Where to Buy Fabric Online

5 Places to buy Fabric Online

I’ll admit it, I do most of my craft supply shopping online. Of course when I have the time, I love to just go and browse aimlessly; seriously, walking through Michael’s is the best. But since we don’t have a car, the internet is the fastest way to get what I need and get back to my day.

When researching online fabric retailers before making this DIY Mousepad, I came across the following amazing shops that you should absolutely check out!

1. Form & Fabric— loads of cute and modern prints (including the Cotton + Steel pictured above) at a great price. They also have amazing customer service. I’m talking about above and beyond here! Here’s the print I used for the Mousepad project. **UPDATE– store now closed, so I’m adding one more to the list**

2. Drygoods Design— based in Seattle, WA. They sell fun and playful prints and even have a cute goods section.

3. Superbuzzy— Where do I even begin, they have everything! Loads of fabric options, kits, trimmings and more. If you’re attending Craftcation, you’ll be able to checkout their store in person.

4. Spoonflower— Choose from several independently designed fabrics, or even make your own! Great for when you have something specific in mind.

5. Britex Fabrics— If you’ve ever been to their store in SF, then I don’t have to tell you twice about their stuff! A bit pricey, but a wide, quality selection.

6. Minted— If you ever shopped here for art, you’ll also love their quality fabric designed by independent makers/designers. Although it’s a bit more expensive per yard, you’ll still want all of their modern and fresh designs.

    For quilting fabrics, Hawthorne Threads and Fabricworm are my go to places as they are big with lots of choices. They have a smaller selection, but Pink Castle Fabrics and Westwood Acres Fabrics also do a good job.

    Form & Fabric is going out of business, FYI.

    • Oh I knowww, it’s such a bummer!

      Thanks for those recommendations Mindy. Looks like I might have to update my list a bit :)

    I also like PatioLane.com. A lot of people know the “usual suspects,” but for me, Patio Lane is like when you have that good band that your friends don’t know about yet. Check them out!

  • Amanda Bucha

    bigduckcanvas.com has some of the best prices I have seen on all kinds of canvas. There website isn’t as fancy as some of these listed, but they are true wholesalers and offer deals on cut yardage.

  • joanna boone

    fabricville.com is wonderful and also canadian therefor very competitive in price against a strong us dollar!

  • Getting1

    I love fabricmart.com – I’ve gotten some designer fabrics for as little as $1 an yard, on sale. Sometimes patience pays.

  • Hannah

    Just wanted to let you all know about a Online fabric store I stumbled across called http://www.endoflinefabrics.co.uk/ – they are a designer fabric outlet with designers from Anna French, to Swaffer, To Fryetts and more but at up to 80% off the retail price. I found a material i liked, so order a free sample which was with me the next day, then I ordered it that day and had my material delivered to me the following day, I had ordered over 30 meters of material and it only cost me £4.95 in P&P, which is fantastic and the material was exactly what I wanted, I shall definitely use them again and i thought i’d share the love on this one. Happy Shopping.
