Tonia and Dennis are the creative duo behind Fashionable Fabrics. They started their shop in 2004 aiming to provide fashion and novelty fabric for crafters as they, themselves were often frustrated that they can’t find the fabrics they wanted, in one place.

They stock the latest top fabric designers such as:

Alexander Henry, Amy Butler, Anna Griffin, Anna Maria Horner, Art Gallery, David Textiles, Free Spirit, Heather Bailey, Jennifer Paganelli, Kokka, Michael Miller, Moda, Monaluna, Patricia Bravo, Patty Young, Robert Kaufman, Sandi Henderson, Studio e, Valori Wells, and Windham…. and MORE!
