does anyone know where i can get pure wool felt sheets in vancouver/richmond? (like the acrylic/synthetic ones commonly found).  the only supplier i know of in BC is in nelson and occasionally i need a specific color and the internet is not the most accurate for color matching... 

any leads would be appreciated!

in richmond centre there's a craft store (near coast mountain sports).  i THINK they were 100 % wool.  at least, that's wat the tag said.

is that lewiscraft? or there used to be another craft store in that mall, i remember it carrying more art supplies than lewis craft, and it had the most beautiful dollhouses. is it still there?

i spent too many years as a teenager in that mall,  try yto avoid it now!

hmmm, i know the lewis craft is there- they tend to sell pretty average craft supplies.  i'll check again, tho.  i think i'll just have to use the contact in nelson.  if anyone's interested, they are called 'maple splendor'.  just google that with 'nelson' and you'll see what they have.  wool felt is so much nicer to work with and more 'permenant' than synthetic!

thanx for the tips...

oh yes, and there is a place in ont that sells wool felt and wool felt blends by the meter, with minimum orders in place.  great if you have a group interested in the same materials and want an excellent deal...  they are called 'code felt'.

Fanny's Fabrics used to sell it by the metre, as did the fabric store in Metrotown. Maybe Fabricana might have it?
