About Fridays Off Fabric Shop

Hi! Welcome to Fridays Off Fabric Shop.

I'm the owner, Alanna Banks and I'm so glad you discovered my shop.

Proudly Canadian, Fridays Off offers the kind of fabric you want to save for that special project. For the seasoned fabric lover it's pet-worthy fabric.

It all started in January 2013. I was pregnant with my second son (LJ), unhappy with my career and searching for a creative entrepreneurial endeavour. I wanted to sink my teeth into something and go for it.

So, I did!

Everyone I knew (including me!) was buying fabric online from US shops, paying high shipping rates and often times not eligible for special deals or giveaways. I knew I could do what those US shops were doing so, I began sourcing fabric, building my site and learning everything I could about running an online store. In March 2013 I launched Fridays Off Fabric Shop. 

Since then, I've been featured in Style at Home, offer by-appointment shopping in our Queen West studio, and share the fabric love on Instagram and Facebook.

In September 2014 I started one of Canada's only fabric subscription clubs where I send monthly "happy mail" to subscribers right across the country. At the beginning of each month subscribers receive surprise bundles of fabric curated by me. We service hundreds of subscribers every month and I love seeing what people sew up with all that fabric.

Thanks to my past career in public relations I'm a killer communicator. That means I actually take the time to respond to customer emails and love suggesting fabric options for clients' personal projects. So, please get in touch with me any time at alanna@fridaysoff.ca

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
