Fabric Fancy's favorites:
my first go to shop for most recently released fabric is fabric.com
they always have 15% off coupon codes, just do a google search and you'll find them and shipping is free at $35 instead of $50. they also have a rewards program and give you gift certs based on how much you've spent over time.
then the next place i shop at often is Thousands of Bolts - they do not have free shipping but fabric is around $4.50 a yard and batiks are $5.95
