The Story Behind Needle and Foot

I have been sewing and creating with fabric since I was 12. Not going to do the math for you, let's just say this was quite a while back. Since retiring, I am able to spend much more time on my passions; sewing and quilting. I blog about my sewing and quilting at The name of my site came about through some funny family discussions about my tendency to leave pins and needles scattered about the house and my husband's misfortune to have stepped on several of them (barefoot)! You can read more about that on my blog.

When I was growing up, my father owned a fabric shop in Northern California. I loved working there on Saturdays and on the weekends. Having my own fabric shop on Etsy is so satisfying. The world has certainly changed since I worked for my father in the 1970's and having an on-line shop is quite different from a brick & mortar store. But serving my customers is still my priority just as it was for my dad back in his shop. I strive to stock high quality fabrics, in a range of styles so shoppers are able to find just the right piece.

Unique to my shop are the fat quarter bundles I sell. I love to have a matched set from a certain line or fabric designer but feel it is costly to buy the entire fat quarter bundle. In my shop you will find a wide selection of fat quarter bundles from various lines that include a limited selection of fabrics from the line. Or, you might find a bundle with a theme, rather than being from an entire line. I hope these will be a fun, affordable way to build your quilting stash.

I also enjoy creating useful, attractive items for the home and hope that my customers will enjoy using them or giving them as gifts. As an Etsy seller I have had the opportunity to make many custom items for my customers. I love the interaction with my customers and am so happy to make a custom piece that is just what they wanted. If interested, contact me through this shop.

Working with my customers is so satisfying. Here is some feedback I have received lately:

From Carol:
I received my order of 6/15 on Monday, June 18. Wow! Great service, fabric is lovely. Thank you so much for such prompt attention. Have a blessed day.

From Ally:
"I just received both packages and I'm happy to say I'm am thrilled to have them! Opening your packages gave me that happy, "Christmas morning" feeling. I thank you very much and promise to turn these beautiful pieces into a 2nd treasured quilt. You have a life-long customer here!"

From Ann:
"Hi Bernie,
I received my order today and just wanted to thank you for your “extras”. The vintage sheet is beautiful and will be added to my collection. Also, my husband thanks you for the chocolates-those are his favorites.

You are wonderful and treat your customers well!"

From Sandy:
"Hi Bernie! Thank you so much for treating my small order as if I had ordered 10 yards of a print! Can’t wait for your fabrics to arrive-they will be the first 2 Sue’s that I make and remember from whom I ordered them! Have a great day!

Returns and exchange details
If you are unsatisfied with a purchase from Needle and Foot, you have 14 days to return it in As New condition. I will refund your purchase price, less the shipping cost. If you are unhappy with a fabric purchase, I will accept a return. Once I confirm the condition of the fabric returned to me, I will process your refund. There will be a 10% restocking charge deducted from your refund. I will not refund your shipping cost and you will pay the return shipping expense if sending an item back to me.

I will ship within three business days of your purchase using USPS, unless otherwise specified. I will box or package everything such that it arrives in perfect condition. I will send it as quickly and also as economically as possible.


I will ship via the US Postal Service.

While packages can arrive as quickly as 7 days, they often take 2 to 3 weeks and can take as long as 6 weeks to arrive.

Packages generally leave the US within 2 days of mailing. The speed with which they travel once they leave the US is out of our hands--delays are usually as a package traveling through customs in the destination country.

Customs fees/duty taxes/VAT (Value Added Tax) are the buyer's responsibility.

Please note that the UK has specifically been more strict about collecting VAT since the Olympics, and they state you "will have to pay import VAT on goods with a value that exceeds £15". See that on the UK customs site here:

Tax on goods ordered from or bought abroad

Please note that If there is a mistake with your shipping address that is my fault, I will resend at no cost. If the mistake is yours (ie wrong address listed in Etsy or PayPal) then you will be expected to pay for shipping a second time.
