Sandy Wilson has 28 years of experience with fabrics and taught herself to sew at an early age. “I work with the design studio and workroom services, measuring, designing, creating, and installing – basically from concept to end-result.”   She also specializes in designing high-end pillows. Sandy says individual clients comprise 95% of the business with the remainder being commercial. She shared that 1502 Fabrics has an array of fabric selections and samples available to order. “We allow at least two weeks for custom fabrics to be ordered.”   Clients are seen by appointment and Sandy enjoys making their vision a reality by incorporating special touches that make a home.

Lisa Gruwell has been with 1502 Fabrics for a number of years. Her role is in design and sales. She sets up the in-store displays to help clients visualize what can be designed for them. Picking an inspirational fabric and layering other textures, patterns and colors is something Lisa enjoys. Along with Sandy, she is an essential part of the design studio. “The average project turnaround is about four weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the project.”

Jean Ward has been with 1502 Fabrics for fifteen years with her focus on sales and customer support. “We have many loyal repeat customers who also refer their friends to us.”

Ashley McHenry began working part-time at 1502 Fabrics while finishing design school. She has been with the firm for almost four years. Ashley’s degrees are in business, and interior design and she shared that she “has never-ending inspirations to help bring a vision to life.” She is also the social media coordinator for the business. Ashley creates hand painted accent pieces displayed throughout the showroom.

Missy Smith is one of the newer team members. Involved primarily in sales, Missy shared that “having a love of fabrics and a creative, artistic eye makes me love my work at 1502.”

Heather Krafft also works in sales. She keeps an eye on the incoming fabrics and lets her customers know when something arrives that they will be interested in checking out. Heather has an interior design degree and is a crafter by hobby, finding unique ways to repurpose fabric. She says the showroom is different every day.

The 1502 Fabrics team of professionals work together for the benefit of their clients. They love fabrics and all the ways that the textures and colors of fabric selections can make a room special and inviting.

New fabrics arrive daily at 1502. Fabrics are arranged by color and price point for ease of selection. Many fabrics are stain resistant and washable. Remnants, ideal for smaller projects, are also available in the showroom. Displays are positioned throughout the showroom to give clients ideas on ways to design and enhance their space. Seeing room models along with the fabrics can allow new ideas to surface.
