    I just got my order yesturday. Got four really great ones, 1 lighter weight one, and 1 that was not my taste. All nice fabrics.
    The last one I would not have picked if I had seen it in person verses a picture.

    YOu can call them - the phone number is on their muslin listing and they will email you a picture and then you can pick. I would have an idea of what I want and what company the necxt time I order from them. Like Moda, Timeless Treasure, RJR, etc.

    So YES I would order from them again. I would call them and order. Price depends on how many yards you get.

    I would request that they tape the package - the package was ripped when it arrived.

    No, this particular seller doesn't. But you can call and give your credit card info directly to him.

    Very good rating but I've never bought, only b/c I like to choose my own fabrics.
    Maybe I should re-think this though- prices are great and I could always gift something I didn't care for (if that happened)

    They have very good feedback. I looked at their items and have found a few things that I just can't live my life without. (LOL)

    I do most of my fabric buying on Ebay. I've never purchased from her, but the prices seem really good. Her feedback rating is good too.

    I always read some of the feedback comments before I buy, even if they have a 100%.

    If they don't mention who the fabric is by such as Moda I will send them a message and ask if it is Walmart and/or Joann quality because I don't want that.

    So, just make sure all of your questions are answered and then start with a small purchase! :mrgreen:

    I went to this site and am amazed at his inventory. He sells good brands and the prices seem to be very reasonable. The only thing I see wrong is that you can't pick out the print you want. If you are buying a selection I guess that doesn't matter. I did see some things that would have gone with my last quilt if I had seen it earlier.

    I thought if you sold on E-Bay you HAVE to accept Pay-Pal. I can't see E-Bay letting you sell on their site and only collecting the listing fee and a portion of the sale. E-Bay owns Pal-Pal. They are going to get every cent they can.

    I've looked at their listings before but haven't bought anything. Fabric seems to be great prices. I wondered about the PP issue, too. Thought you had to take PP to list on ebay!!

    Seems like very good fabrics and very good pricing. No, I have not bought from them but I might the next time I have the money to buy.
    Let us know if you do buy from there and what you think about it, please?
    Good Luck

    I LOVE Frank's! I've bought hundreds of fat quarters in assortments from him. Very fast service, reasonable shipping charges and you can't beat the prices.

    You're usually going to get a couple of "stinkers" in any given assortment, but the prices are so low that you don't really mind.

    I was particularly happy with the Civil War, Jinny Beyer, black and white assortments, but the assortments change all the time.

    I've also bought a lot of muslin yardage from him - I use muslin for interlinings, pressing cloths, foundations and patterns.

    You can call and order over the phone like we used to do in the "olden days" before secure servers and internet catalogs. :) Franks is terrific!

    I have never purchased from this seller from ebay, but I have been to his store in Claremont, NH. Prices were INCREDIBLE!! The seller is a male, his father started FRank's Bargain Center about 30 years ago. His name is Phil and if you call him and ask about particular fabrics, he can usually tell you if he has it. If you buy 100 yards of various cottons, your choice of course, the price is $2.65 a yard. He is great about prompt shipping and always tries to find the most economical way of shipping. I drove there once from Maine. Sounds like it's close, but really wasn't. Long drive there and back, but prices were worth it. I would definitely buy from this seller. Prices are great and so is the service.

    I've bought from him and he is great!

    He tries very hard to give you what you want. He answers the phone, is a one man business. I was very satisfied and will buy from him again.

    Frank's is awesome. The first time I bought from him, I was looking at a fat quarter homespun package to make a log cabin quilt. Phil answered the phone personally and asked what I was making. When I told him, he asked "would long quarters work better for you to make the strips for that?" I told him yes and they cut my order as long quarters rather than fat quarters for me at the same price. A beautiful selection of 75 different homespun fabrics at 63 cents per 1/4 yard! I have bought from him several times and several of my friends have bought from him and all of us have always been very happy. I always call him with my credit card. Pay Pal is NOT required to use E-bay.

    1) I haven't purchased any fabrics at either WalMart of JoAnn's for about six months - so perhaps the quality has changed drastically in that time.

    Prior to that, I have seen some cottons with "Exclusive Design for Jo-Ann stores" that seemed nice.

    I have never seen any cottons with "Exclusive Design for WalMart Stores" (or something similar to that.)

    I've purchased some VERY nice fabrics from WalMart stores in the past.


    2) Another thing - it would be a lot more accurate to say "SOME fabrics purchased FROM ________ are not satisfactory to me"
    rather making a sweeping statement that "ALL fabrics from ________ are unsatisfactory."

    Saying "WalMart fabric" is about as accurate as saying "WalMart toasters"

    I will concede that SOME of the very "cheap" fabrics that WalMart used to carry were quite awful.

    One needs to be careful with words such as: all, none, always, never, every.
