Retail Therapy: Man of the Cloth

The National Post recently featured Toronto entrepreneur Dale Sonier owner of iconic Toronto fabric store MacFab. Despite a recent move from Queen West to Leslieville, MacFab continues to attract a loyal customer base for its wide array of unique fabrics. 

"I swore I'd never go east, and now I swear I'll never go back west!" MacFab owner Dale Sonier declares about his new Leslieville neighborhood location (MacFab, at 755 Queen Street East, 416-922-6000). "People say hello to me on the street. It's like Queen West was when I was 15." There's no sign out front at his fabric emporium MacFab, just a flag ("like SoHo in New York"). Inside, a series of crystal chandeliers glint beneath the painted tin ceiling and spools of grosgrain ribbon in shades from cream to chartreuse are piled high on the ledge above the front door.As you come in, several sample styles of MacFab's popular custom headboard service hang on the left wall. Among them are the classic SoHo ($730 for double with 2.5 yards of fabric), the Cosmopolitan, a curved headboard with nailhead trim ($920 for double/queen with 2.5 yards of fabric) and a traditional French tufted version ($1,200 for double/queen)."
