How is this site doing for delivery and quality?
I need winter stash now that Fabric.com is having trouble.
This is last week they offer free shipping for orders of $50.
Easy way to scroll thru all their offerings?

Any favorite E-Bay or Etsy sites?
On Etsy you get a lot of Vintage when searching for "fabric yardage."

Fashion Fabrics Club is a great source for quality fabric at low prices but it is hit and miss and the shipping is by wagon train speed. If you have patience and don't mind a bit of risk it is worth a try.

I have purchased fabric from Thunderlily, Ebay, Etsy, Trim Fabrics and even Bonanza with pretty fast delivery.

Fabric.com has free shipping for orders of $35.00 or more according to their Home Page. It states it in the upper left-hand column just below the locater line.

I also see that they're having difficulties shipping orders within their usual time constraints due to an influx of orders. Good luck finding alternate sources for your winter stash.

Fashion Fabrics Club has a lot of fabrics to choose from. I have found the quality to be good, most of the time. That said, I have gotten some yucky stuff from them on occasion as well. Their shipping is slow, be prepared to wait. On the other hand, when there are out of stock of something, or have not as much as you order, they do email you and either tell you the order is cancelled, or to ask if you want a smaller cut. My biggest complaint is the pictures of the fabric, it's really impossible to tell what I'm going to get. But, it must be okay, because I keep shopping there and but a lot of fabric from them.

I took a chance and ordered two fabrics from Fabric.com just before midnight on October 2nd. Got an email this afternoon that my fabric is in the final stages of being shipped and will arrive on Monday, October 8th. After reading all the posts about Fabric.com, I am hoping that I will get both pieces and that they will be what I ordered. Never had any trouble with them but it seems many others have.
