Where do you guys shop online for crafting and sewing supplies? Are there any cool online Australian shops out there?

Based in Vic.
They are pretty awesome!

Lincraft have an online store that sell the basics but nothing special. I wish I knew of more... I'm dying to buy from the US but with the dollar the way it is now and postage *sigh*

I've shopped online here a few times, and it's always been pleasant:

This is a great list - also with the Aussie dollar as is now . . . online shopping from overseas is WELL worth it!

Shame the aussie dollar just plumeted against the US dollar  Sad I like:

http://www.fatquartershop.com/ Great range and great bargain bin, postage not too bad.
http://littlecherubsheirloom.com/store/ Postage a little bit cheaper than FQshop.

I have also shoped from Vic stitch, now Oz stitch and had great service, a family business too:
http://www.ozstitch.com.au/
And this is the cheapest place online I have found for hoopla hoops and they have very tempting other stuff too!

Let me know where you shop online

It totally bugs me that the fat quarter shop (as it calls itself) has a minimum cut of .5 yard.
Yikes....trying to buy a FQ there is really disappointing! Undecided

Have had fun recently with
http://www.thequiltedcastle.com/

and an aussie site called http://www.wrappedinfabricaustralia.com/

Also just bought a little bit of fabric from some lovely Etsy sellers. But haven't received it yet, so probably too soon to rave about it! They were selling FQ's for $2.50 which I thought was a reasonable price.

Hope all the bricks and morter quilt shop owners out there don't howl me down and accuse me of sending them broke. But lately they haven't been too nice to me. There's a snooty one in a Canberra suburb named after NSW's first governor where the sales ladies remind me of Prue and Tru from Kath n Kim. Plus I am not flush with funds, so it is either buy online at a discounted rate or don't buy at all.

I use http://www.funkyfabrix.com.au/ fairly regularly, quick postage and great range - AND they have sales and free postage offers often Smiley
