Best fabric stores + quilt-related services

What are your go-to places to shop for quilt supplies and services?! 😍

Please tell us about your favourite fabric stores or quilt-related service providers to include in the VMQG website, under Resources. We'd like to provide a list of the best places to get fabric and all the other supplies that we typically use to make our beautiful handmade things. Things like, Products: solid colour fabric, designer fabric, notions, tools, sewing machines, etc.; Services: classes, long-arm quilting, sewing machine repair, who has good delivery options (fast shipping or in-person pick-up, or both); who has the best promos/sales/points programs, etc.

Our members want to know about the best places to go for the things we need/want, so a trusted recommendation from another VMQG member goes a long way. We want to support our members with valuable information, and we want to support the businesses that support us!

 Take me to the form 

Thank you for contributing.
