    I'm new at this so please excuse my lack of knowledge......but what is moda fabric? Is there something special about it? It's the daily deal at Missouri Star. I was just wondering if it is unique in some way.

    Moda is the name of a fabric manufacturer. It's very popular with quilters because it's good quality.

    You can check out Moda's website, they have previews of fabric:

    and a lot of free quilt patterns:

    Generally, yes. Joanns and Hobby Lobby have a wider span of fabrics from poor to good. Its not to say you can't get decent fabric there, you have to look more carefully at what you are buying.

    Moda has a very good reputation. And, from what I can see, they also participate in charitable contributions

    I agree, very nice fabric and I think that they have some of the most beautiful reds out there. Can you tell what my favorite color is?

    Moda started selling fabric in 1989 and is one of many fine quality quilting fabrics that I enjoy using!

    One of my favorite places to buy fabric is Connecting Threads. It's American grown, and made. That's what I love about it. It's excellent quality and I've never had a piece I've had to send back yet. There prices are great. Check them out.

    Moda generally is a very good quality fabric. I'm probably in the minority here but I don't like their 'marbles' regular fabric. Their 'marbles' flannel on the other hand is divine! Overall, very good quality.

    Not sure that's entirely true anymore. Nowhere on their site does it say the cotton is grown/processed in America. Their HQ is Vancouver, WA; their distribution center is in Ohio. This was all I could find about where the products are manufactured:

    "Our Manufacturing Partners

    Connecting Threads has very high standards for the International manufacturers we choose to work with. Executives from Connecting Threads have visited each of our manufacturers' factories personally to ensure that their facilities and labor practices are in line with both Connecting Threads' and our customers' expectations. Specifically, Connecting Threads works only with manufacturers who:

    Institute management practices that respect the rights of all employees
    Provide a safe and healthy work place
    Promote the health and well-being of all employees
    Oppose the use of child labor
    Have an active role in the positive development of their local community"
