Thank you for visiting FlareFabrics.ca and wanting to learn more about us.
Flare Fabrics is the culmination of my dreams, but it's a family and friends affair. My husband built my studio, my children help with the website and family and friends sew the samples for my kits. Every fabric we sell is handpicked for quality and colour.
I juggled my quilting passion while raising three children and working full time. So I'm always looking for projects that are not only creative, modern and fun -- but also quick and easy. Indonesian handmade batiks are my heart's delight and will always be a significant part of what we carry. But it is so much fun to search for eclectic Japanese imported canvas or linen perfect for handbags, clothing and a pillow for the couch. What about the new variety of wonderfully soft organic double gauze now available - perfect to make a quick girls dress or stroller cover? The variety is endless!
When we opened in 2009, Flare Fabrics began as a side business while I was still holding down a full-time corporate position, cutting packing and shipping from the house in the evenings and weekends. In 2015 we moved 1000s of bolts of fabric from our Toronto backyard studio to Brooke Valley, a small community 15 min west of Perth, Ontario in the Ottawa Valley. And in July 2018 we are moving again — but this time only 7 km down the road to 21980 Highway 7, Maberly. A wonderful store with a great history that will be easier for everyone to come see us on our Thursday's, our Open to the Public days. And did I mention that is right next to the Post office? How great is that!!
The sewing, quilting and crafting market is a veritable treasure of unending products, and at Flare Fabrics we are continually working to bring you the best fabrics, exclusive kits, quilt clubs and more. We strive to carry products that will inspire you to be creative in whatever project you are dreaming of!
As an online-only store, we strive for top notch customer service for each and every order and every customer. We love to hear how we are doing, so please get in touch!
As of July 1, 2018: Flare Fabrics 21980 Highway #7 Maberly, ON K0H 2B0
