    Best place to buy fabric by the bolt

    Hey does anyone know a good place to get inexpensive fabric by the bolt? Our VBS kids this year are making quilt blocks for all branches of the military, and then a local quilting guild is going to put them into quilts to send out to local guys serving. Where can I get a good deal?

    Do you need new fabric off the bolt?

    Members of the same Guild, other quilters/sewers and even LQS' and other stores that sell fabric, may be quite willing to donate from their stashes because of the VBS efforts for military quilts.

    I don't know for sure honestly. I have to wait until the guild meets on the 6th to see what they need/ what they are willing to donate. Right now I am just price checking!

    I don't know about bolts of fabric, but you can look at Goodwill for good quality clothes that are on clearance for pretty cheap, and cut them apart for fabric pieces. Men's long sleeve shirts in large sizes are especially good for large amounts of fabric!

    Try Fabric 4 less , you do have to have an account to see prices but you can find many many of the bolts for between $3.50 per yard and $4.50 .. top manufactures , some are less. Lots of blenders for very little $$$. They charge only the actual shipping costs.

    We buy most of our fabric from http://www.fousttextiles.com/ ... it is local to me! You can use the church's tax id
    They likely have one!

    Good luck! AND I buy from THEM...I am with a different company!

    Try http://www.curtainsmadesimple.co.uk/. The price are for cut lengths but you can ask for discount if you buy a whole roll. On some fabrics you will get up to 50% off.

    I've never bought wholesale or by the bolt from Marshalls, but have bought lots of quilting fabric and their customer service is outstanding and the fabric is great. Recently I ordered several yards of fabric to be shipped to me in KY, got the mailing confirmation that it was sent here, then a few days later got a call from my FL neighbor that I had a package from Marshalls lying in front of the door down there! I called Marshalls, explained what happened and they sent a duplicate order to me here in KY, no charge. Cannot beat that and heaven knows I'll use it!
