How did you get started?
Nancy's Fabrics began in July 2007, July 16, 2007, to be exact. Nancy's was begun by Robert in a small town in Ronceverte, WV. Our starting inventory was 123 bolts of fabric leaned up against one wall. Nancy's has now grown to over 2000 bolts of fabrics. Do to recent medical problems We have closed our store front. Nancy's still carries a large inventory of cotton quilting fabrics fro the website and will continue to go to quilt shows. Nancy's is in the process of setting up a schedule for the new "Quilt Store on Wheels" service We will be offering. Nancy's Fabrics just purchased a small school bus and will be taking the store on the road. Email
us if you have an area where We can set up the bus.
Where did you get the idea for your small business?
It all started one January day in 2007. I, Robert, owner Nancy's Fabrics was in our local Wal-Mart and learned they were closing out the fabric department. I left after my purchases and went down to the Ronceverte Development Corporation and signed a rental agreement for a store front. And the rest as they say is history.
What’s the story behind your products?
Nancy's carries high quality cotton quilting fabrics from fabric manufacturers such as Benartex, Timeless Treasures, Quilting Treasures, RJR Fabrics, Marcus Fabrics and other noted fabric producers.
Where do you look for your creative inspiration?
Its hard not to get inspired every time I open a Fed Ex or UPS box. Its like Christmas all the time when you own a fabrics store or website.
What’s your background?
I started out in the stock room of Pacific Fabrics in Seattle WA. Once the fabric bug bit I only had to fined what I enjoyed doing with it. Since garment construction was out of the picture early on I played around till I found quilting and have never looked back.
What’s your vision for your small business?
Robert is looking to expand Nancy's Fabrics online presence while growing the "Quilt Store on Wheels" end of the business. I really enjoy quilting and quilting fabrics so want to make my passion available to any and all.
Yes, there really was a Nancy!!!
The lovely woman picture here on this website and on promotion materials for Nancy's Fabrics was a mother of 12 (Robert among them). She taught her sons and daughters to appreciate the beauty around them. Momma and Daddy taught their children that a job worth doing is worth doing right.
All fabrics Nancy's carries are 100% cotton fabric and 44 inches wide unless otherwise stated. All fabrics are sold by the yard or panel only.
