Sew Tuff Tofino BC

I found this little shop in Tofino last time we went to the west coast and had a chance to revisit it last week-end.

Strutting his stuff inside was this little guy.
 His name is Winston and he's bigger than this now as he's 5 months old but he is still pretty little. He's a mini pig and won't get very big but he's teething now and he wanted to chew on my runners!
This shop is WONDERFUL - the owner is in her early 30's and just buys what she likes. And though I'm not in my 30's (haha) I found a lot to like and settled on these fabrics (had to buy after I drooled on them)
Do you like? I sure do. I'm hoping to make a baby quilt and think I can fussy cut 15 birds out. Tried to start cutting today but you know, I just couldn't do it - worried about making a mistake. Please wish me luck.
Anyway this shop is really refreshing and I plan on getting to know it, the owner and Winston very well over the next few years. Her website is easy to navigate and she welcomes online orders and has her fabric online for you to see. If you take a look let me know what you think.


  1. How fun! A pig in a quilt shop! I love the fabric you chose. It will make a great little baby quilt!

  2. This looks like a great shop, I didn't know there was one there. I don't get across the island very often but will have to check it out. Thanks for sharing the link. Good luck with your quilt it sounds great.

  3. I live in Victoria and had no idea there was quilt shop in Tofino. Mini pig !!?? Too cute. I'd go just to see the piggy!

  4. You done good Vicki-new shop and great fabric! Love the pig, too cute. Have fun.
