I almost forgot, I have a friend in Vancouver who comes down often
and brings Sari's. The most affordable are usually poly blends, very
rich in color w/ gold threading and start around $40. She is coming
down this Sunday so let me know asap if you are interested and I can
email her to bring a few down.

: : I wanted to bring the discussion of Sari's up here so it didn't
: : lost :D
: :
: : Anyhow, on the site that was posted below, it says that a sari is
: : 1/2 meters of fabric? As in like 16+ feet long??? I imagine
: : the 'shorter' ones are for smaller people and longer ones for any
: : size?
: Sari sizes and manner of draping vary from region to region,
: according to the research I have found.
: The smallest length is 4 yrds and is used by some 'tribes', but
: usually 2 of the 4 yrd sari's at a time.
: 5-6 yrds is the most used, and it can be draped in many different
: ways. If we ever get to spend some time together, I can show you
: 4 different ways that I drape my own sari's.
: Then you have some tribes that use a 9yrd sari...yes 27 FEET OF
: FABRIC!!! I do have one sari that is 9yrds, and I gather they are
: hard to find. The 9yrd'ers have a certain way to drape them and I
: cannot for the life of me figure it out!
: Sounds like we really need to have a coffee date!
: Btw, I am going to a Diwali performance on Saturday down in
: you have any interest in going with? It's a 5 hour
: thing in N. Seattle. Give me a call if you do.
