About Us

Once Upon a Time a gallant young man and charming young lady met in the fabric department while working at Rollman’s in Cincinnati. Don and Maxine fell in love, were married and began a family. While Don worked the trades, Maxine, the accomplished seamstress, lovingly clothed 4 daughters. Layettes to bridal gowns were cherished by the daughters and passed down to their children, too!

While out antiquing at Peddlers Flea Market, Don came across a booth called Fabric Shack, complete with shake shingles. The man was selling rolls of shirting fabric. He said he would rather be home watching football and for $1000 he would sell it to Don. Don, who could never pass up a great deal or business venture, went home and got a check. A new chapter in their lives began! It quickly grew from 4 flea market locations and Maxine happily turned her sewing expertise to the area of quilting.

After 37 years of faithfully serving the quilting community my grandma and mom, Maxine and Jenny, have retired! I’m sure they will still be around to cut an order or 2 but now they get to enjoy their stashes. They wanted me to express how much they enjoyed meeting, learning a bit about each and every one of you and are thankful for all the friendships made. As much as you learned from them, they learned from all of you talented quilters that were always willing to share knowledge! As always, we know this is disappointing and that online shopping isn’t for everyone but we’re here to help!

You can call us Mon–Thur 10am–3pm Fri 10am-12pm at 877-666-4245 with any questions or help that you need. We’ll be here shipping all the most beautiful fabric as fast as can be! Thank you so much for your continued support! Fabric Shack Home Decor is open and not affected by this decision.
