I'm on the other side of Canada with the same problem! My stores don't even
admit that linen exists. I ask for it and they point me to a "linen look"
rack. Umm, not quite what I was looking for, thanks.
So I shop on line and thank the gods that I live close to the border and
have access to a US postal box (saves big time on postage!)
The internet is a wonderful thing for a fabri-holic with specific tastes!
