After my long weekend in northern California, I flew south to meet up with my gal pals Leslie Jenison and Jamie Fingal to hang out for a day and tour Hoffman Fabrics before heading to Long Beach for festival.

The surf culture influence was all around from bolts of Hawaiian print fabric to the warehouse walls lined with surf boards.

In the evening Jamie made us a fabulous dinner, then we soaked in the jacuzzi with glasses of wine and lots of laughs.

    I have not heard of Hoffman fabrics in years. They do not call on shops in small towns and my local store Creations, Kerrville, TX does not attend the show in Houston. they were always fun fabric.

    Can you buy stuff there?

  5. Hi Connie, Hoffman donated fabrics for me to use in my Make it University workshop, which was a huge help! Their fabrics are gorgeous!

    Hi Anne,
    It’s strictly a warehouse/offices where the fabric comes in from production and gets put on bolts and shipped out to stores.

I love hearing from my blog visitors
