    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.

    www.mybluebamboo.com
    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.

    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/

    I think a lot of us have found good online shops by doing the fabshophop and signing up for emails at the various stops.

    I like shops mentioned. Aunt Bea's is especially nice, as is Fabric.com. They have some terrific sales!

    I don't think anyone mentioned Keepsake Quilting yet, so I will add them to the list. And Nixie Chicks.
