Where to get embroidery supplies in downtown Toronto?

I've taken up embroidery -- not just cross-stitch, but all the other stitches too, so i'm looking for more than just cross-stitch kits. Downtown has a great fabric and notions district along Queen at Spadina, but I'm not sure where to go to get embroidery floss and supplies. I'd like some nice hoops and frames, fancy floss, needles, aida cloth and osnaburg. Also, some nice transfer pens and printable iron-ons. It seems like Michaels and such dedicated crafting stores are located way out in the 'burbs, and I don't have a car. Also -- where can I get plain white tea towels and napkins for embroidering, or should I sew them myself?
Where can I go to find these things? The closer to downtown, the better!
