Where did you get that fabric???

by Sherrie on May 13, 2010

One of the most frequently asked questions at YCMT, YCQT & SWAK is …. “Where did you get that fabric?”.   I am here to answer your burning questions of fabric desire.   :)  The answer does depend on whether you want to see it in person or buy it online.

Locally or in person:  Google the words ” fabric store” with your city and state and it should pull up all the local stores in your area.  The larger chains like JoAnn’s do not usually carry the high end fabric designers.  It will be the smaller local quilting stores that should carry those fabrics.

Online: Some of our favorites sites…

- www.fabric.com is running an amazing discount for the DIY Dish viewers.  Check out this link for the discount code:  www.thediydish.com.

-www.fashionablefabrics.com

-www.fabricworm.com

-www.artgalleryfabrics.com

You may also be wondering what fabric designers are fun to follow.  Here is a small list of some favorites:

-Sandi Henderson, Michael Miller, Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, Robert Kaufman, Paula Prass, Jennifer Paganelli,  Joel Dewberry,  Patty Young, Kate Spain, Lila Tueller & Anna Marie Horner.

What other online fabric stores have you found?

Thanks for bringing a few new shops to my attention. I would also add fatquartershop.com and equilter.com to your list.

Moda and Studio E are two of my favorite designers. My favorite place to shop online has always been equilter.com. However, since watching your latest episode, I’ve been enjoying browsing around fabric.com too!

I also love http://www.hancocks-paducah.com

They always have great quilting fabric on sale, I’ve even gotten complete sets in their sales area before.

I think you listed all my favorite fabric designers but I have to add http://www.quilthome.com for fabric on-line.

I frequent a couple of sites. One is Happy Apple Quilts, another is Connecting Threads. However for a great list of shops, 100+, you should look at fabshophop.com. It is an online shop hop website where you can win gift certificates, but the list of shops is worth just signing up even if you don’t shop hop.

Happy Stitching!
