As you oooo and ahhh over all the beautiful fabrics on our website you might never think about how it got to this point online. It takes a lot of time and care to buy the fabric, prepare it for the site and post it online for all of our customers to see. You've met the buyers but now it is time to meet the warehouse staff who play a critical part in preparing our fabrics for the cutters to fulfill your orders. They unload the trucks, sort the fabric, sample it, measure it, roll it onto bolts and put it in its temporary resting place until it gets sent to a cozy spot in your house to be made into a gorgeous garment for your lifestyle.
