The Shop 

In our online shop, we curate garment fabrics, sewing supplies, bra-making supplies, and sewing patterns with today’s dressmaker in mind. We are committed to sourcing the good stuff only ‑ the modern, wearable, high-quality fashion materials that are so hard to find at your local big-box fabric store. We hand-pick each item and add new products to our shop weekly. 

We've made it our mission is to bring hard-to-find garment materials to Canadian home sewists and DIY dressmakers. We also ship worldwide!

Owner, CEO, the woman behind it all. If you have ever wondered why everything at Blackbird is so thoughtfully planned out, well-executed, and perfectly pinterest-able, it is all thanks to Caroline. An avid home chef and The Bachelor enthusiast, Caroline spends her time away from Blackbird Fabrics having the weekday ladies nights that we all dream about. 

Fun Fact: Caroline's favourite time to sew garments is the night before she plans on wearing them.

Fran is our goddess of order fulfillment. She started at Blackbird after an epic three month long road trip all over the USA with her van, Lil' Sebastian. When she isn't cutting, packing, and shipping your orders, you can find her drafting personal sewing patterns and hitting the slopes!

Fun Fact: She loves to break the rules. Especially if the rule is coming up with a fun fact.

If you have emailed in to Blackbird, you have almost definitely been in touch with this queen of customer relations. What you may not know is that Laura is also the brains behind scouring the 'net for the latest fabric trends and has a truly epic photographic memory of almost every sewing pattern on the market.

Fun Fact: Laura has a degree in Geography and loves making maps!

She's the behind the scenes queen, working on website and product development. If she is not at her computer, you can most likely find her brewing another cup of coffee or bothering the rest of the office with the tea on the latest episode of Rupaul's Drag Race.

Fun Fact: Natasha has seen Beyoncé in concert 3 times, and has no plans on stopping.
