The Fabric Nook in Granby, Colorado
The Fabric Nook is located in the historic town of Granby, Colorado in one of it’s original buildings, dating back to the early 1900’s.
Over the years, this location has been used as a pool hall, dress shop, music store, furniture store, and fabric shop. In the 1940’s, during its pool hall days, the tiny back storage room was a shower room.
The pool hall owner sold showers to the men living in nearby camps who were building the Granby Dam. Today, the building still has its original pine floor and high ceilings which gives the store a welcome open feeling.

Tina has been sewing for over 45 years. She is a self-taught expert at everything she chooses to do. She began her creative journey as a garment maker in middle school by designing and creating her own clothes. Later on, she took apart clothes from thrift stores and put them back together in order to improve her construction and alteration skills. She also worked part-time at the Fabric Nook learning the business side of the industry. Tina had many private clients seeking her out to alter their wedding dresses and design consultation. In addition to her sewing expertise, she also knits, crochets, and is an award-winning quilter.
As a visionary and an artist with an eye for color and design, Tina is passionate about guiding customers in achieving their personal and creative goals. She has a nurturing and entertaining personality, which makes her an excellent teacher, able to assist others in the creative process of constructing a quilted heirloom or project. Her goal is to empower and help make everyone’s idea a beautiful reality they can feel great about.
Tina supports the community extensively by donating to the local sewing programs, sponsoring students, and giving to all of the fund raisers for non-profits in the county. The community feels a deep connection in return to the long history of the Fabric Nook and to Tina and the people she has touched over the years.
