    Favorite On-Line Fabric & Quilting Stores?

    I'm fairly new to this board (and new to sewing/quilting) and have found some wonderful online stores for both fabric and quilting notions/tools (yep - I've caught the bug - like to collect quilting fabric, notions and books - of course on sale!). Every once in while I read about yet another great store - which makes me wonder what else there may be out there!

    What is YOUR favorite place to shop online (preferably that has good quality as well as good/low prices, sales, or coupons from time to time)?

    There are a couple of local quilt shops nearby but unfortunately they are not open in the evenings when I'm able to get out of the house to shop! So that leaves Joann's, Hobby Lobby & Walmart. Great low prices (and sales/coupons at Jo's & HL), but not always the best quality.

    Here are a few of my favorite online shops where I've consistently found good prices, frequent sales, good quality merchandise and great customer service:

    FabricDepot.com (my absolute favorite)
    Connectingthreads.com
    Hancocks-Paducah.com
    NancysNotions.com
    MissouriQuiltCo.com

    Any others??

    www.thousandsofbolts.com; good prices, quality fabrics, lots of fabrics. You can sort by color or theme, you can audition your choices with each other, you can even try them out in a sample block, I think.

    fabric.com has been my go-to shop for years- good prices, great selection- and free shipping at the $35 level (I can always find $35 worth to spend) I've actually been shopping with them for something like 15 years. also, Keepsake quilting, Jenny Beyer, PineNeedles, Bear Paw quilting...there are so many! If you join the 'fabshophop' you will have access to literally hundreds of shops to browse/check out- the shop hop happens *I think* 10 times a year- you have a month to locate a 'shop hop bunny' at each of the participating shops- and register for prizes---it is free---many of the shops offer additional free drawings if you sign up for their monthly newsletter...over the years I've won many great prizes- fabric collections, gift certificates, new rulers, books...you can also add shops to a 'favorites' list- if it is a shop you fall in love with & want to go back & visit for specific items.. the May hop has 140 shops...the number does vary from about 130 up to 180 shops participating in each hop...they also have bonus bunnies- free patterns---check it out....just type in Fabshophop---sign up & start hopping.

    Another vote for Fabric.com from me. They're everything ckcowl says, and when they (rarely) mess up an order they go out of their way to make it right. AND they keep detailed order history so you can look back and find the exact name of something you bought in the past, which is awesome. AND you can register as a "partner" or something like that and get shopping points...I think that's a new thing they're doing (at least, I only recently noticed it) and I was able to redeem $25.00 against my order. Hard to beat that!

    And another vote for Beverlys.com too (they're a local store for me, but sometimes their online sales are better than in-store.)

    I love Missouri Star Quilt Company. I've purchased many of the Daily Deal sale items, including pre-cut fabrics, templates, etc. Also be sure to subscribe to their YouTube channel. A new tutorial is uploaded every Sunday. Jenny has some awesome quilt ideas and shows lots of helpful short-cuts.

    Equilter has a great selection.

    Hawthorne Threads has some unique fabrics and good sales. They also have discounts based on how many yards you order. The people are very helpful too.

    Fat Quarter Shop (www.fatquartershop.com/) is my favorite online place to shop. I also shop at fabric.com. But I like FQS the best.

    I have liked the Fabric Shack in Ohio. They always have fabrics on sale and they charge you EXACT cost of shipping. I am currently trying to find 1/2 a yard of fabric and two stores want to charge me $6 for shipping!!

    My favorite is eQuilter. There is a clearance section with special sales offered now and then. Sometimes shipping is free. The warehouse is located in Boulder and there is an option to pick up your order at the warehouse office if you happen to live close enough. It is a drive from my home and the last time I went there, I combined it with a fun trip to Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, etc. Celestial Seasonings, open to the public for tours, is nearby, too.

    Thanks, again, for all the wonderful suggestions! I am going to try doing the shop hop - which will bemy excuse to also "try out" a few new places. Meanwhile, if you stumble upon a great find, post it here!

    One more I didn't see mentioned that is one of my fav's formandfabric.com
    They have 2.99 shipping, also some good sales, but you need to get on their email list to know about them.
