I'm having a brain cramp. :-P I know there are (at least) two major search engines for fabrics, but I can only remember one of them. I have http://www.quiltshops.com/index.html, but what's the other one please? I have way too many sites bookmarked and really need to get them organized...like that's really going to happen anytime soon! :roll: Thanks for the help!!

Thanks for this link. Just what I've been looking for. I've already found 6 possibilities for fabric I've been searching for months.

Here are two more (I searched my bookmarks and deleted a bunch of 'em!). All of these use different databases to search, so if you are looking for something specific, it's a good idea to try several search engines.
This one uses the fab shop hop sites http://www.fabshophop.com/fabsearch.asp
and this one uses a much smaller group of shops http://webstore.quiltropolis.net/
Sometimes, if you are looking for an older fabric, as I am, the smaller shops can be more apt to have it sitting around longer and in larger quantities. I was very successful and even found what I was looking for on sale! :D Hope you find the sites useful...they are definitely worth bookmarking! :thumbup:

Looks like we overlapped Luv2Kreate!!
