Now that summer is here I have decided to create a blog for my shop - Fern Ridge Fabrics (http://www.fernridgefabrics.etsy.com/). It has been about a year since I opened my fabric shop and it is continuing to grow.
I have been sewing and creating gifts for family and friends for years. A couple of years ago I discovered Etsy and began selling some of my baby quilts and learning toys online. It has been a great learning experience and has pushed me to improve my sewing skills. Through Etsy I was introduced to designer fabrics that I don't have access to in the small town in which I live. I fell in love with designers like Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry - after purchasing lots of fabric from sellers on Etsy I decided to open my own fabric shop.
So here I am. My goal for this blog is to keep customers up to date on what is going on in my shop and to share some of the wonderful purchases that I have made on Etsy. I often buy things made with the fabrics that I sell - I will be adding some pictures and descriptions soon. (My latest purchase was a wonderful custom tote for this next school year!)
