sell only organic and sustainably-sourced cotton and hemp fabric
because a healthy planet and happy people are important to us.
HoneyBeGood is a family-run business operated out of the old Cotton Warehouse at the renovated Porterdale Mill in Georgia. We enjoy a (relatively) slow relaxed Southern lifestyle and regular reminders of the days when cotton was king of the South.
Our staff consists of Karen Daniel whose background in Art History and Commercial Design lends itself well to the establishment of an online only shop, and Melissa Daniel, a sophomore at Georgia State University who spends much of her spare time cutting fabric, fulfilling orders, and maintaining the site's inventory. Our occasional Drone b is husband/daddy Edward who without nary a complaint does the heavy lifting and product photography.
Karen is a long-time quilter with a passion for returning the art of quilting to a simpler, purer form, away from the harmful effects of conventional cotton to human and environment alike; away from the frenzy for mass-produced fabric that simply isn't sustainable.
We know there are no easy answers to the complexities of sustainability. The best any of us can do is try to make informed choices and pledge to do the least amount of harm possible. Take a look at the conventional cotton process used in many quilting fabrics and you'll see a long list of harmful practices. Getting the price to the quilter down as low as they do is extremely costly to farmers and the environment.
Quilters, traditional or modern, young or old, all have a common trait - they're all nice people. We've yet to meet a quilter we didn't like! What better way to show your passion for the fine art of quilting and sewing than to support the people and the earth producing the fabric we love so much. You put a lot of care into your work. You deserve to start with pure and healthy fabric.
We've opened HoneyBeGood with the ultimate goal of making it a one-stop-shop for organic and sustainable goods for quilters, textile artists, and stitchers of all varieties. We're starting small and have quite a journey ahead of us, that's for sure. It's one we're excited about taking and hope you'll come back often to see our progress.
Thanks for visiting!
