I can now not shop at Jo-Ann Fabrics right from here, coz Jo- Ann now ships to Canada!

How long has this been going on and am I the only Canadian that didn't already know this?!

Actually they have some good bits and pieces, and actually I did venture into Jo-Ann Fabrics now and then, mostly for the pattern sales.

Anyhoo if by chance I am not the last Canadian to learn this, Jo-Ann Fabris now ships to Canada.

I suspect it may be not having French on the labels?

Hum, I wonder why they would ... They are not a Quebec based company, so they can use the language they want.

Is it only Canadian mfgers that have to use both languages on everything? I remember yonks ago when I lived in Winnipeg something or other about certain items not being allowed in without having both languages.

Otherwise, I haven't the foggiest notion why Jo-Ann's will ship to all but Quebec.

Joann is a local company for me. As I've said before, I used to shop with my mom at the store where the original founder worked. Missed those days when they carried lovely stuff! Anyway, this was just in our paper this week that they were now shipping to Canada. Also planning on opening more stores, but smaller than their super stores.

I am not sure they ship everything. I was looking at some fabric and on the e-swatches I was looking at it said ships only to the USA.

Any Canucks out there know if Joanne's ship fabric too and they just need to update their website?

As for the Quebec thing, I am no expert but it seems to me there is some law that says goods cannot be imported to Quebec unless they have French on the packaging.
