    A question for the Australians who shop on-line from overseas companies.

    Which companies have you found to be the best with regard to quality of fabric, price, postage rates and service.

    Hi Deecee, I have purchased from http://www.whittlesfabrics.com/ The quality was fantastic and I had my fabric in 1 week, they have great prices too.
    Also http://www.wishuponaquilt.com/ great fabric and service also only took 8 days to get my fabric.
    And http://www.hancocks-paducah.com/ I have always got great service from them usually only takes 1 week to 10 days to get my fabrics, (all quality fabrics) my last order arrived in 6 days. If you sign up for their newletter they let you know from time to time that they have free shipping which can include up to 2 battings if you spend over $100US I got 2 king sized battings, a ruler, thread and around 16 yards of fabric and a new olfa cutter for around $200, you cant beat that. PM me if you want more info.

    Thanks for the info Woody. Will check these sites out.

    I sometimes get excited looking at a site, then realise they don't ship international. Thought it might be easier to ask those who have more experience in o/s purchasing than my few transactions.

    Ive shopped at www.fabric.com which are good, but dont fill up the postage satchels.

    Also www.cottonloft.com are FABULOUS! such a great range and so very cheap. And the quality is really good too.

    Also US ebay are great for fabric too. there is one person I buy from all teh time called casainthewoods. Not affiliated, just a happy customer.

    Hi Deecee,

    Aside from the ones already mentioned I've bought from J & O Fabrics. Bought giraffe print and jellybean fabric, just love both and top quality.
    Also have bought from several ladies on this forum and found the fabric top quality.

    Hi Deecee,

    I have purchased fabric from Fat Quarter Shop, Shabby Fabrics and Loralie Designs. Fabric quality, prices and service have all been good.
