Does anyone know where to buy current Simplicity patterns online at a reasonable price? Sale prices and cheap shipping would be a bonus. I am in Canada.
Already looked at simplicity.com , patternreview.com , sewingpatterns.com and prowl ebay, etsy, ecrater and artfire.
I do have a fabricland in town but they have very few pattern sales.

Perhaps get on the Simplicity e-list to get news of sales.

I do get the simplicity emails. The sales are fine, it's the shipping that makes it not an option. Simplicity uses a third party shipper for international shipping and shipping for 1 pattern to Canada is over $17.

So far ebay and etsy are the best for cheap shipping.

Any other suggestions?

How's your Amazon shipping cost to Canada? They have patterns! I just joined their "Prime" service ($80/year) and now I'm getting free shipping on most of the things I buy, and they have 2-day delivery. I ended up spending more than $100 in shipping charges last year, so I think this will save me money in the long run... except that it's so easy to order and now i get things so quickly, I'm ordering stuff more!

Fabric.com and Vogue Fabrics sell through Amazon, too.

Not sure if this is available in Canada - I'm in the U.S.

Thanks quathy for the Amazon tip. Most of the stores on Amazon.com won't ship out of the US but I did find one that would and they had the patterns I am looking for. It's another option other than ebay and etsy.

I suggest you also check the classifieds here, in case someone is selling something you want (waves gleefully).
