    BenFranklin.com

    I was using a price comparison site called shopzilla and I came across a site called www.BenFranklin.com. It has a ton of great prices on sewing and quilting tools! If people are looking for a great bargain check out this site I was amazed!

    Thanks

    I have a BF near my house and I'm surprised they have good prices in their online store because "in" store they're pretty high. I'll go there if my LQS is closed (Sunday) and I "need" something.

    Also if you order fabric, be careful. Their quality is hit and miss. Some of their cottons are pretty poor quality.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    There was a BF near me up till about 13 yrs ago. It was way better than Wall-Mart. Family owned and quite elderly. They finally had to retire from working the business. Miss it alot. The building is now a CVS.

    I remember Ben Franklin from when I was a kid. The store, not the guy...It was my favorite craft place, I would ogle the embroidery floss. Back then I was cross stitching pillowcases with my grandmother....Miss it, none here.

    There is a store near me. Prices are really pretty good on everything but I'd still compare to other sites before buying. But if you're buying fabric, I agree with DogHouseMom. I'd go to a store to feel the fabric before buying; I just found a treasure trove there recently but not always.
