Love of fabric...It's been a delightful companion.

My mother nurtured this love during my childhood by "working willingly" with her hands. She sewed pretty dresses (some hand-smocked on heirloom fabrics) and blouses, fully lined garments, including skirts, vests, and coats for my sister and me to wear to school and church. Mom knitted sweaters for my brother and scarves with matching mittens for all of us to play in the snow. The walls of our home were graced by her lovely cross stitch samplers, quilted applique, and crewel embroidery. She also crocheted afghans for our family to be cozy while reading good books. I'm thankful that mom taught me not only how to sew, knit, and crochet but also all types of needlework as a little girl, including Swedish weaving, cross stitch, and sewing fabric yo yos for crafts. I loved to play with the array of colorful buttons in a big, round tin on her sewing machine. One special Christmas morning I discovered that mother had stayed up late on many evenings that winter to sew a beautiful collection of new doll clothes for me. Now, her sweet great-granddaughters play with my beloved vintage doll. Both my mother and my husband's mother left a legacy of cherished quilts that were carefully pieced and quilted by hand. As for me, I love machine quilting!

I'm a former classroom teacher with graduate studies in Reading Education. It was a joy to teach children at every grade level. Plus, I studied classical French cuisine for two years at a culinary institute! Reading, cooking, sewing, art, and music are some of the good gifts that we share with our family and friends. That's the very essence of a sweet life.

Thank you for sharing your time with me today. The launch of my own cottage industry is a new adventure and the fulfillment of a dream.

"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24

Returns and exchange details
Customer satisfaction is my top priority! I value my customers very much. This requires that Charm Cottage Fabrics will maintain the highest standards in selection of inventory, careful storage of all items in the shop, fabric cutting, packing, and shipping. Each customer receives brand new items, including new fabric that's cut from the bolt and new pre-cut fabric that's safely stored in a cabinet in a smoke-free, fragrance-free, pet-free fabric shop.

REQUEST A SAMPLE FIRST TO MATCH YOUR FABRIC AT HOME: If you're trying to "match" fabric that you've purchased previously from another bolt / shop, please contact me about it via an Etsy "convo" prior to purchase. It's best to request a fabric "sample" to compare it with the fabric that you're trying to match.

PLEASE CONTACT ME within a week, if there's a problem with your order. We will try to get it resolved as quickly as possible. Returns will be accepted within 14 days in their new, uncut, unwashed, odor-free condition. Return the item with its original invoice and packaging. Any shipping on returns will be at the expense of the buyer. The returned goods must include the receipt and your shipping address to receive a refund.
