I’m Jodie, owner of Fort Worth Fabric Studio! I learned to sew as a child with the help of my Grandma Teegarden. Once in high school, I became passionate about sewing garments. I started working in a fabric store at age 14 - I’ll never forget how proud I was to make $2.85 per hour, and how I swooned over all the newest textiles and sewing patterns!
After graduating from college with a B.S. in Business Administration, I continued sewing as often as possible. I spent a number of years designing & selling children's boutique clothing to a wonderful group of clientele before deciding to open my own online fabric store. I couldn't ask for a better job - combing my love for business/entrepreneurship with my love for color/textiles.
A bit about me: I married my high school sweetheart and we have 3 fabulous kids. My "fabric-ing" as my kids call it...usually happens at night while they are asleep. I enjoy making quilts, pillows, bags, clutches, and am going to try clothing next! I love seeing my children snuggled under a quilt or watching tv with one of the many pillows or my daughter bringing her little purse everywhere full of her treasures. Plus the more projects I sew- the more fabric I need :). I share my sewing adventures on Instagram as http://instagram.com/mellierc/
