    Question New to site and looking for Info

    I'm a recently new to quilting and love it. Sometimes my frustration is running out of a fabric and not being able to find anymore. I was hoping this forum would be a good resource to possibly find direction to try and locate that last yard of just the right fabric. If anyone can help I would always be happy to help in anyother way.

    Welcome from Minnesota.

    There is a wealth of info available here -


    A couple of suggestions for your fabric search:

    Post a request in the "in search of" section of this board

    Post a request on this site:

    www.missingfabrics.com

    There are other sites, but those two are my favorites.

    Hi and Welcome to the Board!
    you can always put the fabric name into Google and you night find it there. I've had luck doing that and also on e-bay.

    Welcome from NY!

    If you're looking for a specific fabric, the folks here are usually very good at helping you find it. Especially if you can post a picture of it!

    And if it's anything that I've ever carried in my store, if I'm sold out I can still provide the pattern number, and that's really useful for locating it online easily.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Most new fabric lines are available for a limited time now. Sometimes a fabric can be found by posting a picture of what you are looking for on here. Good luck.

    Welcome to the board.Waving hello from Paducah, KY. Hope you enjoy your time here. It's helpful to make sure you keep the info from the salvedge edge of your fabric. It makes locating more a bit easier. I've also been able to google the designer, manufacturer and fabric name and can sometimes pull who may have some of it.
