I shop all over and on the internet too. For me it's very convenient, as I live 55 miles from a town where there are quilt stores, Joann, Hancock, etc. The thing I don't like about Joann's is that the price of their fabric has really gone up but don't feel the quality has. Also this is not all fabric either so a person, to me, has to shop by feeling. Have not gone wrong with buying from Connecting Threads for their clearance at under $3.00 a yard. Now trying 1000 bolts of fabric.
