    I think I am going to have to go to my LQS to get my fabric, it is too hard to just put items in your cart and not be able to see them together to know if they match properly. I need 6 shades of 3 different colors. is there a website that is easier or a trick that I am missing? =/

    WOOOHOOOO I did a search for where ppl buy fabric and I found

    http://www.craftconn.com/Main.asp?Ta...ryDiscountId=1

    And it is THE BEST place to find fabrics for bargello IMHO. They have tons of swatches and you can search by color. I am SO excited. :) Thanks ghostrider! :D

    I can't buy fabric on the internet - I have to see it and feel it. Colors can vary with lighting ... I would go to a LQS if you want to be sure you are going to love your choices. Good Luck!

    Some of the online companies have a "design board" in the shopping cart where you can see the swatches together, rearrange, etc. E-quilter is one.

    What I often do is right click on the swatch (enlarge first if you can), save it on your desktop. I copy & paste all into PowerPoint and look at them together. That way, I can enlarge further, rearrange, add/delete until I find what I want.
