    Fleece in Canada

    I'm giving my cage a total make over and changing out all the fleece. I went to Lens Mills (factory outlet in S. Ontario) and Fabricland. I picked up a few pieces at each but placed the main order with Jo-Ann's on-line. Most of it was on sale, so the price works out to about the same at any of the three options, even with shipping and exchange. So far I haven't seen any extra shipping charges and it only took a week to get here.

    Canada Post on-line notifications says it's sitting at my front door. I'm at work. I'm soooo excited!!!! I'm tempted to fake an injury so I can go home and start sewing.

    Awesome! Can't wait to see the new fleece.

    I will have to keep that Jo Anns place in mind for myself if they ship to Canada!

    I order all my fleece from Joann's when it's on sale. Usually once shipping and everything was factored it worked out to 6-7 dollars a yard. This was when anti-pill was on sale for like $3.99

    I've tried fleece from both Lens Mills and fabric land but I found Joann's is such a nicer quality and there is a much larger selection. Plus if I buy fleece from Joann's during one of their big sales it works out to be cheaper than buying it in store locally.

    I get fleece blankets from Ikea ocassionally as well, they have them in red, white, purple and blue. They are like 5 dollars and a decent size and quality.

    I completely love the Ikea fleece blankets. Super affordable at $5 as Sallyvh mentioned. I haven't tried Joann's though. I always thought it was an American store and I'd have to drive over the border. I didn't know it was reasonable to ship up to Canada. I'll go check it out.
