    Where I'm located is very limited in fabric shops. One is Hancocks :roll: and then there is a small shop thats only been open about a year and a half.
    Do you purchase on-line? If so, what shops do you recomend?

    Quilt in a day is another good site, but shipping is high, but no tax, so offsets it a little. Also love thousands of bolts. connecting threads, and hancocks of paducah.

    Ditto on the Hancocks of Paducah.

    My most favorite shop is Shabby Fabrics: http://shabbyfabrics.com/. I always get my fabric in a timely manner and I LOVE her fabric selection. All around great customer service.

    Another shop I use frequently is Fat Quarter Shop: http://www.fatquartershop.com/

    Thank you for posting this. I was just going to ask this question myself. I recently moved here (almost 300,000) and can you believe there are absolutely NO fabric stores? The nearest one is 2 hours away, so I foresee more online shopping. I'm one who really likes to shop for fabric in person so I can really see what I'm buying, but I will have to take what I can get.

    hancock's of paducah, stitch-n-frame, connecting threads.

    Free shipping means I can add $10 to $15 more of fabric because I allow that in what I would spend.

    Love free shipping!!

    I use Keepsake Quilting.com and auntbeassewingbasket.com and
    fabric.com

    Mostly I shop at the retail stores,though 'cause I am lucky to have them in abundance.

    ebay! Shipping is less for the more you buy. They can get 23 yards :shock: :shock: :shock: in a box for $9.80 if you buy from the same seller. :wink:
