My List for Canadian Online Modern Fabric Stores

Over the last six months, I have found some awesome Etsy fabric shops to get my fabric supplies for my own Etsy shop Life On Island Studio. 

I really enjoy supporting smaller online stores on Etsy, but most of them were in the USA. The shipping costs and the exchange rate with the US dollar has gotten a little ridiculous, so I couldn't keep that up! 

I am actually grateful for that challenge because it pushed me to look harder for Canadian online fabric stores. There aren't many on Etsy that carry modern quilting fabrics so I have been doing a wider search instead. It wasn't always easy to find these modern fabric shops, so I thought I would share my list with you here. 

How did I find these shops? 

Instagram has been the best place for me to discover Canadian online fabric shops, even better than Google! By following other quilters and fabric lovers, I have found suppliers. I have also been followed by fabric shops. It's been a wonderful resource and source of inspiration. I mentioned before how much I love my studio Instagram account, I pretty much only follow quilters and artisans, as opposed to my main IG @lifeonisland where I follow friends and many homeschoolers. 

Here is the list of online Canadian modern fabric shops that I have discovered as well as Canadian Etsy stores. It is in no particular order, but the ones with stars at the start of the name I have bought from and had wonderful service with!
