Hi, I live in Gatineau, Québec and work in Ottawa, Ontario. I've got one leg in each province!
I have been known to search for yarn over the entire National Capital region (56 km from one end to the other)! What is available in Qc is not necessarily easy to find in Ontario and vice versa. I will be going to Ottawa's Michaels tomorrow to Check out this deal on the Waverly. Only 1 of our local Zellers stores has it (but not all the colours) and the Walmarts not at all (although they have other Bernat). I'm so glad I ordered mine and it only took a week. What makes me a little sad though is that a Canadian based product (label says packaged in Canada and HQ address is in Ontario) is not as easily available, especially in the nation's capital, and not even available online without having to go through the United States!
