    Elliot,
    Check out pittsburgpam's posting called,
    Mocha Meringue. She buys fabric from that
    site at $3.50 a yard & it's beautiful. I love
    to look at their fabric. Good Luck.
    :D :D :D

    I have recently bought from Thousands of Bolts:

    http://www.thousandsofbolts.com/

    the prices are pretty good (average of $5 or $6 per yard, a lot of fabrics at $4 per yard too) and I was happy with the fabric I received.

    Cheers,
    Jan

    another vote for thousands of bolts

    hands down they are my favorite online site, they win in price, quality, shipping, and customer service - they are the only online site that gets high marks in all those categories from me.

    I just received my first order from Marshall Dry Goods and was very pleased. I got batiks for $4.99/yd. The shipping is a little high, but if you order enough to justify the shipping, it can truly be a great deal. Even with shipping, the batiks were a little over $6/yd. The same ones are in my LQS for $10. I still buy from my LQS, but in this economy, I must admit I do shop for bargains when I need to save a bit. I ordered Sunday/received Friday.

    I would have to agree with the above sites, too! :wink:

    Check our Links and Resources section. There are sites listed there with sales, and often members here will let us know if they are pleased with their purchases in the past, as well as shipping prices, too :D

    My favorite is Whittles, they also give you a free fat quarter!
    I've also ordered from Thousands of Bolts, & Connecting Threads.
    All three do a very fast ship, and I've never had a single problem!
    :D

    all of the above! I love them all, I don't know if I could pick one over another.

    However- connecting threads just sent me an email that as of 6/9/09 all their fabric is USA made! So, it just bumped up to the top of the line.

    but you will not be disappointed in any of the sites listed.

    Okay, yet one more vote for Thousand of Bolts. Soooo many fabrics to choose from and really great prices. Whittle's has really low prices, too, and I hear they are good, but I haven't bought from them yet. (It's just so darned hard to pace myself!!!!)

    I've had good experience with Keepsake Quilting, Clotilde, Connecting Threads, JoAnns. Everything arrived in great shape and shipping was easy to track on my computer.

    Threads like this is why I have quickly fallen in love with this site! :D

    In less then 24 hours I have now discovered several great fabric on line sites with unbeatable prices!

    I have used cottonconnection.com. The prices are about the same as your LQS, around $9 per yard. Very large selection of quality fabrics and they ship very quickly.

    I've used all of the above except for Whittles and Thousands of Bolts.
    I've also used Felinedrive.com (great cat themed fabric) and Nixiechicks.com. Both are quick delivery even if I an stuck on a pebble.

    And YOU Tlrnhi have my undying gratitude for posting that link to feline drive a few days ago! I am always on the lookout for cat fabrics, cat blocks, cat patterns. I am cat crazy!! :mrgreen: Once I figure out how to use the digital camera consistently you will see.

    Thanks!!

    I have purchased fromKeepsake Quilting also. My favorite place for price and quality together is an ebay store thebricksewingroom. All their pictures have a penny placed on them so you can see the scale of the print, they have coordinated print groupings, they answer email questions promptly, they ship up to (I think) 27 yards of fabric for the same price as less than that. I have purchased well over a hundred yards from them over the years and have NEVER been disappointed.
