Hello BackSiders! Happy 10th Anniversary! We are so thankful for all of you for allowing us even to have a 10th Anniversary. Back in 2007 I started BackSide Fabrics out of my home as a complement to my longarm quilting business. It has grown into a full time (and then some!) operation, and we have recently moved into an office space! As BackSide Fabrics grew, I had to discontinue the longarm quilting part of the business as there was just not enough hours in the day. Its amazing to think how far we have come and what the possibilities are for the future. If you haven't discovered it already, our phone numbers have changed and are on our home page. I will add them to the bottom of this post along with our address.
If you are in the local Charlotte, NC area, we would love to have you come in and look at our wide backs in person, but please give a call before you make the trip as some days I am in the office alone and may step out to do an errand or grab a bite to eat. Also, we are not set up like a typical quilt shop; we are more of an office space as most of our business is online. Check out the pictures below:
This is our order packing and sample making station. The cart next to it holds all of our shipping boxes.
This is our awesome cutting table with our fabric racks behind, and our Quilters Dream Batting racks on the side. Behind the batting racks we have a small area for the mini fridge and microwave. We have added another cutting table since this picture was taken which makes it much easier for two people to cut (tear) the fabric for orders.
This is our back stock rack, the closet and bathroom area, and a table for paperwork. My worktable/desk area is to the right and not shown in these pictures. It's a small office space but is very functional.
When customers come in they can't believe I had all this in my house! I can't either now that I look at it all organized nicely in this space. As you can see, we are not set up as a typical quilt shop, but we will be happy to help you find what you're looking for if you would like to stop in!
If you would like to come by or call you can contact us here:
7804 Commerce Drive
Denver, NC 28037
We truly appreciate all of you that have supported us over the years; we
wouldn't be here without you. Here's to 10 more years! Happy Quilting!
Hello BackSiders! As promised here are some pictures from the Lincoln Quilters 25th Anniversary Show "Silver Threads" from last Saturday. It was an excellent show as always. My only suggestion for them is to add more vendors! :) Here are some of my favorites from the show; it was hard to narrow it down as [...]
Hello BackSiders! It has been 3 years; wait....what? 3 years? Really??? Okay, I admit it. It has been 3 years since my one and only blog post. I just did a double take when I looked to see what the date of that one and only post was! Its not like I hadn't started other [...]
As I wrote in BackSide Fabrics latest eNews, I don't have much time these days for personal projects, so getting a quilt completed last year was a major accomplishment! Here is what I wrote: "Since starting BackSide Fabrics, I am usually so busy running the business and quilting for others, that I never have time [...]
