Elegant Fabrics was started by Grace Frey in 2009 as an additional product line in the quilt and craft store that she was operating at the St Jacobs Farmer Market at the time. During the next few years this part of the business became her primary interest and focus and after significant growth the rest of the retail business was sold to a long time employee and the fashion fabric portion of the business was relocated to her daughter’s garage in the village of Wallenstein ON. Two years later the store was moved to a retail location in the town of Elmira to accommodate the growing business.
Starting in 2017 Elegant Fabrics began printing some of its own fabric designs. These designs are by Chearie Design and are exclusive to Elegant Fabrics. We will continue to add to this collection and are welcoming customer feedback on what they feel is a need in the marketplace. We are excited about having our own prints and expect that this will be a growing part of our business.
