    I should have noted that I will continue to use a brick and morter store when I'm purchasing fabric for a new quilt--love to 'feel' the fabric and lay them next to each other. I also want the store to make a profit and stay open--but there times when these fabric sites make my day! :-)

    I have used this site for quite a while. Love it. If you also put the word "SALE" after your description, it will only give you sites that have that item currently on sale. What a lifesaver. I have never had any trouble buying from these shops.

Sounds like a plan to me. There are some other things that I have picked up and at a later time, I would be more then happy to list them and hopefully they will prove beneifical.

    This is great information. Thank you.

    What a great resource. I, too , found a fabric I've been looking for and there's a $3.00 difference from high-low. Thanks so much for sharing.

    YEA!!! I'd been looking online, unsuccessfully, for shops carrying P & B Textiles recent series "Nellie's Garden, but within 10 seconds of using your link I found there are three shops and one of them has the fabric on sale. I can't believe it was so easy! Thanks so much.

So I went into the Fabric Shop place that has over 200 stores under it's umbrella. At the search, I typed in what I was looking for, exactly what I was looking for. within 15 seconds the screen belongs to ME. The only thing that comes up is the exact fabric I'm looking for only and the name of the shops. I went through all of the ones that carried the most of the fabric line. Then wrote the name of the shop and the PRICE of the fabric. I found about 12 shops before I called it a night that the pricing for the exact same fabric ran from $6.75 a yard up to $10.49 a yard. I use this particular website most of the time and I have a much better chance of being able to pay what I want as much as $3.00 a yard less... Works for me!!!!
    Been using quiltshops.com for nearly ten years as fabric in Australia is usually $20+ a metre. There is also 'thousands of bolts' and there are some excellent sellers on ebay, you can get multiple yardage pieces for really good prices (take a peek at ockylocky for one - there are others) eg 2 yards for less than what we pay per metre here. Enjoy. CB
