Justin Fabric’s 4 W’s:
The story of Justin Fabric began when I received precious quilts made by significant individuals in my life. Often times handmade items become family treasures and heirlooms. They provide connections to the hands and hearts that made them. Memories that last a lifetime come by simply seeing or recalling a handmade item created just for you.
I began quilting in 2003 by assisting in making a quilt to give as a Christmas gift for my younger sister. I decided to make one for everyone in my family. (Not the brightest idea with 6 siblings, most having a spouse and children. What was I thinking?) Despite the unintelligent decision.... I hoped others may experience the wonderful feeling I have when receiving handmade gifts. Over the years, I have been blessed to give more than one hundred quilts to family and friends. I still get a special feeling when thinking about them.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, I started sewing more. I made a blessing dress for a niece and matching dresses for three of my nieces. As I was quilting a table runner using a quilting kit from Riley Blake Designs, the thought came that I should open a shop. Of course, when a thought like this occurs, you shrug it off. Multiple times the thought would come. Multiple times I would shrug the thought. Finally, I pitched the idea to my spouse and 13-year-old son. They both were supportive and said I should do it. The thought finally went into action and Justin Fabric became a reality.
