    Shopping for fabric on-line

    So far I bought fabrics on-line once and it was on eBay. I am looking at buying from fabrics.com and Beverly's. Are they good places to shop? What other places do you use? I am looking dor Boy Scout fabric and none of my LQS carry them. Help!

    I've bought from fabrics.com and they have been great. Also buy from Connecting Threads, Keepsake Quilting and The Virginia Quilter. Satisfied with each of them.

    I have bought from Crafttown.com and Fabrics.com without any issues. Hancocks of Paducah also with no problem.

    Edited to add: I forgot about http://www.5bucksayard.com/ !! Great prices and quick shipping!

    I love the cottons from Connecting Threads for kids' clothing. I make a lot of dresses/jumpers for a family of little girls and their is especially easy to care for--no wrinkles straight out of the dryer. I watch for sales and can make the dresses for around $10 each. They last through a couple of kids, at least.

    I like fabrics.com . Be sure to check out coupons before placing any online order. Google "store name coupon codes" to see what comes up. Usually retailmenot.com and tjoos have the best coupons.

    Both are good - Beverly's is a local store for me and I know they're having 25% off all fabric Labor Day sale Sunday & Monday (so guess where I'm going tomorrow?? LOL). Not sure if the sale is online too though. Fabric.com is having a sale right now too (coupon codes are on their main page) - I've bought LOTS of fabric from them. I had a box from them get lost last month and they replaced it right away. They're good about notifying you if they are out of something too.

    I have used fabric.com, Hancocks, Connecting Threads, Favorite fabric, Bear Paw Quilting and had good luck with them all. Anytime there has been and error in an order I simply contact them and everyone has been very willing to correct the order at little or no cost to me.

    I noticed a "scouting fabrics" category at www.4my3boyz.com when I placed an order yesterday.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
