    Love your fabric. I have ordered from several online quilt stores. I have been very pleased with all of my orders. They seem to really want to please you. I was searching for some train material and I ordered from a bunch of different people. All of them were great.

    I ordered fabric online for the first time this spring.
    I ordered from Ericas, they have a 800 number you can call.
    I don't feel comfortable giving out my credit card numer.
    The fabric I ordered was quilt store quality, they shipped in a flat
    box to keep postage down. I received the fabric promptly.
    I like to promote my LQS but one has gone out of business and with the cost of gas was cheaper paying postage than driving.

    I have a LQS that sells all fabric for $6.99 even batiks. When I shop online I always go to Fabric shack, thousands of bolts, Crows nest on ebay, whittles, those are my go to's. I agree that Fabric.com has wonderful service, but their prices have really gotten high, I can almost always find what I want at a better price.

    I'm not real fond of giving out my CC #, so I try to use PayPal when I can.

    Oh, my - the list under my favorites tab is sooooo extensive! I've ordered from just about all that others have mentioned and never been displeased. I've found many using the quiltshops.com search that someone already posted. Can add just a few more from my huge list:

    Do you have a name for your fabric? I'd like to go to Quiltshops.com and see who carries it.

    Thanks!

    the right store will be the one that actually has this fabric...

    after that, it will be the one that fabrics in your price range..

    asking about the "BEST" online stores is like asking which is the best iron, sewing machines, needles, etc...EVERY reply will based upon the experience of the person giving you the reply! Some LOVE the low end sites like fabric.com, connecting threads, joanns, etc and some LOVE the higher end shops like Hancocks of Paducah, Equilter, etc..

    only YOU can know which is right/BEST for you!

    Having said that, I have had to shop online for many years...
    When I have a special fabric I NEED to find, I always start at quiltshops.com...type in the info from the selvage edge of the fabric I am searching out, and then view the shops that have it...
    IF I can not find it there, I go shop by shop starting with stitch-n-frame.net, fabricshack.com, bestkeptsecret.com!

    Good luck!

    Not sure where in Missouri you live, but I really liked the quilt shop in Hannibal, MO. We visit there a couple times a year and I always make sure I get to stop by.

    WebFabrics - www.webfabrics.net. Always really friendly and helpful,carry a great range of basic and blender fabrics,nicely designed website. Packages sometimes reach me in the UK within 3 or 4 days! The only problem I have now is that US postage rates seem to have increased, so the exchange rate has to be favourable to make it worth my while buying from the States now.

    Most of the fabric stores online great and their service is great.

    I know why you are asking, after doing a fair amount of ordering, these are the questions I ask:
    -- what is the quality of the fabric I receive
    -- how quickly do they process my order
    -- do I get a reasonably prompt email confirmation
    -- do I get my order in a reasonable amount of time

    I made a substantial order from one online company, nothing was listed as being on backorder, and it took a month to get. I was never notified about when the order was shipped, I was charged a lot for shipping. When I called to check on my order because I did not get a reply to my email, no one could tell me what happened to my order. I have never gone back.

    If I know the name of fabric and the manufacturer I look on QuiltShop.com. They search 200 fabric shops all at once. I have had excellant service whenever I have bought fabric from one of their shops.

    I also use Piecework fabrics. They have great sales.

    I use eQuilter when I am looking for a specific fabric. They seem to have most of what I am looking for :thumbup:

    Oh, this tread is dangerous!! Have only been to a few of the sites, guess I have more to check out. I ordered the other morning fabric from Equilters-love the color matching option that equilters has. I've been happy with equilters, thousandsofbolts, and a couple of others,but can't remember the names.
    Love that fabric, is it Wecker-frisch?

    Nope, it's by StellaBlue. And unfortunately I can't tell you anything more about that designer! I googled StellaBlue and came up with a restaurant, and a jewelry designer, but not an artist nor any other info regarding fabrics except for shops that carry lines by StellaBlue.

    The only problem with online shopping is that it can become addictive. No more waiting for poor service. Makes me wish to never step into another crumby service Joannes again!
    I agree with you on this oneabout being addictive and the J stores.

    I found a shop called CasaintheWoods on ebay. I have been paying $4.95/yd, 2.35 for 1/2 yd and 1.35 for a fq. They are very helpful and congenial. Fabric is wonderful and they ship immediately. They always answer my emails within 5-10 minutes. I love them!
