Behind The Scenes | Employee Spotlight


We are continuing to recognize all of the wonderful employees that make Fabric Mart so amazing... If you've shopped inside our retail store you've probably have met the person in today's employee spotlight! Everyone say hello to Isabelle! 

Who are you? Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Isabelle. I’m 21 years old. I work in the store at the Fabric Mart.

How long have you worked at Fabric Mart?

I’ve been working at the Fabric Mart for about 2 and a half years.

What are your main responsibilities? What do you do?

My main responsibilities involve working with customers in the retail store. I answer customer questions, help them find things, and check them out when they’re ready to buy something. I also work to keep the store tidy, and I help fulfill online orders when I can. 

What’s your favorite thing about working at Fabric Mart?

I enjoy being able to help customers find the right materials for projects that they have planned. I think it’s cool getting to see what people are planning to make, and it’s very satisfying when we’re able to find exactly what they need.

What question are you asked the most?

New customers often ask me how to figure out the prices of fabrics. If you’re shopping in person, most of our fabrics will have a SKU number at the end of the bolt. Looking up the SKU number on our website will bring up information about the fabric, including the price. We have a computer available for customers to use in the store, but customers can also pull up the website on their phones if they prefer, or ask me to look up prices for them.

Do you consider yourself crafty?

I would consider myself crafty. I enjoy drawing and painting a lot and I also sew a little.

Favorite thing to do outside of work? Any hobbies?

Outside of art, I enjoy observing nature and going out on walks, and I like learning about the different plants and animals that I see while walking. I also enjoy playing the game Yu-Gi-Oh as a hobby.

Do you collect anything?

I collect Yu-Gi-Oh cards and Pokemon cards. I also collect art books and manga volumes.

What is a TV show you are currently binging?

I don’t tend to binge shows a lot, but I’m currently watching the anime Dungeon Meshi.

If you could only eat one dish for every meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

If I could eat one dish for the rest of my life, it would probably be some form of stew or soup, one with a lot of hearty vegetables. Either that, or curry with rice.

Drop some knowledge… What’s the best advice you were ever given?

Be kind. If you’re nice to others, then they’re more likely to be nice back, and I think it’s just generally easier to be kind than to be actively antagonistic.

Danesha from  Classyfied Life So first I must say that this entire challenge has been just that...a challenge! Two weeks ago there was hurricane Irma and I was blessed enough to not lose power and then I went out into the aftermath to capture some photos of my submission. Then two weeks ago I had a big trip planned so I had to do EVERYTHING  in two days . Then the BIGGEST challenge of all...THIS week! I got the challenge and I was super excited to have an extra few days and then before I could even get started I ended up in the eme

Made By A Fabricista: A great tee shirt pattern – or three!

Hi fellow sewists! It’s Andrea and I’m here today to talk tee shirts!  I love a good tee pattern…or two…or four. Despite having more than enough of them in my pattern collection, I’m always up for trying a new one. And I also have my favorites and tried and trues (TNTs). I love the versatility of a good tee pattern – dress it up with fancy fabrics to make a work wardrobe piece, use a high quality solid to add some basics, or anything in between. Today I’m sharing three patterns I’ve used multiple times and with many different kinds of fabrics - all a little different and all great beginner patterns too. First up is the newest addition to my pattern collection – the Upland tee and crop top by Rivet Patterns. They are a newer designer who I recently discovered when this tee pattern caught my eye. I love that it has multiple bodice options including a classic design tee and also a crop version with different separate and uniquely shaped bodice pieces. I first made the

Made By A Fabricista: Dreamy Florals | A DIY Dress Inspired by Son de Flor's Spring Collection

Hi everyone!  When I saw this floral print linen/cotton blend make it’s way onto the to-be-described table I knew I had to make a dress from it.  I’d been staring dreamily at all the dresses from the brand Son de Flor who had just put out their spring collection and thought, maybe I can throw together something inspired by them!  I grabbed three yards of that floral shirting and a yard of SWC5682w to line the bodice with.  I used Simplicity’s S8946 for its simple bodice block.  This pattern has a gathered rectangle for the skirt, but I’m a sucker for a circle skirt so that’s where I decided to start.  I folded the fabric twice and cut out the longest circle the fabric would allow.  Then got to work on the bodice, sewing up the darts and attaching everything. Now, I don’t love installing zippers.  I ha d a lot of trouble getting them to sit right, and no matter how much mental gymnastics I do when first pinning one side is always put in the wrong way.  So while I did have to unpick and
