    Shipping from USA to Canada (other countries) is a process...paperwork, more paperwork...list the item(s), list their individual value, weight, etc. Gift or purchase...if a purchase...there will be a duty tax for sure...and probably a broker fee. We used to ship parts to Canada all the time...paperwork was a hassle. At least for replacement parts, there was little duty if any. Also...I'd check into manufacturing supplies...may be a break there, but most larger stores won't ship out of country, too much paperwork.

    Try overstock.com or buy direct from the Pellon website also you can get bolts of batting at a good price from fabric.com. I think they have a sale on batting going on now. Also there is amazon.com

    Connecting Threads ships to Canada & shipping is fairly reasonable & usually pretty fast. I have ordered from them often & so far have not been hit by any extra charges when it crosses the border.

    Ouch! You need to stock up on batting when you are in Arizona. JoAnn has it on sale fairly often and you can get on their preferred customers list and get 40% off coupons to use when it isn't on sale.

    I just tried to order (thinking 30% was too good a deal to pass up) and not only did the discount not show up in my shopping cart, the shipping for a 30 yard roll of batting (cost $110) was $40. No thanks.

    For the record, I love online shopping. But sometimes, brick-and-mortars ARE actually a better deal. Just sayin.

    Tru4uca lives on Vancouver Island and the ferry trip alone is probably $120 return plus fuel. day trip wouldn't be worth it. Check the local fabric store--not fabricland. Their prices are way out of line so they can put it on sale and still make money.
