When Fabrics by Dyllis closed last year I was pretty sad. You know, it is a very traumatic event for fashion sewers when a reliable resource goes out of business! Tragic I say! It was this cute little shop that had amazing fabrics!
Well, about two months ago a friend of mine told me about some women in town, who just by coincidence were also saddened about the closing, were going to start a fabrics-on-line business. But for the life of me I couldn’t get the name and had somehow forgotten it!
So in the last month I thought I’d try to check up on the tip and try and locate their business. I mean, how hard can it be right? I tried and tried to find them by googling…(this is a lesson to anyone that starts a business…please follow along and pay attention how not to get your site found as I’m sure there is a much better way…like a blog and a few good meta tags) and had absolutely no success.
First I tried ‘fabric shop illinois’ — nothing
Then I tried ‘ fabric palatine’ — nothing
Then I tried ‘fabrics wholesale’ — nothing
‘fashion fabrics’, ‘fabric’, ‘cloth’, ‘fashion’….NOTHING!!!!
I tried about a hundred different combinations until I finally thought of asking my friend for their web address. NO, NO, NO! I thought…I’m not going to cheat. I’m really going to find this business on-line.
Then I said you know what…? If I’m having trouble finding them on the web then I wondered if they were even open or for that matter wondered if others were able to find them. I really did wonder.
I kind of went out on a tangent then and googled one of the owners’ name. I guess that could be cheating for sure but it worked as the 4th hit down brought me to a news article and lo and behold in the news article they mention the name. Which brings me to…
I just checked back again today and it looks like they’ve updated quite a bit. I wish them luck in their business adventure and now that I’ve found them I hope you’ll enjoy the new link as well!
