Thread & Paper Crafts Ltd was formerly known as the Sewing Basket. We purchased the Sewing Basket in downtown Salmon Arm in March 2014. In September 2014 we moved to our new location and also changed the store name to Thread & Paper Crafts Ltd.
Our new store is much larger and we have lots of selection! Besides all the fabulous product offerings, we also offer classes for quilting, sewing, knitting, crochet and card making, kids sewing (ages 5 and up), classes on the Longarm machine and more!

What Our Customers Say
I am so happy to be back! I had a wonderful time in Vancouver for the past 6 months spoiling our grandchildren. BUT there are no shops down there that satisfied my craving for fabric! I came “home” a few times and made sure that I made time to come to Thread and Paper. It was wonderful to walk in the door and be greeted by a smile and a warm hello. The shop is just amazing. So many items displayed to help give you ideas, great staff to answer questions and show you where to look when you can’t seem to find what you want, and on top of it all, when there is something the shop…by some miracle…does not have in stock already, the staff is happy to order it for you!! I love the shop and can only encourage anyone interested in knitting, quilting, scrapbooking…don’t look any further..you have found the best place to look right here in Salmon Arm. Thank you Carol and all your great staff!
From the moment I walk through the door of the Thread & Paper, it is always a great shopping experience. The staff are knowledgable and pleasant to deal with. The product is consistently the best anywhere I have been. I love this shop!
Hello Ladies, Your store is one of my favorite stores to shop at here is Salmon Arm The staff have always been friendly and helpful. Oh and the selections of fabrics to choose from are numerous. Not just fabric is carried but also wool and like products as well scrap booking and everything that you need to take up that hobby. I also went to one of the in store retreats and the food was delicious and all the sewing time was really good for me. No interruptions. My two Janome sewing machines have stood up to all that sewing I have been doing as well. Thanks again.
Thread and Paper, I love to shop in your store. It’s bright and always has a huge selection of fabric to choose from. You offer such a wide variety of classes, no need to get bored in our little town of Salmon Arm. Thanks for being there.
