Fabric Sale Alert: 20% Off All Solids

Happy Friday fabric lovers! Just popping in for a quick FYI: we’re running a fabric sale in the shop now through Sunday: 20% off all solid fabrics! Use the code BASICS20 at checkout.


Solids sometimes get overlooked for all the shiny, colourful stuff, no? But if there’s one thing I’ve learned through my years sewing, it’s not to forgot to sew up some basics once in while. Stock up on solids and set yourself up to sew some wardrobe staples throughout the winter!

One more thing: we’ve added extra categories to the shop to help you find what you’re looking for. You can now view all of our solids in one place, as well as prints, knits, and wovens.

Have a great weekend & enjoy the fabric sale!


Blackbird Shop Gift Certificates!

Great news! We now have real life three dimensional gift certificates available in the shop. They are bee-yoo-ti-ful.

Gift Certificate 3

There is no better gift for a seamstress than the gift of fabric! Our gift certificates do not expire and are valid for all products in our shop.

Gift Certificate 2

They’re printed on 100% recycled uncoated card stock, so they have a lovely matte finish. We designed the card in our signature pistachio colour and the front reads “a gift for you”.

You’ll be able to choose between multiple denominations from $25 – $200 (Canadian dollars). We will fill out and send the gift certificate directly to your recipient free of charge, via Canada post lettermail. Or, if you’d prefer, have it shipped to yourself and we can leave it blank for you to fill out. Just leave us a note in the order comments!
