As a past Ambassador for Art Gallery Fabrics and now a fabric designer for Art Gallery Fabrics, I have gotten to see just how amazing this company is. I have always loved Art Gallery Fabrics designs and fabrics and have wanted to team up with them. The people at Art Gallery Fabrics are sincere, thoughtful, giving people who seek to inspire! On a recent business retreat, I wanted to bring some of my past alumni behind the scenes at Art Gallery Fabrics. Why? In an effort to help further their opportunities, see behind the scenes and get some of their questions answered. In this episode, co-owners Pat and Walter Bravo, are interviewed and they share more about Art Gallery Fabrics. Join in our conversation and find out for yourself just what Art Gallery Fabric represents and how they have become so successful. My alumni ask some really great questions and you won’t want to miss Pat and Walter’s responses and advice!

Mary of Mary Go Round Quilts asked:

We sure felt the spirit of Art Gallery Fabrics as we toured their warehouse and office. I hope that as you listen, you will gain insight, learn from their experience and advice and they respond to these questions and share the behind the scene of their business.
