Shopping for fabric in the comfort of your fuzzy slippers!

I'm getting more accustomed to shopping for fabric online especially since I live 20-30 mins from the local fabric stores. I love to touch fabric, see the colors, take one bolt over to the next aisle and match it with a second bolt. But there is a lot to be said for walking upstairs in my comfy clothes, dogs by my side and hot tea in hand and going on a shopping spree!

Threads Magazine just sent an e-Letter with a list of online resources for fabrics and notions. I have found a few gems , in addition to their list, that I'll share, too:
* Little Cherubs for great medium to high end fabric
* Burkholder's Fabric Store - great prices for designer cotton fabrics
* Fabric Factory - limited selection, but great prices, for upholstery weight fabrics
* Atlanta Thread - super duper prices on Gutterman thread and other notions
So put on your pink fuzzy slippers and...Happy Shopping!

Oh yeah,

Nothing like shopping in the comfort of pj's and slippers. Sometimes I get cranky when I have to go out to a store 'cuz I know I'll have to get dressed! :0

Oh, and thanks for the bellylaugh and nice compliments on my post!
