    I shop on amazon. I look for the best prices and free shipping. Or I try to order as much stuff as it takes to get free shipping.

    I research on google to compare prices and shipping to get the best deal possible although it depends on how desperate I am to get it.

    I love Etsy and Amazon. I also check shopGoodwillstore.com, dharmatrading, taunton press but usually I just google what I’m looking for and then try to find it locally. I live near downtown LA so the fabric district is where I go for any sewing supplies or fabric and even parts for my grandma’s sewing machine.

    for sewing, patterns on-line but fabric in stores. same with knitting – yarns in person, but patterns on-line wherever.

    I’ve recently been buying more items online as stores are just not able to keep all of the inventory stocked and it is more economical for the warehouse to hold the stock and ship. To encourage this offers of free shipping or discounted merchandise is offered.

    I find this a bit sad as the aesthetic of actually seeing and feeling items is lost and I believe that if this becomes too much of a trend that the stores will offer even less or close and the employees will lose even more work. I’ve shopped at a national brand under-clothing store.

    I’ve been sewing for more than 40 years and I think I’m really ready to start sergng seams…I’m soooooo tired of pinking, zigzaging, hiding seams under linings, and torturing myself with french seams….they add so much time to my projects and I’m ever so slightly OCD, so no seam ever goes unnoticed, lol! I still have the first machine I bought myself way back in 1977 (one of the 1st electronics) and I gaze longingly at the sergers when I go to the fabric store or browse online, but alas, it’s not in the budget.

    I’ve been getting fabric at Fabricworm and NearSea Naturals, and other random things at Etsy, although I think I’ll have to start buying in bulk…

    I always check EBates.com first to see if they have site that offers what I am looking for. If I can get cash back on something I intend to purchase anyway, it seems like the most logical route for me. Besides cash back, I often find coupons for free shipping and percentages off. Worth the look!

    I’ve just started sewing so now I have lots of ideas about where to buy sewing paraphernalia from. I did buy a sewing book from Abebooks.com – a really good website for cheap books.

    I don’t shop online, because of a simple reason – I need to see/sense in any way the item I buy….

    When I am looking to purchase, I use the internet for research, that’s how I discovered at the time I was looking for an embroidery machine, Janome was the only one who had a machine that only does embroidery, as I already owned 3 Janome’s it was a great fit for my sewing needs.

    I do most of my shopping at Etsy.com, it’s great for fabric, buttons and fun unique items.
