Canada: Lion's Brand

PhilNmtl's picture

Has anyone in Canada found a place to buy Vanna's Choice? My LYS has told me that none of the smaller shops carry it and I have even been to the dreaded Walmat. It seems that Redheart and Bernat are the economy brands of choice - any sense of colour matches on those for Jason's blanket? I tried US mail order and was told that it would be about three weeks for delivery. I'd like to share in this project but have to be realistic. IDEAS?? - Phil

Doe you have any "Michael's" locally?

How about JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby?

We have Hobby Lobby ....but a different gang I think. Mostly RC aircraft etc. Michael's does have a location in Ottawa (about 2.5 hours - & no car here) but curiously while they list the yarn on their web site, one cannot purchase it online. We have at least a dozen excellent yarn stores that I know of in Montreal but no luck there so far. I am continuing the search.
