*** As of 2019, our store is open ONLINE ONLY!  Thank you for visiting! ***

We’re sisters. We love colour. And fabric. And yarn. We enjoy making things. Hope you do too!

Our shop offers supplies to create your lovingly handmade projects since 2003. We stock only what we absolutely love and offer a hand-picked selection of fresh (at times quirky and/or whimsical and/or vintage-inspired) modern designed cotton fabrics suitable for wearables, quilting and crafts, Liberty of London prints and trim, hundreds of Kaffe Fassett prints, a great assortment of knitting and crochet yarns in a dazzling array of colours, kits, notions, patterns, and tools.

Feel happy, encouraged and inspired! Fill your life with colour and the rewards of making it yourself!

Knowing that what we pick is made in a socially and environmentally conscious manner is very important to us. Our brands are carefully researched to support fair trade, ethical and ecologically sound business practices.

We value the relationships that we have been able to build with so many talented sewists, quilters, knitters, crocheters, crafters, artists and artisans, locally and from further afield, and celebrate their individuality and uniqueness. Our customers become our friends, connected by an appreciation for all things handmade.

Every little detail at Modern Bee reflects that we’re passionate about what we do, and how we believe a neighbourhood boutique should be. We’re also control freaks, but just a teeny tiny bit, and in a good way !

Thank you so much for visiting us! We look forward to welcoming you at our shop and sharing our love for everything handmade!
