Favorite Fabric Shops

People ask me all the time where I buy my fabric.  I rarely buy anything but solid colors and flannel at Joann's or Hobby Lobby.  I try really hard to support other Etsy shops, and then I've stumbled across a few other online stores as well.  Since everybody always asks, I thought I'd compile a list share my favorites with you!


1. {Fabric.com}
    Obviously, this isn't a new site to many of you.  Their prices aren't always the cheapest, but with their free shipping with any purchase over $35.00, I can buy a ton at once and it ends up being cheaper.  And their design boards make it easier to match patterns/colors/etc.

2. {Raspberry Creek Fabric}
  Raspberry Creek is one of my top picks.  They have such a huge selection with many cute bundles.  And, they are an Etsy shop with a large flannel selection.  I love my flannel!  They also have an Etsy seller discount which I really appreciate.

3. {Fabric Shoppe}
 I know.  Another fairly well known.  But I still can't help but love it!  I've managed to get some killer deals through The Fabric Shoppe by watching Twitter at *just the right time*.  Excellent customer service, super fast shipping...couldn't ask for more!

4. {Stitch Stash Diva}
 This is one of my new favorite finds!!  I just recently found Tayva's shop on Etsy, and I adore buying from her.  She is so excited about her shop and you really feel like each fabric you purchase from her is one of her personal favorites.  She is super cute and makes it really fun buying there!

5. {Three Dolls Fabric}
 I honestly don't know what I would do without Three Dolls Fabric.  I buy 99% of my Amy Butler fabric there (more specifically, Amy Butler's Wallflower and Full Moon dots - which I use to make our most popular {car seat cover ever}).  I don't know what I'll do when they run out of it!  They are always quick to do my custom orders and seem to get it out to me even faster. Love, love, love them!!

These last two shops I have just found in the last week, but have already placed orders through them.

 {Fashionable Fabrics} and {Hawthorne Threads}.

Fashionable Fabrics has a large selection and is really easy to shop.  They've categorized all their fabrics in several different ways (collection, manufacturer, designer, print) so it's easy to find exactly what you're looking for.  If I'm in the mood to make little boy things, I can look at all their fabrics especially geared for little boys.  Makes my life easier!

Hawthorne Threads is my newest find and I just placed my first order this week, actually.  However, I was able to find a specific fabric that everybody else was completely sold out of.  That makes me very excited!

So...the next time you find yourself needing fabrics, be sure to check out one of these shops!  If you're like me, you're bound to find something you love!!

Thanks for the sources! I'm familiar with a few of them but the rest were new to me. I also like to check out Marshall Dry Goods. www.marshalldrygoods.com
They have amazing prices and a pretty good selection of fabrics.

I love this list that you put together!!! Especially since most that you mentioned are sponsors for Sew-vivor! Question, are you able to buy any fabrics wholesale? Do you have any experience doing that?

Alyssa -
I needed this post! I am shopping now and wasn't sure where to go! What about upholstery fabric - where is the best place to go out of this list? I would love for you to come by my blog home and link up for my first party!

Stopping by from Nifty Thrifty. I consider myself to be such a fabric whore. I love fabric so this is a great resource to have for on-ling stores. It's been forever since I've bought but am getting bored with what's at the local store. Thanks for sharing the links. My fingers are crossed that you will share this at Sunday's Best going on now.

Thanks for the tip. I have a hard time buying fabric that I can't see in person. I don't know why. I will have to give these a shot! Thanks!
