www.grubersquiltshop.com - they don't have much online at all, but if you know what you are looking for, you can call them and they will send it to you

those are the one's at use regularly! Enjoy "window" shopping!

Since I'm not around my cheap top quality shops anymore, I visit the local shops to check out their selection to see it up close then I check my bargain stores websites to see if I can get it from there. Also if I find something online I will check at the local shops just to see it.

I've ordered online many times but occasionally a piece comes that looked better online than up close.

I've ordered from www.thousandsofbolts.com

Loved their fabric but only 1 problem (and I guess this is always when you don't have the material on hand) and that's if you're buying and trying to match it doesn't work too well.

Got a beautiful red piece when I wanted a beautiful burgundy piece. :cry:

I buy from most of those sites. Have found that fabric depot and quilt in a day ship the fastest. Connecting threads is very slow. fabric depot even calls you if one of the items is out of stock to find out if you want to ship a partial order or wait for the item to come in.

I have bought a lot of fabric online (sigh) :wink: I think the stores I have used are already listed above...but I will say that I haven't had any problems with any of the stores listed on www.fabshophop.com.
Good luck!! :D

WOW, I just place an order with Lisa's In Stitches on Friday morniing and received the package today. I did call the order in instead of doing it online. Although I do live in Oregon, those of you in other states, we have no sales tax. http://www.lisasstitches.com/
