    I noticed that some online fabric offer free shipping, which is good if you live hours away from the nearest fabric store. Is there any suggestions to which is tried and trusted.

    I buy online a lot even with 7 fabric stores here in town. I don't have any favorites with free shipping. Sometimes they offer discounted shipping. Was there some store you were interested in?

    Connecting Threads offers free shipping (in the US) for orders over $50 (at least, the do right now). I'm in Canada, so no free shipping for me :( But I just received my first order from them today and am very pleased with the fabric quality and will definitely order from them again. Even paying shipping, it's cheaper for me to order from them than to shop locally for the quality of fabric (which is kind of sad).

    I love to go to Equilter.com. I like to see the new arrivals. Equilter has them long before our local fabric stores. They are very prompt on shipping.

    Fabric.com has free shipping with a $35 order, and they have great sales too.

    Hancock of Paducah is one I order from and batting from Joann. I also buy lots off Ebay lately both used and new fabric and from small quilt stores or online quilt stores. The only one I have had problems with is Keepsake quilting. Yardage that was short an inch and FQ that where cut really weird and small.

    I recently ordered from Rocking Chair Quilts. They offer free shipping over $30. They called me the same day I placed the order to confirm some information, and sent out the package Priorty Mail. Good customer service.

    Decent sales as well.

    I am basically housebound, so I do 99% of my fabric shopping on line. So far I haven't had any trouble with anyone I've ordered from. Some are slower than others, but all the fabric I've purchased as been very nice. Lots are folder to look pretty, lots are in plastic bags, several have a sticker as to what fabric you bought. I've gotten lots of free shipping, and if I didn't the prices of the fabric made up for it. I've ordered from all the stores listed on this thread as well as most on the thread JenniePenny put on here.
