I've used J&O Fabrics before & never had any trouble. Everything came quickly & accurately.

You didn't get dinged with duty? I'm always afraid to order from the US, figuring the border charges will be astronomical.

I order from the US all the time and am always pleased with the product and the service. Krista - I can't say that there would never be a time that CBSA might open a parcel of fabric and charge duty...but they would have to find a selvage that says it is made in a country with which we do not have a trade agreement...and be in a nasty mood that day! At this point cotton fabrics are presumed to be made in the USA...and Canada does not have a cotton industry.
