About Us

Our History

Leslie and Kelly have worked together in retail for over 30 years. Ten 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 natural chemistry with years of experience and a shared passion for interior design, Design Resource & Fabrics was born.

Kelly Goodbar

Owner

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.

Favorite wine: Chardonnay

Leslie Bertsch

Owner

Originally from Louisiana, Leslie has worked in the retail industry for over 30 years at 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

Judi Kovac

Associate

Born and raised in Colorado,  she was exposed at an early age to the business by her father who was an upholsterer in the Denver area. Judi attended CSU and earned her BS in Textiles and Interior Design.
Judi worked in retail for many years before transitioning to wholesale. She managed a wholesale fabric and window covering showroom at the Denver Design District for over 19 years.
After the showroom closed she was asked to join the team at Design Resource and Fabrics in May 2020.
Bring her any window covering projects and she will guide you to the best solutions. During her downtime she loves to cook and spend time with her dog, Molly.
