New Fabric Store to Open on South Hill

Fabric and gift store will be a “Quilter’s Quilt Shop”.

Irene Fransk, owner, is pleased to announce the opening of Regal Fabrics and Gifts, LLC a new retail fabric and gift store on S. Regal St. on the South Hill of Spokane.  The grand opening is set for August 15th and 16th.  The store will have high quality quilt fabrics and notions, custom sewing products, and offer a variety of quilt and sewing workshops.  The business is located at 5620 South Regal Street,  #8, Spokane. 

Fransk has been an avid quilter and seamstress for over 40 years and has operated an online custom sewing business for the past seven years.  Opening a retail store grew out of her love for quilting, finding high quality quilting fabric and filling a need for the quilt and sewing community on the South Hill and area south west of Spokane.  

In addition, she grew tired of driving 30-40 minutes from the South Hill when she needed quality products or supplies. “There is a growing trend of younger people that are learning to sew and quilt, and design their own clothing and home décor, commented Irene.  “We will be offering classes for all levels of quilting, purse construction, home décor, exercise wear, and children’s apparel, as well as some fun sessions pairing wine with basic sewing techniques”. 

The store will also feature hand crafted gifts and collectibles from local artisans.  The store will employ 5-7 part-time employees, all passionate about sewing. 

Regal Fabrics and Gifts will be open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and closed Sundays.  

Wine and sew nights will be held Thursday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  One Thursday a month will be coffee, tea, and dessert night.

Congratulations Irene!
