Meet the Design Resource & Fabrics Team

Our History

Leslie and Kelly have worked together in retail for over 25 years. Four years ago, they were working at a fabric store that was on the brink of closing. They’d become friends with an Interior Designer who was one of their regular clients. One day, while they were discussing the store closing, they had a brilliant idea. Why not join forces and open up their own store? Fusing a natural chemistry with years of experience and a shared passion for interior design, Design Resource & Fabrics was born.

Leslie Bertsch

Originally from Louisiana, Leslie has worked in the retail industry for over 30 years at places including fabric stores, a model home company, and the Denver Design Center. Her experience and way with customers shine through with every interaction. Take her your design problems, and she’ll find a solution! Better yet, visit her often, become a friend, and get invited to her house for dinner — she’s also an excellent cook.

Favorite wine: Chardonnay

Kelly Goodbar

A self-proclaimed semi-native, Kelly grew up in Iowa but moved to Colorado when she was only 19. She has worked in retail her entire life, beginning in the 80s with the wallpaper business and gradually transitioning to fabrics. Kelly seldom stops moving and is always quick to help! Her shorthaired pointer keeps her moving at home as well, where she loves to take Scout for long walks.
