We're having a great week. Lots of new fabric and a treat for sewists who have students in their lives. We've created a new theme on the site called "back to school" that includes fabrics that reminded us of all things education related. Until Sunday August 21 at midnight, you'll get 15% off these fabrics when you use the promo code "School". Check out the assortment here.
And, don't forget... we are opening a new space with Country Clothesline in Toronto. You will be able to shop in person. Address, hours and launch date to come. Sign up for the Fabric Spark newsletter to stay informed.

Hi Sewists to the south.
This is a great time to be shopping north of the border. Right now the exchange rate for US dollars into Canadian dollars is very favourable.
For example, on March 31, 2015 VISA USA posted that it cost only $7.12 USD to buy $10.00 CAD worth of goods, (even if you're bank is charging a 2% foreign purchase fee).
That's like getting more than a 26% discount on the Canadian price.
Your dollars are worth that much more when you buy from a Canadian online fabric store. Exchange rates fluctuate so please check with your bank, Paypal or your credit card provider, but while the Canadian dollar is low, it's a great time to stock up.
Remember prices on the site are shown in Canadian dollars, if you're shopping with a US credit card or Paypal account, they will calculate the exchange when you make your purchase.

There is a new member of the Fabric Spark team! Emma B has joined us to help fill orders, get the shop ready, make up new bundles and keep us laughing and energized. Emma is a recent grad from Queens, loves fabric, sewing, and (as evidenced above) public art. She is a joyful and thoughtful person and I couldn't be happier to have her on board. Emma will look after everything at fabric lovers HQ here, while I'm taking a short summer break. You're in excellent hands.
