    Heather: I just want to say that your an amazing young lady to take the time give people patterns, resources and your generosity. I would like to thank you so much. I’m retired and enjoying reading your newsletters which give me ideas and inspiration to do things. Thank you again. I really do hope people appreciate what you do.

  2. Thank you for taking the time to compile this list. Very useful info.

  3. Lauralynconnor@hotmail.com says

    I noticed that Fort Worth Quilt Shop was not on your list. I live in BC and have found them so incredible I just wanted to let you know. I order on Friday mornings and it is in Blaine, WA for me to pick up on Monday! And they are so very helpful. Just wanted you to know. Thanks,Lauralyn

  4. That is a terrific roundup! Some I had never heard of – so thank you for the details. I like Missouri Star Quilt. Prices are decent, selection top notch and that daily sale is awesome. Plus their videos taught me to quilt. How better to thank them than to buy. Fabric.com I find to be slow to ship and sorta iffy customer service, but the selection is terrific. They need to work on their website though. So does Joann’s. My two cents. About what it is worth I guess!

  5. Primrose Bohne says

    Oh what a great resource. Though a couple that I have looked at came to mind – GStreet Fabrics in Washington, DC., and Sawyer Brooks, (I think that’s the name), I ordered some Ambiance Lining from them. Love your blog.

  6. EmbellishMePattyV LLC says

    Great list of fabric shops, several I am not familiar with but will check them out.
