    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.
    I buy from several all the time. Great prices, low ship!

    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.

    I've had good experiences buying from popular sellers on ebay. Just make sure you see the manuf. or line of fabrics and don't buy odd lots ...

    I've had mixed results.

    If you're buying scraps or remnants - I have learned that seller's ideas are different about what "large" remnants or scraps are. I've had some that have truly been large, and others that have been strange sized cuts too small to do anything with.

    I have shopped eBay since I started this wonderful quilting hobby - and yes, I have been disappointed once or twice (after all, you just can't pet the fabric) but as a whole, 90% of my fabric has come from eBay venders.

    I make lots of Christian themed prayer quilts for charity, so I'm always crusing around eBay to find fabric with religious themes. There are a couple of OOPs that I'm always searching for and when I find them, I buy it all. Overall, very happy with eBay fabric.

    Many good transactions on eBay for me. I have one seller that I like so much, I even go to her eBay Store and buy directly - without having to bid - and still get great fabric and fabulous customer service. :)

    I have bought fabric and had good luck with that but I also bought precut squares that were supposed to be the same size. They were four different sizes. I will not get precut anymore.

    I have bought fabric from ebay. Just make sure to read description and look for brand of fabric and make sure you understand if price is by half-yard or a yard. So far I have not had a problem with any fabric I have bought.

    Bought some Moda marble fat quarters. They look great and they shipped out real fast.

    I have purchased off ebay and have gotten really nice fabrics. I do look for dealers when I buy and haven't purchased a great deal from individuals. So far I have been very pleased.
