The site is almost complete, and will be launched soon! I think we may go live within a week! I wish we had more fabrics in stock, but we are going to grow, grow, grow as they continue to come in! The UPS man is now my friend, and I am sure we will be on a "first name basis" soon, ha! Met with another fabric rep today & hope to go to the P & B Textiles warehouse in Dallas tomorrow.

Another 5 bolts today from Windham......things are starting to come in & it's just like Christmas opening these boxes, only I am pretty much aware of what is in them! I wonder if it will feel this way down the road.....I am SURE it will. We also got in some great promotional items to include with the orders. Fax machine has its own dedicated line as of today. Found an awesome bookkeeper & met with her this morning as well. Forward we go....into the weekend....hope it is happy one for everyone!

Tomorrow we receive our first official shipment of fabric! They are beautiful prints and I just can't wait! We have started the work of adding product to the website as well (through our back-door entrance, as the site is not "live" yet). Will keep you updated through this exciting stage!

It has been a great week so far.....meeting with some wonderful people who will be my reps & selecting the first pieces of our inventory. I am ordering things with which to stock the store now, as well as future lines to arrive as they become available. I was also able to order some of the fabulous "ruffles knit fabric" that so many love. Although it's not a "quilting cotton".....it is amazing and we will hope to carry much more of it than our starting order allowed. Another appointment is scheduled for tomorrow......it's going to be a big one, and I cannot wait! One other little thing I must point out.....I drove all by myself to Dallas today....was the first time I've done that, and it really wasn't bad at all! I will be heading over there again soon, for sure!

Announcing a huge project I've been working on....I am so excited to share the opening of an online fabric shop, coming soon! Our web address will be http://www.fortworthfabricstudio.com/. We'll be targeting boutique designers & seamstresses, as well as quilters. This is a big endeavor, but one we are very happy to be working on. Things are starting to fall into place, and we hope to have more to share soon. Lots & lots of the background work has finally been accomplished this week. Next week, we will start ordering inventory....how much fun will that be?!!
