    And don't forget your local, independent, brick and mortars!

    (North Texans, don't miss: http://citycraftonline.com)

    best,

    Cannot forget Chez Ami for some of the best knits - interlock etc for all ages. But the best fabrics for children clothes. Works great with Ottobre patterns!

    I bought my wedding dress silk here:
    http://www.decorativesilk.com/scripts/default.asp
    great choice and great prices.

    Being in Europe, I would love it if your list would show which stores offer international shipping Y/N.

  4. sunnyc | | #4

    I also love E-Quilter.com -- they are very nice to do business with and have nice web features. I live in a remote part of northwestern MT and shop for fabric online all the time!

  5. ginni | | #5

    fabulous list! especially love Thai Silks in San Jose. always stop-to-shop whenever I can get down that way. a treat to be helped by their knowledgeable and happy group of women.

    BTW, a typo jumped out ...
    Clotilde URL is misspelled; should be http://www.Clotilde.com

    thanks so much for such a comprehensive list. and, i'll be amending the list as more comments come in.

  6. Norristown | | #6

    Have you visited judytopkis.com? Beautiful hand printed fabrics with original designs.

  7. mcguirk | | #7

    Beware-- do not order from http://www.fabricclub.com. I have had many problems with them and they have made many promises that they did not deliver. They do not reimburse for fabrics that have been sold out. I have purchased many fabrics from them but they are not honest vendors and have cheated me more than once by not reimbursing me for fabrics sold out. This is the only fabric vendor on-line that I have ever had any problems with. Best mcguirk

  8. IdeaGenerator | | #8

    I have loved ordering from Atlanta Thread and Supply Company at http://www.atlantathread.com They have great prices and fast shipping and I can get Maxi Lock thread that Jo-Ann Fabrics doesn't sell. I used to get it whenever we were traveling near a Hancock Fabrics since they went out of business in Western PA, but Atlanta Threads is much cheaper!

  9. Mill | | #9

    Speaking of local brick and mortars- in Brooklyn, NY there is http://www.sew-materialistic.com. And, Faska, btw Sew Materialistic ships int'l...

    You failed to mention Ginnys Fine Fabrics in Rochester, Minnesota. She has been in business for 30 some years and has wonderful fabric. She will send swatches upon reguest.
    ginnysfinefabrics.com

  11. 3feathers | | #11

    Thank you so much for your yearly update of online fabric sources! and also for all of the wonderful, educational articles you so generously share with the 'sewing nation'! I have two personal favorites from your list - Fabric.com for it's awesome customer service and prices; and Adrianne's Attic for sometimes hard to find finer sewing fabrics and prices (she seems to be expanding into fun fabrics, too!).Both have served me well!

  12. grandmagill | | #12

    My favorite for quilting cottons is http://www.overrainbow.com and for heirloom http://www.Farmhousefabrics.com I second Chez Ami for especially children's knits.

  13. EileenMS | | #13

    Believe it or not, fabric stores in my area is down to one, and very limited.I'm delighted with your listing. Currently I am looking for dotted-swiss for a child's dress. Can you help? Thanks, Eileen

  15. MartaT | | #15

    This is a great list. I came home today to a big box of fabric and a couple of Burda mags from Fashionista Fabrics. They're great quality fabrics, what a find. I love being able to buy single Burdas.

  16. deChez | | #16

    Hmmmm...I wonder how I could get my vintage patterns site, http://www.VintageMimi.com added to that list?

  17. Anoel53 | | #17

    I am researching wholesale companies that sell sewing supplies. I am writing a business plan to start a sewing supply company. I would appreciate any and all assistance to help me complete this plan.

    thanks,

    Where can I buy a roll of professional transfer paper for copying sewing patterns onto fabric? I would need the supplier to ship to Australia.

    I can only get small squares of Charcopy by clover. I would love something bigger to work with.

    Thanks

    Rosie.

    http://www.HeartToHeartFabrics.com is a great place to buy fabrics by the yard and scrapbooking supplies!

  20. Patti | | #20

    Two that should be added to online fabric stores:

    michaelsfabrics.com

    silkbaron.com

    Have had excellent experiences with both!

  21. Patti | | #21

    One other:

    farmhousefabrics.com

    I love farmhousefabrics.com. First heard of it while shopping at Joann's from another shopper. Does anyone know of a website where I can purchase white fabric for curtains? I love cafe (or tiered curtains) in bedrooms, and was stunned when I went shopping for new curtains. Not only are there curtain stores anymore, but I'm finding very few places where you can purchase curtains (especially with swags with ruffles)so I plan to make new ones.,

    I found http://www.fabricandart.com/HTML_files/Fabrics/dress%20silk.html. They are a small company with beautiful fabric. I've been happy with the amazing quality each time I have ordered and the prices are great.

  24. User avater
    WhidbeySewing | | #24

    Also http://reproductionfabrics.com has a great selection.

  25. naturalfiberclothing | | #25

    hi, You don't have my favorite: http://www.marcytilton.com Marcy has lots of carefully selected knits and wovens, many that I've never seen anywhere else.

    GinnyLynn | | #26

    Oh no! Now I have a whole list of places to spend my time and money on. Seriously, thank you for this. It's sometimes difficult to find quality and this list will be invaluable. I'm very glad to see that you have my absolute favourite listed - Waechter's Fine Fabrics in Asheville NC. Beautiful fabrics of the best quality and customer service like you've never experienced it before.

  27. AlexsMommy | | #27

    Thank you for this useful list. One of my favorite places to shop is http://www.murraythemonsterstore.com

    I've ordered from them for years. They have an incredible selection of fabric trims and their customer service is just great. Last week I placed and order on Monday, and I got it just 4 days later - Awesome!

  28. iuseathimble | | #28

    For vintage fabric, UrbanBurp in San Francisco - she has a retail store, too. Lots of wonderful bark cloth and other selections. http://www.urbanburp.com/

  29. ustabahippie | | #29

    I've bought fabric from Marcy Tilton because she has the best quality and taste. I just found some black stretch denim with 3% lycra at Fabrics.com, suggested to me by a member of the jeans-making group on "male pattern boldness." A fun blog!

    mendels.com - I buy lots of oilcloth there for my shopping bags. Service is great. HUGE selection of oilcloth.

    spandexworld.com - HUGE selection of all kinds of spandex. The go-to place for swimsuit fabric - not to mention athletic/sports wear and ice skating and dancing - and you can find all kinds for between $6 and $12/yard. Minimum yard cut and (I think) 3 yard minimum order (not sure about that second one). They tell you 2 way or 4 way stretch (very helpful) and also whether the fabric has sparkly stuff on it (in case you are making a swimsuit).

  32. bkryatty | | #32

    Also, fabric.com and Fabric Club are two different places. Fabric.com is simply that and service there is outstanding.

  33. IvyRoseCustom | | #33

    I am trying to find some fabric similar to "Carhartt" fabric for construction workers/farmers... Any thoughts?

  34. Floridagirl53 | | #34

    JoaniesJosh was looking for fabric to make cafe style curtains. If you want ready made curtains, try http://www.CountryCurtains.com. I have purchased from them in the past and was happy with the product.

    Rosies sewnstuff was looking for pattern paper. I have had a great deal of luck with Sewable Swedish Tracing Paper 29" x 10 yards that I purchased from http://www.birchstreetclothing.com. Once I get my pattern adjusted I will trace the final version on this cloth/paper to use for future. Holds up well.

  35. Glorydaze | | #35

    I'm looking a for a good source for novelty belt buckles. I can easily find smaller buckles, but I'm looking for 1", 2", and larger. Specifically, right now I'm searching for a 2" mother of pearl (or light colored, like white or cream) slide (buckle without prong). Does anyone know a good source for items like these?

  36. namaskar | | #36

    FABRIC FAIRY..JUST GOT TWO DIFFERENT ORDERS AND LOVED THEM BOTH.. GOOD PRICES, GOOD QUALITY.. IT IS IN SUN PRARIE WI' THE FABRIC FAIRY

  37. PointPatou | | #37

    Furthermore, the "http://www.coltilde.com/" link is misspelled. I think this is supposed to be a link to a company called "Clotilde."

    Sorry, but mistakes like this are sloppy, unprofessional, and disrespectful of your readers's time.

  38. PointPatou | | #38

    The Greenberg and Hammer link you added is not for a site with fabric resources. It's various articles on costume-making.

    I was suspicious because the retail store closed quite some time ago.

    runwaygal | | #39

    For fine materials, french laces,and heirloom sewing supplies I am able to buy locally. Their website is great at http://www.sews.com. They have expanded to lots of quilting, embroidery supplies and great knits. Online I went to e-bay looking for silk taffetta last year after hours of searching individual online stores. http://www.bangockthaisilk.com was amazing. I actually got my material from Thailand in less than 48 hours. I whish I had time to search all these other companies that are listed

  40. ClawsyEE | | #40

    I love The Fabric Fairy in Wisconsin (www.thefabricfairy.com) for kids knits and bamboos. They have a good eye for fabric selection plus every time I call they're really nice.

  41. sewpeachy | | #41

    Thank you very much for the list. I will enjoy using this resource!

  42. Valerie102 | | #42

    Greenberg & Hammer has sadly shut down. I have no idea where to find another supplier that had as an extensive range of supplies as they did.

    Atlanta Thread Supply is another one not mentioned here. They have more professional products, and more specific to garment sewing.

  43. SewGuy2 | | #43

    Been shopping recently for fleece fabric for a service project I was working on and found good pricing and service at http://www.fleece-fabric.com
    Thought you might like to add them to your list.

    Arlene's Interiors offers a GREAT selection of fabrics, definitely should be added to this list! http://www.arlenes.com/drapery-and-upholstery-fabrics/

  47. user-3059980 | | #47

    Sadly, Waechter's bit the dust, and a couple of other go-to online sources have gone away too. The list needs updating.

    My favorite resource is Exquisite Fabrics: http://www.exqfabrics.com. To the person who wants pearl buckles, they used to have pearl buckles on the website but since they are updating the site I don't see them back on yet.

  48. Only_Organic | | #48
