About Us

Pictue of Julie

Hi Sweet Stitch Friends,

I am Julie, the owner of The Intrepid Thread. This shop is my labor of love and my gift to you. 

I started out in e-commerce in 1998 and opened the online fabric shop in 2011 quickly outgrowing my house then moved into a brick and mortar in 2012. Family and life changes brought me back online in 2018. Now a big move to Texas has us in the public space again. Keep an eye out for our Grand Opening in July 2024 in New Braunfels!

With 51 years of sewing experience and 32 years of quilting experience I am dedicated to helping new quilters to make beautiful quilts even if they have never used a sewing machine before. Let me be your guide to the wonderful world of happy stitching!
