Renee Sherrer - Owner, Designer, Instructor
I've been working with textiles, specifically sewing, since I was about 8 years old. It just seemed natural to get my MFA in Textiles when I went to graduate school. I've taught a variety of subjects from Sculpture to Dyeing, Fashion Design and Sewing at West Texas State University, U of North Texas, Eastern MT College, Whatcom Community College, Skagit Valley College, Ragfinery and The Foundry. NOTHING holds my interest like textiles, the engineering of a garment or a sculpture, the surface embellishment or just the texture and weave of a beautiful fabric. I wanted to create Social Fabric to expose people to the myriad of textile and sewing arts which are so under exhibited in a smaller community like Bellingham.

Francine Kirton - Sales Associate, General all-around wonder woman.
Francine is truly amazing. She has an eye for color, style, arrangement. She can put together a “look” that will knock your socks off, yet she never puts you out of your comfort zone (style wise). THAT takes a lot of skill and sensitivity. Francine is one of those amazing people who recognizes a task that needs doing - and just does it. We are SO lucky to have Francine on staff.
