    I am going to attempt to make the My Rose of Sharon (traditional with a twist) quilt designed by Bev Getschel that is on the December 2010 cover of Quilter's World magazine. I need 3/4 yards of 10 different white with black prints and 1 fat quarter each of 18 red fabrics. I live in a small town that does not have a LQS. There are only 2 other QS that I know of in a 25-30 mile range, however, they do not have a very large selection of fabrics. What would be the best on-line shop to order from? I am looking for one that will give me quality fabric at a fair price. Any help you can give me will be appreciated. I am sure several of you may be shop owners, however, I am to new to the board to know who you are. If you have a shop but do not sell on-line, have quality fabric and competative prices, please send me a PM and I will get back to you. Thanks. Betty

    I see you are in Texas. Send a PM to sak658. There is a shop in Texas with great fabrics at a great price. Not online, but she helped me by emailing photos and I ordered over the phone. I ordered Tuesday and got them today. They were perfect. I posted a picture in another thread.

    Betty, I have not purchased fabric from connecting threads but others on the board have, it seems as if they have been happy with it and it's priced reasonably. You can google it. Let me know if you have trouble with that, ok? Kathy

    Thank you for responding to my post. I have sent the PM to Shirley. Guess she is sleeping and will get back to me in the morning. Are you a night owl like me?

    Good luck from England. I'm always so jealous of the shops and prices in the US. I've found a place locally with some pretty fabrics but our prices are really high. Good luck with finding your fabric and hope you enjoy your project.

    I think connecting threads is the place. Their fabric is great, prices can't be beat and they have a wonderful selection. They have an online catalog, and once you order, you get their mail catalog every month which I can't wait to get. They also have great clearance sales

    Here's a place right in TX:

    http://www.stitchinpost.com/stitchinpost.html

    maybe they'd have something for you.

    There's also Marshall Dry Goods which is a good place to get fabric from.

    I'm sure there are lots of great online quilting sites, but one of my all time favorites is Connecting Threads. Their fabric is wonderful, the prices are great, they ship quickly and are lovely to deal with. And no, I'm not affiliated with them! :mrgreen: I just love to share when I find such a great place to shop. :wink:

    Yes, I am usually on here until midnight or later CA time. Usually go to bed by 2am. She can send you some great pictures of the shelves.

    Nancy, thank you for letting me know about Shirley and Dovie. I sent Shirley a PM last night and she gave me the phone number for Dovie's shop. I placed a large order this morning and can hardley wait for my new stash to arrive. It's a bummer that the PO is closed on Monday for the MLK holiday, however, if I had job outside of the home, I would be doing the Happy dance. LOL Thanks again. Betty

    I was amazed at the extra service they give and how quick I got everything. The prices were excellent for Moda, which I love!!! Post pictures when you get it.

    Betty...Shirley was probably resting, they've been swamped this week.

    A very basic website was launched for the shop on Tuesday and will eventually become a full service online shop as time & resoures but for now it shows the $1 clearance & $2 calicos. Other materials modas, batiks, marbles, etc normally run $5-9 a yd but are all currently 1/2 off. They've got a great selection. Hopefully you'll see more online in upcoming weeks.

    www.quiltingandfabrics.com

    I'm sure Shirley will get back to you very soon.

    I went and checked it out. Simple but a great start! I knew she was going to have a website but thought it was months away! I actually found more to order, but need to wait until DH leaves for work! I'm calling my DSIL too!

    Thank you Annie for responding to my post. I would like to shop in some of your shops so I could see the difference between the fabrics and LQS in the two countries. Have a great evening.

    FavoriteFabrics.com is where I have ordered, and I have been happy with how quickly the fabrics came and the prices are competitive, too.
