I'm Alicia, nice to meet you! My husband Chris and I started Dinkydoo Fabrics in 2015.
Our store specializes in modern and contemporary fabric, from bright and colourful prints, to gorgeous low volume collections.
We began as an online only shop, but since then we've opened up our own Local Quilt Shop in Pitt Meadows, BC., Canada, so we could serve our local community as well!
We're here to help you every step of the way on your quilting adventure! We provide the best possible service we can - way outside the typical 9-5.
We have some amazingly talented staff who love to help out, are nuts about quilting, and are here to give you everything you need, every step of the way.
What do we do?
We ship happy fabric (and notions!) to our customers in Canada, the U.S., and International.
We only sell premium quilting fabric from the top manufacturers in the industry, as we believe when you're working on something so personal, you should have the best material for the job!
Our online store is here to serve you 24x7. We take pride in making it the fastest and best we can for our customers.
Our local store provides a much needed quilt shop in Vancouver and Lower Mainland. You can pick up your orders placed online, we have fun sew-ins, and we also offer sewing machine repairs courtesy of Castle Sewing.
Aside from helping run the shop, I'm nuts about quilting as much as I can (time, and children permitting!)
I'm the former President of the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild (and current member!) and I love doing my part to help the VMQG with all the sew ins, events and retreats!
What's a Dinkydoo?
We always come up with goofy nicknames for our kids and pets. When our son was born, we started calling him Dinkydoo - it just fit. It's a silly name, but we love it!
So we decided to use that for our store and make it just as memorable.
It's fun meeting people who've heard of us and hear them say "Dinkydoooooo!" (Everyone always extends the O sound) If we make people smile, we're OK with that!
