Bought a PDF sewing pattern from a designer, but don't want to tape all those little pieces from your home printer together? We are your local shop to print A0 or CopyShop pattern files (36" wide) on a large-format printer!
The shop is based in Kitchener, Ontario, where we offer curbside pickup with no minimum order. In Kitchener and Waterloo, we use a local delivery service with same or next day delivery for $10. Or a little farther away, we ship in Ontario for a flat rate of $14 folded or $16 rolled. Orders are filled within 2 business days, and sent via Canada Post ExpressPost. Plus, orders over $125 (before tax) ship for free.
We don't offer sewing classes, but we do recommend some great Ontario shops with classes and independent teachers! Check out these lovely teachers if you are in the area:
- Toronto: Shoppe and Tailor Studios (they also have an amazing space you can work from, with rental equipment!)
- Waterloo: Sewing Till Sunset
- Hamilton: Needlework
- Ottawa: Fabrications
Here are a few of our favourite independent fabric shops in Ontario. Whether you bought your fabric there or anywhere else, we can help you find and print a great pattern to sew with it!
Greater Toronto Area
Ottawa and Eastern Ontario
Need some pattern inspiration? We are working on a listing of garment patterns by independent designers, over at MyNextMake.com. It's still a work in progress, so if you don't find anything you love there, check out some Ontario designers like Victory, Pollywoggles, Blue Calla, and Bra-Makers Supply.
Looking for some sewing community and support? Ontario has several Garment Sewist Guilds full of wonderful people who want to share the love of handsewn garments.
As sewists, we love the process of making, but some parts of it are more fun than others. Taping together 30-60 pieces of letter-sized paper before you can even start cutting your fabric? That's not my idea of fun.
- Purchase a PDF pattern from a designer, and download the A0 or CopyShop version of the file.
- Upload your pattern file to our website, here.
- Tell us how many pages the pattern has, if you'd like colour printing, if you only want some size layers printed, and any other details.
- Check out and choose your pickup or shipping option.
How does submitting prints work? Unsure of how to do this? Here's a step-by-step walkthrough.
