    I shop everywhere online! A few favorites are Pink chalk Fabrics and FatQuarterShop! I’d love to add a serger to my sewing space!

    I have shopped at Equilter, Ebay, Amazon, JoAnn’s, Distinctive, Fashion Fabrics, Joggles and M&J Trim to name a few. Prices, selection and time-saving are the main reasons I like to shop online.

    I love to shop online. I find amazing deals on grocery, clothes, etc. from several mommy blogs. My main source for free or nearly free items is craigslist.org or freecycle.com. I purchase my fabrics locally because I need to touch them and see the detail in person.

    Amazon and ebay for the majority. I’ve never yet bought fabric online yet but I often find fabric sites through google which I spend time drooling over.

    Just about anywhere. I do a lot of comparison pricing (including shipping costs, which can be more then the item!). I try to buy from the little guy when I can, you have to support our entrepreneurs.

    I’ve shopped online for fabric at joanns.com. Done a lot of shopping on Ebay and Amazon. I like shopping online, and I agree shipping CAN jack up the cost. I usually justify it with comparing it to the cost of gas and frustration of shopping around searching for THE thing. Plus I love receiving packages at home. It’s like getting a gift, even if it is to myself.

    I work with a tight budget, so I don’t always have the luxury of buying new. I go to sewitsforsale, shoppersrule, ebay, overstock, joann’s. It’s allowed me to get some great deals on machines and accessories and experience techniques that I otherwise would not have been able to.

    Amazon mostly, for other things it depends – often I’ll know that i want something from a particular shop so use their website.

    I would say Amazon gets a good portion of my shopping attention for research and buying. I have bought most of my sewing and crafting books from their website using their smaller book vendors to buy new or almost new books; Ebay, Homesew.com, Clotilde.com, shall I go on? What the heck did we do before the internet?

    I like Etsy because there’s all sorts of unique stuff there, but I see a lot of other good ideas in this thread I’ll have to try.

    Usually I search for a specific item and then look for the best price with cheapest shipping. Sometimes its ebay other times its great retailers that happen to be nearby! Like my local sewing shop in Sunbury!

    Ebay has surprised me on more than one occasion with how useful it can be. Otherwise Jaycotts.co.uk are great for lots of bits and pieces.

    joanns.com or michaels.com when they have free shipping offers. I agree with many of the comments below, free shipping is a plus!
