UPDATED 29 April 2020

Like it or not, there are fewer and fewer fabric stores in Canadian towns and cities, so whether you have a special project in mind or you just want to keep your stash from dwindling, it's a good idea to have one or two (or a few dozen) online fabric stores in mind for shopping. Some of these shops also carry specialty items, things you just can't find at a lot of brick-and-mortar fabric stores (like Kraft-tex® or organic hemp). Sure, you can't pet the fabric, but hard times call for tough measures.
I've put together this HUMONGOUS list (162 at last count) of Canadian online fabric stores, and as of the day I'm posting unless they're active (though some are temporarily closed due to COVID-19) and doing business. There are a couple for which I'm waiting for updates. If you're visiting this page sometime in the future and you notice a dead link or a closed shop, please email me and let me know so that I can keep the list up-to-date. I'm arranging them geographically so that if some of you prefer to use the "pick up locally" option--and also to encourage you to SHOP LOCAL and help keep your local business people going. The ones local to me (Kitchener-Waterloo area) are listed at the top.
One thing to note - there were so many shops that cater to quilting that at some point I just stopped adding them. But if you have a favourite and it isn't listed, by all means send me a message and let me know about it.
Looking for something in particular (like minky or vinyl?) Then enter CTRL+F and type in the word you're looking for. If it's mentioned on this page, it will be highlighted.

Here's an unsolicited tip for any shop owners who might be reading this--if your customers see "Not Secure" in the browser address bar, you may be losing orders. Nobody wants to enter their payment and personal info when the site doesn't appear to be secure. Talk to a web pro.

And finally, to any merchants whose logos are above, I added them because I thought they were catchy and figured it would give you some added publicity. But if you don't want your design on this post, notify me and I will take it down immediately.
