fabric shop in or around metrotown

Friends, Romans and Vancouverites:

Is there a fabric shop near or around MetroTown? I need to get about 4 yards of purple cotton fabric, some gold ribbon and leaves. There's a toga party happenin', and as well as drinking like an Italian (Sambuca!), I need to dress the part.

You could try using a sheet. That's what I did for one toga party.

a bedsheet, I mean

Bedsheets are for emergencies!

Toga sheets are longer than it is wide, that is what facilitates easy draping.

Isn't Sambuca Greek, not italian?

Granted, ancient Greece, ancient Rome, same diff really.
But I'm pretty sure that Sambuca is Greek.

i believe you're thinking of ouzo.
Aug. 8th, 2008 09:49 pm (UTC)
Now that you say, yeah, that's what I'm talking about.

I don't drink either, because they're not my thing.
I am also not Greek or Italian.
