Fabric source

DONNAKAYE | Posted in General Discussion on

I don’t do a lot of online shopping (got so much stash I should be ashamed of myself), but I’m looking for a (reasonably priced) site that sells beautiful suitings — woolens, worsted, gabardines, nubbies, and the like.  Anyone know where I should begin?  Have you had much success ordering online?  Also, has anyone ordered interfacings online?  If so, where?  I’m sure there’s tons of web sites, but, naturally, I’m looking for the best value for the buck…..thanks….d.

    I don't know what you consider reasonable, everyone's price point is different. That said I order on line quite a bit and here are my favorites.
    emmaonesock.com I order from her a lot. She is at the high end, not that her prices are bad, they are not, but she carries top quality and she has beautiful taste. She offers free samples and very good service.
    She also takes back cut goods.
    manhattanfabrics.com. This is Paron fabrics who I have been buying from in NYC for many years. Good quality and good prices.
    gorgeousfabrics.com She is new,and she posts over at pattern review as well as writing for Threads. She has a very good blog, http://gorgeousthings.blogspot.com I have ordered a few things from her, but I like a slightly higher level of fabric if I am making a high end outfit copy. If you are on the east coast the service is fairly good. She will send 5 samples for free.
    Fabric Mart. They are hit and miss, but the prices can be very good.
    There are others, but these are the ones I have personal knowledge of.
    Oh, one more. They do not have fabrics per se, on the website, but you can call or e mail for samples Banksvilledesignerfabrics.com They have high quality and good prices. I have ordered from them for years, well before internet go so big.

      Thank you so very much.  There's just so many of them out there.  Where to begin, huh?  I'll go surfing them all first chance I get.

        Hi. I did not see anyone mention Sawyerbrook.com they have outstanding fabrics. Also, Voguefabricsstore.com has good prices and gives coordinating fabric groups. LOVE Emma One Sock also, they always have nice stuff.

          You beat me to it. I was going to suggest Sawyer Brook. They have wonderful suitings and coordinates. solo

            They (Sawyer Brook) are having a huge Labor Day sale this weekend. Very dangerous!!

    I would suggest looking at http://www.michaelsfabrics.com/zegna.php

    where they have high-end fabrics (woolens, silks, cottons, etc) but especially when they have a sale, they can be surprisingly reasonable.  Right now they are selling bundles for $4.50 a yard (Zegna Italian fabrics) and half-price Zegna fabrics from the website.  Most are quite conservative wovens, but the quality is great.
