Okay, I am not really much of a drinker, but I do know that 7/7 can be a mixed drink with Segram's 7 and 7-up ~ right?  

Well....this post has absolutely nothing to do with that!  See that number 18 over there on the right?  Eighteen years ago on 7/7/97 Fabric Expressions opened in Barkley Village.  I always called it a spaghetti ranch location ~ long and narrow where you could grow or store spaghetti!?!  In July of 2000 the store moved to its current location and then in 2006 it became Fabric Expressions LLC dba Fabric-Etc.  I have to say it's been sew much fun for the last 18 years!!

We have been really busy at the store!  We made it through Shop Hop and we've enjoyed seeing folks from all over who are participating in Row By Row.  The trunk show a week ago today with Kathy Doughty was absolutely FABULOUS!  And now that I'm beginning to catch my breath for a minute or two, I am excited to start *playing* again with some fabric.  There are just a few more HAVE TO DO things to get checked off and then let's have some fun!  We've gotten some more batiks in the batik explosion area and a few more Kaffe fabrics to fill in some blanks.  Linda and I discussed a possible move to accommodate both fabrics better, so watch for that coming soon.  I am also sending out the July e-mail update so watch your inboxes for that in the next few days.

Speaking of which, I need to sign off and go send the next 1,000 of those e-mails.....have a super evening!
