pinwheels.com and was always pleased with speedy, friendly service. Then there was equilter and they, too, were speedy and friendly. I'm getting antsy looking up the links at the moment, but trust me when I tell you that Pink Chalk Fabrics is a lovely place and Fabric Worm has the very best hand-picked bundles, and Glorious Color puts all of them to shame with speed of delivery (and don't get me started on their scrap bags -- be still, my heart!). No complaints about the on-line fabric giant -- Hancock's of Paducah -- either.
Someone had told me not to mess with Fabric.com, that this was a giant company whose goal was to put all the others out of business. I had enough places to spend my money, and never really thought about shopping there until December 5.
On that day I needed a particular fabric. None of my regular vendors had what I wanted in the quantity I needed. Google led me to Fabric.com and I placed an order. What I needed fell just a little short of the total needed to get free shipping, so I added a little something more. Each day I was filled with anticipation as mail time came. But mail time was all that came and went. No parcel from Fabric.com Yesterday morning, December 13, I received an email telling me that my fabric would be shipped on December 15, ten days after I placed the order. We'll see when it ultimately arrives. I'm glad it wasn't something I needed to finish a Christmas gift.
And it's back to the little guys, the independent fabric vendors for me.
