    I have to admit, I do about 98% on line. I love my quilt stores we have in town, but they are now so expensive, even with shipping I can get it for less. Many times I have found web sites that give you free shipping with a $30 -$50 order. Needless to say, I have no problem spending $30's or more.
    It is a shame to see our stores leaving. That has been half the fun, feeling and inventing quilts in your mind as you buy the fabric. :-(

    I have done both on-line and LQS . I am lucky that I have several options here in town :lol: The down side to on-line you don't get to see or feel the fabric :cry:

    So sorry you are losing all your local options

    No options for me local either. I have to drive over an hour to the nearest place to buy fabric. I prefer online shopping.

Some of the same fabrics can be found on line at a more reasonable place. Maybe we should all pool our money and get a round-trip ticket for Asia since most of the bolts have those countries listed as place manufactured. I'd LOVE to find a place that sells US made only but at this that doesn't seem very likely.
    I believe Connecting Threads fabric is made in the USA

    If you join the FabShopHop and visit all 170 + stores on line you will then find a feast of fabric. All kinds and all prices. I won a 10 dollar gift certificate for shopping at a store.
