10 Great Canadian Online Fabric Stores

10 plus Great Canadian Online Fabric Stores

Hello, Canadian quilting friends! When I first started ordering fabric online, I initially went to the US online stores because of the lower prices. However, I quickly learned that I wasn't getting much of a bargain. 

It didn't take me long to realize I was better off shopping at Canadian online fabric stores. In some cases, the fabric prices may be slightly higher, but the price you pay online in Canadian is the price you pay without the duties, exchange rates, and high shipping costs to worry about.


Shopping USA: Let's do the math . . . 

For one thing, shipping costs from the US can sometimes be outrageous. Also, you have to take into account the current Canadian/US dollar exchange rate, which is pretty high right now. As of this post, the exchange rate on the Canadian dollar is around 1.30. That's right, right now our dollar is only worth around 0.70 cents compared to the US $1.00. This means when you shop US stores online, you're paying 0.30 cents more on the dollar for your fabric. For example, a fabric at $10 US will cost you $13 CAD and $100 US can jump to $130 CAD! And that's before shipping costs.

I still prefer to shop my local stores, but below are 10 of my favourite Canadian online fabric stores with their shipping rates. This is not an exhaustive list. These are just the main stores that I go to if I shop online. If you have any Canadian online shops you like that aren't listed here, let me know.

  4. Great list. However, I am increasingly disturbed to see pricing in half or even quarter yards. I know it does not have to be done that way, so it feels like a bait and switch game. I won't buy from a site that prices that way.
