    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:

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

    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.

    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.
    OVER THE RAINBOW JANE is the name of my Dear Baby Jane----though it should be poor, neglected & may never ever be finished baby jane!

    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!

    I shop primarily online as I live in a rural area with no quilt shops. I buy most of my fabric from a few trusted Ebay sellers and usually will only buy via auction...great way to save $$$. I also shop at:

    connectingthreads.com
    whittlesfabrics.com
    keepsakequilting.com
    fabric.com

    Of those Connecting Threads and Whittles are my favorites. Hope that helps!

    Fat Quarter Shop is my all time favorite online store. Shabby Fabric is one of my fav's also. I have never had any trouble with ebay. If they take your money and run, turn them in. Ebay promises to pay you if something like that happens. And if it smells like smoke, send it back. Ebay promises that they will reimburse you if you are not satisfyed. I buy from moandmacs on ebay. Wonderful store. They always send me gifts with my orders. They once sent me a book about all the quilter's who published with CT Publishing and the women all had great stories to tell. Very good store to shop. I also shop at The Quilting Bee in Austin, TX. I shop online all the time now. When I go to the local quilt shops, they only have a few fabrics from any given line. Online I can get the whole fabric line, if I choose. But I do shop at my LQS frequently.

    Crafttown Fabrics, inter-net orders are always 10% off and pre cuts are always 20% off. The best selection of quilt backings also. I also like Fabric Buffet.

    I like www.thehometownquilter.com. She isn't a huge shop, however, she is very nice and she aims to please her customers and her shipping charges aren't outrageous.

    I like www.fabric.com www.equilter.com www.bearpawquilting.com and I do buy from certain sellers on e-bay. I have learned by some experience about some of the sellers there. If buying on e-bay, the text has to say non-smoking studio or something of the sort. I do not want fabric with any kind of odor.

    I buy alot of Moda and I shop online I buy from Crazyquiltgirlshop.com, keepsake quilting, Hancocks of paducah. I buy from Etsy when I'm trying to find an older fabric or a certain fabric I need more of. I only had one weird experience and that was with JandOfabrics and I'm hoping it was an isolated event. I ordered like 8 yards of fabric for a backing and when it arrived the tape to seal the envelope was covered in bird seed, the fabric was fine and wrapped but I thought it was super odd that someone would seal an envelope with tape with bird seed stuck to it.

    On a side note I just saw some pirate fabric bugfabric.com has some. I have not bought from them but I've been looking for certain fabric so I been to tons of shops online. I'm looking for White Tiger fabric and can't believe I can't find it so I feel you!

    Even though I don't buy much fabric on line, this is very good information to know. I only knew of a few of them.
