Welcome to an Online Fabric Store post with a discount just for you! Let me introduce you to the 8th Canadian Online Fabric Store in our series – Stay Home Fabrics, located in Edmonton, Alberta. Lindsay’s shop has fabulous fabrics, patterns and quilt batting – one stop shopping for your next project!
Lindsay Freistadt keeps shop from the home she shares with her husband and two children. She grew up attracted to anything creative and has now found her favorite – sewing! I’ll let her tell you more:
I have always been drawn to creativity in all its forms. I love the absolute freedom that comes from being able to make something yourself. From choosing the fabrics and design to picking out the final details. I feel like we all follow other peoples rules all day long but at the end of the day, when I go to my sewing studio, all rules disappear and it is all me.
I have been sewing casually for many years now inspired by a couple of good friends, one a co-worker and the other unlikely source, my boss. They both have taught me many things about how to improve my projects and skill level. Just this past year I began taking custom orders and doing a few shows for mostly home décor items, pillows, curtains, baby blankets, hand towels etc. I love letting the fabrics speak for themselves and giving them space to show their beauty. I never could cut the pieces up smaller because I loved how the entire pattern looked. Sounds funny I am sure.
I totally get the “cut the pattern up” comment, so glad I’m not the only one! I’m also happy to welcome Lindsay as a new Thread Riding Hood sponsor. You can find her ads on a few posts this month, so be sure to click over and see what new collections she’s ordered in. If you can’t decide, order her fabric swatch collection and get a piece of every fabric she stocks! Perfect for matching and oh-so-fun to play with.
Thread Riding Hood: What inspired you to start Stay Home Fabrics?
Lindsay: My love of fabric, pattern and design inspired me to start Stay Home Fabrics. I wanted to give Canadians a place where they could buy fabrics online and know the quality of the fabrics was always top notch, the shipping would be fast, and they would never have to pay duty or customs again. I work very closely with my good friend Sarah to pick the newest modern quilting fabrics to have in stock. So if I ever refer to Stay Home Fabrics team or say “we”, this is who I am referring to.
Thread Riding Hood: What is your favorite type of sewing project?
Lindsay: I absolutely love to make anything I can use in my home; Quilts, pillows, hand towels, baby blankets, and anything for my kiddos. My favorite project to date would have to be a set of French Print Curtains and matching Pillows for a girlfriend. They were very unique and added such flair to her room. Did I mention I also love interior design!!!!
Thread Riding Hood: What is something coming up in the near future that you are especially excited about?
Lindsay: I am very excited to be bring in new lines of fabric. We will be bringing on more and more Kona cotton basics this year as well as Robert Kaufman, and a few surprises. I am also excited to be working with more and more small artisans who are taking part in our small artisan program which gives them access to special ordering and 15% off all orders over $200. If someone wants to join this program they just need to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to sign up.
