3/31 | Best Places to Buy Fabric Online

Where do you go to buy the fabric for your sewing projects? Many of us picture that local sewing or craft shop but did you know that there is a fantastic assortment of places to buy fabric online? The advantages of shopping for fabric online are the convenience (you can shop in your pajamas!), the selection, and the deals. Here are my favorite / the best places to buy fabric online.


Warning – once you discover Spoonflower, there’s just no going back. What makes it special is that they don’t carry big brand-named fabric. Instead, it’s designed by individual artists and designers. In fact, you can even design your own!

Their fabrics are eco-friendly too as they use water-based pigment inks and dyes, with very little waste for their digital print process. Search by theme or color for just what you want. You can find unique designs that you just won’t see anywhere else.

They offer bulk discounts for large orders and 10% if you order fabric using your own design uploaded to their site. Their pro memberships offer even more benefits for frequent buyers.


This site has a wide selection of all kinds of fabrics – you’re sure to find something you like! You can search by color or if you have a favorite fabric designer/brand, you can search that way instead. One of their great features is that they will even suggest coordinating fabrics.

You can save some money with Fabric.com too because any orders of $49 or more qualify for free shipping in the continental United States.

Joann Fabric and Craft Stores

Of course, many of us are familiar with shopping in Joann stores but did you know that you can order their fabric online too? They have a huge selection of basic and home décor fabrics.

They put their fabrics on sale frequently and offer coupons regularly to help you save money.

Online Fabric Store

Online Fabrics is another terrific source for fabrics online with a wide selection of popular fabrics including a large assortment of licensed designs. One of the things we love about this site is that it’s so easily searchable – by brand, color, design, use, and more so it doesn’t take long to find just what you want.

Online Fabric Store offers great prices and excellent customer service. Not only that, but you get free shipping when you spend $50 or more. They also often offer free shipping days and coupon codes to save you even more money.


It might not have occurred to you to check out Etsy when it comes to shopping for fabric, but it’s a great place to find some vintage treasures. Since it’s often like looking through the remnants display at your local sewing shop, you might have to do a bit of digging to find what you want.

And, it’s unlikely that you will find something for a large project but if you’re looking for that perfect throw pillow fabric or an accent piece to add to something else, this can be a great source for something unique.


You might think of Minted as the place to go for ordering all of your beautiful stationery needs, but they offer lovely fabrics as well. These are a unique selection that you won’t find elsewhere, created by independent artists.

The prices at Minted are somewhat higher than other stores – in general, they run about $32 a yard – but they might have just the right piece to create that perfect accent for your room. Think small projects like place mats and napkins, throw pillows, and wall hangings.


Fabricville offers a wide array of fabrics in a variety of types and uses. They often have sales going on (including 50% off and 2 for 1) as well as frequent coupon offerings.

They offer free shipping on orders of $100 and above.


If you’ve ever watched Project Runway, you’ve heard of Mood Fabrics. “Thank you Mood!” As with their retail location, they have an impressive selection of fabrics to choose from and offer free domestic shipping on orders of $100 or more.

With their Swatch Club, a monthly subscription service, you can receive 25 high-end fabric swatches from their new inventory and/or bestsellers.

Calico Corners

Specializing in home décor fabrics, you’ll find thousands of classic prints as well as more modern designs. A great selection with a large variety of colors, patterns, and styles.

With all of these online fabric shopping options available, you’re sure to find just what you need for your next sewing project.
