    I've purchased many times from crowsnestquiltingfabrics on ebay and have always been extremely pleased.

    Ebay's always a good (expensive, sometimes) experience for me. Have gotten some really nice fabric.

    my only complaint is be sure to ask if from a smoker's home if you are allergic :)
    I have loved all the fabric I have gotten off Ebay.

    Two of my favorite eBay Stores are:

    'Quilt Unique Fabrics & Gifts' - GREAT 108" backing fabric, superb customer service

    'philly fabrics' - GREAT batiks for $4 yd, very fast service

    i just purchased 100 5" charms squares at a great price. I am hoping i will like the quality as it is a mix of fabrics the woman has picked up over the years. I have bought other things from ebay with pretty good luck.

    sure is easier to pay someone else to cut my squares for me, since I have to do it by hand or rotary cutter. I know they are more exact than what I can do if they are done on proper cutter. Ive bought several charm squares this way.

    Some people who do not sew themselves will call any fabric "cotton", just as many non-knitters call all yarn "wool"... Buyer needs to ask a lot of questions.

    Can you give her shop name?

    I have bought many times-----the only problem I have ever had was one pack of precut squares were really smokey smelling----now I make sure it says smoke free home.

    I just received many yards from four different sellers. Two pieces I was not happy with. One, from the photo, looked just like the fabric I was searching for. I was so excited I bought three yards. But the colors were much more harsh than the piece I have, plus the quality was low low low. Bummer. The other, from a different seller, a hand dyed, looked to be brown and blue in the photo, but it's really brown and purple. Yuck.

    The other trouble I had, completely MY fault, was one fabric looked great for what I wanted it for, but somehow I bought it twice--from two different sellers. It was called something different at each place. It's not a piece I want that much of.

    I always use "Buy it Now."

    So, I'll stick to the quilt shops and my favorite on-line store for awhile. :wink:

    Unless they sell with "Buy It Now", I'd rather shop on Etsy for good quilting fabrics. All that bidding and waiting drives me nuts, and then someone always outbids you in the end. I've never done well with auctions.

    I got DENIM when I thought I was getting quilting cotton--and got squares that were NOT square and different sizes, so beware!
    and bought 100% cotton poundage that was blend--made charity quilts out of the goofs, but frustrating.

    just as anything on ebay you have to check out the seller, I never buy from anyone with low feedback, I'm saving the names of the sellers mentioned here.
