Profile Last Updated: February 13, 2009
Fabricland is a one-stop fabric-shopping destination that has everything from fancy tulle, satin, and organza to basic broadcloth, flannel, and arctic fleece. The large, subterranean space also stocks a full selection of notions, from thread and zippers to trims and fasteners. There are entire walls devoted to buttons, so if you’ve busted or lost one, chances are you’ll find a match (or a close enough mate) here.
Experts and Beginners Welcome
Fabricland is great for accomplished seamstresses or those looking to make their very first throw pillow. The store has a huge selection of patterns, from complicated designer options to easy-to-sew basics. Staff is also very helpful, and they usually have a sample project on display. Fabric is divided into little departments within the space, including fashion, craft, and upholstery. There’s also a good selection of items to help you complete a project, like drapery hardware and those that let you take the easy-way out, like ready-made pillow covers and drapery panels.
Discounts Abound in the Back
One of the best spots in the store is at the very back, where you’ll find big tables of discount bolts set up. There’s often brightly coloured fleece here, which you can use for anything from Halloween costumes to a quick, no-sew lap blanket. Off-season bolts ultimately find their way here too, so if you’ve fallen behind on your holiday-themed sewing, you can pick up some materials on the cheap and be ready for the following year.
