This is going to be a short post - I'm determined to sew today. For those of you who've made a vow to not buy fabric in 2007 you'd better stop reading now.
I want to mention a few of my favorite online shops. I order online a lot because the quilt shops that carry the kind of fabric I really like are a significant drive away and I can get there only a few times a year.
My most favorite shop of all is Z&S Fabrics. It is run by a mother and daughter team - Carol and Meghan - and their service is phenomenal! Their prices are also some of the best you'll find anywhere for first quality fabric. Z&S stands for Zooks and Sauders, two well known Amish quilt shops in Pennsylvania. Take a look if you aren't familiar with them - you'll be glad you did. Meghan has also started a blog - Meghan's Material World - in which she talks about their experiences running the online store, and her own quilting too. I'm hoping to bring more readers to her blog my mentioning it here.
Two other shops that I like a lot are the Fat Quarter Shop and Homestead Hearth. The first is a great source for fat quarter packs, charm packs, and the new Moda Jelly Rolls. The second has the best kits I know of - they are overly generous with their pieces of fabric and everything labeled perfectly as to what it's for. Both offer outstanding service 99% of the time.
If you are in the mood to shop - or have some Christmas money burning a hole in your pocket - I encourage you to take a look.
Now I'm going to sew!
