It's Always Sunny in My Daydreams

Do you daydream of fabric? Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to own a fabric store. Some may dream of owning a bakery or candy store but I think I would grow tired of those. But fabric, I could never grow tired of fabric.

I mean, think about it, if you owned a fabric store you could see all the newest fabrics before everyone else.

And, unlike candy and croissants, you can enjoy them all you want without worrying about gaining weight.

Of course my first love in vintage sheets but some projects require new fabric (more on what I'm working on later) and sometimes it's just fun to coordinate the old with the new.

Aubrey Marshall has been living my fabric store daydream since 2004. She owns an online store called Southern Fabric in Middle Georgia (thus the "Southern".)


Her busy season is anytime kids are in school. I guess we have more time to shop and craft when the kids aren't "starving" or "bored."
Aubrey loves all the fabrics she carries which includes brands like Moda, Westminster, Riley Blake, and Freespirit. Amy Butler is her most popular. But, Aubrey has her own favorite right now; Lucys Crab Shack from Sweetwater.

Oh, did I mention she has dozens of  patterns too?

Okay, so instead of quitting my day job, I think I'll let Aubrey and her team at Southern Fabric do all the hard stuff and I'll just shop in my jammies.

Oh, and did I mention Southern Fabric puts news and discount codes on Facebook? Or, that Southern Fabric has an Etsy Store? They do :)

Thank you for stopping by the blog today. I'm working on a big project right now. I'm teaching dozens of ladies and girls at my church how to sew next week. I'll post on that another day.
