With 24 years of experience in arts and crafts, Ms. Swanson is known by her peers for her expertise in fiber arts and business management. On a daily basis, she is tasked with overseeing the day-to-day operations of the business, ordering and purchasing, designing patterns for people, teaching within the facility, strategic planning and business development, and giving team guidance to her 10 employees. Fabric Art Shop is an art and design education and retail company that provides specialty art and quilting products. The shop also features classes in art and pattern design. Ms. Swanson is proud to announce that the shop is having a grand reopening in a larger facility from May 30th through June 1st 2013. Ms. Swanson attributes her success to having a good idea of what the customers want and to providing superior customer service.
