Welcome, Dragonfly Fabrics!

Do you like beautiful floral fabrics, airy prints, a smattering of text and geometrics, and a well-organized shop?  Then you might like to stop in to visit my newest sponsor, Dragonfly Fabrics.

Based out of Houston, Texas, Dragonfly is an online-only boutique featuring collections from Cloud 9, Monaluna, Dear Stella and more.


I was glad to see some Art Gallery collections that had recently caught my eye.  Especially Meadow and Tule by Leah Duncan and the above Spring Harvest by Bonnie Christine.    I'd like to work with more Art Gallery fabrics.  They've really been putting out some beautiful things!


Along those same light and feminine lines, I came across this fat quarter set of Pippa fabrics by Ana Davis.  I'd never even seen these before.  That goldenrod tonal floral at center is something I'd likely use again and again.  But overall I like the mixture of simple one and two-color prints, florals and geometrics.  Feels so harmonious, yet sweet.


Quite on the other end of the spectrum is Jennifer Paganelli's latest collection, Lucky Girl.  So, so saturated... something I look for from Jennifer.  These florals would be so pretty on a little girl's dress.   Maybe I have another dress for Aria in me this summer?



Well, I could go on, because beautiful fabric abounds at Dragonfly, but you get the idea.  Perhaps even more pertinent, it's a great site too.  You can sort fabric by the usual criteria, like designer, collection or manufacturer.  But, more to my liking, you can also sort by color or by style.  Those are the features I tend to need.  Because sometimes a binding needs a good stripe or some text is exactly what you crave, am I right? 

In case you still need an excuse to take a looksee, Amy at Dragonfly Fabrics is offering Stitched in Color readers 15% off all regular priced fabric by the yard through June 1st with code Stitched15.  Enjoy!

::Giveaway::

One lucky reader will pad her stash with a $25 gift certificate to Dragonfly Fabrics!  To enter, tell me what feature(s) you look for when fabric shopping online by adding your comment to this post.  I'm sure Amy would love to know!  Make sure to leave your email address in your comment, if its not accessible through your public profile, so that I can contact you if you win.  This giveaway is open worldwide through midnight June 1st!

  1. I usually look for color first, and second, I consider the scale of the pattern. When I shop online, I also look for price discounts! Love your blog; wonder where you are in SC, as I grew up in Columbia and Charleston. Born in Conway, have relatives all over the state. I have lived in Virginia for a long time, but I always say I'm from SC, when folks ask me where I'm from.

  2. Oops, I left the first comment about looking for color and being from SC, but didn't give a contact. Email is judyswilkinson@gmail.com. thanks!!

  3. True colours are important. I'd like the fabric to look as expected when it arrives. An easy checkout is also appreciated - nothing confusing or that causes uncertainty. I'd like to be confident that my order has been received, and that my information is secure.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Being able to search by color, for sure. Makes or breaks a shop for me

    ReplyDelete
  5. Site organization and true colors are the two things I look at first, followed by price and shipping fees. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I do like being able to search by colour, collection and pattern are important too!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I like being able to search by collection or manufacturer. Thank you for the chance to win a fabric shopping spree.

  9. Hi Rachel! Thank you and Dragon Fly Fabrics for a lovely give away! I look absolutely colours and hope they are same in Real as they look in the shop. Next I look the pattern depending if I need it big or small. x Teje

  10. I like to search by collection, manufacturer & color. True colors are also important, and good images. I also really like seeing what others have made with a print to get an idea of the scale. thanks! ksd02667 at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  11. Color is nice but I REALLY appreciate it when a site breaks down the fabric by common searches such as "text prints", "novelty", "low volume", "stripes/dots", etc. actually I exclusively use one site to buy text prints since it's so easy to find them in their store. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I like to search by color and designer. I also love seeing samples and other photos to get an idea of what the fabric looks like when used. Feedback on the scale of the pattern (either a ruler or written measurement) is also helpful.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I like the option of buying bundles in the half-yards. I used to buy full yards, but with the price of fabrics going up and my income going down, I have to meet somewhere in the middle which is why I now buy half yards.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like when the fabric photos include a ruler or other object to help judge the scale of the print.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Generally I'm looking for good selection, reasonable prices and low shipping rates.

  17. Shopping on line is usually looking for a specific fabric or line to support a theme I want for a quilt. I usually try to work with colors or items that people want since all my quilts are gifted,

    ReplyDelete
  18. I really like it when a site (e.g., Hawthorne Threads) lists some of the solids that coordinate with any given print. That way, I can just look at my colour cards of solid fabrics and have a fairly accurate idea of the actual colours in the fabric no matter what tricks my monitor might be playing with me. thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I look for good selection, ability to search, sales, coupons, easy checkout. Thanks to you and Dragonfly Fabrics for the chance. dragonfly9716 at yahoo dot com

    ReplyDelete
  20. Good selection and easy to navigate website. Clean and simple website without lots of banners, etc. Sales help big time!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love an easy way to search and compare fabrics, plus bundles and the ability to order FQs. I mostly use FQs and it can be annoying to buy 1/2 or 1 yard cuts when I don't need them.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I like when you can search by color. Sales are also awesome. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really like online stores that have a ton of search and sort features. Sometimes I'm looking for entire collection, sometimes a specific color, and other times a type of design motif. It makes it so much easier to find that perfect piece when you can easily click and have a smaller selection of fabrics to sift through.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm probably far too picky about this, but it's so much easier to shop when the fabric is sorted first by type (solid, tonal, print, low-volume), then by color (not either type or color, but both!).

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for the chance to win - I love a really good search engine, but also links to common searches is helpful. Basically - tag it well so the SEO is great.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like to shop by color, by theme (text, dots, solids,etc.) and collection.
    I would like to be able to shop by value (low, med, dark) or at least have it noted in the prints description. I find it hard to judge volume online sometimes. In one shop a print may look light but in another it may appear brighter and more medium.
    I do enjoy the wish list feature, like Lark Cottons has.
    Thank you Rachel! I will hop over to Dragonfly and do a little color therapy :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like to search for color, collection and designer. Also a Sales or Special section is good. Always checking the shipping fees too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I usually look for a particular color, rather than a line, so it's nice to be able to search that way. I also appreciate if there is a small description clarifying anything that isn't clear...like "background is a very pale pink" so that I don't assume it is white. Or "the biggest flower is 4 inches across" so I can tell the scale.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like being able to buy by FQ. I like being able to see all items in a category on one page instead of paging, paging, paging. I like categories by manufacturer, designer, collection, style, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I lile to search by colour, and then i love it when there's a link on the page to the rest of that range. I love bundles too........

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love modern fabrics with Kona solids, Oakshott, and must be able to pay by PayPal.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love being able to search by color and price is always a huge factor for me, so good sales are a must!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Reasonable shipping charges are fundamental to me. Not just Flat Rate for any order, but other options as well. Thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  34. I really need good pricing; however, being able to purchase in fat quarters easily is most important to me.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I usually go for color first. Cost is second! :-) Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm usually looking for something I can't buy locally, almost always prints. I love to have a discount or free shipping so I'm not paying more than what it would be in my local shop!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I look for the ability to sort by colors. And I LOVE when a site can show me coordinating prints to go with the one I have pulled up on the screen. Especially with solids!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I usually search by designer first and then by color. I also like being able to find precuts pretty fast. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  39. The fabric market is saturated, so I look for something new...design, colors, texture, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Living in Australia, I have to say that one of the main deciders in online fabric shopping for me is shipping costs. But fantastic to have so much choice out there these days!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I look for the ability to search by color, modern fabric selection, and unique pre-cut bundles.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love when a sale section is broken down by price: i.e., $6 a yard. I generally know what's out there, I just have to buy it when I can afford it. Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. not sure i have anything new to add to the above! i like when there is a way to judge scale, i like when fat quarters are available, and i really like when things automatically go into a shopping cart, rather than having to circle back to my search results again!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like to shop sites with nice fabric pictures and easy search tools. Sales and low shipping costs are of course also quite lovely. I prefer not to shop sites that mix out-of-stock fabrics in with everything else, since I inevitably will want what I cannot get, and then I feel sad.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Living in New Zealand, postage is the thing I check out first when shopping online. I like a flat rate envelope that fits up to 10 yards. Then it's colour and designers. Sometimes I don't like having to buy a minimum half yard cut either.
    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  46. The ability to search by color, theme, or designer is important to me.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like being able to search by theme or colour, especially when I'm working on a specific project. I also like the sale section :-)

    ReplyDelete
  48. good solids because I use so much of them

    ReplyDelete
  49. BEAUTIFUL SELECTION AT dragonfly. I'M OFF TO CHECK IT OUT.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I look for color and print first. Lately I am into black on white small floral prints. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have never bought fabric online before -- I guess I would look for somewhere that had good sales regularly and cheap shipping. Thanks for the giveaway! sarah@forrussia.org

    ReplyDelete
  52. I head straight for the bundles ~ I love to see what others have curated! It is also nice to search by particular color or manufacturer. And any fabric girl LOVES a sale or free shipping!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I look for color first. I like it organized by color, then maybe line, or designer.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I look for affordable pre-cuts in new and favorite lines, and also being able to make my own sets of fat quarters.

    ReplyDelete
  55. More and more I appreciate being able to shop by color. I also like small custom bundles that are not all from the same line.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I look for a good flat rate price for shipping to Canada

    ReplyDelete
  57. Color is #1, but I also appreciate creative cross-collection bundles!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Free shipping and the ability to buy individual fat quarters.

    ReplyDelete
  59. For me, I need it to be easy to navigate. If it's hard to look at fabrics, it's too much trouble. One shop I've visited in the past shows me all these fabrics...and then I realize AFTER I've clicked on them that several are out of stock. I don't shop there anymore because it takes too much time and creates negative energy in me! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love being able to save fabrics to a design wall to see how they play together. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I agree with Beezus. I just received an order that was a half yard short because it was out of stock. The best on line shops can let you know before they ship to you. I generally shop by color, but if a fabric in a newsletter catches my eye, I will click over to the shop and check it out and often I end up shopping for fabric then, rather unintentionally.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I like a website that you can search by colour and designer.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I like to be able to search via price, style of design, and bundle/yardage choice. Thanks for offering this giveaway! Good to see Texas fabric stores!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Shopping by color is always good, flat rate shipping, and a ruler to show scale. And a design wall to see chosen fabrics side-by-side.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Free or low shipping seals the deal.
    cjudygo at hotmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  66. I really love custom bundles that have been created with coordinating prints from different collections / designers!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Love a design wall and like you, a shop by fabric style feature.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I look by color and designer mostly. I also like things listed by the yard, not half yard. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I especially love being able to buy smaller cuts and build custom bundles

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love when photos of the fabrics include scales, like a ruler or a mention of flowers are such-and-such inches across, so I know whether a new-to-me print is large or small scale. Checked out the site, will definitely be back, as I like small businesses with well-designed websites.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Knowing the scale of the design is essential if you need it for a particular project. Rulers are great but coins work too!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I will echo Vom Marlowe--I want to know the scale of what I'm seeing, and if it's a tiny square, I appreciate being able to see a larger swatch. And, like Beezus, I find it very annoying to do a search for a designer or line of fabric, see a lot of results, and then find that they are almost all out of stock. Two dozen results, five fabrics available? Very aggravating, much more so than if they'd just shown me five fabrics from which to choose. And, lastly, reasonable shipping prices count.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I look at colors....but I too, like seein the scale of design....small swatches often don't show enough of a print...and when you take the cance..can be very disappointing..and costly to replace or replan...

    ReplyDelete
  74. Thanks for the giveaway! I look for selection (to be honest, in order to save on shipping by getting as much fabric from one shop as possible).

    ReplyDelete
  75. I like to have a goodmsearch tool. Via, color, price, designer, etc. Thanks for the chance

    ReplyDelete
  76. Colour is definately what I look for first, followed by scale of print. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  77. good pictures, easy navigation, appealing fabrics, available yardage, and clear instructions on calculating shipping costs are all good in my book. looking forward to checking out dragonfly. thanks for the offer!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I like searching by designer/collection but color and theme are also great options. I really like being able to click on the fabric to get a higher resolution picture as well as knowing how much is in stock or being given the option to select 'ship what's available', 'cancel if not all available', etc. I think it would be nice to be able to add multiple items to the cart at once but that may be hard to do. Something important to me when buying online is shipping charges. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I usually search by collection first and then by price per yard. I also love when a shop offers 1/4 yard cuts, especially fat quarters. And, finally, I also consider shipping costs. Love the shop's selections!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I look for unique prints that I can't get at the local fabric store. New prints come out so quickly, that they usually dont' seem to make it to the fabric stores so...find them at an online store while you can!

  81. I like seeing a ruler to show the scale of print.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love searching by color or theme. I'd also like an online shop where I can purchase 1/4 yard cuts. Most seem to do 1/2 yards as a minimum which gets expensive! Thanks for the chance to win and for introducing a new shop to us. I'm hopping over there to check them out! I'm especially a fan of TX businesses!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I look for color first, then pattern. I am a floral girl. As much as I try to look at other things I still go back to floral

    ReplyDelete
  84. I look first for colour - then lots of selection - small cuts - and reasonable shipping - thanks for the chance to win a give away.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Being able to shop by color and a cart that doesn't time out too fast!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Actual photos of the fabric are best, like your photo of the lucky girl collection.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Low prices and free shipping! A girl can dream, right?
    craftyccain@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  88. The shipping costs. Plus I like online stores that list by designer, manufacturer.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Love Dragonfly fabrics! I'd love to win!! For me, I look mostly for 3 things:
    1. Easy to navigate website.
    2. Designer Fabrics.
    3. Excellent photos.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I like when I can find some older fabric that you may not find everywhere, that's usually something you have to go to a store for and I don't have many around me anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I discover fabric that I just have to have and then find it online at the lowest price.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Low prices, reasonable shipping, sales, searching by color

    ReplyDelete
  93. I love a design wall and suggestions for coordinating solids or prints. And of course the ability to sort by color and a variety of styles, and by designer and collection.

    ReplyDelete
  94. The thing I've found missing at other stores is specifically the ability to search for fabric with writing on. I've tried all sorts of key words but no luck.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Price is so important, followed by being able to easily find coordinating fabrics. Good shipping options are also a good thing.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I really like shops which offer a search by colour (including low volumes). I prefer to mix up fabric lines, so I need that.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I look for fabrics that will go with a variety of other things.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I look for things that inspire me - patterns, kits, beautiful color. I always buy something different than what I was originally looking for!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I like all searches to show up as one page of results, so I can scroll right through.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I look for 4 simple things (in no particular order):
    1. Clean and simple web page. Having colorful pictures every where is very distracting.
    2. Being able to sort by color is very helpful.
    3. Not having a ton of categories to choose from. Keep it short and sweet. Subcategories are great, for you can still list the items you have, but not have them all in your sidebar.
    4. Prices!!!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I like when a store carries the entire line so that I can get each print that I want/need in one place. I like FAIR shipping prices, not some amount based on dollars spent rather than what the pkg might weigh. Easy to navigate through a site. So far Dragonfly fabric looks like it fits the bill!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Low Prices and shipping costs are my number one priority. Then I love it when the site can offer color matching.
    zanalou999@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  103. I love to check out sale fabrics :) I also like to search by collection or designer. Low volume is a search I use a lot but not all sites have it. I always try to fill an envelope as I am paying for shipping to Australia so sometimes it's nice to find those extra nice little bundles to jam in :)

    ReplyDelete
  104. I like being able to search in a variety of ways (color, designer, theme, manufacturer, etc.). I alao like curated bundles and a good sized selection of sale fabrics. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I love being able to save my favorites!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I like a clean looking site with big pictures, a good search function, and paypal for payment. I look for variety and a certain curating that a store might have, and I appreciate lower (and higher) priced shipping options for overseas orders. There is more than one store I've stopped shopping from when the price of shipping exceeded the price of my order, even with sale prices. Love the Pippa fabric bundle too!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I like it when you are able to enlarge the pictures so that you can really get a good look at the fabric, also if a site has theme , color, designer, collection, and manufacture breakdowns I find it very helpful. I really don't want to sound like a cheapskate but I also pay attention to how much the shipping is going to be because that makes a big difference in how much fabric I will be able to buy, so I look for sites that have low shipping costs or sales on their shipping.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Variety. I don't like paying shipping costs so would prefer to do all my shopping in one on-line shop. If they don't have much stock, and there is only one thing I want, I'm unlikely to buy it at all.

    ReplyDelete
  109. A great search engine is most important and then I like Thumbnails.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I look for a good range of fabrics & reasonable shipping charges. It also helps to have a recommendation from trusted bloggers such as yourself. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Since I only buy fabric online, I have to be able to see the fabrics well - accurate colors, large pic or zoom feature.

    ReplyDelete
  112. It depends on what I need to buy, there are two things I am looking for in general when shopping online.

    First, always look for free shipping or lowest shipping cost.

    And secondly, I try to avoid fabric stores that have a ½ yard - 1 yard minimum , unless I need that much.

    Sorry, but I don't like to feel obligated to buy more than what I really need. There is so many online fabric stores to chose from and I really appreciate being able to buy a FQ or ¼ yard if it's what I need. Hope this is helpful.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I like to look for low shipping (at cost or close to it). I also like it when a shop pairs the fabrics with coordinates. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I look for low prices. I don't have a lot of money, so price makes a HUGE difference on whether or not I buy anything.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Just like a lot of others I like a coordinates selection, it helps to know if it will work for a certain project, or if my monitor colors are true enough. Other than that, I just need reasonable shipping costs.

    ReplyDelete
  116. When shopping online I look for a ease in navigating the site and, of course, selection.
    Thanks for the giveaway ~ so generous!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I look for great prices and often free or flat rate shipping... and of course lovely fabrics! :)

    ReplyDelete
  118. I love to search by color of fabric and like to see a scale for the prints too ! thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I like shops that have easy to navigate website. I love when I can view all fabrics in a category on one page. It makes it much easier to shop.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I look for good prices, a good search engine and easy navigation through the site.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I like Good pictures, a cart that holds the items, and simple verbage, thats why I like etsy so, and I am like you too the division of seperation of how to find items. Plus, what I see now shops will say a sale and its not. We all know fabric is 10.00 and when the line has been out awhile, marking it 9.95 doesnt put it on sale. and 10 percent isnt a coupon. Just my opinion cuz I shop alot.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I am in love with that Spring Harvest collection you showed. I look for reasonable shipping and sales when shopping online for fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Color. I love bright vibrant colors! These are beautiful! Also, I'm a thrifty shopper. I look for sales and good prices.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I like a sale and free or reduced shipping.

    ReplyDelete
  125. First I look to see the 30's selection. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  126. Shipping rates & what's new & sale, not always in that order.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Usually I look for color first, then size/scale. Then I look for what size cut you can purchase. some at 1 yd or even 1/2 yard is more than I want for a project, given today's prices and then shipping - so very important, as it can really add quite a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I like a website with options on menu tabs ie) colour, patterns, themes; also a way to find the fabric artist easily. Would love to try this stash!

  129. I like sites that offer lots of search options and let you easily view all of the fabrics in a collection at one time. Suggestions for coordinating fabrics are always helpful, too. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  130. Hi Rachel!
    The biggest thing I look for is: reduced shipping to Canada. It really drives me crazy when some online stores offer free shipping in the USA for purchases over a certain dollar amount, and then they don't even offer reduced shipping fees to Canada, even though I have spent over their threshold amount. Number 2: there are still online stores out there that don't accept Paypal for purchases.
    I enjoy and have tried your FMQ Chrysanthemums tutorial. Takes lots of practice, but looks really cool!
    Thanks for the giveaway,

  131. I like free shipping, unique collections that I can't find elsewhere, and not having to leaf through too many pages to see everything in one section.

    ReplyDelete
  132. i look for companies that will ship where i live with the same price as stateside shipping. i live in the us virgin islands and some people think we are international and of course choices.

    ReplyDelete
  133. I like being able to search by collection or designer

    ReplyDelete
  134. I like having a lot of different browsing options. I like being able to look at all fat quarters or all bundles but also like to look by collection or designer. Thanks for the chance to win! baileybn@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  135. I like a chance to look by collection and designer plus sales, low shipping charges and customer service.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I like searching by designer or color! :) Thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  137. I do search by designer most of the time. Great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  138. I like to be able to get multiple matching fabrics in a fat quarter bundle... at a good price!
    And... I just plain love to shop for fabric on line.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Accurate color is important (good lighting is critical to this), and of course, price. There are many on-line fabric sites so competitive pricing/shipping is important.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Search by color feature is very helpful, thanks! wonderlandbyalyce(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  141. I have really been looking the option of splitting up bundles to get different amounts of yardage for prints, instead of one big bundle. Although I like those too, for favorite designers and collections (the other two ways I search). Thank you for the giveaway! Lizzyp_159@Yahoo

  144. I'm swooning over Lucky Girl! Actually, I love everything in this shop! I like shops that carry lots of rich florals and batiks and unique prints, and I like to be able to buy fabric by the quarter yard if that's all I need. Reasonable shipping rates are also important. Thanks for the chance to win, and thanks for your lovely blog!

  145. I like an easy to use layout. Some online fabric stores are a chore to find anything. Kind of like fighting with Etsy. Scale of print is nice to know too. Although some print scales are obvious, some are not.

  146. I look for a few things at online shops...good selection, reasonable shipping costs, fast service and great communication. Some online stores I have stopped shopping at because they just can't measure up to the others. Thanks for the chance to win.

  154. Probably being easy to navigate and a good deal. I also look for something different then my local fabric shops have.

  155. Online I look for a specific color - so accurate photos are important! Also showing the scale of a pattern is important to me.

  156. Online, I look for fresh, colorful fabrics I can make scrap quilts with. They are my favorite!

  157. I always look for my favorite designers at low prices

  158. I love to browse by colour and designer too. One nice feature is where fabrics you have clicked on show together at the bottom of a page. So much easier to co-ordinate the fabrics for a quilt if you can see your choice displayed together before buying.

  159. My top criterion in choosing an online fabric site is selection. I buy online because I can't find something locally.

  164. Easy to navigate shop, and I love it when I can look at all the fabric in a category on one sheet - I get annoyed when I have to click through 10 pages to see what there is.

  165. Pattern has to be good, colour comes second. These are great collections!

  166. Since I spend most of my time outside of the US, I'm always on a lookout for online shops with decent prices AND low shipping fees. It seems like there are plenty of shops that have one or another, but not both.

  169. I like being able to browse by designer, I also really like a store to carry at least a three designer's fabrics I like so I can know to find my favorites there.

  170. I look at colour/pattern to see if it sings to me, and good light for the photo being taken if shopping on line, i hate seeing something on line that looks lovely only to have it delivered and it's not what you thought.
