I want Japanese Kit Kats, why can’t I buy them online for less than the value of their weight in gold.
for quilting fabrics, fabric.com! hawthorne threads and fat quarter shop often have things that are not available for cheaper at fabric.com if you are looking for something specific. apparel-wise: shaukat will sell you basically every liberty fabric that is available not limited to the lawns. combing through the catalogue of denver fabrics/fashion fabrics club is an incredible slog but there are nice things scattered amongst the dross, and the prices are good. fabric mart has the most incredible sales and you should not sign up for their newsletter because you will want everything, but it is worth looking at often because they get new stock so frequently, and they will sell you a bundle of no-less-than-1.5-yard cuts totalling 10 yards for $15 which is better for you than for me, as they have a flat rate for shipping within the contiguous states but international shipping costs vary. i look longingly at mood fabrics often but have never ordered anything from there ($$$$$). gorgeous fabrics also has a beautiful selection if you can ignore the fabric descriptions. fabrics-store.com for linen. this sounds like i buy a lot more fabric than i do, mostly i just window shop and daydream about what i would make and then move on with my life. fabric mart for real though.
