finding fabric

mucci | Posted in General Discussion on

I just introduced myself, Iam Shirley, I do have a question:

We know about Joann Fabrics, and Hancock fabrics, I do visit

them but not able to find fabric I need.  I have visited sites on

the internet and have been happy with the results.  I would appreciate

other fabric outlets. 

 

Thanks

Shirley

    Hi Shirley! Welcome to the forum, hope you will enjoy it and join in our conversations!  We learn so much from each other every day. 

    I like http://www.equilter.com and get their newsletter too, but their forum is quilter focused and very strict quidelines.  I love it here at Gatherings because we are free to really get to know each other.  Mary

    http://www.fabric.com/ is a great place to shop online. 

    Check out their $1. and $2./yard sales - the fabrics are really high quality despite the low price and they usually offer coupons on shipping so look for those before ordering.

    depending on the need.....look in your area,there may be some small stores that have great prices.......and i have found some really nice fabrics online, posted at auctions like ebay....unless you have to 'touch' the fabric......
    and people give away fabrics all the time online at places like 'craigslist.org' and 'freecycle.org'....
    everything from patterned knits to quilt fabrics, fleeces and even suitings..

      Another good place to look for interesting fabrics is resale shops - smaller ones as well as the big 3: Goodwill, Salvation Army and St. Vincent's - and garage sales. Never a guarantee if or what or how much you'll find, but the hunt is usually fun, anyway! Welcome to the forum! Hope you have fun AND learn things!

    Try Sawyer Brook, Clinton MA. They are on the net and are positively delightful people. The fabrics are beautiful. They have some great bargain pieces,  as well as, Ambiance, Hang Loose, some China silk, silk organza etc. fabulous buttons, great interfacings, zippers, Metrosene thread and they can match what you buy. There are some gorgeous wools and silks, cottons, linen etc.  depending on season.  They do beautiful clothing fabrics. They have a great swatching service. As you might be able to tell, I have become a big disciple.  They wonderful giving advice on appropriate matches of fabric,interfacing and linings. They can make you think outside the box.

    We have lost so many fine fabric stores in this (Boston area) that Sawyer Brook is a real find. We need to keep them in business. Good luck.
