Fabricate originated from a love of textiles and all things handmade. It is a place of craft inspiration and education in lovely downtown Boulder, Colorado, and was founded in 2011 by fabric aficionado, Linda Spillmann. At Fabricate we aim to inspire people to learn to sew, quilt, embroider, felt, mend, upholster, up-cycle, in a word: create. We set ourselves apart with our offering of carefully sourced designer knit, quilt-weight, and home décor fabrics. We also supply unique sewing patterns, books, and notions, as well as embroidery, felting and hand-sewing kits, which are all chosen with the purpose of inspiring people to create.
Our cozy, light-filled studio, just east of the Pearl Street Mall, has an assortment of craft tools for use, including sewing machines, sergers, cutting mats, rotary cutters, irons, threads, books, and more. Our talented and experienced team of instructors offer a wide range of adult classes, as well as private and semi-private sewing lessons, and kids classes and camps. The sewing machines in our studio are provided courtesy of Blakeman Vacuum & Sewing of Boulder, who we’ve partnered with to bring you the highest quality sewing machines from the best manufacturers in the industry.
We invite you to visit us and ask our friendly staff any questions you may have, or for any assistance you may need. We hope our offering of beautiful fabric, craft supplies and kits, and hand-made items from local artists, kindles your curiosity and motivation. We love “show-and-tell” and chatting with other crafty-minded souls and we are thrilled to play a part in the growing do-it-yourself movement.
