Does anyone know of any Canadian sources for purchasing the appropriate types of netting required for tutus? The accessories i.e. whoops. boning etc. Also the horsehair canvas for the bodices as well as the other various fabrics one might want to use for the body of the costumes.
I am aware of a company in the U.S. but haven't found a Canadian source. Since I live in Ontario, Canada it would be nice to find something here. With any luck within driving distance.
If anyone has any suggestions I would really appreciate them.
Also if anyone who reads this from Canada and uses products found in our common fabric shops what would you recommend that would be comparable to U.S. source products.
Also if there is anyone from Canada who has purchased from U.S. what was your experience with the border crossing costs i.e. duty fees, taxes etc.?
I am hoping to try making tutus for students at the studio where my granddaughters dance. Wish me luck!!
