    Somebody asked me recently where I shop online for nice fabric at reasonable prices. Because we ask and answer each other about it so often, and because opinions about which prices are reasonable vary so much between individual quilters, the recommendations and links probably number in the hundreds, scattered throughout every section of the board. I thought it might be time for us to start a fresh list; one based on some specific criteria. (I'm going to be bossy and obnoxious here, and set the limit to my own definition of "reasonable". That's for this list only, of course. Naturally, anybody who wants to can start a list in a different price range. Relax, ya'll. I haven't joined the Quilt Police. One too many cups of coffee this morning, perhaps, but never the Quilt Police! :lol: :shock: :lol: )

    1. The majority of the site's prices must be $6.50 per yard or less - including shipping from and to anywhere in the Continental United States. (Hopefully, that will mean our interntional friends can find real savings for themselves at these sites, too, despite the higher shipping charges.)

    2. If a site's regular prices are more than that, they can go on this list if they always have a really good selection of fabrics on sale for the limit or less.

    3. Please post recommendations only for sites from which you've already made satisfactory purchases yourself.

    Here are my favorites to get us started:

    I find some great bargains on Hancocks of Paducah site. They always have some great bargain basement prices. They ship very quickly too and their fabric is top quality.

    I guess I should "thank" you Patrice? Hmmm... Well, it was fun anyway and the economy needs help, right?!! :D

    Here's my addition to the list. The blow out sale, which changes frequently.

    I haven't ordered from this one but intend to. I like how their fabrics all coordinate. And if you order $50.00 they only charge $7.00 shipping to Canada. (free to the USA)

    I have purchased fabric from this ebay seller: http://stores.ebay.com/Apple-Creek-Treasures

    She cuts way down on shipping when more is purchased. The quality was high, high, high. I ordered Debbie Mumm stuff.

    I bought some really wonderful material last month from [email protected] I was very satisfied with my purchases and it was really cheap. Some of the material that I purchased was as cheap as $1.33 per half yard. After my first purchase I recieved a 15% off coupon too. I'll definitely use this site again.

    Here are some of my favorites:
    DebSews2.com; The Virginia Quilter (good sales, great product); Stitch-n-Frame (good sales, great product); Hancock's of Paducah; Suzette's Quilt.com; Summer Country Store.com. My 2 very favorites are Stitch-n-Frame and Virginia Quilter. I have never been disappointed w/them and their products are consistent quality, e.g. high thread count. I am a Batik and Asian fabric addict. More so on the batik side. I have purchased both as low as $4.95 a yard from the above. The Virginia Quilter offers free and/or reduced shipping many times a year. Both the VQ and S-n-F send out weekly newsletters w/weekly sales. GiGi :lol:

    Thank you, Patrice! I just showed your stash picture to my husband and told him I have "nothing!" Gotta go shopping to "keep up with Patrice." He said, "Poor Baby!" That means he agrees with my need to shop, right?

    I love Virginia Quilter (I always get tongue tied and call it Virginia Creeper after the plant my mom loved!) VQ has good stuff and are very prompt.
    I also have ordered from Keepsake Quilting and Hancocks of Paducah. Both are great sites, good fabric, wonderful service.

    Okay, this is a very naughty, bad thread... Even before I had a half a cup of coffee this morning I went to the heart of dixie web shop and spent a big dent of money.... I only remember the cute coordinating fat quarter bundles I bought... God only knows what else will show up with them...
    But I did remember to enter the 15 % discount code of 13131.

    I so agree with you. I've had coffee and I am still oh, so tempted. This 'heart of dixie' site is fabulous!

    i wake up wondering how on earth i let myself go so crazy so often. and how many lifetimes it would take to use it. :shock:

    then i go shopping. :roll:

    luckily, 95% of it is from walmart. i have slowed down quite a bit since i started shopping online and paying double or triple per yard. who knew paying so much more could turn out to be a good thing? :lol: :lol: :lol:
