I'm currently making a simple "Millers daughter" quilt, or "stars through the window" depending on who you are...

and for the first time, my local stores did not have the material I wanted or anything like it. (Here's a photo, I just think the animals are perfect for the window parts...)
It is available from several Online places all for pretty much the same price.
I feel so silly having never ordered fabric on line before, but I was thinking you all may have some good recommendations for better stores, or places to avoid...feel free to share personal experiences.

Love Fabric.com- free shipping when you spend 35.00- very easy to do.
Also great sellers on Ebay. I do a lot of my online shopping there. I make sure they have a good feedback score and now have a few favorites I always go to.

I have had good experiences with fabric.com. Whatever site you may choose to use, be sure to first go to RetailMeNot, and see if there are any online coupon codes for the store. With a 30 second search, I saved $13.
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!

Fabric.com BY FAR the best!!!! They sent me a lot of Kona I ordered a couple of weeks ago. Two of the colors had a chunk missing from them about a foot total. I emailed them and the very next day they called to say that they were going to send me 1 1/2 of each color again!!! That my friends is GREAT customer service. I ordered more Kona that same day;) I needed it;)
