    As ahousebound person I shop on the internet, my "stash" is full, full, full of fabric from ebay and have only one bad batch. Most of the fabric is good quality, just be careful on the description. Oh yes, and a lot of fabric that some husband found in the garage, it stunk and no cotton fabric to be found, threw it out.

    Quilt peddler is good to. I have bought fabrics from Ebay for years and basically they are good. You just have to know the fabric you are buying. I had one seller that misrepresented the quality of fabric she had and she refunded my money without a problem. So far so good and I have been buying fabric from there for at least 15.00 years.

    I agree with the poster who recommended checking feedback scores and remarks. I can't recall getting a bad deal off ebay - I have no choice to buy online as we live some 600 ish air miles from the nearest large town. Have bought from Mo and Macs no problem and I seem to remember a seller by the ID Franks ( and a number after the name) also do some nice lots. Good luck!

    ive only had 1 bad experience with ebay i ordered some fabric that stunk so bad i couldnt store it in the house i washed it 4 times and it was ok so i wound up using it i almost threw it out it was so bad. the pkg wasnt damaged in
    any way so it came from the seller that way but it was really inexpensive compared to some just like it id already purchased i guess it was still worth it even if i count my wasted time and the extra ironing. i buy lots on ebay as i live in a rural area and theres few fabric choices with out driving a long way besides sometimes its just way cheaper and lets face it with the economy like it is we have to stay within our very thankful for my fabric stash.

    I have bought several yards from Ebay and was satisfied with it,like she said if they don't put from a smoke free home just ask the seller if it is a smoke free.
