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 https://needleandfoot.com. 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:
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.
"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!"
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!"
"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!
