This afternoon, we welcome The West Seattle Fabric Company in the Admiral District as a new WSB sponsor. As per WSB tradition, new sponsors get to share information about what they do: The West Seattle Fabric Company is a shop with a fresh approach to sewing. We see ourselves as a creative sewing center where people of all skill levels and interests can find inspiration for any project. We carry cheerful, vibrant fabrics that are sometimes hard to find. Because we are a fabric boutique, we are constantly bringing in new fabrics, so there is always a reason to pop in and see us. Since opening the store 6 months ago, we have already expanded our space and significantly increased our inventory to better serve our community. We’ve created classes that help teach pattern reading, sewing projects, and we’ve just launched our first quilting series for beginners. Looking to the future, we want to bring in rotating craft supplies and projects for all ages and offer children’s sewing parties that would be perfect for birthday celebrations.
The West Seattle Fabric Company‘s Monica and Greg Skov were both raised in Spokane, but met in West Seattle where they now live with their daughter Olivia. In addition to being part of the community as business owners, they have become actively involved in melanoma and skin-cancer awareness. Greg and his twin brother Chris coordinate the annual Steve Casey Memorial Golf Tournament every August to raise money for melanoma awareness and research. In the future, Greg and Monica hope to establish the program “Casey’s Quilts,” which would donate quilts to people fighting melanoma in the Seattle area.
