What are your favorite places to buy fabric online?
I like cottons best, and love sale fabrics, remnants and fat quarters.

I've never bought online.

If there is a thread for this subject already, just point me in the right direction.

Thanks bunches!

My favorites are:


www.fatquartershop.com (great customer service, very fast shipping, I do their Michael Miller Fat Quarter of the month club and love it!)

www.quiltersbiz.com (check out the discounted section)

and just found this, haven't purchased from them, but it comes highly recommended and I keep seeing them listed on sewing/quilting blogs I read
http://www.fabricworm.com/

I also like the Fab Shop Hop, which is a contest but it is a site that lists dozens and dozens of shops!

Scroll down to find a ton of shops!

http://FabricFlair.etsy.com

And I like this site:

All the above stores have cotton & sales!

I really like http://www.fabric.com I really feel like I can shop there without worrying about shipping too much. If I'm going to be shopping online, I'm probably going to be buying more than one yard of fabric and I'm going to be buying stuff I can't find locally so I just go there...since I live in the US, I get free shipping after having spent only $35. It's a sweet deal, but it's only for those in the U.S. They also have some killer deals too.

Other shops I like:

http://www.jandofabric.com (they have a great novelty selection and shipping has been reasonable for me)
http://www.fabricshack.com (they have the greatest price and selection on Kona cotton solids that I've seen so far and nice shipping rates, again coming from a US perspective...)
http://www.hancocks-paducah.com (I haven't had much luck with sales or with receiving their catalog after having submitted my info more than once but they have a great selection of fabric....read the fine print though, which isn't so fine, but I didn't notice it until the fourth or fifth time I visited the site....fabric is priced by the half yard.
http://www.equilter.com (one day I will buy fabric from this site for myself and not for others but they have a great selection too. And great service. They put stickers on their invoices. Smiley)

http://the-fabric-shopper-shop-directory.blogspot.com/ (this one isn't a store, per se, but a directory of online stores, it bears putting down on this list).

And finally...http://www.etsy.com/shop/freshsqueezedfabrics (I haven't bought from there myself but I know people who have....if I was looking for sales, I wouldn't go to them, but they have a great selection and one day, I will become a customer of there's as well.  Cheesy)

Good luck. Wink

Another shop I like is http://www.owfinc.com (they may not be up your alley but I really like them. They have more outdoor and technical type fabrics like if you wanted to make a tent or something...)

I second Fabric.com.  First, they've got great fabric - lots of designers I like, such as Amy Butler and Anna Maria Horner.  I wish they had some of the Japanese fabrics and the Anna Maria Horner flannels - but they constantly receive new items, so who knows...?

Second, their prices are very good, and become even better with their weekly sales, Deal of the Day, Wednesday Web Busters, and clearance prices. Every time you order, they send you a 15% off coupon for future purchases, which you can use on top of most sale prices. They frequently send $5 coupons, too. In the last two months, I have received email coupons for 20% off. If you end up ordering less than $35, one of these coupons easily makes up for the shipping.  I'm afraid I spend way too much at this store, but they often make it very hard to resist!

Third, their customer service is very, very good.  They make few errors, but when they do, it seems the customer is always right.  They have never failed to correct any problems I had in a manner that far exceeded my expectations.  Shipping is very quick as well.

http://www.warehousefabricsinc.com has some fun, inexpensive fabric for bags and such. Check out the "retro" section.

I've never bought fabric online. I looooove seeing and feeling the fabric. Colors can look very different online than they do in person.
