It was 3 years ago today that Fabric Yard began. In one sense it has gone so quickly and in another, its hard to remember life pre-fabricyard.



I have to say that I have loved every minute of those 3 years. It has been a juggling act, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

In between fulfilling orders and running to the post office has been school drop offs and pick ups. My girls are all on first name terms with the lovely people at our local post office. Getting my head around marketing and putting accounts into order has been interspersed with dinner times and bed times. I've had lovely lovely customers, I've been able to combine motherhood with growing a business. I've even been able to fit in a new baby around the business and for this I am very grateful.

I feel lucky to have had this opportunity. I feel relieved that I don't have to explain to the boss why I've had to take a day off work because one of the kids are sick. Its a blessing to be able to pack the kids and the beach stuff into the car on that one day of the year that the sun shines here in Portstewart. And yet, even on days when things have been really hectic, I have such great support from my family and friends, especially Trish - that I can only count the one occasion in those 3 years that I didn't make it to the post office to post thats days orders (the planets were misaligned, the Gods conspired against me and I forgot it was a bank holiday). I feel that its so important to have a professional, reliable approach and I hope that translates for my customers. I am so grateful for the support that fabricyard has had - I know that the next 3 years will bring even bigger challenges and probably, hopefully, some changes as we constantly evolve. I hope we can continue to service your needs and meet and exceed your expectations.
