When we started this journey many people asked if we would have any locally manufactured fabric. We have truly tried to meet everyone’s wants and wishes. With that said, yes! We do have many fabric lines that are local or made in the USA, but we also have a local designer! Ellen Medlock is a designer who lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
When we started talking, my mom remembered hearing of a local designer at different quilt shows and even remembered going into her shop some time ago. Many conversations later, we finally figured out her name and I was able to track her down. Although she has closed down her Tulsa shop, she still has an Etsy store and I found an email address. After drooling over her fabric line I asked… or begged… her to allow us the privilege of carrying several of her bolts. She said “Yes,” and I squealed in excitement. Not only is she local, I LOVE her designs!
Not love, but an oh-my-gosh-I-can’t-live-without-it kind of love! She uses bright colors and fun patterns. Her fabrics would be great in a kids quilt, but also work perfectly in so many other things. She has a panel to make a tote bag which is fabulous, and her kid’s counting book panel is to die for. It is just the cutest.
I think it is safe to say we are enjoying this process and pulling in as many different types of designers and manufactures as we can. We are adding to our inventory weekly and making more orders just as often. We really hope you will let us know if there is something you’re wishing for.
See you at the machine,
