    I search for a good bargain throughout Amazon shops, Ebay, PriceGrabber and similar sites; for specific sewing-related purchases I sometimes also use Jo-Ann.com, or Etsy if I’m looking for something unique/handmade. Happy shopping.

    I love shopping online and looking for the best deal! I typically google if I’m looking for a specific item and I want to know the best price. Otherwise, I use Etsy, fabric.com, ebay, hancock fabrics, and amazon. Sometimes, I just enjoy “window shopping” online to know whats out there and then I mark them in my favorites.

    Mostly Etsy and Ebay for my crafting needs. Uline for my shipping needs. I hate to admit it, but I shop a lot at Walmart.com for birthday and Christmas gifts. They have some of the cheapest and most efficient shipping I have ever come across. I sent my granddaughters a little Tikes table and chair set for Christmas and it arrived in 4 days and cost $3.97 to ship.

    I shop mostly at Amazon and etsy. I really trust Amazon and etsy just has the most amazing, interesting items. I am never disappointed. Just a quick note to my burda friends who shop online: there was a recent nytimes article about predatory online vendors (who actually provoke negative comments by ripping off customers – and harrassing them, calling them non-stop, stalking them (no joke!) – to make their google ratings rise). If you are buying something from a new or small online vendor, you should always do a google search re: consumer rating on the vendor! I also buy my plane tickets through kayak and clickandfly. I would looooooove a serger!

    Etsy is by far the best place for shopping, at least when I’m looking for pretty things! When I need something special I usually Google it and buy from the Internetshop with the right things at the best prices.

    I shop at Joann’s and many online stores for fabric, buttons, trims, patterns etc. i often visit some designer fabric stores in Miami,Florida. They have gorgeous silks. When we traveled I purchased many fabrics in the countries we visited such as China, France, Italy, Japan, Switzerland and many more. I am still using many of those fabrics.

    I shop through a bunch of places online – I actually bought my Brother sewing machine AND my Brother embroidery machine from Overstock.com. I don’t typically shop for fabric online because I like to be able to touch/feel it in person! I also my all my notions and other things online from random stores.

    I’m trying to do most of my shopping locally, but it’s not easy in my small town so I end up online a lot of the time. Usually I just start out with a Google search and follow the trail from there. For books, it’s straight to Amazon.

    I’ve mentioned this in a previous giveaway but I shop online for things not available locally, like knits or special tools. I own two brother machines, regular and serger, so for parts, brothermall.com or allbrands.com. Fabric, in the past, from EOS, Vogue Fabrics, Fashionista Fabrics, Gorgeous Fabrics, Lucy’s Fabrics etc. Or on Pattern Review’s classifieds. Amazon.com for one of my machines. Interfacing at Fashion Sewing Supply. Patterns directly from the companies; Vintage patterns from Lanets Living, eBay or etsy. Books at Amazon.com or Taunton. Sewing magazines either directly from the company/distributor such as GLP news for Burda or through sellers online or on Pattern Review’s classifieds. That’s it pretty much for online shopping. I go to well-known places because I can’t afford to take chances and also they need to take international credit cards.

    I shop on Amazon.com. I look at fabric.com a lot, but haven’t bought anything from them. I prefer to buy fabric in person.

    To buy fabric I always wind up driving 48 miles to Joanne’s.

    For everything else I may shop til my fingers about drop off, but it seems like I always wind up at Amazon.

    They consistenly have the cheapest prices.

    I don’t shop much on-line. Shipping and duty are very expensive to Canada. I’m fortunate to live in an area where I can buy almost any kind of fabric or notion my heart could desire. Love, love, LOVE the serger! :D
