macFAB Fabrics

Now that we have found our new home, I'm on the lookout everywhere it seems for new fabrics. My love of Amy Butler fabrics has lead me to macFab, a fabric store located here in Toronto, and they have an online shop here as well.

"MacDonald Faber has been servicing Canada and the United States since 1955. Dale Sonier, who saw a great Canadian company and wanted it to continue and expand well into the future, purchased MacDonald Faber over 10 years ago. The company was renamed macFAB and has been transformed from a supplier of tailor and dressmaker goods, notions, and theatrical supplies to a stylish and trendy retail store, which has expanded to include fabrics, sewing services and wholesaling home products which are sold worldwide. "

Not only do they carry Amy Butler, but lots of other well know lines as well, King West, Loft, macSuede, Robert Allen, Silk, Sunbrella, and Urban.


Here are a few of my personal favorites that I'm considering for our new place. Our bedroom wall colour is a shade of greige, I think these will go quite nicely, don't you? Maybe I'll get adventurous and sew my own duvet cover, as I'm not seeing anything I like!

Love your fabric choices. Would look great with your greige walls. Just wanted to say that Etsy is also a great place to buy fabric. Even with the dollar exchange it is cheaper than macFab. Also Designerfabrics.ca. Just thought I would tell you. Happy fabric hunting.
