I am thinking of purchasing a dress form and am looking for recommendations, especially for one that can be readily acquired by someone in Canada, where it seems the options are somewhat limited unless you want to pay exorbitant international shipping costs. Is there a Canadian online source or an actual store in southern Ontario/Hamilton/Toronto with good forms for sale? I've seen the Singer one at my local Fabricland and looks flimsy and annoying. Looking for something a bit better than that.

I have the one they sell at the Guelph Fabricland- it's the red one. It's okay but not much like me. BTW, it's fairly sturdy and pinnable.

I think King Textiles in Toronto by Queen and Spadina carries some good dress forms. You should call them and ask though, to make sure!

Thank you for the info on Cleaners Supply.

I have been looking for a Uniquely You in Canada for a while and I found it in BC but it cost $125 more and was told I would have had to pay shipping on a large item from BC to Quebec.

The form at Cleaning Supply is less expensive and the shipping is FREE!!

Note: when you go to the website and type in dress forms only PGM comes up. You have to type in Uniquely You.

Thanks for these suggestions. I will check out King Textiles on a lunch break some day (I work in Toronto) and also the Cleaner's Supply website.

That Cleaner's Supply website is pretty cool! If you click on "Tailoring" in the lefthand menu, you get a page with a whole bunch of links to sewing supplies. The first link in the right column is "dress forms". Click on that and you find they sell four brands: PMG, Twinfit, Dritz and Uniquely You. They have a full range of sizes available for each one. Now I just have to decide which one!
