Where did the history of Atlantic Fabrics begin?
Picture this: The '80s, neon and leg warmers, and, amidst it all, Atlantic Fabrics was born. From our modest beginnings, we've come a long way, but our mission remains unaltered - to kindle the flames of sewing and crafting in every heart.
As we traversed the threads of time, we weren't just a store; we were a vision. "From the outset, we wanted to be local leaders in the creative industry," reminisces Kathy Dean. Armed with a treasure trove of new, unique products, and a commitment to offering the best value, we set sail. Our secret ingredient? Knowledge and impeccable customer service. Conversations with our cherished patrons were like golden threads, weaving our future.
Our maiden year witnessed an unexpected twist – the Cabbage Patch Dolls and Care Bears fever! Instead of high-end fashion fabric, we became the go-to place for stuffing and cuddly cuteness. So, we did what we do best – we adapted! We unveiled our Creative Classes, teaching generations the art of sewing, igniting sparks of creativity. The story of Atlantic Fabrics was not merely about selling; it was about nurturing passions.
Year two, and the adventure unfolded further. With the province's ever-growing interest in craft supplies, we expanded our repertoire to include an array of crafts. We were no longer just about fabrics; we had turned into a creative mecca, leading the charge in the world of crafting. Our journey was like a tapestry, each year adding vibrant, new threads.
