I love the Canadian online fabric shopping scene! Over the past few years, it has grown by leaps and bounds, providing Canadian (and US and International!) shoppers with lots of variety and choice.
Today, I’m thrilled to be able to feature Lindsey from The Fabric Snob, chat about her shop and give you a chance to win a fabric-y giveaway! Plus, she’s provided a discount code for you to use in her shop. (P.S. This is the 20th Canadian Online Fabric Store interview we’ve had here!)
“It started with the search for the perfect diaper fabric for my newborn son, which was impossible to find in Canada. I realized there was a huge gap in the Canadian market for on-trend fabrics, so The Fabric Snob was born!
We also have a brick and mortar location. We are located in a small town, Riverton, in rural Manitoba! If you are ever out our way, please stop in for a visit, we would love to have you!” ~ Lindsey, The Fabric Snob
I had a lovely time shopping at The Fabric Snob. They have a huge shop including 60+ solid knit colours plus prints, french terry, and heathered knits, quilting cottons, fleece, minky, flannels, notions and thread! Plus a low Canada and US shipping flat rate of $9.99.
My order arrived super-quick with a washing sheet and bonus fruit snacks that, yes, I did share with my kids! Plus I got a swatch sheet for their huge array of knits – so I can properly match future orders. (Almost my favorite part of the order, besides the fabric of course! #fabricnerd)
Sherri: Why did you decide to start your shop?
Lindsey: I wanted something that I could do from home while being a mom, I LOVED sewing and was a self-professed fabric snob. Plus I have always loved working with technology. An online fabric store was the perfect fit!
Sherri: What is your favorite type of sewing project?
Lindsey: Clothing! I love being able to custom fit something to my body. But I also love the challenge of quilting projects!
Sherri: What is something coming up in the near future that you are especially excited about?
Lindsey: We are hoping to expand our apparel fabrics in a big way over the next few months, and we are also in the process of getting a long-arm to start offering edge-to-edge quilting services!
Sherri: Thanks, Lindsey!

Thanks for introducing the Fabric Snob! My favorite thing in their shop is the Blue Carolina line of fabrics.
40 Winks on white is an adorable print! I can think of several projects to use this fabric! I enjoyed this interview!
I like their quilt kit : FLORAL MENAGERIE BLOCK OF THE MONTH CLUB
Nice to see that our online shopping options are expanding.

I love all the preorders that they run. I’m currently waiting on a bunch of black and white stripes!!!

I’m seriously considering the riley blake airplane knits in blue and gray.
Thanks for the giveaway.
All the quilting cottons! I may quilt AND sew clothes, but knits are still scary to me. I would love to use the Architectural Blocks in Cement as a background on a quilt!
