Fabric Mecca, Here I Come!

I won't be around for the next few days. My husband & I are going up to Toronto to visit his brother. My brother-in-law just bought a new house that I haven't seen yet, so up to TO we go. However, I cannot tell a lie - I have other more nefarious motives for agreeing to this journey:

Two words - FABRIC DISTRICT.

Here I come Queen Street. There a few stores that I never miss - LA Fabrics, The Wool House and Mokuba Trims. There are several other stores that I enjoy going into as well, but I can't remember the names - I'll have to pay better attention this time around.

I'll report back next weekend on my haul - see you then!

I used to live in Toronto and know all the stores you are refering to. My favorite online fabric store is www.iluvfabrix.com . This company sells everything at below designer wholesale prices and they have an in house designer that will assist you for free in picking your fabrics and designing your room. They sell Scalamandre, Colefax & Fowler, Cowtan & Tout, Brunschwig & Fils and many, many other high end brands. You can visit them at http://www.iluvfabrix.com
