When we were growing up, our Mom sewed everything. Barbie clothes, doll clothes, clothes for us, clothes for her, bed spreads, curtains, drapes, slipcovers, etc, etc, etc. She had many other hobbies but got seriously involved with quilting in her mid 50's. Our Great Great Aunt Val sewed too. We have two of her finished quilts plus all of the pieces she cut out for a Wedding Ring quilt she started in the early 1940's - you can see all three of these in the shop.
At first we weren't interested in the quilts, especially the traditional patterns and fabrics, but we were in love with the newer fabrics (and this was in the mid 90's when fabric wasn't nearly as great as it is now). So we started by just collecting fabrics. :) Then we actually made a quilt or two and we started liking the traditional patterns using the newer cute fabrics. Our tastes grew and evolved, and now we love all sorts of quilts and fabric styles!
We had talked about opening a fabric store with Mom but it never made it past the talking stage. Mom is only with us in our hearts and spirit now but it is our mutual love of fabrics and quilts that inspired Mesquite Bean Fabrics. We opened our doors in June of 2015 in a small little shopping center with limited parking.
We outgrew that space and moved into a bigger location with a larger parking lot in July of 2021, where we now call home!
We work hard to be your favorite fabric shop - in person and online - by offering great fabrics and the best service possible.
