Where I used to live, I had 4 quilt shops with tons of bolts of fabric within 30 mins drive...and this didn't include Wallys or JoAnns or Hancocks..
Now I have 2 within 20mins and 2 more even farther out without a great selection.
I have a JoAnns and Hancocks close by but sometimes I really want a cozy wonderful quilt shop for new patterns, unique fabric and great advice.
I have started thinking of shopping online for fabric to build my stash...
Does anyone have any favorite sites or shops online that have good customer service and delivery times?
Thanks,
Kirsten

I love Hancocks-Paducah online. First rate quality & fast shipping. Plus they have a very cool catalog!

Most of the ones I shop at are more for the 1800's reproduction fabrics, but I got all my shops from the Fabshophop, If you dont want to hunt down the silly bunny you can still use their list of shops to find the ones that are right for you.

I've bought from this ebay store many times & never been disappointed. Excellent service & fast delivery. Good deals & lot of cool stuff.

They also have a website.

I haven't bought that much on line since mostof it I can get right away from the shops here in town. I recently ordered from Bear Paw Quilting and was very impressed with their customer service, and speed. They also threw in a fat quarter just for ordering and it was drastically marked down fabric that I ad ordered!

Eleanor Burns would be one of my choices. Go to www.quiltinaday.com and she has beautiful fabric , a lot of sales and good service. Also Connecting Threads is a nice one.

Greetings!

Don't know where in WA you live, but I just discovered a quilt shop in Leavenworth that sounds like what you're looking for. If you ever go through there, be sure to stop. Dee's Country Accents

I really like shopping on line and have been very satisfied with the few purchases I have made. My problem is with the costs of shipping it is cheaper for me to go to the fabric store. I will look at the clearance racks on line but most are the price I would pay at the fabric store. If I see any good bargains on line I will let you know.
