About

Fabric for People Who Make Fashionable Clothes

April Kling Meyer started a Tumblr in 2010 to narrow down her ultimate dream. It ended up being pictures of fabric she saw in her travels and in her part time job in a national chain fabric store in Austin, TX. Pretty soon people were asking her why she didn't just open her own store. What April noticed was that there were many small, independent fabric stores that catered to quilters, crafters, interior decorators and upholsterers in Austin, but none at that time just for tailors, fashion designers, and home sewing enthusiasts. April began attending fashion events in Austin to informally poll the industry participants how they'd feel about a fabric store just for fashion. The response was immense. She built up an inventory beyond her sizable stash and began doing independent trunk shows-- literally buying out a bar and selling fabric off of card tables. These events would regularly pull in over $1,000 a night or over a weekend. It became clear that Austin was ready for the kind of niche fashion fabric store April had envisioned. Fabricker opened in central Austin near the University of Texas campus in January 2012.

    I've been working in the fabric industry since 2001. I'm here to make it better, especially for those of us who don't live in the big coastal cities and like high quality, higher end fabrics for apparel fashion.
