I've never bought fabric online and don't know where to look.

Can someone recommend places to look please?

Thanks

I have never personally purchased fabric online, but I know quite a few who buy from https://www.fabricdepot.com/]https://www.fabricdepot.com/[/url] I have visited the site and seen so many beautiful fabrics I would love to have, but haven't purchased any yet.

The two I've ordered from and had good luck are thousandsofbolts.com and fabric.com. They both were very prompt getting things out to me. There have been several folks on here who order from Hancocks of Paducah, but I've not tried there personally.

I have bought fabric several times from www.quiltinaday.com which is Eleanor burns site. She has quality fabric. Right now there is a sale going on for yardage at $3.00 a yd. Allso you can buy bundles of 1 yd cuts (10yds per bundle) of all reds, or all blues or all Christmas fabric etc. a lot of good choices. that is my choice. I have also bought from Connecting Threads, and Keepsake Quilting. Never been disappointed. If you are looking for novelity fabrics, go to www.ethelbird.com/ and I have dealt with them personnelly on the phone, they are very nice. So many choices, so little money LOL Marge

www.connectingthreads.com

You won't find their fabrics anywhere else and it is very high quality stuff for the price.

I love their selection.

I've had great luck with the following:

http://www.quiltshops.com/
Over 200 shops from all over the country. I've ordered from many of them and have never been disappointed in either quality or service. User-friendly search. You can often find the same fabric in several shops but at different prices, so you definitely should shop around. A good place to start a search for something you've run out of. Also great for novelty prints.

http://www.christianlanequilters.cit...ebackings.html
Nothing but extra wide.

http://www.sewbatik.com/
Nothing but batiks, including a decent selection of extra wide.

http://www.fabric.com/
Lots of different kinds of fabrics. Fairly good selection of extra wide. Good weekly sales.

http://www.thousandsofbolts.com/
Quickly becoming a favorite because of prices.
