    Default Anyone buy fabric from Amazon?

    This evening I was placing an order for something else & decided to browse the fabric section. I made it only through page 40 of 400 pages! I found a cute Dr. Seuss panel with matching yardage & ordered them. I just checked M*'s stock; they don't have the panel I ordered & the yardage is out of stock. The yardage at M* is cheaper, but... I saved shipping at Amazon. Until the end of Jan., Amazon is offering free shipping on any size order. Free shipping is 5-8 days. I noticed they carry name brand fabrics like Kaffe Fassett, Tula Pink, etc. But a person always needs to know prices & compare. I still give preference to M* if what I want is available.

    I'd stick with name brands there. Some of the fabric otherwise is not great. Ask how I know :-)

    Most of Amazon fabric is from fabric.com

    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    in last 8 months i have ordered from M*, fabric.com and amazon. with amazon sometimes it is sold and fulfilled by amazon, or sold by ....(probably a quilt store) and fulfilled by amazon, and sometimes sold by and shipped from.....3rd party. you just have to look at information when you order. sometimes 3rd party charges mailing even if you are eligible for free shipping. but i have had great service from all 3 places.

    I understand Amazon bought out Fabric.com
    I had good luck ordering from Fabric.com, but not all others did.

    I have bought fabric with no problem from Amazon. When I got the fabric, the name of the seller was a quilt store in California. I looked up their website and the fabric I ordered was a dollar cheaper than Amazon. So I ordered more from them.

    I've ordered fabric from Amazon several times. Never have had any trouble. I've gotten Robert Kaufman fabric, and others. My daughter ordered some Michael Miller flannel for some baby blankets and it was beautiful flannel, nice weight, washed up beautifully. I think, like the others, stick with names you know and you should be fine.

    I usually, not just with fabric, look at the seller/fullfiller and then go to their website to check them out before ordering. Usually Amazon is my go-to for pricing things out.

    I have bought a few hard to find charm packs and they were identical in quality, number of pieces etc as what came from M or FQS. Make sure you read the fine print carefully and stay away from anything that is shipped directly from China. The quality might be inferior and it will seriously take forever to get.
