Default Favorite Online Quilt Shops?

I know this topic has been talked about here before (probably many times) but I kind of wanted to rehash it just to see what some of the current favorites are.

I live in the Grand Middle of Nowhere so sometimes it's hard to find exactly the fabrics I want at the few local sources we do have here. I frequently end up buying online and wondered where others like to shop. At the moment my son is on a pirate kick so I was looking for pirate fabrics without a huge amount of success. It seems the pirate craze was really more like a year ago so a lot of that stuff has been phased out. I did find a few things here and there, and definitely did have more luck online than locally.

So here are some of the places I've bought from:

Joann.com (though I don't think their selection is that great)

Occasionally eBay if I'm desperate, but that's risky ... you can get stuff that smells like smoke, or isn't the amount promised, or is badly photographed so the colors aren't right, and then you sometimes get sellers that just take your money and run.

Anyone else have any favorites?

I am new to this , but I have ordered twice from ForthWorthFabricStudio.com and I have been very pleased. Super fast shipping and even adjusted a shipping fee down from what was quoted. Great selection too. I also ordered from FatQuarters.com adn Joann's this weekend, have not yet received the order so I can not comment on those yet. Online shopping is evil! Just kidding, so much better selection online but way too easy to spend money.

Oh, forgot about FatQuarters.com. I've bought from them, too, no complaints.

Canton Village Quilt Works http://www.cvquiltworks.com/shop/ is a fantastic source for lots of fabrics, I especially love the Kaffe Fassett selections here. Excellent customer service, broad selections, good prices & great sales----not to mention lots of giveaways & fab blog, too.

Ericas.com is my absolute favorite spot for 30s reproductions & some applique items & they offer international shipping deals when they have shipping specials (not just limited to US like SO many others).

Fabricworm.com & Sew Fresh Fabrics etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/sewfreshfabrics are great sources for modern fabrics! I have my eyes on several must-have bundles as we speak.

Have a lot of other great places I've ordered from but these are my top ones so far.

Fort Worth Fabric Studios! I have ordered a few times and with only one issue with a quilt kit that was packaged by Robert Kaufman, not them. They sent me the fabric I was shorted, even though they didn't have it in stock. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous prices and customer service!
