Now for my other favorite online place for fabric. FAT QUARTER SHOP .They have lots of Modas and other fabrics. They have pre-cuts and fat quarter packs although you can also order yardage.
I saw a fabric on Pinterest, followed it back to the page to find out what it was, did a search and found it MC CALL'S by Windham Fabrics There are polka dot fabrics in the line, and I am collecting them for a future project. I also loved the vintage pattern print.
Other than the ultra fast service, (I nearly always hear from them with a shipping conformation within a day) When I open that scuffed up box or bag, This is what I find inside. They take the pieces of fabric, fold them neatly, fan them and put them in a clear plastic bag. So the first thing I see when I pull it out is a feast of colors and patterns for my eyes.She even folds the ziploc to the back and slaps a little fat quarter shop sticker to hold it over. I know it might be less expensive for them to cram it in the shipping bag without the inner bag, and the store stickers. But I want them to know that at least to me, this little added care for the first impression works with me, it shows that on that end there is someone that cares enough about what they do that they are willing to go the extra mile, and that is what keeps me coming back.
That's it for my two favorite shops, the two I order from the most often. EQUILTER Is also a nice shop. They wrap their fabric in tissue paper. And it is like opening a present with a stack of fabric inside.
Don't even get me started with the yarn shops... some of those even tuck in a handwritten thank you note!
I hope that you all have a great weekend!!
