My favorite is www.fatquartershop.com I love their service and selection, but they might be a bit higher priced than Hawthorne threads. Fabric.com is supposed to be cheap, but sometimes they mess up orders and apparently just send the fabric wadded in a big pile lol.

www.fabricdepot.com has sales all the time where everything is 20-35% off. They are my local store so I've never bought online, but I get the online sales emails and they seem good.

I like www.connectingthreads.com and also the two mentioned by Mare...I have had a lot of luck with designer fabrics at www.zeetzeet.com and www.emeraldcityfabrics.com   oh, and www.jandofabrics.com  but they are not cheap fabrics...just cheaper than my local high end store...I mostly buy online for convenience and to get a specific fabric...

www.missouriquiltshop.com

I will have to look at my credit card statements to find the other ones... Cheesy

I mentioned in the QuiltAlong thread, but I've used some of the blocks from two of my groups (the pinwheel and the wonky log cabin) to make a quilt top for sweets4ever's new baby! I framed the smaller pinwheel blocks out to match the size of the others and got them pieced together and added a border. The color schemes I used for those two groups matched her nursery colors pretty well!

Thanks everyone, I looked around at the shops suggested, placed an order with two just on sale odds and ends to see how the fabric looks and how the whole things goes LOL.

I needed some odd ends to go with what I have to work on a couple of projects, and a bit of solid to finish up the backing on another. The sashing on the swap quilt.

Just my local shop has lost her mind! jumping up about 5.00 a yard so much of the fabric is now close to 15 and 20 a yard. dont know about others but that is out of my price range.

I do love shopping local and have loved the shop, but goodness!!!!

well and wonderment

Sadly the last two LQS in my county are in the process of closing.  That makes 4 that have closed in the past couple years.  

I did my share to keep them open... but there is only so much one can do.

I loved going in there and shopping and chatting with the ladies that run it. We have the one here in town and a couple in the town up the road in one direction about 25miles up the road and another about 15miles up the road.

I just dont understand the increase. the one here in town has always been a little bit more the others in the area, but the also offer the classes and have a little bed and breakfast type thing with weekend quilting events and so forth.

nice shop, lovely people, but the prices shhhh

well and wonderment
