Hi everyone! I'm brand spankin' new to posting here but i've been on this site constantly for weeks! you are all EXTREMELY talented!
Quick question:
   I have recently (as in 5 hours ago) become obsessed with Alexander Henry's line of fabric "fashion girls" but i can't seem to find anywhere in Ontario, Canada that sells it at non-ridiculous prices. Does anyone know where i can find it? (or even order  it cheapishly?)
thanks in advance for any replies! Smiley

welcome. where in ontario are ya? i'm in ottawa

i got my fabric at a store called tonitex in montreal. i fell in love with it too. here is their website but they are kind of a clearance place so they don't carry stuff all the time. www.tonitex.com
i saw it at equilter www.equilter.com but only in two of the colours both ones i don't have..hmmm hehe its from 2002 so it i think once its gone its gone. here are the two colours they have at equilter its pretty reasonably priced. equilter's search engine sucks so here are the pages exactly. they have tons of stuff and lots of alexander henry stuff its my new obsession Tongue the best way to see them all is typing AH into their search cause thats the product code. you'll get some that aren't his but most are. ok i've talked too much.. Tongue
here are the links

Thanks so much! I'm in Burlington, near Toronto. Yes i think i may be forced to beg my dear boyfriend to lend me money for it to buy  it  off ebay (i just spent $50 this weekend on fabric at fabricland!eep!) I can't wait to make a purse and a skirt out of it! I love the coordinating fabrics as well! They're so choice! Thanks again for the reply, i will check tonitex.com frequently!

don't get carried away on ebay sometimes you bid way too much. i'd go equilter if they have the one that you want.

keep me posted cause i may want to get more too Tongue

i checked the pricing for this one seller on ebay and she combines shipping which is great! i know what you mean by spending too much! I got wrapped up in it a few years ago buying curious george memorabilia and whatnot, i'm telling you it wasn't pretty! the seller "zeetzeet" has good prices and sells the entire line. one yard for her on average is about 12.50 canadian and shipping up to four yards is 5.00 american. i compared with the equilter and it's about the same! i will let you know how it goes!

Ottawa Street in Hamilton has tons and tons of fabric stores.  I haven't been in a while, so I have no idea if they have this stuff specifically (or which of the dozens of stores would have it), but it might be worth a trip from Burlington.

Thanks so much! my baking teacher suggested that to me today as well since he pretty much lives there because he makes costumes for Renaissance festivals! I will definately take a trip there! (and possibly spend billions of dollars on everything but Alexander Henry fabrics!)

woohoo! I won my bidding! mint fashion girls went for 8.50 US and blue fashion girls went for 10.50 i think! My mum wanted the black with red accents and she tried to bid on it but the buyer must have had a crazy max. bid because the bidding went to 18.50 US! For one yard! But yay! i bought my fabric and when i receive it i will make an ohsospecial handbag!

Hi! I know which fabric you mean. In fact I just bought a couple metres of it today at the market for US$2.00 per metre (after bargaining). I love these designs unfortunately the Fashionistas black and pink were the only ones available. I saw them on eBay for US$7.50! Wow!  Wink I bought a bag a few months back which had this design but in a vinyl-back satiny material which is fantastic!

Anyway, we can maybe swap if you need it.....  I am planning on putting up a few items to swap.
