    I wanted to say that I've received really good service from this shop online. I found it via a blog. I was looking for solid colors, and a blog I was reading said this was a good place to find inexpensive solids. They were $4.19 per yard for Kona.

    I needed five different shades of blue and one of white. When I ordered, I inadvertantly missed getting one of the blues into my "shopping cart." It was the weekend, and so I sent them an email asking them to include it. I especially wanted it to be included in the original order because they charge a flat rate for shipping using the post office's flat rate mailers. I ordered about 3.5 yards and was charged only $2.50 for shipping.

    Anyway, I sent them an email (since it was the weekend) asking them to fix it. When I got up Monday morning, I had an email from them saying they had fixed it already and that it would ship with the original order. That was this past Monday, and I received my correct shipment today, Thursday. They also sent me a little letter opening and a laminated chart with how many blocks you need, according to block size, for different sizes of beds. Very handy.

    I thought this was excellent service, and so I wanted to tell you about them. I will definitely go back when I'm looking for fabric in the future.

    Fabric Shack is my absolute favorite. I have bought 10 yards at a time and still the shipping was only $2.50.

    And, they always include a little "extra" gift - - I have gotten a Fabric Shack pen, a keychain, 2 packs of machine needles, 2 free patterns, a Fabric Shack letter opener, and I forget what else. I order from them a couple of times a month, and they are just the best. I usually get my order 2 or 3 days after I place the order.

    Really, you all should check this place out! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I love that you are sharing something positive. Thanks! I'm getting ready to order a lot of yardage for a specific quilt, and this shop was in the running for me.

    I love that you can purchase 1/8 of a yard, so few online retailers will do that! I've had great service there, too.

    I have ordered from Fabric Shack several times and always get fast service and I love their cheap postage. Plus they always have alot of fabrics on sale. I really do love shopping from the comforts of home!! I have found too that the fabrics I get are really about exactly what I see on the computer!!

    I've never ordered from the Fabric Shack online but I have been to their store (it's about an hour from where I live) because I like to fondle the fabric before I buy it! And they have always been really nice and patient when I've been in there. With the cost of gas, maybe I'll have to start visiting them online!

    I do more and more of my shopping online. I live in a rural area, and while it's not terribly far to drive into town, I'd just as soon stay at home. Recently, I ordered some embellishments, and when they arrived, I realized that they were from a shop close by. I didn't pay any attention to where they were coming from! And I probably found what I was looking for easier than if I had gone to their store.

    They have a wonderful selection of fabric, but their website is not easy to navigate. They just have the one drop down list to search from, and there's SO much on it. It's probably a lot easier if you know what you are looking for. I am always browsing! :) Needless to say they have great prices and a huge selection. And, obviously, great service.
