Hi everyone, I've posted in a couple other places on the board with the same question...

I'm going to Ottawa on business in a couple weeks and want to prowl the local fabric stores in the evenings. Can you personally recommend any? I'm mostly interested in stores that may carry things unique to Canada -- not maple leaf prints, they have those here, too, LOL -- but brands, fabric lines, notions etc. that are exclusively manufactured/ distributed in Canada.

I have Googled, checked Yelp, etc. I'm wondering what personal recommendations you have. Thanks in advance for your help!

honestly,we dont get that much fabric choices in Canada as you ladies do in the US. i've been to ottawa and personally can't recommend anything. quilting stuff are expensive here, more like almost 3 times more. i've been to their Fabricland, and i especially like the one they have on Merivale Road, Nepean, they hv great good quality cheap knit ends which is good for my projects and i think its the biggest in ottawa.

I've heard of Dragonfly fabric downtown but haven't been there. next time i am there, i am probably going to check "east indian" fabric, the sarees and stuff like that.

siltex mills is a canadian company and from what i've heard, they have the best interlock.

have fun!

Two years ago when I traveled to the Ottawa area someone suggested C & M Textiles. Their website is confusing but there is an Ottawa address at the bottom of the page. I didn't visit the store but I have heard they have some beautiful fashion fabrics.

I live in Ottawa and there are not many stores that carry "Canadian" fabric but we do have quite a few very nice stores. Darrell Thomas Textiles is one of the best for high quality fashion fabrics and the owner is very helpful. The prices are on the higher end of the scale however. C&M Textiles also carries som very nice fashion fabrics as well as home dec fabrics. Same for Rockland Textiles. I haven't been to Dragonfly Fabrics since they moved locations but they had some very nice quilting fabrics as well as some nice knits and fashion fabrics. These are the main independent fabric stores in Ottawa. The only other fabric stores in the city are Fabricland. Hope this helps and you enjoy your time in Ottawa.
