E : Endless Resources

Today's topic is

Endless Resources : Online Fabric Resources

And today's post is written by someone who is an okay quilter and loves to ramble on about a lot of things around her... She is totally self taught (nobody even taught her to thread a sewing machine!) and has been quilting (attempting to quilt) for 2 years now...

Who is she?

Your's truly!!!

Staying in India I was not introduced to designer fabric (I didn't even know such a thing exists!) untill I participated in a fabric swap by Sew Mama Sew...

I do not remember when I started actually buying fabric online... But I did, and I'm glad for it... Today my stash is growing more rapidly than my son!!!

So where do I buy fabric online???

Here's my list of top 10... If you have a shop, small or big, just leave a link in the comments so that people will know!

The Fat Quarter Shop was founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly. The Fat Quarter Shop continues to branch out with the best fabrics, exclusive kits, quilt clubs, BOMs, and more. Visit The Fat Quarter Shop and drop by their blog The Jolly Jabber
I have bought from them often and I love shopping with them... :) Super fast shipping and generous cuts!

Fabricworm has modern cotton fabric for quilting and many other craft items. Cynthia is the founder of the store and carries one of the largest selections of Japanese imported fabrics online. 
She has a great collection of my favorite Echino prints.

  1. Hi Shruthi. Many thanks for this post as it has been very informative.

    I have just begin quilting and was searching for precut fabric stores in India. But sadly, I did not find any. Regarding the Fat Quarter Shop, how much do they charge for shipping and customs if I order fabrics from them online?

  2. Fabric consumption is increasing in everyday life which is why I love fabric...
