about us

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

After 10 years in the historic Old Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, we changed our name to Modern Bee when we moved both our shops just minutes down the road to Virgil. Now we're very happy to offer the best of both Ciutadella Gallery and Bee Fabrics and Yarns at one convenient location!

Find supplies to create your lovingly handmade projects. We select only what we absolutely love and offer an exciting collection of fresh 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, notions, books, patterns, and tools.

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

At Modern Bee we also offer hand-picked goodies to give or treasure: colourful, creatively designed jewellery and accessories, kids' toys, stationery, decorative items and other finds that make us squeal with delight!

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 truly believe that each item we select for our shop is special; don't hesitate to ask why -there's very likely a story that we'd like to share with you!

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!
