What makes a good online fabric shop? Range of fabrics? Designers stocked? Style of designs? Prices? Good customer service? Reasonable shipping? Fast response to enquiries? Sales and discount codes? All of the above and more?
I’ve always been a big fan of Etsy, both for all the wonderful handcrafted goods, but also increasingly for their supplies. There are so many awesome fabric sellers doing a good trade on Etsy these days that I wanted to pick out a few I recommend.
I wrote to ALL the big fabric sellers on Etsy, told them all about the So Sew Easy site and invited them all to take part in this article, with a link to their store, a picture and a paragraph telling us all about them. And would you know it – 90% of the fabric shops I contacted didn’t even bother to reply to my email. A few even said they did NOT want to be featured!
Now I found that rather odd. What shop wouldn’t want free advertising in front of an audience of keen sewers who loved to buy fabric? Astonishing. It certainly makes it easy to narrow down what are the best shops to buy from. These listed below are the most responsive, the most friendly and helpful to deal with, and many of them even offered exclusive discount codes for the So Sew Easy readers too. These shops get my vote.
Enjoy browsing. Although most are in the US, many also send fabric overseas too.

USA. Welcome to my store for Laminated cotton fabric (aka coated fabric, oilcloth or vinyl) - I'm so glad you stopped by. I make children's raincoats and decided to open a store with the fabrics I use (some of which I have professionally made and you won't find anywhere else) I am also stocking coordinating cotton woven fabric, notions and patterns. All of my fabrics meet CPSIA (**Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) standards. (I do not carry the "traditional" oilcloth as it does not meet these standards and should not be used for young children) All these laminates are soft, pliable, waterproof and easy to sew using a few simple techniques. This fabric is wipeable, and most are washable. Used for raincoats, tablecloths, purses, splat mats, bibs, and upholstery.
