    I like Fabric.com because of the wide variety of fabrics for every project, notions and the selection of yarns for knitting is pretty good. It’s a sort of one-stop-shopping for the basics. But when I want something special I have to visit my local fabric store where nothing is ever thrown out for being out of fashion and there are shelves to the ceiling packed with a few generations worth of fabulous (and perhaps dusty) fabrics.

    I start with Amazon or etsy and then Bing search for anything I can’t find. Really depends what I’m looking for. But I sure like my Burda designs! Thank you!

    If it isn’t for something unique and handmade (I really try to go directly to the artist’s site or etsy/artfire) then do some massive searching to get the best price. Lots of Novica this year!!!

    Oh, I do a lot of shopping online. I live in a rural area so MOST of my shopping is online! Fabric.com, Amazon.com have their own buttons on my toolbar! VogueFabrics.com (I subscribe to the swatch service) and FashionFabrics.com are also favorites. For the kids in the family (and a certain DIL) BugFabrics.com comes in handy as does eQuilter.com. Ebay once in a while and Walmart.com and Costco.com every so often. But their stores are within a couple hour’s drive so I usually ship to store to save shipping. When I do shop online I try to meet what the goals are for free shipping, or in Amazon’s case I joined the PrimeClub. It was worth it since I usually buy something from them at least once a month!

    It depends on what I’m shopping for. I like fabric.com’s free shipping on orders over $35, I’ve purchased from e-bay, and e-quilter.com, as well as J and O fabrics, JKM ribbon, some vendors on Amazon, and Etsy, it just depends on what the project is.

    Like others before me, I too use Google when shopping online. The shopping feature makes it easy to find the lowest price for a specific item. It was through Google that I was able to find a site that had a fabric perfect for a project that I couldn’t find anywhere near me. www.thefabricfairy.com

    I have shopped eBay, amazon.com, lowespartscom, and other parts places. If I am looking for something specific, I will do a lot of online comparison and product review shopping. I also like to window shop on the McCall’s-Vogue site.

    I most often shop online at Amazon but that’s usually concerning books. Other than that, I Google what I need and find the lowest price at the most reputable shop. Fabric, I prefer to buy in person anywhere I can get it for a good price but I’m not totally adverse to buying online if I’m looking for something out of reach. I would probably buy a machine used online or new, direct from a dealer. To inspire and tempt myself, I go to Etsy. I would be ecstatic to own a serger; it would really help my small business blossom into reality.

    For fabric, I typically check out Fabric.com, which has a good starting selection. I recently starting working on underthings, and Laceheaven.com has super amazing, fast-shipping, and cheap stretch lace with lots of colors! Yay! If it is non craft-related, I usually start with Amazon, Overstock, or even just google the item and see what comes up.
