About Fridays Off Fabric Shop

Hi! Welcome to my little fabric shop.

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

Fridays Off Fabric Shop is one of a small group of online fabric shops in Canada offering good quality, modern designer 100% cotton 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 shop. In March 2013 I launched Fridays Off Fabric Shop. 

Since then, I've been featured in Style at Home, make a semi-regular appearance on the Canadian Living blog Make & Do, host open houses in my home "studio" and do everything I can to spread the fabric love. That includes talking to my customers and suggesting fabric options for clients' personal projects.

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 either six or twelve fat quarter surprise bundles curated by me. The club has reached over 100 subscribers and is growing every day and I love seeing what people are making with all that fabric.

For now the team consists of me with some slave labour from the Hubs and the littles. So if you have questions, comments, concerns or just need someone to nerd out about fabric with you can get in touch any time at alanna@fridaysoff.ca

Thank you and I'm so glad you discovered my shop!
