Hi all

I went shopping today....I wanted a yellow (step above muslin color) plaid fabric...prefer
home dec fabric...

well that was a complete bust....nothing no where...

so....I was wondering if you all purchase fabric online....the color swatches are not at all
helpful IMO they let you purchase a sample...that might help..
but the other problem....I don't want to spend 40 bucks a yard...

I have had great success with Fabric.com. They are affordable & have nice quality (at least the fabric that I have purchased ! ). I love yellow, but the rest of the world doesn't seen to share my enthusiasm lol!

I looked there....thanks for letting me know it is a good place to shop

I liked the fact that I could choose my colors...regardless of the trends...but not in the modern world
seems like you can only get what THEY choose....

I change everything so often..it has to be on the cheap side to feed my compulsion....

I frequently buy fabric online and I haven't been disappointed yet. I do a lot of shopping at fabric.com too, and other sites as well. The local fabric stores have all closed save one, but the type of fabrics available are limited. Ccottom poly fabric is difficult to find.

I've gotten some great fabric bargains on ebay, most recently some cute kids' prints from Hancock's of Paducah's store on ebay. Free shipping, buy it now pricing. I've also purchased from Hawthorne Supply Co. and Fabricworm at their online stores (not ebay).

Fabric.com, Shabby Fabrics, Fat Quarter Shop, Missouri Quilt Co., Etsy, Ebay, Nancy's Notions, or anywhere I can find a specific fabric or discount prices that I'm looking for. Usually I head first to Fabric.com. I agree about the colors, many times I've just taken a chance on what I think is the right color, sometimes it's a hit, sometimes a miss. I've also found that often a retailer's prices on Ebay are cheaper than at their websites, that was a surprise.
