G&S Dye 

250 Dundas St. W., Unit #8, Toronto, Ontario M5T 2Z5
wwwgsdye.com or 1-800-596-0550

G&S has an online catalogue and orders are shipped quickly. Do yourself a favour and ask for fabric samples.

If you are in TO, their brick and mortar store is a great little spot packed to the gunnels with products for dyeing, painting, screening, batiking, and marbling and they offer all kinds of assistance including instructional sheets both in store and online.

Carry a wide range of PFD fabric, Pebeo setacolor paints, MX reactive dyes, silk screening fabrics, pre wrapped silk screens (which are soooo nice in my opinion), and dyeing chemicals.

Great customer service.

And they also offer workshops if you are in the area.
