I always wanted to own a fabric store. I thought that owning a fabric store would give me more time to sew my own projects, turns out I still have to make time to sew! I started sewing when I was 8 years old. It wasn’t until my mom was in the hospital that I got to use the sewing machine, dad didn’t know I wasn’t suppose to use it ! And ever since then my mom let me use the machine.

I started sewing when I was in 6th grade. I enjoy making home decor & crafts, and quilting. I am a mother of three so I stay behind the scenes. I stop in often to check on the latest fabrics and refill my products, Raw honey, beeswax, and beeswax products made by me! You can check out my products at: www.sweetbecreations.com
Heather: Floor Manager / Sales Associate
I am in charge of running the facebook page and making sure our store stays clean & fresh with new ideas!
I was born in the Republic of Congo, Africa. My parents were missionaries so I spent my growing up years there or in various mid-Western states. Almost 33 years ago I married Marlin farm boy turned CPA, Cleon Claassen. We have two grown children and two grandchildren. Although I was educated as a nurse, I have spent most of my adult years raising children and playing with fabric. I am an American Quilter’s Society Certified Appraiser of Quilted Textiles. I have taken courses on valuing quilts and quilt history. I love working at Country Fabrics because I can play with fabric without having to own it all!

As most already know this was a tough year we lost Vo to cancer She was a great inspiration to us all, we can still hear her telling us things over and over “Everything has a place and a place for everything” OK it was really meant for me. Everyday we find something that reminds us of her, its coming into soup season and she made some wonderful soups. Vo you will be missed but not ever forgotten we love you !!
