Online Fabric Shopping: A List of Resources
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,” in Threads #120 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 websites to visit. It’s up to you to decide how often to click the “place order” button.
You can find additional online sources for sewing notions, dress forms, and fabrics by category in “Online Shopping and Resource Guide.”
Editor’s Note: Some of these online fabric sources may be temporarily closed or have limited hours or supplies due to the impact of the coronavirus. Be sure to check back with the sites for updates.

I found a wonderful source of cotton duck fabrics online, they sell canvas, nylon and whole range of fabrics for making bags and other outdoor projects.
I bought some of their fabric to make a tipi outdoors.

Wow there are so many choices! This list is really helpful. But you missed a great niche site that I use all the time. Check Out Marine Vinyl Fabric For Upholstery Fabric.
I like http://bigsalefinder.com/?s=fabric as it compares the from not only eBay and Amazon, but a lot of other shopping sites.
Google products will only show products who choose to advertise with Google, which definitely won't cover Amazon for example.
I've found lots of sewing and haberdashery products from them, it's so much easier to compare prices from the one site.
I have a baby lock endurance and am having problems.......was told by the retailer that it might be my thread.........the way it comes off the spool....if I have several "kinds" of thread that are coming off the spools different ways.....how can I fix it to come off without loops?...I saw several comments about the ThreadPro......but cannot find any info about it.....
In Canada, try Fabricland's online store.
