    Laura and the crew at Over The Rainbow http://www.overrainbow.com are the best. Here's an example of why I think so.

    I just ran out of a blender fabric on a new project. The blender was from an earlier project (more than 1 year ago) and I misjudged the amount I'd need.

    My dilema was, when I originally ordered this fabric, I didn't know what it was, I had asked the online shop to find me a blender that would work well with the other fabrics I had ordered. So there was no document that listed what it was, they just added the amount I requested to my order and adjusted my bill.

    So, I emailed the owner of the the online shop I originally purchased it from to see if they may have added which fabric it was to their records - unfortunately they didn't. However, the owner asked that I send a tiny snippet and they would find a match.

    I sent a small sample asking that they only find close, a perfect match not necessary.

    Guess what? They found the actual fabric, put together an order and mailed it out right away.
    They are still my favorite online shop!!

    Not finding the Brick Sewing Room had me stumped, so I did an ebay search and found the following: When I typed bricksewingroom (as I had done in the past) nothing came up; but when I typed in Brick Sewing Room (with spaces between words) I found it. It seems like every time I go on ebay their format is a bit different.

    Anyway, thanks to everyone for all the other fabric sites!!

    I am wary about buying fabric online as I tried it once and the colors turned out to be a lot duller than what was shown in the ad. I don't know if others have had this experience

    Just recieved my large order of fabric from Quilt in a Day.
    Spent 150 dollars on 3.75 a yard material. All of it is first class name brand fabric. All nice prints and useable, nothing that wasnt what I expected.
    The sale ended yesterday. This is the sale I save up for every year.
