Where do I buy my fabrics? Online!
It's the best way to access all of the beautiful modern fabrics I love, which aren't available in my area. I shop at my sponsor shops - I really do! I partner with stores who carry the fabrics I like to use, since that makes everyone happy.
building a stash
Building a personal stash of useful, inspiring fabrics is such a joy! But how much do you buy? When you are shopping project-unknown, I generally recommend 1/2 yard cuts. Fat quarters are awful tempting, but I don't really recommend them unless you have already chosen a project or just can't resist buying an entire collection. When I buy prints, I generally make myself choose my favorites from a collection and like them enough to warrant a 1/2 yard, rather than messing with fat quarters. I buy 1 yard cuts of basics, like solids and favorite "helpful fabrics."
