The Big List of Online Canadian Fabric, Pattern and Notion Stores

The Big List of Online Canadian Fabric Shops

Finding Canadian companies that sell fabric online can be tough.

True, you can always shop at one of the US online shops, but it’s just not as easy. Some don’t ship to Canada. Sometimes the shipping prices are outrageous. Even when the shop sends out the fabric the same day, it can be stalled at customs for ages. Then there is the exchange rate to contend with.

I’m much happier supporting a Canadian business, knowing that my order will arrive quickly, and knowing exactly how much it will cost me.

Here is a list of Canadian companies that sell quilting or apparel fabric, patterns, and notions. I haven’t tried them all, so I can’t vouch for them. If you know of any others, or have had a good experience with any, please leave a comment or get in touch.

Capes. Yea or Nay?

BurdaStyle has just published a collection of 11 patterns in a style they call “Fifties Revival”. There are two cute suits, some dresses and a trench coat. And then a cape.

BurdaStyle Checked Cape sewing pattern 08/2011 #112

I especially like the concealed buttons. And I love the length. It’s long enough to keep you warm, but not so long that you can’t wear it with casual clothes like jeans. I even like the fabric choice. It looks like wool bouclé, which always seems to end up in Chanel jackets and nothing else. Overall, I think this looks like a really great pattern.

But I’m hesitant. Do I need a cape? I haven’t seen many around. Of course here in Montreal it is currently far to cold to wear capes. Maybe they will start popping up in spring? Maybe I should stick with a coat?

I was also incredible inspired by Renee of Miss Celie’s Pants and her beautiful purple cape, which you can see on her website. She used the Vogue 8776 cape pattern.

What do you think? Capes. Yea or nay?
