I live in Victoria, B.C and though I did look at the few local fabric stores I couldn't find what I was after at a price I thought was reasonable. So, as any discouraged shopper would I thought I'd look online. Well, the Canadian sites that I came across were a little disappointing compared to their US counterparts in terms of price point and choice of fabric. I ended up buying from Fabric.com on the recommendation of several Canadian bloggers who had encountered the same difficulty. The shipping wasn't outrageous and I got exactly what I wanted for much less even with the exchange rate.
I am going to recover pillows I bought for my daybed and wanted fabric that was super cheerful and welcoming. Here's what I ordered...i'm pretty excited :)
