Fabric Store Closing Announcement

by | Feb 16, 2023 | Announcements

On February 7, 2023, I announced to our email subscriber list that I will be closing the store and website. As you can imagine, this is not a decision to come to and it’s one that has taken me a year to finally decide on. I’ve loved running this shop, and letting go is so hard, yet I feel a peace that it’s time for me pursue a new chapter in life. Stepping into a new adventure is both scary and frightening, knowing we have to let go of one thing to have another, and courage and faith are both necessary to move forward.
We have had a good run for six and a half years now, and we’re so grateful for the friends and connections we’ve made on this journey. I’ve learned so much, starting out as a stay-at-home mama with no experience running a business, to hiring team members, serving such an amazing community of women, to weathering all the uncertainties of a pandemic and the after effects. What a journey!
Thank you so much for your support the past years. We are so thankful for the privilege we’ve had to serve our wonderful Canadian sewists.
I don’t have the timeline all nailed down to exact details, as we have a lot of inventory, fixtures, furniture and supplies to sell off, but I will keep you updated.

Storefront/In-Person Shopping
Our storefront is open for in-person shopping, however our stock in store is limited. Anything under 10 meters is removed from our showroom so we don’t oversell. Feel free to ask in store about a particiular fabirc you saw in stock on our website.
Current hours for in-store shopping:
10-3, Wed-Fri
10-2, Sat
Please join our local Facebook group to stay up to date on these hours. We will likely be closing the showroom permanetly near the end of March. Before that we will be selling off fixutres and furniture.
The website will remain open through at least the end of March, and then we will evaluate if there is enough stock left to relocate to a smaller space while we sell the rest, or if we will close entirely at that point.

With our current discounts, and the bonus discounts below, we are selling everything at wholesale pricing or better. If you are interested in deadstock fabric at closing, please email us info@watertowertextiles.ca.
Supplier Info
In the event that we end up selling the business instead of closing, we will not be sharing our supplier info with anyone except the new owners.
Business Purchase Inquiries
