So hard to choose my favorite online fabric shops, but I thought I’d try and share where I usually purchase fabric for my projects.

In support of small & local business, I try NOT to shop at Joann’s… but the store is only 10 minutes from my house, so I end up there more than I like for notions and random supplies. I prefer designer quilt fabrics, so I don’t find much at Joann’s for those projects (and they don’t have my favorite batting). Sometimes I buy fabric for binding at Joann’s, since I never decide until the quilt is practically finished.

I buy fabric online a lot… and I get so excited about getting mail πŸ™‚ My husband thinks it’s hilarious.

A new quilt shop opened up closer to me (30 minutes instead of 45 minutes), so maybe I’ll finally have a local quilt shop to support! Business in NJ is SO HARD guys, and I’m sure it’s worse for fabric shops, so I try to shop local as often as possible.

Friday Faves: Online Fabric Shops

  • FabricBubb.com : She makes custom bundles that are SO MUCH FUN. Follow her on instagram for great pictures of fabric πŸ™‚ She also carries ALL of the Kona Solids, so now you know where to find that perfect color. I kind of wish shipping was free, but don’t we all?
  • FatQuarterShop.com: Best place for precuts! But they also carry yardage. They have daily and weekly flash sales, so look out for those! With free shipping over $80, I usually try to stock up for a few projects at one time.
  • Fabric.com: I kind of feel bad mentioning this site, since it’s owned by Amazon. But it’s cheap, free shipping over $35, and carries pretty much everything. They do sell out of fabrics quickly, so watch out for what you want.
  • Shop In The Making: Free Shipping over $25! I found some of my favorite Kate Spain Canyon here, and ordered a bunch of fun fat quarters. Really cute packaging, too!
  • IndieSew.com: I haven’t actually bought fabric here, but I love that you can “Browse Creations” for every pattern, so you know what different patterns look like in each fabric. This is super important when you’re shopping online, and you don’t have the option to touch the fabric.

So that’s where I shop! If I’m looking for something specific, I’ll just search etsy and sometimes find a new favorite place πŸ™‚
