Hi Everyone! One of my most asked questions is, where is the best place to buy quilting fabric online? This will be a mega post to give you lots of options from great businesses to buy quilting fabric online. This list was compiled from shops I have used myself or heard good things about and shops recommended by my community. If you would like to add any to the list, please leave a comment and I will add it! I would like to only have solid recommendations here for people to try 😉
Online AND Brick and Mortar
This first list is of brick and mortar shops that also have a significant online presence. This way, you are still supporting those small local businesses, even if you purchase quilting fabric online. All of these shops whether online only or combined, they have a personal taste and style. It’s helpful to search around and find shops that carry many of the styles that you prefer.
Superbuzzy (my local shop, Kelly is the best!)
Missouri Star Quilt Company (not sure this counts as a small biz anymore, but it started that way;))
Itch’n to be Stitch’n (Staunton IL)
Cary Quilting Company (Cary NC)
These are online only shops, but still local small businesses. Sometimes you can get great deals from theses shops because they don’t have the physical store overhead.
Westwood Acres (great shop, specializes in precuts and bundles)
Individual Etsy Shops (often a great way to find a specific quilting fabric online)
Online … but.
These are not small businesses, but often have great deals and prices. Sometimes lacking in the customer service department.
Fabric.com (especially bad customer service and difficult to return things)
The Workroom (Physical and online in Toronto)
Quilt Thyme (Physical and online in Kingston, ON)
*Several Canadians have mentioned that Missouri Star Quilt Company has great shipping rates to Canada and they find it’s not too expensive with the exchange rate to shop through them.
United Kingdom Shops
So far my community from the United Kingdom has mentioned shopping at local shops to be the best.
