Why a picture of an Empty shop you ask?







You are probably asking yourself. "Why is a fabric blog showing me photos of an empty shop and a truckload of Ikea Flat Packed Boxes?"

Well I've got some "Big News" I'm opening a Fabric Store in Downtown Paso Robles, California!

Please come visit me if you are ever in the area.

Location:

Birch Fabrics and Gifts
585 12th Street
Paso Robles, CA 93446

I'll be posting photos of the progress so you can watch as my Shop Transforms. Yippee!! i bought this cool Trollsta hutch at Ikea that will grace the front window

Woohoo! I'm so excited for you! I love your fabric choices, how fast you ship, and the overall quality. Best of luck in opening your new shop. I don't know that I'll make it to your store in person but I will definitely continue to buy from you online!

FabricWorm said...

Thanks everyone! And no worries, I'll continue to sell online. The main reason for the shop is so I have room for more fabric. As you can imagine, My Stash, has outgrown my house:) Plus I'm really looking forward to meeting customers in person:) Wish you could all come!
