They are not inexpensive fabrics because the quality is impeccable. This is where you want to shop for fabric for that special project and you definitely want to make a muslin first.

I have ordered many different kinds of fabric from here. Their quality is good and their customer service excellent. Many of the fabrics used in sewing camp came from OFS. They also have a wonderful blog.
I have good luck with knit fabrics here and the owner Corie is very responsive answering questions.
There are many smaller shops that make their fabrics available through Amazon. Quality may be a question, so it can be best to stick with known fabric designers like Michael Miller or well known fabric houses like Westminster Fabrics, Robert Kaufman, Andover Fabrics, and others.
Do you have a shop recommendation?
I'd love to hear it, you can respond right in the comments or post your recommendation on Facebook or Instagram.
I advise against purchasing from fabric.com as they have sent me several stained orders. And while I am fault for fully checking the bolt upons receipt (they have a 30 day policy for returns), the staining has been so extensive I just don't feel right recommending them as a resource.
