Have any of you ever bought fabric on Ebay. I have bought three things within the last week and so far they are great. I actually got them very quickly and the price was so good. One even had free shipping!

Ebay has some wonderful fabric sellers.

You do have to be careful who you buy from on eBay, and be sure that the fabric you are buying is good quality. When I started quilting I bought just any old fabric that said "cotton" and got some junk. I learned. Be sure it says the manufacturer and you are familiar with their fabric. You really can get some good deals, but always check the feedback indicator for the seller BEFORE you buy!!

I've bought quite a bit on Ebay and have had good luck. That includes machine feet, bobbins, thread and fabric. Only was disappointed once and that was on Teaching Piano books!

It's a 'learn as you go' experience. I've purchased some great fabrics at good prices with good customer service. I also purchased some not so good fabric (some poly) before I learned to read more carefully. All 'charms' are not Moda, RJR, etc and all 'quilting' fabric is not quality. If I wanted more, ebay would be a possibility now that I know what to look for.

I have been very lucky on Ebay also. I have gotten some gorgeous fabrics at great prices. Like the others have said, pay attention to feedback--read it also. And know who makes the fabric you are buying.

If you use the search feature or just browse through the subjects in Main you will see this discussed numerous times here. One I believe in the last week.

That said, there are fabulous Ebay sellers with wonderful fabrics. You just have to check to see if they are top rated sellers, check their feedback, shipping, etc., know your fabric prices for specific manufacturers and have fun shopping. You can find really great deals.
