welcome To The One Thimble Blog
Today we’re starting a new blog feature – Business Spotlight! I want to introduce you to some of the wonderful businesses who I shop with and who support One Thimble. The first business up is Fabric Fox.
I brought the fabrics for my Mum and my neighbours Christmas gifts from Jacqui and used the Fold Over Clutch pattern by Little Moo Designs to make these.
I’m so pleased with how they turned out and it was such a pleasure to shop with Fabric Fox. So without further ado – let’s have a chat with the lady behind Fabric Fox – Jacqui.
Tell me a little about your business – when did you start? What prompted you to go into business?
Fabric Fox is an online Designer Fabric Store, we stock gorgeous quality designer fabrics from around the world, including wovens, knits and spandex. The Fabric Fox website was launched in August 2014 after my husband put the idea in my head. I’d always wanted to have my own little business for years but wasn’t sure what to do, I loved sewing and had a ‘little bit’ of a fabric addiction and my husbands said ‘why don’t you just give it a go’ so…l did. We haven’t looked back, its great being able to work from home and still have time to do all the Mummy things with the kids.
What can people expect from Fabric Fox?
Excellent customer service and quality designer fabric at an affordable price.
I also aim to process & dispatched all orders promptly, most orders are posted the same day, if received before 12pm (that day), if not they are sent the following day. Getting your fabric in your hot little hands as soon as possible 🙂
Tell me what you look for in the fabrics you stock?
So far l have been ordering fabrics that l would like to sew with and current trending fabrics. I also love getting request for particular fabrics and trying to get them in, so if you are after something in particular contact me and l’ll see what l can do.
What coming ranges are you excited to stock?

Do you craft/sew?
Yes l love to sew and would love to have more time for it. I am self taught and brought my first sewing machine after my son (now 5) was born to make him some cot sheets. It wasn’t until l has Miss 3 that l fell in love with sewing children’s clothes and my other little hobby business was created, Fox n Fillies. I used to sell the children’s clothes at local markets, its something l’d love to get back into some day soon!!
What’s something people might not know about you?
Oh l have a few things the first most exciting thing…we have baby no. 3 on the way, due in July!! I can’t wait to start sewing some baby clothes & blankets soon. Secondly before starting a family l was a Exercise Physiologist/Personal Trainer, so l guess you could say l have had a career change! I still love keeping fit & eating healthy but l’m really enjoying my new adventure, having my own little business, Fabric Fox.
