In Vancouver Tomorrow? Meet Me at Atex Designer Fabrics!

What are you doing tomorrow afternoon, Wednesday the 10th? If you’re free and in Vancouver, come to Atex Designer Fabrics! I’ll be doing a Meet & Greet at their newly opened store.Meetandgreet_Tasia01

I’ve already visited the store since it opened and it was great! Lots of wools, silks, and apparel fabrics at reasonable prices. (I bought a beautiful piece of plaid wool silk.) It has amazing neon lights in the window that blink ‘FABRIC’ to catch your eye from the street.

I’ll be there from 4-7pm, perfect for stopping by after work. I’ll have books if you wanted to pick up a signed copy. It would make a great gift for the sewing friends in your life! They stock Sewaholic Patterns as well and of course, plenty of fabric!

See you there!

    Say hello to Dave for me. When I ran my online fabric business, Timmel Fabrics, I bought more than half of my fabrics from Atex. Dave was the best, he always came through with good fabrics and great service.
    I am glad that he has opened a retail store now, and I will be sure to tell my friends they can now buy from him directly.

      Oh wonderful! That’s great to hear good feedback already. I certainly will say hi, if he is there! It’s a beautiful store, with chandeliers and a balcony and cool signage.

      I did say hi! And he remembered you and says hi back. :)

    I’m not sure if I’ll have time to stop by there tomorrow, but checking out the new store is definitely on my to do list in the near future! It’s going to be very dangerous, having that right across the street from Dressew…

    I am delighted to hear there is going to be a good fabric store downtown. I live in the north and we usually stay downtown when visiting Vancouver. I like Fabricana but it is a bit of a journey on public transit and foot!
    Thanks for letting us know about Atex.

    I might try to pop by! I wondered where they moved to and they are conveniently across from Dressew (that’s what the picture tells me)! So good.

    Ha! That first photo brilliantly illuminates the store location! Oh my gosh, how awesome to have another textile store across from Dressew. From your description, I don’t see them as competing with each other, but more as supporting us, the purchasers! The interior looks beautiful, by the way! Anyways, thanks for spreading the word. I hadn’t heard of this store, and knowing me…I have blinders on when I go to Dressew, and may not have even looked across the street. Tomorrow, eh? I may just try and come into the city!

    Oh how wonderful! I can’t believe I didn’t notice the store when I was at dressew last week, I can even see the exact fabric I was looking for but couldn’t find across the street, maybe I’ll see you tomorrow!

    New fabric store??? Be still my heart!! I’m calculating whether I can get there after work or not – if not, I will be checking it out REALLY soon – thanks for the heads up!! :D:D

    I usdd to visit Atex almost weekly when I lived in Vancouver. He had the best fabrics at the best prices. Glad to see he has a larger store. I am in Oakville now nothing comes close to Atex, but he told me this when I told I was moving. Lol.
