​Get to Know Us: Laura

Welcome back fabric lovers! We hope you made it safely through the snowpocalypse, and maybe even finished a project or 2 if you were lucky enough to skip work.

Personally I ran out of tinned soup and will avenge the snow when I figure out how.

Back here we’ve been up to our ears with trying to decide which spring fabric is our favourite, and will definitely need your help this Sunday in Instagram Stories. Stay vigilant!

For Part 2 of our internet coffee date, we’re introducing Laura a.k.a. best hair in the business. Stick the kettle on, grab a biscuit and relax with this quick interview!

1. What do you do at Fabric Yard?

On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays I cut, pack, and ship orders at Fabric Yard. I also sometimes do a bit of Instagrammin and take pictures of new arrivals. I occasionally respond to emails if it's an easy request. When Alice is on holidays I also feed the rabbit and the fish.


2. What are the first 3 traits people notice about you?

I swear quite a bit... I am working on it but not very successfully. I have a laugh often described as a witches cackle. People also like to comment positively on my hair occasionally which is nice (as a side note: Alice only hires gingers).


3. What is your favourite fabric?

This is easy! I've got two. TODO PARA TI in turquoise by Alexander Henry and COOL GIRLS ROSE NEON by Rico. I'm always a bit sad when I cut them because I want to keep them all for myself.


4. What’s the best thing you’ve ever sewn?

I am a horrific sewer with too much confidence for my skill level. I aim every year to get better but really should go to some classes. However, I did an apron for my Mother in Law which I was quite proud of at the time. I also made a pair of curtains which are my pride and joy (just dont look too closely at the lining ).


5. What’s your favourite thing about fabric yard?

Alice and her kids . They make me proper witches cackle laugh frequently. Also I occasionally get free fabric yaaaassssss!

Woohoo! Two down, one to go before you meet our whole crew. We hope you enjoyed that, and make sure you tell us which biscuits you had.

Until next time!
