    Can you all give me your opinion about online shopping...the best website to shop on...and if the quality of fabric is good. I've seen connectingthreads and I will be trying them out. Great prices too.

    I would also like to know a good place to get Jo Morton fabrics ONLINE.

    I really like Fabric Depot, you can go to their site and sign up for online sale notifications. :D:D:D

    Check out the sites shipping prices before shopping... they can be a deal breaker right out of the gate for me :wink:

    If you pick name-brand fabrics at an on-line, it should always be as good as at your LQS. We have an on-line store that is an extension of our brick-and-mortar store. Both the on-line store and the brick-and-mortar store sell the same fabric off the same bolts.

    Just watch your shipping costs, they can kill you. I live in a subdivision that is in the country just a mile or so out of town.There are retail businesses well within a mile of me, but UPS adds an dditional cost for shipping because it is determined by them to be a rural area. I buy from Keepsake and have purchased from Connecting Threads. The last order from CT was dissappointing to me because the quality was not very good. Not terrible but not what I expected.

    I like Connecting Threads for their kits. Keepsake Quilting is good too, but can be costly. My all time favorite is Fabric.com. They have free shipping on orders over $35, which is easy to achieve. Sign up for their e-mail list. The orders come usually within a week. Grandmasatticquilting.com is another good one. She has all qualities of fabric. Clotilde.com has fabric and patterns. I found something I couldn't find anywhere else at abbimays.com. There are so many I could go on and on.

    On fabric.com today you get 10% off an order of $40 plus free shipping because the order is over $35.

    I shop all over the place and have not had any trouble. If I know what I am looking for I go to http://www.quiltshops.com/, click on Item Search, type in what I am looking for (and usually add SALE to the description), then when I find what I want, I order.

    I also love thousandsofbolts.com - they even have a color matcher option on their site. I've used it and I haven't been disappointed.

    Thank you for all the online places to shop. I like fabric.com. They offer a deal a day that features a special price on a deal that lasts 24 hours. I have been pleased with everything I have purchased.

    I've used Whittles and they have great fabric. They have great customer service as well.

    I live near Whittles and the ladies there are absolutely WONDERFUL! Anytime I have been in there they are busy cutting for orders and leave you alone until/unless you want help.

    There prices are so good I rarely shop anywhere else.

    Just checked out the Whittles website. Looks great! Guess I have another place to shop. So much fabric, so little time. It's a good thing I live alone; well except for two big dogs. And they don't care how much fabric I bring in.

    I think most of my mail order stuff has come from fabric.com and hancock's of paducah. I only buy if it's on sale and keep in mind hancock's prices are for a half yard (but some are discounted if you buy more than a yard). Fabric.com usually has a coupon or two out there-you can find them by googling.
