Today's post is by Renee at Pink Castle Fabrics, our newest business member. Please click over to Pink Castle Fabrics and check out their fabulous selection!
Pink Castle Fabrics resides in beautiful Ann Arbor, Michigan, where we fulfill the modern fabric needs of quilters all over the world. Our diverse inventory is our pride and joy; yes, we have the modern staples you expect - like Windham, Art Gallery, and Cotton+Steel - but also one of the best selections of Japanese imports anywhere in North America, classic favorites like Liberty Tana Lawn, and a huge assortment of solids from a variety of manufacturers.
Brenda is our owner and inspiration! She first came to quilting while expecting her son, but quickly realized there wasn't anywhere in Ann Arbor to cater to her fabric tastes. Having always wanted to own a business, she decided to be her own supplier, buying fabric by the bolt and selling what she didn't need to friends and on her Etsy shop. As sales bloomed, Pink Castle moved beyond Etsy to became its own web-store, and then a year-and-a-half-ago we left behind the basement of Brenda's house and moved into our very own brick and mortar shop! We just moved into a new, even more spacious location and are loving it...we now have more room for fabric, for classes, and for pretty much everything!
Today, Pink Castle has a staff of nine people – Brenda, Jason, Whitney, Me (Renee), Kristen, Hayley and Hayley, Josh, and Cale. And we continue to look for new ways to serve our customers, from an ever-expanding range of monthly clubs to in-store events like classes and book signings to our bi-annual Camp and Glamp Stitchalot events. The vast majority of our business remains online, where our customers can always shop for exactly what they want 24/7, but we love our role as Ann Arbor's premiere modern fabric store and look forward to many more years of continued success!
