Knowing that my fabric may be used to make masks to help keep everyone safe during this time, I wanted to make sure people have easier access to necessary supplies. All fabric at Create by the Yard is quality, 100% cotton fabric, which is great for making cotton masks. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Thank you and stay safe and healthy!

Welcome to Create by the Yard where we specialize in designer, organic and recycled fabric. We have everything from brand new fabric cut straight from the bolt to cut up pillowcases and sheets!

Many people like the idea of being eco-friendly, but it is not always cost-effective or easy. For example, reusing old clothes and sheets is wonderful, but many do not have the time to pick them out, wash them and trim them before starting the project. That is where we come in. We do the finding, washing and cutting for you! With our selection of eco-friendly and recycled fabrics, your projects will be environmentally friendly so you can feel extra proud of your work!

Although we offer a large selection of eco-friendly fabrics, our shop also offers high quality, unique designer fabrics. With so many options, we are sure you will find exactly what you need!

About CreateByTheYard

Stylishly saving the world one yard at a time.

Hi everyone! My name is Kristin and I am the owner of Create by the Yard. This fabulous business started when I decided that I should learn how to sew. I have been crafting for as long as I can remember, but I never learned how to sew, so I figured it was about time. I took my first sewing class in Spring 2010, and I fell in love with fabric. Sewing, on the other hand, was another story. There were so many patterns, colors, styles, and designs and I couldn't get enough of it. After I discovered my lack of sewing talent, I still found myself attracted to the world of fabrics. I could wander around a fabric store for hours looking at everything around me and I would become envious of those who could actually make something with the beautiful textiles.

I have always wanted to start my own business and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I could literally be surrounded in something I love. When I started Create by the Yard, I decided to offer not only fun and trendy fabrics, but also organic and eco-friendly fabrics. Because of this, Create by the Yard has organic fabrics, as well as upcycled or recycled fabrics. These fabrics are typically bed sheets or pillowcases that have been cut into 'normal' fabric lengths, yards or fat quarters. In the future I hope to greatly expand the organics and recycled fabric lines as it has been fun to hear the great feedback about these offerings from our customers.

I am very excited to share my little shop with you. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments. I do my absolute best to offer exceptional customer service and I always love to help out and hear from my customers.
