Cat Hickmon

Fabrication Specialist

Cat has been with B2End since (almost!) the very beginning! Having owned her own fabrication business for over 20 years, B2End is so grateful to have her expertise in the showroom. In addition to being a skilled veteran in all things fabric, Cat is also extremely artistic and brings a well-trained eye to her work. Her favorite part about working at B2End is: “I still have fun making and designing things, without all the intricacies of owning my own business!”
