The Fabricsmith | Spartanburg SC

About Us

The Fabricsmith, LLC is owned and operated by Karen Ballard, a resident of Greenville and Spartanburg since 1971. Karen's joy of sewing all started in the 6th grade home ec. class when she won the "Thread the sewing machine the fastest" competition.


The Fabricsmith is a custom workroom for home interiors with work in the upstate and Lowcountry of SC. From fine details in window treatments to comfortable bedding, shower curtains, and even upholstered walls. The Fabricsmith motto is "Think Outside the Box."


The workroom team has over 30 years combined sewing experience.


The personal service offered includes measuring and installation. In addition, all of your needs for pillow inserts, linings, embellishments, drapery hardware, blinds and woven or roller shades can be provided.

Karen and the team work closely with designers or the individual to make the design dream come true. See adjacent links for two design teams.
