Hubby bought me a new PC and I have been having fun playing with the PatternMaster program. And now I could use a re-supply of fabric for the stash. Could you all share a few links to online fabric stores. I'd prefer stores that offer moderate prices as I try to sew to save a bit of money when sewing. I do know about the Fashion Fabrics Club and Vogue Fabrics. Any other ideas??

Thanks!

Try fabric.com. They have a good selection, moderate prices & good customer service.

eBay! Especially if you want unique fabric.

Thanks everybody! I hadn't thought of eBay but I will look their too.

I am not the world's best sewer but I do enjoy making good fitting simple garments. I have made tunics, fitted and oversized tops. I also made a really good fitting fit and flare dress I wore around the house. I purchased some cheap fabric from Wal Mart and made the dress. I plan to purchase some nicer fabric and make it again. All these patterns were printed out using Wild Ginger software.

Right now I am thinking about making a V Neck jacket. I haven't decided whether to line it or to edge finish the seams and leave it unlined. I've never lined a jacket before but I have lined pants, skirts and a eyelet blouse. I will be using one of the premade styles to help figure out the jacket measurements.

Thanks again for all your help.

There was just an article in the latest Threads Magazine (#147 Feb/Mar 2010 - pg. 55). I've never used any of the companies, but it is a very long list.

Daisy,

You mentioned Walmart. That is where all of my 'first' pieces are bought. For $1.50 a yard one can sometimes find wearable fabric and if the test piece turns out...you have a blouse - albeit not as nice as the final product but still wearable.

I just have you tell you this, although it has nothing to do with online fabrics. (As far as I know they don't exist here in South Africa).
I live in Cape Town and someone recently told me about a shop that sells all fabrics for 10 rands per metre. That works out to 1 dollar 34 cents!
The way they operate is, they buy their stock from clothing manufacturers at the end of the season, or if they have too much fabric, or at auctions sales.
It can sometimes be a bit frustrating, but when you find something really nice it is great. Not everything is top quality, but there is a lot that is. I've even bought linen for that price! They have a lot of stretch fabrics, including lycra.
They also sell buttons and trimmings.
I must say that these sort of stories don't usually happen to me, so this is quite a find!!

ursula, we have a place similar to that in middle tennessee, they are a mill end jobber that sells for about the same prices you mention and they also have a section where they sell by the pound!  this place is so big that there are three buildings.  

the great thing about shopping places like this are that you get fabric that is still very much in fashion but you get to use it any way you like.
