Welcome! So happy you made it to our fabric store!

Fabric Bubb is a small family business run entirely by Kristina with occasional help from her family (husband and two kiddos) located in the Raleigh area of North Carolina. 

A Fabric Bubb History: In the summer of 2011 in South San Francisco, California, Fabric Bubb was started as a side business to Kristina's baby goods business. Unexpectedly fabric started selling quickly and soon Kristina found that she had two businesses to keep up with along with raising a toddler. Knowing that both businesses couldn't be maintained in the fashion in which she wanted to run them, a choice had to be made and she decided to switch over to selling fabric only. Fabric Bubb then moved to San Jose, California for a few years before moving to Seattle, Washington. In the 7 years that Fabric Bubb was in the Seattle area it outgrew the home studio and moved into a commercial space. Then due to a job change, Fabric Bubb moved to North Carolina in the summer of 2021. Thinking back to when she first started with maybe 15 bolts to over 2000+ bolts now, it has been an incredible and unexpected journey. Kristina only chooses fabrics for the store that she would use herself and is very selective in what goes on the shelves and hopes that her customers love the curated selection that is offered. Her favorite thing about the fabric shop is creating the custom Fabric Bubb bundles.

Some fun facts:

+ We needed a shop name really quick to open our store, and named it after our oldest who we call 'The Bubb' and it just stuck. Plus he loves that its named after him. 
+ Kristina gets asked all the time if she has a textile design degree and if that is how she got started. Nope, she has a Bachelor of Science in Genetics and Plant Biology from UC Berkeley.
+ We have moved the store 4 times and been in three different states. Hopefully our move to North Carolina will stick for a while. We miss Seattle and seeing all your lovely faces!
+ We've been to 6 of 7 continents and love to travel.
+ We can eat an entire jumbo bag of peanut M&Ms in one sitting.
+ We now use KONA colors to describe all the things in everyday life. What color shirt were they wearing? It was Wasabi. What color chair should we get? I like the Storm one.
+ Kristina is obsessed with basics and fully believes all projects can be made with just them.
+ Taking pictures of fabric is probably one of her favorite parts of owning a fabric store aside from creating the bundles.

Our goal at Fabric Bubb is to offer you the best selection and super fast shipping. We love our customers and would like to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting our family business and making it possible for Kristina to make this into a career.
