    Where's a good place to look....

    for current fabric collections? I don't usually purchase fabric collections, I'm a "buy a color as I need it" type of gal. Or I buy fabric I like when I see it or when it's on sale. I'm trying to make a Wish List for a Christmas gift exchange and thought maybe I could put some fabric on it and since it's a family exchange and they're not quilters I had better link to exactly what I want. LOL So I need some sites that have current fabric collections. Thanks for your help!

    I would go with the ones listed above and ask for gift certificates. It's so hard to purchase fabric for someone else.

    Keepsake Quilting has a lovely catalog you can request. They have tons of collections. They are on line too if you want to look there.

    If there is a quilt shop near, put fat quarter bundle on you list and the directions to the shop.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    There are lots of online stores that you can sign up to get emails when new collections or fabric arrive. I am signed up for Fabric Shack, Hancock of Paducah and Quilting by the Bay.

    I find most of mine at Keepsake Quilting. They always carry so many beautiful ones.

    You can't beat Connecting Threads or Keepsake Quilting. They have lots of collections at reasonable prices. Great material and good service. They have sales and free shipping.

    This is so true! If you are not a quilter you don't realize how much thought goes into fabric choices besides color!

    Thanks for all of the suggestions! We have a no GC rule in our swap. I'll be choosing the fabric and putting a link to the specific fabric on my wish list. I can't imagine my MOM picking out fabric for me! LOL

    Equilter.com is really good. And if you call them they are very helpful.

    If you like batiks, Fabric Fanatics are great for them. Their on-line store is huge and photos are pretty true to color

    Go to a bookstore and look through current magazines. I would be careful asking non-sewers to buy material. Maybe it would be better to ask for a gift card to a specific store, like Hancocks of Paducah.

    I like all of the above places, but I would add Hancocks of Paduka (special).
