The Great Fabric Loft Stash
The Fabric Loft is an online fabric shop owned and operator by Chantelle Taylor & Brenda McArthur. This shop offers monthly subscriptions, fabric by the half meter, LDH Scissors and our newest addition "The Mother's Day Box".
After being in business together since May 2021, we decided to rebrand Fridays Off to The Fabric Loft.
Yes - we - did - it!!
We rebranded Friday’s Off to The Fabric Loft!
We wanted a fresh look and a name we could resonate with.
Our mission is to continue to provide high quality brand name fabrics by many designers. We will continue to grow while focusing on our
Reliability | Trustworthiness | Efficiency.
Our commitment to process monthly subscriptions quickly and ship fast is a huge goal we work towards every month. With many supply issues we’ve continued to step up to the challenge and deliver an incredible fabric subscription service.
We’ve expanded : we've brought on new designers and suppliers (wait til you see what’s ordered!!!)
We continue to diversify and learn, we strive to make sure that every single customer receives their order happily and wanting more!!
Our subscriptions are all amazing - ALL 6 of them have a unique value they bring to you as a customer.
In 2021 we created our 3+6 month gift subscriptions- all of the reviews back have been great and we continue to offer this product year-round.
Collaboration is imperative to providing local and supporting local and being well rounded … we have some exciting things to come.
In May 2021, Brenda took over Fridays Off and began her new journey with owning an online fabric shop.
Rewind a few years, maybe decades and we are back in Orangeville, Ontario. Brenda's mom is a fabric shop owner and has the best and biggest fabric stash of her own. Marlene's shop is called The Sew'n Box. Brenda watches her mom have this great fabric shop, which is also a dealer for Bernina sewing machines. The shop continues to grow and is a big part of the community.
Fast forward, Brenda and her young family move to Orillia, Ontario in the late 1990's and a group of ladies start getting together to sew. Brenda, at first isn't in love with the idea, growing up with all that fabric and sewing didn't persuade her to be an avid sewer like her mom. The ladies met every week and they start by sewing quilt blocks. Over time it grew and they learnt all the tricks and before long this story was history and Brenda was known for the beautiful quilts she made and gifted to loved one.
Fast forward again, it's 2021. Brenda now has 5 amazing grand-kids, her sons are now fathers and she has the opportunity to take a leap of faith and take over Fridays Off Fabric Shop. It's been a wild journey of learning how to operate an online store as well as figuring out a subscription service. Ordering fabric and keeping stock has been a challenge due to the pandemic, all in all it's been a great first year. With new opportunities comes new challenges that we navigate and are excited to be apart of.
