Hello and welcome! We are Patrick and Andrea. A (photographer) husband and (fabric-loving) wife team from the beautiful Central Coast of California. We own and operate this very fabric web-shop called Cottoneer Fabrics. An online store with a love for natural-fiber fabrics, and a big fat dislike for shopping for it online.
We are a very small company, (just the two of us!), with some big ideas up our sleeve. As avid online shoppers ourselves we realized one thing very quickly. We HATE shopping online for fabric. Purchasing fabrics from a small square graphic is hardly helpful when you’ve got a new baby quilt to plan. Shopping online does not compare to walking through the fabric store and touching all of the wonderful fabrics with your own two hands. So with that problem to fix, we set a goal for ourselves:
At Cottoneer, we promise to photograph EVERY SINGLE piece of fabric that passes through our hands. And we don’t just photograph it once, we photograph it several times. We post all of these images to our website and instagram so our shoppers can be as close to feeling the fabric, but with the bonus convenience of shopping online… in pajamas of course.
We hope you’ll have a browse around our website, or our Instagram, and tell us what you think! We want to serve a purpose in the world of crafting and sewing, and that purpose is to help people understand what they are buying so they can feel confident in the online purchases they make.
Please let us know if you have any questions at all. We sincerely cannot wait to help you!
Andrea & Patrick
