    I live in the UK and now and again moan about the fabric prices (15 doll a yard) and I dont have any shops within a hundred miles that do really nice stuff.
    Anyway ,,,,I had a poker win and thought I would bite the bullet and order from the US .I was absolutely amazed when fabric I had ordered on a sunday was delivered across the pond on the following thursday, lovely quality and even with shipping charges and a charge at the door for english taxes it still worked out at less than half price !!I ordered from two different sites , and am waiting on the second delivery , its like Xmas :)Just thought i would share, am doing the happy dance as i type:)

    Glad to hear it-and with the U.S.$ being so low, your exchange rate really worked in your favor! Which sites did you order from so other overseas quilters might benefit? I know when I lived in Vanuatu full-time, many U.S. shops wouldn't ship overseas. Also, can you post pics of your fabs??

    Good for you. I'm really glad the quality of the fabric is what you expected.

    I have friends in Wales UK, and I will send her ''care packages'' of fabric because of the high prices of fabric. She isn't choosey and so far, loves what I send her!! Sometimes she will ask for a special style or color and I do my best to find it for her....fun for both of us!

    I'm always surprised at how fast mail goes from UK to here, etc.
