Urban Sew is a family-run online fabric retail business – specializing in contemporary cottons, fabric imported from Japan and patterns ideal for children’s clothes. Janice Harris is the founder and visionary of this business. Janice has enjoyed sewing for many years and she brings this experience to the retail side of the business. Janice’s husband, Greg Harris, is responsible for the website, including site updates and inventory control. Greg has many years of experience as a writer and editor in addition to contributing to Urban-Sew.com. Janice and Greg’s 10 year old daughter Julia models fashions that have been sewn by Janice, using fabric that we have available for sale. Julia’s modeling career has spanned years as you can track her growth via the photos on this site.

The business began in 2012 as The Fabric Stash, with new products arriving regularly. You can subscribe to our newsletter to receive emailed updates on new arrivals and sales. We hope you enjoy the site.
