I tend to buy more fabric in the summertime, be it from travelling or just more time to browse online. . . Either way most of my shopping is now done almost exclusively through Canadian shops. This post will highlight (in no particular order!) some of the shops I have purchased from. Thanks for the great fabrics!
I finally have some of Lizzie House's mini pearl bracelets. I couldn't resist the colours. This fat quarter pack was purchased from Zoey and Bean fabrics thanks to an instagram sale! Yes, a first for me. It was pretty easy to buy by receiving an invoice through Paypal. She's just starting to stock up and I look forward to seeing her selection grow.

This completely irresistible stack of Uppercase is making me so happy! It's taking most of my willpower not to unfold each piece and wrap myself up in it. It's sooooo happy and bright. What I realized after receiving it was just how much you miss buying online - the details of the fabric designs just don't transfer through a screen. The metallic alphabet and polka dots are so amazing - you'll just have to get some and see for yourself;)
I purchased my Uppercase fat quarter bundle through Fabric Spot. I have purchased here before (a bunch of Tula Pink) and really love how she has her shop offerings laid out online.
Sew Sisters in Toronto is an online shop that I frequently shop - especially their sales. These pieces of yardage I got on sale and are the beginning of my Allietaire stash building. It might take me a while at sale prices to eventually get all I need, but I'm willing to let this one take some time. The hunt for perfect fabrics is definitely enabled by online shopping!
Sew Sisters has a newsletter you can subscribe to that features a monthly deal too.
Most of my recent shopping has been in person, apparently, as my other fabric photos are of pieces I bought in person.
Always support your local shops too - you need them for basics and knowledgeable advice! Plus nothing replaces feeling the fabric before you buy - nothing.
I have also shopped online at Mad About Patchwork
I also compulsively browse Hamel's Fabrics "what's new" because they carry Moda precuts and Pat Sloan fabric ;)
For even more Canadian choices check out Thread Riding Hood and her pinterest board of Canadian Online Fabric Shops
