The Start of our Journey
Beauty of the West Coast
A Store is Born
Richard's ability to know so many of his customers on a first name basis and what their fabric tastes were led to a growing loyal customer base. This meant, slowly but steadily, Fabricana was able to grow.
The 8,000 square foot store on Alderbridge Way allowed them to quadruple their selection, including fabrics direct from Europe and brand name Quilting lines from the USA. Fabricana truly was growing and the future looked bright.
Passing of the Torch
Richard recovered but largely stepped away from the business to focus on his health and left the day-to-day operations in the capable hands of his sons. Richard stayed on to consult and was constantly checking in on his beloved staff at Fabricana, many of whom stayed with the company for over 30 years and only left once retirement came calling.
Hazelbridge Way and Fabricana Home
It was at this time that a separate Fabricana Home division was created which focused specifically on window coverings, upholstery and outdoor fabrics.
The 16,000 square foot space allowed the Surrey Store to mirror our Richmond location and provide excellent fabric selections from Europe, Asia and the USA as well as a separate Fabricana Home store.
Richmond Garden City Road
The Next Generation
Jaysen's accounting background working with successful businesses combined with Greg's experience in textiles was a perfect match. With all the dedicated trusted staff still wanting to serve the sewing consumers of BC, plans were made for a 3rd generation to carry on the Fabricana name.
New Warehouse and Head Office
