The Ultimate Guide to the Best Fabric Shops Online

Best-Fabric-Shops-Online

Picture this: you’re scrolling through Instagram, lalala, like’n a few pics...lalala...oh look, your cousin is on a boat...lalala...cool! handmade purses; I should learn how to make purses...lalala...WAIT. ERRYBODY HOLD UP! That fabric. I love it. I need it.

Now the internet scramble. Where can I get it...also while still sitting on the couch watching Netflix?

This scenario plays out weekly for me. I see fabric. I need fabric. Gimme that fabric.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a go-to list of online fabric shops? With ready access to online inventory, you drool over a swatch and within 10 minutes, you find it and order a yard...or two or three!

WARNING: Once you read this list, there is no going back. You will become aware of the hottest spots on the web for buying fabric from your favorite designers. Bulk purchases may occur. Stashes may grow.​

Best-Fabric-Shopping

I should also point out that most of this list was made by you and for you. A couple days ago I asked quilters on IG to tell me where they love to shop and this list was the result. There are some larger fabric companies, but also some quality small shops run by husband and wife duos, mothers and daughters, friends, and single girl bosses workn' hard to provide us the best that’s out there.

A lot of the smaller shops started with a love of sewing and grew into a passion for entrepreneurship and customer service. Because some of these shops are small and even run out of the owner’s homes, they can be hard to find with a quick Google search – which is a real bummer because it gives me such a warm fuzzy feeling to support small fabric shops.

My goal with this list is to connect the dots between the best fabric online and creative, fabric-hungry quilters. Now onto the list! Enjoy 🙂

    Awesome list! There are actually a few that I hadn’t come across yet, and I’m excited to investigate them!

  2. Sharon T says:

    I am hoping this is only a beginning og a list. There are so many good ones missing, such as Intrepid Thread, Westwood Acres, Stash Fabrics to name a few.

  3. Jennifer Moore (Sewing Report) says:

    Thanks for sharing some of your top fabric spots Suzy! I was unfamiliar with about half of them, so look forward to checking them out and seeing what they have stocked!!! Some of my go-to places tend to be Fat Quarter Shop and Craftsy as well – they have pretty good sales!

  4. Melissa says:

    Thanks for compiling this list! The internet is a huge place and it’s always daunting to sift through everything. I’m sure there are a ton more great places but there’s always room to add! Looking forward to checking these out. my wallet though, has different thoughts..

  5. Lindsey says:

    Awesome resource!! Thanks for taking the time to put it together! Just discovered a bunch of shops I hadn’t heard of until now!

  6. Virginia says:

    Though the fabric is a bit pricey I love the customizable option at Spoonflower.com. You can shop through other people’s designs or make your own and they print it on your choice of fabric!

    • Debbie says:

      Two people I know have had their quilts ruined by using fabric from Spoonflower, different quilters and different quilts. It’s too coarse and when the quilter’s needle went through it, it pulled the fabric, leaving lines without color through the back of the quilt. Just be careful. It’s awfully expensive fabric to have problems like that.

  7. Brenda says:

    Wow, what a great list — many new-to-me. I’m so happy to have found you via Instagram. Several of your selections have Liberty of London, but my very favorite shop for Liberty is Thimbleanna’s etsy shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/Thimbleanna). Her prices are the lowest anywhere — which is great since Liberty of London is so expensive. She has other fun fabrics too!

  8. John Young says:

    Wow! This list gave me so many great places to buy fabric. The only change I would make is adding stash builder box. They have a large variety of fabrics and a great subscription box that delivers fabric and materials to your door step every month. They also do a lot of charity projects with the money they make from each purchase. They use 20% of the money to make quilts and blankets for kids in need. I really think everyone should check out this site and subscribe to their box.

  9. Sally says:

    Suzy – I wish I had a picture of it, but I recently went to a friends house and they made an outdoor quilt to cover an outdoor couch. It wasn’t really for snuggling up outside but was used as an amazing cover for their outdoor couch. It had amazing colors and she used some amazing die cut shapes to make an amazing art piece. It made me think of you. I asked her where she got her material and she said she got it from http://www.MarineVinylFabric.com. You should consider doing something like this and blogging about it. it was so unique and beautiful.

  10. Chloe says:

    Do you accept merchandise from the businesses you recommend on your site? It would be helpful if you were transparent on this issue.

    I love http://www.fabricshack.com They have the cheapest Kona solids around ($5.50/yd) and a wide selection of other fabric. They offer half price shipping (so 3.50 for a flat rate Priority envelope). And they’re fast. I’ve ordered many times, and can not recommend them enough. They also have a brick and mortar store in Waynesville OH.

    Just Go Sew. Raquel has a pop up shop on Instagram @justgosew_popup_shop as well as an Etsy storefront and .com. She has a curated selection (Carolyn Friedlander, various Essex linen lines and some other collections). Her prices are great, and occasionally you can snag great deals in the pop up. Fast and friendly.

    Etsy in general as well. Lots of great small shops with different selections.

    • Kristine says:

      I second your recommendation for Fabric Shack. Great customer service and very timely. They are offering free shipping at the present – because everyone needs a bit of a break right now. Bonus points! Their brick and mortar is also wonderful.

  13. Marieke says:

    Oh, also, Llama fabrics closed up shop, I believe due to an international move. A sad day, they were one of my favorite Etsy stores.

    KiwiFabric, janum, ModernQuilter are also great Etsy stores.

I like her. Jeanette lives and works from a farm in Bombala NSW Australia

  16. Muyiwa says:

    I’m about to ask a question.
    Are fabrics from China not good?
    And also where is the best country to get a cotton stretch fabric for making underwear?

    • Suzy Quilts says:

      To the first question, I wouldn’t say that fabrics from China are not good. In fact, probably half the clothing in our wardrobes is from China. A lot of quilting cotton sold in the USA is made in India and Japan. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if big box stores manufactured their fabric in China.

      As for the second question, I really couldn’t say. Underwear-making is not something I’ve explored. Good luck on your search!

      • Andrea says:

        Suzy, I am sorry but I understand that China has few conservation laws pertaining to dumping dyes into their rivers. I love fabric and I know much is manufactured there. It just worries and scares me that some of their practices might harm our planet. I am hoping this changes as some of the fabrics from there are beautiful.

  17. Brit Sworner says:

    This is awesome, thank you. APC Fabrics is a good one too. They have a large selection and offer sustainable and premium-quality fabrics like tencel, modal, bamboo along with other major fibers like linen, cotton & wool

  18. Jennie Weaver says:

    Hi, I am a new Online Quilt Shop owner. Am I reading everything correct, that you are a resource for people to find online shops? If so, what is the cost and how do I get started? Thank you for your time.

    • Suzy Quilts says:

      Hi Jennie, this post is a free resource for quilters to find quality fabric shops. You can tell us about your shop here in the comments if you like. If you’re interested in advertising on suzyquilts.com, send an email to info@suzyquilts.com. Thanks!

  20. Gretchen in Mexico says:

    I have had great luck buying cotton for quilts, over and over, with eQuilter.com. Excellent customer service, fast shipping, and (to my eye) excellent representation of colors and designs on the website, plus ability to search by color, designer, or design such as beach, space, animals, large floral, small floral, southwest, MANY more. I love their design board!

  26. Deniece Moody says:

    Marshall Dry Goods has great options, too. I have ordered (more than I need!) from them – and it is good quality at low prices.

  27. Nicola says:

    I like woolwarehouse.co.uk, they started out selling yarn as the name suggests but they carry a huge range of fabrics now too, including all the Kona solids and Moda Bella solids. Their online shop is blissfully logical and easy to navigate and search, which is more than I can say for quite a few online fabric shops.

    • Bay says:

      As a Brit I just checked out Pretty Fabrics and Trims and they don’t appear to sell fabric, just patterns, kits and haberdashery.
      I’d like to recommend online in the UK: ‘Sew & Quilt’ as an excellent place to pick up Liberty and retro quilting fabric.
      ‘Wool Warehouse’ as mentioned above.
      ‘Fabric Fox’ for a wide range of current fabrics.
      ‘The Village Haberdashery’ for something different and brilliant for garment making.

      And there are so many more!

  28. Leisa White says:

    I would love my small business to be included! I’m a Brit with a US based online store specializing in British fabrics, patterns and seeing notions. I carry Liberty of London Tana lawns and Liberty quilting cottons, William Morris prints and contemporary British designers.

    Thank you!

  29. Karen Cooper says:

    Serendipity Woods in US (Michigan) is outstanding. Great selection. Excellent and quick service. Personable touches.

  30. Jody says:

    Quilt Lizzy in Warrenton NC has a great online store and they usually ship the same day. Great selection of fabrics, precuts and tools! Check it out!

  31. Linda P says:

    Thank you so much for this great list! Such beautiful fabric. I want to spend time at each site, so I will view one a day. Again, thank you!!!

  32. Ally says:

    Does anyone recommend a specific shop for international shipping? There is so much US based stuff. Us poor quilters elsewhere have to pay mega shipping costs sometimes…. If anyone has experience on who does the cheapest international shipping that would be a big help. Thanks

  33. Irene Heikes says:

    Fabricshack.com is a fantastic store with so much fabric and great prices. Sadly they have gone online only to my great dismay. I have shopped there for years and they always have new quilts on the walls. Jenny and her mom ( they own the shop) are great people and so were all the sales people. Give their site a look. They also offer half price shipping.

  34. Sacha says:

    Crimson Tate! Heather Givans is the reason I’m a quilter—like, she literally taught me how to—and owns the cutest shop with great fabrics and outstanding customer service. I would love it if our local source of modern fabric in Indianapolis made it through this global crisis thanks to online sales.

    http://www.crimsontate.com

  35. Angie says:

    @fabricstork in the US. They are launching a new website on August 31, 2020 and giving away a new pattern to celebrate. I’ve purchased several kits for Suzy’s quilts there. And!… they send such adorable packages that always make me smile!

  36. Bailey says:

    Hadn’t come across most of these actually. I did a scramble last week to get the exact Kona shades I need. Ended up buying from 7 different shops, and that’s how I discovered Fabric Bubb! They were super fast with shipping, too.

  37. Joy Phelps says:

    Great resource. Thanks. If you haven’t checked out one of the newest online sites for beautiful fabric and helpful blogs, go to quiltedandwoven.com! You won’t be disappointed. It’s owned by a delightful mother and daughter team who bend over backwards to make you happy. The daughter has designed some beauties. Check them out. Always good sales too!

  38. Laura says:

    Here’s another really good one: Gossypium Quilt Shop, Gossypiumquilt.com
    They curate a fabric bundle each day…endless beautiful choices, great service. Have ordered from them many times

  39. Kimberly says:

    Thanks very much for the list! It’s apparent Canada has a long way to go to compete with online fabric shopping.
    The exchange is so horrendous now that purchasing from the States is not possible for me. So sad a country this big is so behind. I guess it’s the big in size but not population that keeps our prices so high.
    I would like to add Blackbird Fabrics in B.C. to the list and Country Clothesline in ON for quilters out there. They are highly recommended amongst Canadians for online shopping.
    Happy sewing!

  40. Lillian says:

    Hi Suzy!
    Loved having a look at the list you have, found some stores I don’t know about! (Very exciting!)
    I have a store that is online and has a physical shop as well, located in Mornington Peninsula, Australia. It’s called “Treehouse Textiles”. They are amazing! They are a quilt shop, they have amazing patterns and fabrics and they have a lovely selection of Liberty fabrics too!
    They also do workshops and their online store has been keeping me going during lockdown.
    http://www.treehousetextiles.com.au

  41. Shannon says:

    Thanks for this Fabulous list!!!! I have shopped with 3 and looking forward to checking out other stores. I am new to quilting and I keep finding more gorgeous fabric and patterns that I want to try.

  42. Ida says:

    Great list! I love my LQS, HipStitch. They have their entire store contents online. They have a great selection and a good selection of sugar skulls and novelty fabrics. Most importantly, their customer service will not be beat; they are amazing.

  43. Jackie Ortegon says:

    I love this, I love shopping local to support small businesses and see my quilt shop friends. I also love online shopping. I love certain things about each shop, they all have feature different collections, I love the different bundles they create. And I definitely feel led to support them all. And why not, they provide what we want and we want them to be able to continue to do so. Support them all in some way! Someone is going to sell you fabric, spread the love!

  44. Myrtle Shackleton says:

    I love Bugfabric.com – an online-only shop based in Redmond WA. They specialize in novelty fabrics but carry lots of other current collections, as well. Their customer service is great.

  45. Allie says:

    The Workroom (based in Toronto Canada) is AMAZING!! Check them out and please consider adding to your list. They always have the loveliest Fabrics and crafts!
