Testimonial

“I travel to Ottawa at least on a quarterly basis and when I fly in, I book an earlier flight so that I can visit Darrell Thomas textiles. I have found that purchasing designer buttons and replacing those on purchased clothing adds a special touch to coats, suit jackets and blouses. I used to shop for buttons in Italy when I traveled there, but I have found that the buttons at Darrell Thomas are better, easier to find and more cost effective especially when there is a clearance sale. LOVE IT!!!”

Testimonial

“I don’t sew a ton so I usually go to Darrell Thomas for little things like buttons or notions or a meter of this or that and I always receive attentive, personal service. Their fabrics and buttons are so inspirational and their beautiful new location shows off their stock so well! I also love knowing I’m supporting a local small business when I shop there–a business with heart since they are so dedicated to supporting the cat rescue!”

Testimonial

“Good morning Mr. Thomas. Last night my husband and I dropped in looking for buttons. I had been told about your store by a coworker . After visiting with you I felt like I had died and gone to heaven. I hadn’t been in a store like yours since I was in college in Toronto. Thank you for the wonderful chit chat and for bringing back memories. When you said you knew the old Dress Maker Supply Store and it had gone bankrupt I thought holly cow someone who knows what I am talking about. I could tell my husband was having fun listening to us. You made my evening and the buttons I found were absolutely perfect.”
