Hello! Welcome to Lark Cottons, a family-owned online fabric store located in Portland, Oregon.
I'm Heather, shop owner and wearer of many hats — from selecting fabric, to cutting and packaging, and even book-keeping — I do it all!
I have a background in architectural design and a love of all things crafty. Hailing from a family of quilters and makers, I have many fond memories of handmade quilts, afghans, clothing, toys, and even 70s retro-style Barbie outfits! Although I learned to sew when I was young (including some questionable attempts at garment sewing), it didn't really "stick" until I was well into adult-hood.
Looking to fit a little more color into my world of black-and-white drawings, I realized sewing and quilting in particular, was a natural match to my interest in composition, pattern, and detail.
From there, Lark Cottons grew out of a passion for design and creating. What began as an off-shoot to a hand-made stitched goods venture in early 2010, has steadily evolved to where we are today, as I discovered being surrounded by beautiful fabrics — and sharing them with others — makes me very happy.
I strive to provide a well-rounded selection of high quality quilting fabrics with a fresh modern aesthetic — personally choosing fabrics and patterns that I love, and hope you'll love too!
