    I finally got my catalog from Hancock's of Paducah (I had forgotten I had requested one from them!) I just quickly looked through it, but I noticed they have a large selection of watercolor/blender batiks. Which is awesome because I want to use watercolor batiks in my Zelda stained glass wall hangings and each of them have at least 10 different colors so having these fabrics in one place makes my job of finding fabrics for these big projects a little easier (not easy searching for fabrics on dial-up).

    Now I'm just wondering if anyone has bought anything from Hancock's of Paducah before and got some good things to say about it.

    Yes,yes, yes!! Super terrific, wonderful people, great merchandise, quick shipping, and all 'round best online fabric place I have ever dealt with. That's where your black came from...and gobs of other stuff, too. :oops:

    The only downside is the print catalog, like all print catalogs, can sometimes not acurately reproduce the fabric colors. I have found that if I compare the colors of what I want online, even if they are not exactly what the fabric truly is, they are all off by the same degree on my monitor. So if they look good together on screen, they will look good together in person, see what I mean? There is much more online than there is in the catalog (but it does take awhile to load their site on my dialup :evil: ).

    Happy hunting!

    Goddess, suggest you go online at hancock's of paducah - they have batiks on sale currently :D

    I only know this because when we got the NEW snailmail catalog, some fabrics were no longer there . . .so I checked the online sales items . . .I don't use batiks, but I did see they are on sale.

    By the way, great place to order from!

    I purchase fabric from them at least once a month and they are always timely and professional. My other go-to online companies are Shabby Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop.

    I have an order with them right now and should get it soon. They usually are very quick and get my orders correct.

    Okay... i have a question for everyone. You have all mentioned they are quick and timely.... what do you consider quick? Is it compared to other online fabric stores? I'm just asking b/c i ordered some fabric and a book two weeks ago from them and I just got it yesterday. Is that normal for fabric stores?
