    Question source for zippers?

    I'm wanting to make some bigger/better bags with zippers and pockets. But I'm finding zippers are expensive. Anyone know of a reliable source for bulk zippers in multiple sizes?

    Try http://www.zipperstop.com/ . I bought some separating zippers from them off Amazon and was able to get exactly the length I wanted for creating zippered leaders for my longarm frame. Aside from their website and Amazon, they also sell on eBay.

    Edit: I will say that the choices on their website are overwhelming. I'm glad I didn't have to wade through all of those options to find the zippers for my quilting leaders!

    I got a whole bunch of zippers, different colors and sizes at Joann's in the clearance section.

    Try zipit. Haven't used it, but am thinking of getting some zips for snap bags.

    I second Zipperstop. I have ordered from them once and my sister several times. I ordered from their website or you can call with questions and to order, they are very helpful. I ordered a lot of 100-7" nylon zippers for tissue cases. The prices are very reasonable but I do think shipping is a little expensive. I think it was $8+ on a $20 something order. Zippers came out to be $.35 with shipping added to the cost.
