I spend the majority of my day on the phone/computer recruiting top talent for companies across the globe, but have always needed something to allow me to decompress from the intensity and fast pace of the job.

That's where my love of fabric, colors and quilting come in! My husband has always been supportive of my hobbies, but jokes that I should consider buying wholesale and would save a lot of money! :) Which brought me to starting Designs By Donelle as an online fabric business with the hope of eventually opening up a quilt shop teaching others about the lost art of quilting and how easy the precut fabrics today have allowed us to whip up a quilt in our hustle and bustle world!

If you are new to quilting, there are some great and simple tutorials by the "Missouri Star Quilt Company" on YouTube and their website http://quiltingtutorials.com/, which use the pre-cut fabrics and make quilting so fun and easy that anyone can learn to quilt! (And no, they are not paying me to say this, but I love how Jenny reduces what looks complicated into something very simple and easy)! I have also purchased several of their templates and fabric before I started my own business.

I have worked hard to figure out a price point that allows me to offer quilt shop quality fabrics at an affordable price and yet still make a profit to show my accountant and husband! :) After all, as my husband would say, how does it make sense to buy fabric and cut it apart, only to sew it all back together again! We must be a gluten for punishment or absolutely love what we do!

Your purchases will always ship out the next business day and I will give you the best shipping prices available with combined shipping. Etsy doesn't make it very easy to combine shipping on different types of items, so if I can ship it for less, be assured that I will refund any extra shipping cost back to you!

I hope you will enjoy your fabric and make "Designs By Donelle" your favorite place to shop!
