Darrell Thomas Textiles originally opened its doors September 18, 2000 and quickly became well known for providing the most beautiful and original dressmaking textiles in Ottawa, Canada. Darrell and Thomas opened this store with the purpose of providing the sewing community a boutique with well represented Textiles and Interior Accessories.
We opened our first store in the 240 Sparks Shopping Centre, which is located in the downtown core of Ottawa. At this location, we sold high quality textiles for clothing as well as a selection of Home Couture articles such as pillows, throws, and pillars. But after four years, we found that we had outgrown our premises and decided to look for a new home.
We moved into a larger space on Bank Street. At this location we refined our collection of fabrics and focussed on quality textiles. At this location we also realized that we did not need a busy Main street or shopping mall to do our business. After five years on Bank Street, we decided to expand into a larger premises.
We quickly found our new home at 153 Preston Street. A charming building with a lot of style and charm. At this location, not only do we sell high quality dressmaking textiles and designer buttons (43 000 in stock), but we also feature sewing classes. We have a large fully-equipped classroom. We teach beginner to Advanced sewing. We have also launched our ready-to-wear collection. Darrell Thomas Collection was launched to have timeless clothing pieces made with the best fabrics. Clothing may be purchased from the racks or ordered in another fabric from our store, the possibilities are endless!
Our business is built upon a reputation of trust and honesty. We hope that you are as passionate about our new store as we are. If you are in Ottawa, please feel free to drop by! On September 18, 2016, we will be celebrating our 16th Anniversary.
We look forward to serving you!
