Yippee Skippee!!!!!! Julie has put so much work into converting her amazing etsy shop into a full blown Webpage and Online Shop!!!!!    And check out how cool it looks!!!!


It is super easy to navigate.  Just click on Shop and you are taken to the new shopfront where everything is neatly divided by Collection, Designer, Manufacturer, ect. ect. ect.  Perfect for whatever way you like to shop for fabric.  And of course every picture is Julie's top level of photography which allows you to really get an idea for the actual color of the lines ;)  I love that about Julie's store!!!
