    Where or what is your favorite place to order quality fabric from?
    Tried the search and didn't get too many results...
    Am looking to find a few reliable sources for quilting fabric and backings.
    Thanks,
    Kirsten

    I buy most of my fabric from Connecting Threads. I like their thread too. My machine likes it so I like it. Every Wednesday there is a web special and sometimes there is fabric for $3 a yard or less. That's when I buy for backing. The fabric is very nice. I have never had a problem ordering online but you can call in an order and request a free catalog. Keepsakes Quilting has great buys on fat quarters. I bought 100 fat quarters for $99 with free shipping. Everyone was different fabric. Quilt in a Day has great sales and excellent customer service too. Bayside Quilting has blow out sales often, one going on right now. I buy most of my quilting tools from I Have A Notion. She has the best prices on high end tools.

    I like eQuilter, Fabric Depot and Hancock's of Paducah. I have never had any problems with them. Delivery has always been prompt and accurate.

    Thousands of Bolts, but be prepared to sit at your computer for a couple of hours to look at all the fabric choices. Great prices too. The only thing is you can only buy in whole yard increments unless you go to the pages for fat quarters and short cuts which is kind of a misnomer because they don't actually cut they just give you the option to buy what they have left from a bolt that is less then a whole yard.

    I like the wishlist feature where you can put your selections in a holding area and view them next to each other.

    here is a link:

    KO24, try www.fabricdepot.com. They are located in Portland, Oregon and have a huge selection of good quality fabric. They carry all the name brand that you find in all the quilt shops.

    I have a favorite on-line quilt store. I help put it together and I'm always looking for ways to improve it. Here is the link - Rocking Chair Quilts

    Let me know your thought on the site. As a Quilting Board buddy of mine you can have a coupon code to take 10% off of you purchase of $25 or more - "QBuddy" apply it in the shopping cart before you check out.

    www.hancocks-paducah.com is my all-time favorite! I have a package waiting for me right now up in the main office :wink: They have terrific online-only sales - just have to remember that mostly fabric is priced by the half-yard. :D

    my favorite is http://www.quiltshops.com

    It's not just one store, it's about 200. Great place when you are looking for something specific (like stripes or border prints) and it shows all of them at every store. You can comparison shop. One store might have the same thing as another store, but the prices are different. Most of these stores will allow you to put in half yard quantities.

    WOW! That's the best fabric search I've seen in awhile!

    That is a great search engine. I have been trying to find A Stitch In Time by Red Rooster and it found it right away.

    Thank you for giving us this link. This is the best search engine I have ever seen. I found some fabric I was looking for on sale for $7. I've seen it for $9.75 elsewhere. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    The fabric from Sew Mama Sew is top-notch. Their selection is fabulous plus the service and turn around time is excellent. I highly recommend them.

    Thousands of Bolts, Whittles, Fabric.com, Fabric Shack are all very good.
    I've used the Eleanor Burns site, but delivery was super slow, then they sent the wrong fabric. The folks seemed nice, but just didn't have their ducks in a row. Kind of annoying.

    I have had great luck with certain items I wanted on e-bay. Just got the Moda line Nature's Notebook - 2 layer cakes and 7 yds of backing/binding for DD's quilt. Paid a great price, lady was easy to deal with, and most appreciative for your business.

    Marshalls Dry Goods, Connecting threads and thousands of bolts...marshalls dry goods is great because you can shop by designer and they are 3.99 a yard or less, also if they are short of what you order they send what they have and still give you a complete credit for some more fabric...Unbelieveable!
