Owner, Sandra Austin
I started By The Yard
as a business in my home, with just 3 racks of fabric. As business grew it consumed more and more space. Then, when it started to overflow in front of the TV, my husband's solution was to move all my fabric to the garage. After 5 years of being in the garage, he thought it'd be nice to actually use the garage once again to park our cars in. So at that point, he and my son-in-law, over the course of the next 2 years, worked to build my dream. In August of 2013, By The Yard
got a new home just across the street from where it all began. By The Yard
has been in business since 2007.
