Happy Tuesday! Today I am happy to be interviewing Kristi, owner of Zoey & Bean Fabrics and recent blog sponsor. Amazingly, this is the 18th Canadian Online Fabric Store interview – a great collection of home-grown Canadian shops!
Zoey & Bean Fabrics is offering you a discount and a bundle giveaway today! They are located in Leduc, Alberta and ship to Canada and the US. They opened recently and have a well curated growing selection of fabrics. I can’t wait to see what they order next, they already have a ton of my favorites!
“Zoey & Bean opened at the end of January and is continually growing- both with new fabrics and new friends! When I’m not running Zoey & Bean, I am a wife to a nerdy bearded guy, mom to two energetic girls and one lazy bullmastiff, as well as a full time Elementary Special Education Teacher. I sell fabrics I love, I hope you love them too!” ~ Kristi, Zoey & Bean Fabrics
I love that Kristi offers Michael Miller Cotton Couture Solids. They are good solids to use for garments because they drape better than most solids available. I’m going to try them out on a kids’ summer dress soon. She also carries Riley Blake Sashing Stash, which I haven’t seen before – and wouldn’t they look great on the edge of a quilt? Plus, super cute, you can collect “beans” as part of their Rewards Program to earn discounts to the shop!
Thread Riding Hood: Why did you decide to start Zoey & Bean Fabrics?
Kristi: I’ve always loved pretty patterns and cute things. I discovered a few local fabric stores but was constantly disappointed when I could not find fabric that I actually wanted to sew with. I researched starting my own store three separate times over the past 10 years and decided it was finally time to go for it! I now get to find those pretty patterns and cute things and share them with others!
Thread Riding Hood: What is your favorite type of sewing project? Quilting, Apparel… ?
Kristi: I am a brand new quilter and won’t torture you with any pictures of misaligned seams and bunched up backing, but I have so many plans for my next quilts!
Thread Riding Hood: What is something coming up in the near future that you are especially excited about?
Kristi: Zoey & Bean’s very first curated bundle was added to the shop recently. I’m looking forward to creating more and collaborating with others for future bundles! I am also working on building Zoey & Bean’s collection of basic fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics, Lecien and Dear Stella as well as increasing the selection of colours of Michael Miller Cotton Couture.
Thread Riding Hood: Thanks Kristi!
