General Question and Opinions, please.
I hope you don't mind me using 'our' blog as a place to ask my questions. I've been shopping today and visited a couple of 'chain' fabric stores and one quilt shop. I find the whole process of fabric shopping to be a little overwhelming. I was able to pick out the two fabrics I was looking for today, but was very discouraged with finding a collection of coordinating fabrics to start a new project. I told my husband I think it is easier to shop online, where the fabrics are usually displayed in a somewhat coordinated fashion. Also, the fat quarter bundles at the quilt shop were oh! so pricey. I know I can find those cheaper online. So, my question to you: where do you buy most of your fabric? do you have to see it in person before buying? or do you prefer online shopping? Also, about batting....do you buy packaged batting or do you buy it off the roll where the clerk has to cut it for you? Still learning and very curious!
