30 More (and Then Some) Great Places to Buy Fabric Online

January 23, 2012

By far the most popular post on this blog (I’ll be honest, it’s the one that brings in almost all of the traffic) was the post I did on great places to buy fabric online. I got dozens of responses from readers about other online sites they loved and felt should be included, so I decided to revisit the topic and post some of the reader favorites that I didn’t originally include on my rather limited list. If there are other sites that you think should make this newer list, let me know and I’ll add them! And here they are, in no particular order.

UPDATE: I do appreciate all the feedback, but many of the sites people suggest were covered in my original post. Please look there, too: 30 Great Places to Buy Fabric Online. Also, please keep the comments and suggestions civil. There’s no need to get snobby/mean!

  1. Hawthorne Threads: Many people commented on my original post that they couldn’t believe I hadn’t included this site on my list. After checking it out, I can’t believe I didn’t either! They have an amazing selection of fabrics and offer flat rate shipping. Thanks for the heads up!
  2. TwentyOne7This site, formerly Fabric Alley, has updated their collections and is now carrying a great assortment of high-end fabrics.
  3. Thousands of Bolts: Quilters are sure to love this site! I’m a big fan of how they have the fabrics organized by color, which makes it easy to find something that will coordinate with any project.
  4. Harts Fabric: Harts carries a great collection of designer fabrics (think Marc Jacobs, Missoni) so if you’re in the market for some fancy threads, this site might be one of your best bets.
  5. The Fabric Co.: I am pretty sure that this site is geared towards interior designers, but even us amateurs could probably find a few heavy-duty fabrics worth making into pillows or slipcovers.
  6. Shabby Fabrics: If pretty, girly fabrics are your thing, you will think you have died and gone to heaven with this online retailer. They also have a good assortment of seasonal and quilt-worthy patterns as well.
  7. True Up: This site isn’t a place to buy fabric so much as a blog that you shouldn’t buy fabric without first consulting. You’ll find updates on sales and posts about the latest awesome fabrics.
  8. Crafty Mamas: A bit confusing to navigate (that sidebar is NUTS), this site nonetheless is a super awesome place to find fun and youthful prints that the little ones, or let’s be honest, you, will adore.
  9. Jubilee Fabric: I have to admit that a lot of what this store carries is not so much my style, but for those who quilt or who appreciate more rustic-looking fabrics, their selection is pretty great.
  10. Connecting Threads: This site is pretty darn cool! Not only do they have a great selection, they also offer free shipping over $50 and no-hassle returns. You can’t beat that.
  11. Fabric Hound: They carry some really interesting fabrics on Fabric Hound, including a number of very cute Japanese imports. Love the cute buttons and iron ons as well.
  12. Crafty Planet: They’ve got a lot of the big names in fabric here, like Amy Butler, Kokka, and Alexander Henry, as well as a pretty solid selection of other prints as well.
  13. The Fabric Fairy: There are a whole lot of great fabrics to be found here, including those from big designers and a number that are perfect for kids. Where else are you going to get fabric with otters snuggling?

  1. Marshall Dry Goods Co: Check out this online store if you’re looking for some quilting basics!
  2. Delta Patchwork: There’s a little something for everyone at this online store. From high-end designers to basic solids to strange prints of sea turtles, they’ve got it. I should note that I am crazy about all of those Melody Miller fabrics they carry. So amazing.
  3. Pink Castle Fabrics: Not only can you buy fabric by the yard on this Etsy shop, but you can also get packs of pre-matched smaller squares that are perfect for quilting.
  4. Spoonflower: This is another site that I can’t believe I didn’t include originally. You can make your own fabric. Yes, that’s right. It’s custom printed and it’s so amazing. I really, really want to try this.
  5. Nature’s Fabrics: Nature’s Fabrics is another place to check with for organic fabrics. They’ve got bamboo, cotton, hemp, and wool.
  6. Aspen Fabrics: This adorable Etsy shop has a great selection of pattern and fabrics as well as some other cute things like stationary and trims.
  7. Calico Corners: There are a number of really interesting prints on here, though I would say most are for upholstery. If you don’t want to do the work yourself, you can also order bedding and furniture in the pattern of your choice.
  8. Emma One Sock: Here you’ll find a somewhat strange assortment of fabrics (lurex anyone?) but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, I swear!
  9. Down Shadow Lane: This Etsy store carries a pretty impressive collection of bold and beautiful prints (and some really, really cute ones too).
  10. Fabric Guru: There are lots of fabrics to choose from on Fabric Guru but the real bonus may be that they charge only a flat rate of $5 for shipping no matter how much fabric you order.
  11. As the name might lead you to believe, this site caters to quilters, though anyone working on a sewing project can probably find a thing or two they wouldn’t mind having.
  12. Payless Fabric: Just like Payless Shoes, Payless Fabric offers budget-friendly prices on many fabrics. They also carry some big names, too, if that’s what you’re looking for.
  13. Beverly’s: If you’re looking for cute on a budget, be sure to check out this site. They offer a selection of fabrics at a substantial discount every day.
  14. Tonic Living: On Tonic Living, the prints may be retro-inspired, but they still feel fresh and exciting. There are a few chevrons on there that I really feel like I need.
  15. J & O Fabrics: J & O is another great place to look for fabric basics. They carry just about everything and offer free shipping over $75.
  16. Warm Biscuit: One of the coolest things you can get on Warm Biscuit are vintage and retro fabrics! I’m particularly fond of this one.

  1. Retro Age Vintage Fabrics: They don’t lie when they say they carry retro fabrics. Some are impossibly cheesy, but many more are sooo cool you’ll just have to have them. I should note that it’s an Australian shop, so prices and shipping may be a concern for American buyers.
  2. Sew Modern: There are so many bold and beautiful prints on this site, it makes me want to go on a fabric shopping spree. I’ll refrain, but you shouldn’t! Good for embroidery fans (like me) as well.
  3. Bobbin’s Nest: Not only can you get super cute fabrics here, but they also sell supplies for knitting, crocheting, and quilting!
  4. Pins & Needles: You’ll find just about every amazing designer fabric you could want on this site, from Liberty of London to Heather Ross.
  5. Monaluna: For those who appreciate eco-conscious fabrics but still want to be stylish, you can’t do much better than this site. I desperately want to make a dress out of one of the blossoms pattern.
  6. FinnStyle: It’s a smorgasboard of Marimekko, Artek, and other Finnish brands! Some at serious discounts.

      You know, I have no idea who the designer of that fabric is as it was a remnant when I bought it. I got it from a local place called The Needle Shop which I mentioned in my previous fabric post. They have an Etsy shop and it looks like they carry the yellow/taupe version of the fabric there: If you’re set on the turquoise you could perhaps email them and see if they have any more on hand or could order it?

    I am great big fan and client of EmmaOneSock and it really doesn’t belong in this list of fabric shops. It is definitely NOT a quilting fabric shop. It’s for us sewists so do not quilt at all but only sew high-end, couture-style garments. The lurex you mention I am sure runs in the $20+ a yard range and isn’t dance costume fabric, but was made for a well-known fashion designer and used for evening wear.

    • Reply Christina Sabo August 28, 2012 at 11:23 am

      I’m a little confused by this comment. This isn’t a list of quilting fabric shops. It’s a list of places to buy fabric online, as the title of the post would tell you. And unless you’re the owner of this shop, I will not be removing that store from this list. This post generates thousands of links for the stores listed on it each week, so even if you think it’s beneath you, I assure you that the owners of the shop don’t mind appearing among a list of “low-end” fabric shops (many of whom also sell fabrics that are in the $20+ a yard range, FYI).

    My favorite, like several people have commented, is They most always have what I’m looking for, and I ALWAYS spend more than $35, so I take advantage of the free shipping. Another website I use is, which is a store about 45 minutes away from my house. But it is much easier for me to order from them online than to drive over there. One suggestion I would like to make on the list: it would be nice to know what type of fabrics each website sold. I don’t quilt, I make draperies, pillows, bedding, things like that, so the quilting materials just aren’t something I generally look at. And unfortunately, I don’t always have a lot of time to search each individual website to see. I’m sure there are also people on here who only would use quilting type fabrics and would benefit from it also. But thanks anyway! Eventually I will get through the entire list!

    This is fantastic, thank you so much for this list! Right now ive only shopped and wanted to see where else i could get items that weren’t too insane in price and this list has such a great variety of places!

  • Reply Sarah August 5, 2014 at 9:28 pm is also worth checking out – super prices, fast shipping (free over $35) and beautiful fabrics. Just got some more jelly rolls from them and will definitly be going back for more.

    I have purchased from a couple of times now. Not only do they carry hard to find prints at cheaper prices, but they have super fast shipping with a max flat rate of $5.50!!

    I’ve ordered from both of these and I’m very happy with them! Brickhouse packages very nicely. Very professional and some GREAT retro fabric.

    I was just in Ohio on a business trip and Unfortunately I was sick, otherwise I would have trekked over to FabricShack!!! Ugh! So upset I missed it and had to head back to WI.

    Craftsy has fabulous sales on fabrics – I’ve ordered there a lot when they have sales.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    • Reply July 14, 2015 at 2:38 pm

      This is just a hosted WordPress blog. The theme is one I purchased.

    First off I would like to say terrific blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    your mind before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind
    in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you!

    i am not an US resident so i am seeking for the best , cheapest site of those above to buy from middle east , also i am seeking for the one site that is specialist in fabrics for sewing clothes like satin , cotton , lace not for quilting , here in egypt quilting stores are different from clothes fabrics stores , so it is overwhelming for me to go through all th 35 choices that you mention , i want a help with those two conditions ( 1- fabrics for clothes , 2- cheapest shipping internationally ) … any suggestions ?

    How is not here already. Mel also has awesome fabric sales on her facebook page. She’s got the best deals on cotton Lycra anywhere. Those of us who make tons of kids clothes and leggings…this is the spot!

    I’m new to this blog, but not new to sewing and crafts. In fact, I’ve been sewing clothes and home decor for 40 years! What I cannot grasp is how women purchase fabrics online without having the opportunity to feel the fabrics. That’s why I’ve always gone to fabric shops locally and in nearby Philadelphia’s “fabric row” in South Philadelphia, where prices are much lower. Could someone please help me understand how buying online would suffice? It certainly would be easier!!

    Have you ever checked out It’s a really unique option for color customizable fabrics. And I don’t mean 10 or so different colorways, imagine unlimited color combinations!

    I know a quilt shop that is really good,

  • Reply Teresa October 15, 2019 at 12:44 am

    A great long list, thank you for all the work put into this.
    A site I would recommend is They sell only 100% cotton for quilters. The prices are half of what most stores charge, they have by the yard, wide backings & the bundles (1/2 yd & 1 yd & FQ) are color coordinated so I don’t have to match colors on my computer & color coordinating is my big downfall . I’m not a quilter, Just bags, totes, etc., all with cotton & they stand up well for wear.

  • Reply Alice Anne Humphrey February 24, 2023 at 4:53 pm

    I would add 2 places:
    Mood Fabric in New York City has everything.
    Dharma Trading has very reasonably priced fabrics ready to dye and the dyes. Their sample packs are great educational tools.
