You’ll also find a large selection of European and Japanese fabric imports as well as hip domestic quilting cottons.

Our blog is found at www.StuntSewing.com, it’s a mixture of sewing projects, inspiration and family life."
SouleMama: What does a typical work day look like for you?
Corie: Having a fabric store in your home has its perks; I love the flexibility it allows. During these summer months I spend the days with my kids under foot, encouraging their creative side while I cut fabric, fill orders and scout out new items for the shop. The kids have voluntarily taken on various roles including iron-on assistant, product photography and giving the seal of approval or thumbs down on potential new products (could that be called quality control?)! We’ve done sewing classes, photo shoots and mail runs. Inspiring my children, feeding my dreams and encouraging other sewists is a great way to spend a work day!
SouleMama: What inspired you to start your business?
Corie: I went looking for unique patterns and fabric to sew for my own children and stumbled upon Farbenmix patterns, trims, and European fabrics. I knew I was on to something! I jumped in feet first and started one of the biggest adventures of my life. That was nearly 6 years ago and the selection of fresh and modern sewing supplies available just keeps getting bigger and so does our selection. We’ve branched out from exclusively European fabric and now offer more knits, Japanese fabrics and quilting cottons.
SouleMama: What inspires you?
Corie: I am continually finding inspiration through my own children and our adventures. Outside of that, my “go to” Internet inspiration comes a handful of blogging sewists, the Kickundblick gallery, and of course, flickr is filled with amazing talent.
