so where does everyone go to get their fabric/supplies?

i live out in surrey but i'm fairly mobile (car, love the skytrain, etc), so i travel about quite a lot
i found the greatest place on main and 44th(ish?)

i paid 10 dollars and got a sari, a metre of blue silk that will turn into a shirt, and another metre of gooooorgeous chinese brocade that will probably end up being a wallet or change purse.

any other secret hideaways?

try textile clearance house on fraser just below 41st! fantastic! & cheap! usually carries extras from fabricland, at half the price. & if you get a membership ($5) it's even cheaper!
