Thanks for such a wonderful, thorough fabric store list! I live in a place where there's not much to choose from, and I would much prefer to order from a small shop than from Joann, etc. I book-marked each site you recommended. :) Thanks again!



Fabric Shack of Waynesville, Ohio. Recently went to online only thanks to the pandemic. 20,000 bolts. Great customer service. 150 miles away and to us it was worth the trip to go down individually.. We used to stop on our bus tour on the way to Paducah every year. One year I ordered fabric and made a blouse beforehand. When I wore it on the way down the clerk who cut the fabric recognized me by it. I had also ordered some fabric to be picked up in person that day.

You will tend to find a mix of quilters and garment sewers so there will be different weights of material on offer and you need to read the descriptions and ask questions to make sure the fabric will be right for your project.

Once you are a member of these facebook groups of course you can also sell your own fabric online to declutter your sewing space and make room for all your new bargains. I have another post all about 3 Ways to Sell Fabric Online.

But it is not just garment sewing fabrics that are sold as deadstock, you can also find quilting cotton on a lot of these websites or other types of fabric that can be used in both garment sewing and quilting like linen, denim, and chambray.

But by definition, there is a finite stock of these fabrics so you will still need to keep quantity in mind when buying. You can probably find yards of fabric at a time but you may not be able to come back the next week or month and buy more of the same.

If you are somewhere where these kinds of front yard sales are a common occurrence they are also a great place to look for fabric or items made of fabric that you can deconstruct and repurpose for quilting.

So if you are into repurposing and upcycling reclaimed fabric then there is no easier way to get your hands on some fabric than to ask around the people you know to see if anyone is going through a declutter and wants to offload some old clothes, bedding or towels.

Retail visitors from across the globe visit the warehouse to stock up on Marshall Dry Goods "Classics" line of cotton prints as well as thousands of other quilt fabrics, specialty sewing fabrics, batting, and more.

I agree on all points. You definitely want to properly collect and remit sales tax and retail has already shifted significantly in all sectors, including quilting, and that will only continue. I do have faith that excellent local shops will survive.

I am also thinking about opening a shop, I live in a small community and just recently our fabric store closed down not because of lack of business it was intertwined with a hardware store and they just decided to close the door. I am interested in did you open you shop and how did you get it started?

Marianne, I am considering opening a shop in a small town. The closest location to purchase fabric is 45 minutes away. Do you have any information on opening a shop. This article was the first one that I saw that was helpful.

I work in the fashion industry and specialize in apparel design, development, and mass production. I am used to purchasing wholesale fabric by the roll at 50-100 yards per roll. My biggest hesitation before starting my Etsy shop as a side project was how do I buy small quantities of wholesale fabric? Fast forward to about 6 months ago, I discovered most of these companies and was blown away by the fact that I could order 15 yard BOLTS at a reasonable per yard price. I had no idea and I have been in the fashion industry for over 12 years, sewing for myself for over 28!

Many quilters are in the pre-washing camp, but there are just as many who skip this step. Before you dive in and start pre-washing your quilting fabric, there are a few important things you should know.

Manufacturers of quilting cotton fabrics are well aware of color fastness concerns and have come a long way in tackling this problem. They check for color fastness several times throughout the manufacturing process to ensure that their dyes are completely set before their fabrics head out the door.

With a focus on product quality and customer service, we provide South Louisiana with a wide range of 100% cotton fabrics and essential quilting supplies. Our fabric selection includes over 9000 bolts of Quilt Shop Quality cottons. Specializing in Wide Backs(98"-120" wide) and Batiks. We offer piecing, long-arm quilting, and binding services, to help you finish your quilting projects.

Some fabrics bleed dyes when they get wet and can stain the other fabrics in your quilt. Dark, saturated colors and lower-quality fabrics are especially likely to bleed. Use this simple test to detect fabrics that bleed:

This 100% premium cotton quilting fabric is designed to mimic the look of pieced quilt blocks. The void space between the printing measures approximately 8 inches square and is the perfect size to use with Aunt Martha's or Stitcher's Revolution transfer patterns.

This fabric can be used to create tablecloths, pillowcases, table runners, or tea towels. Just cut them down to your desired size. Instructions are included for accurately piecing together multiple quilt tops for crib, twin, double/full, queen, and king size quilts.

The Cutie Tabletop Fabric Frame allows you to quilt to your heart's content in a much easier way, managing your fabric for you so you can enjoy the process more. This frame fits on top of a table or desk and is compatible with most sewing machines.

Free motion quilting is great, but what if you want to move your machine in a straight line without wavering?Enter channel locks! These accessories lock your machine in place so that it only moves front to back or side to side.

Select from various styles and configurations depending on your project requirements. From compact and portable to larger machines with extended capabilities, our fabric cutters ensure precise, consistent cuts every time. No do-overs necessary.

You really do need to pay attention to using the best quality fabric to fit the project you are planning. There is no need to use the best quilt shop quality fabric to make a decoration that will only be used one or two times and never washed, but if you are making an heirloom quilt that you will spend hundreds of hours on, you certainly want it to stand the test of time which requires quality products.

Fiber content is extremely important. All cotton fabrics for pieced quilts will be the easiest to stitch, will hold up well to use, and will also be the most breathable fabric for comfort when using your quilt in any climate. It is always best to avoid fabric that has polyester content for quilts as it rarely (if ever) meets flammability standards for bedding. If you try a burn test on the fabric to determine fabric content, polyester will generally cause black smoke and leave a plastic feeling edge where it was burnt. Polyester also tends to ravel more, which can be a devastating problem when your perfect 1/4" seam allowance ravels away and leaves you with holes in your quilt top. All cotton fabrics when burnt will make white smoke and will turn to ash rather than melting like polyester.

The weave of your quilt fabric is also very important. A loose weave will ravel more, will not wear as well, and is generally a characteristic of a lower quality product. If you can easily count the fibers, it is best not to use the fabric! Good quality fabric will be woven out of fine soft cotton that will not require lots of finishing products like stiff starch to keep it looking fresh and nice on the bolt. Lesser quality fabrics will generally be a bit "crunchy" feeling on the bolt, but when washed, the crunchy feeling may or may not leave which does not make for a very cuddly quilt. If the crunchy feeling does wash out, it generally leaves behind a very wrinkly fabric that is difficult to iron and work with.

The feel of your quilt fabric will make all of the difference in how enjoyable it is to make and use. Do you want to spend lots of time working with stiff fabric, or sleeping under a scratchy quilt? No one does! When purchasing fabrics you want to see if it feels good, and if you will be hand stitching (either piecing, appliqué, or quilting) take your needle to the store and see if it glides through the fabric nicely. There is nothing worse than spending your hard-earned money on fabrics and then struggling to make your quilt. Also avoid trying to use fabrics that were not meant to be part of a quilt - they will take the fun out of your project. I know that we all have to consider finances when choosing our supplies, but using something like a percale sheet as a backing can make quilt creation so difficult that you may never want to quilt again.

Check the backs of your fabrics the same way that you look at the front. The best quality fabrics will have backs that look very similar to the front, while lesser quality fabrics will generally have a white or grayish look on the back. Many good quality fabrics can be used with either side as the "right" side. Batiks for example often are so similar on the back and front that it is almost impossible to tell the "right" and "wrong" sides. This is especially helpful when you are making yo yos where the inside of the fabric will be seen. It is also very helpful for beginners to use fabric that looks great on both sides when piecing a quilt because it gives them one less thing to have to think about as they piece their first quilt. 041b061a72
