    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 like to shop online at Amazon and Borders. I also like to do a google search for information on things I’m interested in purchasing so I know I’m getting the best deal.

    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

    I shop online at Etsy.com, Amazon.com, shoes.com and sometimes fabric.com, but when it comes to fabric, I like to shop in person. I find it hard to get the right color and quality when shopping fabric online.

    2-step online shopping:

    - Local fabric shops (there is nothing like feeling and seeing fabric to judge it’s qualities).

    - search online for best deals
