The line up to get into the Grandmother’s Fabric Sale – Friday at 4:00 p.m.
The main area with tables of fabric – and a LOT of people!
For the Edmonton sale, visit the Strathearn United Church on April 1, 2017 to shop for fabrics, notions, yarn, and more. Click the link to learn more about the drop off times too.
If you’re in Calgary, and have fabric, yarn, or sewing/quilting/etc accessories or notions, you can drop them off at the sale location:
- Wednesday, April 19, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM
- Thursday, April 20 from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM
Then… when you’re ready to shop, the sale will be open to the public:
- Friday, April 21, 2017 from 3:00 to 7:30 PM
- Saturday, April 22 from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM
The sale is really awesome – there are all sorts of different fabrics, at dirt-cheap fabrics so it’s easy to build a stash for costuming or crafting. If you look well, you can also find great fashion fabrics for costumes or clothing too.
I wasn’t able to find a date on their website at the time of writing this, but there’s a group in Red Deer too. Hopefully by the time this publishes, they’ll have their information up too. (In the past it has been in April though; I suspect it will be either the 8th or 15th)
Last year the sale was in mid-March.. but at the time of writing they didn’t have their 2017 dates listed. Check their Facebook page here to see if there are upcoming dates.

Other Canadian sales
Other sales from grandmother groups in Canada were in the fall…. I posted in October about sales in Saskatoon and Lethbridge, and the sale in Nanaimo was in September. If these areas are more local to you.. bookmark their sites to check out for next year! Visit the Stephen Lewis website to find chapters near you… and then visit their sites to see when the fabric sale (if they host one) is coming to you!
