I’m happy to be able to feature another Canadian Online Fabric Store interview today! Meet Melissa, owner of Funky Monkey Fabrics. Today she’s offering you a discount and a bundle giveaway from her shop! Funky Monkey Fabrics is based out of Ontario, Canada and they ship worldwide. (The giveaway is open internationally as well!)
“I started my sewing and embroidery business, Custom Creations, in 2009 while on Maternity leave with my first baby. After a few years of driving to the USA for fabric I opened up my fabric shop in 2013. I started with about 10 bolts of fabric and now have over 2000 products available in my store! It’s been a lot of hard work, but I have the most amazing customers and I get to cut beautiful fabric every day… It doesn’t get much better than this!” ~ Melissa, Funky Monkey Fabrics
I’ve been to Melissa’s shop a few times, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized just how much stock she has. And so varied! Take a look at all the notions she carries… everything you need to make your project – all in one place. Plus, I know a lot of you have kids that love licensed fabrics – she’s got cotton Minions and Disney knits! So good!
Just to show how varied her stock is – here are a few of my favorites. I had a hard time choosing only 6! I guess you’ll have to go and peruse the rest on her website… or, if you’d prefer and live near Varna, Ontario – book a visit to her shop. Melissa has a “by appointment” retail location open pretty much daily during school hours. If you can’t make it there, she is willing to match fabrics and send you a photo so you get exactly what you are expecting!
Thread Riding Hood: Why did you decide to start Funky Monkey Fabrics?
Melissa: I started Funky Monkey Fabrics because I couldn’t find the fabric I was looking for in Canada. There were lots of places to buy in the USA but there was a void here. I wanted to bring the fun, popular, & modern fabrics here at competitive prices so other Canadians didn’t have to worry about duty, exchange, long shipping times etc.
Thread Riding Hood: What is your favorite type of sewing project? Quilting, Apparel… ?
Melissa: I recently started experimenting with knits, so right now I’m having a lot of fun sewing clothes for my kids!
Thread Riding Hood: What is something coming up in the near future that you are especially excited about?
Melissa: My husband is building me floor to ceiling shelving because I have maxed out the space I have. So that means I will have more room for MORE FABRIC! I am continuously bringing in new stock. Recently I have added Double Gauze, Essex Linen, a variety of stabilizers, and a wide range of knits to my store.
Thread Riding Hood: Thanks Melissa!
