This place has a great selection and really down to earth prices. I know what these fabrics are, so can forgo the pleasure of a trip to Jo-Ann's to feel the fabric.
If you can't bear to buy fabric without touching it first, then check out the thread and notions prices. I got a big box of things I needed at what it would have cost fifteen or twenty years ago.
Makes me happy!

I too am a great fan of FFC. Another one that I use is Fabric.com. Not as large a selection but equally as good on quality and price. Ellie

I used to belong to Fashion Fabric Club when they sent out swatches every month more or less for a small amount of money yearly. I guess they are not doing that anymore as I haven't received any packets for almost one year. But, have to say, I have purchased a lot of fabric from the company over the years when they did send the swatches and I could 'feel' them and they were more than worth the money. I've belonged to several fabric clubs in my life and all were a lot more expensive but for the money Fashion Fabrics were great.

Yes, I have used Fashionfabricsclub.com. They do have great prices, I think. I like to just look at the pictures. I do that with Manhattanfabrics.com, also. They are more expensive, though.

If you like the feel of Joanne fabric then you really must venture into a local quilting shop. There isnt anything better than Amy Butler, Kaffe Fassett and some other designer fabrics. I sadly have to share finances between quilt shops and yarn shops. If only I had more money some months, but they both capture my attention equally.
