Great idea!

Here's some more!


Japanese fabric:

http://www.lettuceknit.com - do mailing orders worldwide
http://www.gnomesweetgnomes.com - CND prices at par with US prices - no handling fee and they have an ebay store as well (website could use some work but the people are super nice)

Thank you both so much!
I really only have a Wal-Mart for supplies, so these will come in handy!

I'd love to hear positive experiences that people have had with these online shops.  I haven't been very happy with a lot of the different places that I've had to order from lately. For example, products not being properly labelled, pictures that are way too small, shopping carts that don't work, products listed that they don't actually have, the owner emailing me to say that the shipping cost is really high, but not giving me a quote, etc.... frustrating.   I want to know who should be getting my business!

i just got an order from www.yarnsale.ca
it came quick
postage was reasonable
no customs b/c it is canadian
best bit: i got Debbie Bliss wool/cotton for less than $4 a ball!

ps it is a bit of wading through novelty yarn but there are some select lovely natural fibers available at pretty good rates!

Nice... I added Yarn Sale to the list.

A few months back I wasn't able to log into Pen Ink and Paper (http://peninkpaper.com) and there was no responce from the admin when I emailed them with my problem.  I just tried logging in again today and it worked.  I guess it was just a kink that they had to work out... hopefully everything goes well with them now, they're the only online retailer (aside from Lacy's which doesn't have a great selection) of PMC and PMC accessories in Canada that I know of.

I'm sorry these were posted! hehe. I haven't had any experience ordering online through them, by my experiences at their bricks & mortar stores were quite good.

Some that I like:

http://thatbeadlady.com/home.htm - bead patterns/kits/supplies - located Southern Ontario, very friendly, good service, has store on location too (often buy from them when they have a booth at the local bead or craft fairs in Toronto)

http://www.beadfx.com/ - I usually shop at their store or booth when they are at a craft/bead show since I live very close to them

http://torontobeadsociety.org/ - not a store, but the local bead society - links to some artisans who sell patterns, etc, like Maria Rypan

http://canbead.com/index_loaded.html - located in Ottawa - good supplier of semi-precious goods.  Again, I buy from them when they are in town with craft shows (namely the Creative Sewing and Needlework Festival)

http://frabels.com/ - located in Quebec - mainly a wholesaler for those who qualify

http://johnbead.com/ - located in Toronto, also a wholesaler

http://www.thebeadshopcanada.com/MainCatalogPage.html - a BC bead shop

http://northernbead.com/ - haven't had to order from them yet - located in Toronto, looks promising

For general crafts, lots of crochet/knit/cross stitch, etc:

http://www.marymaxim.com/Default.asp - located in Paris, Ontario
(they operate bigyarnsale.ca too)

Also for knit/crochet patterns and needles/hooks

http://karpstyles.com/ - located in Northern Canada

And a good supplier for nicely priced yarn, located in BC (I have ordered from them at least three times, very satisfactorily:
