An Online Extra to Threads #120, pp. 62-65

For lots of sewers, the pleasure of wandering through a local fabric shop, touching swatches of fine yardage and dreaming up future garment wonders, is a thing of the past. So where do you go when you need—or just want—to purchase fabric? In Threads #120, I discuss the many advantages of shopping for fabric via the Internet. With the power of the World Wide Web at your fingertips, you have access to hundreds of retailers, each with a tempting selection of goods to offer.

To learn how to make the most of your online shopping experience, check out my article, "Online Fabric Shopping," on pp. 62-65. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to find out how easy, and sometimes addictive, it can be to order your fabric from afar. To get you started, I've compiled a list of Web sites to visit. It's up to you to decide how often to press the "Place Order" button.
