Message from FreeSpirit website:
We are certain you have heard the news. Please forgive us for delayed communication, but our first priority has been to support our employees and designers.
It is with great sadness that we announce, effective May 1, we are exiting the Westminster Lifestyle/FreeSpirit fabric business.
Our sister company, Coats and Clark, Inc. will continue as part of the sewing and quilting landscape just as they have always been for over 200 years. We appreciate your support and love of our fabrics throughout the years.
We’ve enjoyed bringing to you the best designers printed on the most luxurious of fabrics and watching you create incredible works.
Thank you for your love of our fabrics.
For customers: We will continue to fulfil orders placed to date for delivery prior to Tuesday, May 1, with new orders for existing collections on a first come first service basis. We will not be producing new Westminster or FreeSpirit Fabrics from today onwards.
