About me

Location Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States
Introduction Melanie is an energetic fabric-aficionado who has turned her focus to organic materials. As she stocks her shop she is searching out bright prints, colors and great design in organic quilting cottons, knits and more. She is also on the lookout for the best patterns and tutorials for utilizing these fabulous fabrics. Melanie is the mother to three young girls who works from her home in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. Before opening Modern Organic Fabrics she was the voice behind The Fabric Shopper blog. She has worked in a variety of industries, including travel and restaurants. She holds a degree in Marketing Communications and a degree in History and Spanish. She has had an interest in living in an Earth-friendly manner since college, when she wrote a paper about garbage dumps (yikes!) She is also a big believer in "doing the best you can".
