Willowdale textiles for lining, suit fronts, interfacings shoulder pads, collar canvas etc. I usually email or fax and they call back to confirm before billing and shipping. They use canpar for shipping which is excellent. I haven't been there in person but colleagues have and it is useful as they don't really have a website showing options available.

Cleaners Supply for thread, zippers, etc. Just google them. They will send a catalogue and there is much more online.

JN Harper in Montreal for bolts of hymo, interfacings etc

http://www.hersh-rsd.com/ I have had some nice linings for projects from here.

Have to get to work, if I think of some more later I will post.

I purchased a very good quality domette--lamb's wool--from a fur supply co. in Montreal. Sorry I don't remember the name.

How about any sources for silk buttonhole threads? I've been ordering from Tristan Threads, but their delivery is usually slow...
