Ever since Fabricland moved from O’Connor and Pharmacy, I’ve had to travel across town. But not anymore! Thank you macFAB for moving over to the east side. The void has finally been filled.
In this new location since this March, Dale Sonier, called his new shop the “TIFFANY’S” of fabric shops. And it absolutely is folks. The new shop, with it’s SOHO-style flag actually reminds me of a luxury boutique, because it has all the best “in season” fabrics, top quality notions (ribbons, huge selection of buttons, etc.), drapery and home décor good and accessories. They even have felt, which they’ve donated for my “Chair Affair” contribution. Thank you Dale!
macFAB has been around for 13 years, but Dale has been in the fabric business since he was 15 and he has an expert eye for all things beautiful and au courant. This is obvious when his clients include Harry Rosen, interior designers, event planners, and film production houses.
Here’s a peek:
Love, love the selection of printed cottons!
And what I like the most; Dale’s philosophy includes buying local and makes an effort not to buy from China.
There are big things happening on Queen East. “It’s like what Queen West was like when it was cool” says Dale. And I have to agree.
There are some really exciting things slated next year for macFAB. I’ve been sworn to secrecy, so you’ll have to keep your eye on Queen East.
The thing I know for sure is that macFAB is macFABULOUS!
Located at 755 Queen St. East, east of Broadview. Give them a call at 416-922-6000 or just visit. They’re open late most nights.
