If you landed here because of a link from Knot Sew Smart, Welcome! Please make yourself comfy and feel free to look around. This is definitely not my best post!!!!!!!!! and I was just about to delete it when it was used by ??? whomever writes that blog. I wish I did know who she is! Someone please tell me???
See the comments section for the reason for the edits: Debbie Cook has straightened out my mess. She keeps this up I’ll have to see where she fits on the payroll 🙂
Hmmm, my textile feed reports that Fabric.com has been purchased by Amazon.com. For some reason I can’t access the Wall Street Journal Online article but CNBC and The Canadian Business Journal had short blurbs. Fabric.com will continue to function as a stand alone online fabric store. The purchase happened Wednesday (yesterday) for an undisclosed amount.
And didn’t Fabric.com just buy DenverFabrics? Amazon now owns them both.
Amazon.com says that it will increase the fabric and accessories being offered. What I could see of the WSJ article Fabric.com now sells custom measured and cut fabrics, as well as patterns, sewing tools and accessories. I didn’t know about the patterns, sewing tools and accessories. I just knew about the fabric (pur-r-r-r-r-r) but haven’t bought from them in a very long time.
Many of us who make garments have loved this store for the great search capacity and low prices but haven’t been thrilled with the length of time it takes to receive our purchases.
Well, Wow, with Amazon now thrusting its great volume of buyers at Fabric.com we’ll just have to wait and see what happens to the shipping time.
Right now all I can say is ACK!
