Welcome to charming juno

We are really delighted that you took the time to stop on by.

We are friends who love exploring new ways of being creative and learning new crafts.

At Charming Juno we adore beautiful fabrics and haberdashery, and are excited to share these with you through our home-based business. We believe craft and creativity are for all ages, stages and abilities.

We would like to make Charming Juno a great place to buy fabric online.

Take care and see you soon.

Carol and Jenny
