Hi everyone!

Just got into bag making, love it! I'm currently working on my first messenger bag and will post it when I'm finished.

I love having lots of zippered compartments in my bags, but have found that zippers, especially the heavy duty ones, are ridiculously expensive (I looooove Costumers brand zippers, but they're not cheap!). I waited until all notions were 50% at my local sewing store to get some for my most recent project, but I would like to find a place online where I can start buying them at a reasonable price. Any suggestions?

www.atlantathread.com.  They sell YYK zippers.  I usually buy 12 (different colors and sizes) at a time because you get a price break.  An 11 inch nickel zipper is around $1.20 and 11 inch regular zippers are .32 each.  They have a wide variety of sizes and zipper types.  They charge shipping, but it's reasonable (and a better deal if you buy many zippers at once).  Occasionally they offer free shipping as a promotion. It's a great place to buy serger thread as well.

Great tip! I will definitely have to explore this site more because I am hoping to get into making some zippered wallets soon.

I've purchased from dady10 also - good zippers, good deals. I used to buy a variety color pack from some etsy folks, but always end up with hideous unused colors. I find that off-white to tan colors work with mostly everything!
