Hannah Johnson Fabrics will soon be celebrating five years in business! One of my goals has been to open an online fabric store and after many, many attempts to get an online fabric store up and running, it’s finally happened. I have to thank the team at Art Unlimited in Angora, MN who got me going and more importantly, kept me going and worked with me to the finish line. They created a web site that feels like you are walking into Hannah Johnson Fabrics! There’s energy and excitement and now it’s my job to keep it going and to use the tools they gave me.
Your first stop will always be the photo Gallery that’s lifted right from my facebook page so there’s always a stream of pictures of happy and creative children, women and men sharing their beautiful quilts, clothing and projects that inspire everyone who sees them. It’s the best part of my day when someone brings in something they made using the fabric they bought at Hannah Johnson Fabrics. They are so proud and I am always amazed at how everyone sees a piece of fabric in a different way.
Check out the Calendar where you can find out our class schedule, and upcoming events (including the new Lake Superior Modern Quilt Guild)! In About Us there’s also a story about my grandma, Hannah Marie Swedberg Johnson and how she inspired me to sew!! When I opened the store and was trying to come up with a name that would be memorable to customers I didn’t realize the impact that naming the store after my grandmother would have with so many people. When people ask if I am Hannah Johnson and I tell them the story of my grandma, it brings back special memories to that person and they totally understand the love grandchildren have for their grandmothers. It’s surprising to find out how many people sew because of their grandmas! It’s such a privilege to hear them all!
And, of course, there’s a Map and a Contact Us form. Chances are it will be me who answers you and I take each question the time it takes to get the best answer. If you’re from out of the area, a drive to Northern Minnesota and Lake Superior will be a chance to see natural beauty at it’s best. We’d love to have you stop by and say hello! Besides the brick and mortar store where you can Shop, we have an online store where you can shop to your heart’s content. We want to make sure we have the fabrics you love every time you shop! If you are looking for something you can’t find somewhere else, give us a call, we might have it in our inventory. I hope you enjoy our web site and because it was created so brilliantly by the Art Unlimited team and each time you drop in you will find something new!
And remember, if you can’t make it into the store, please shop in our online fabric store!! Have fun!
