    great Batik fabric prices

    I am planning my first order here...anyone shopped at BaliBatiks before? The fabrics look great, prices are excellent and shipping is free. They also have backing for $9.99. They have great variations in color of the solids that would be perfect for a french braid or bargello quilt.

    The batiks are beautiful! Be careful, the prices are for 1/2 yard.

    Just checked thier collection looks fantastic, the prints look good, quite interested in the 108" backing fabric very useful, 205 thread count

    I wondered if the weight is suitable for other uses. Will try and get a sample.

    Do they offer a sample service..? can’t seem to see the option on their website.

    Yes, I am aware it's 1/2 yd pricing...many places are doing that now. Around here, batiks are in the $12-14/yd range, so $4.25 half yd is pretty good. The best prices are on the pre-cuts. The 40 pc strip sets are only $21.99 which is less than 1/2 the price locally.

    I'd say that is a very good half yard price.

    I noticed that. I have seen a lot of fabric shops online who charge in half yard increments.

    FABULOUS pricing. I registered with them. their pricing for their 2 1/2" strips is phenomenal. You can't buy them at that price anywhere AND free shipping. I'm going to visit them often.
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    20 different fabrics -- 2 of each = 40 pieces. I cut my own, so this is still pricey to me, but compared to Moda prices, they are cheap.
    The yardage is not that much less than what I can get locally, but the cuts are less.

    Thank you for sharing, I love batiks and I think these prices are great, even for 1/2 yard cuts!
