One of my all time favorite things in the world to do is go fabric shopping – even for no purpose but to just buy it because I thought it was pretty. Nothing excites me more than to find a new place to dig through to see what I can find. For me, it’s like treasure hunting!

It’s always a different experience when shopping brick and mortar stores VS buying fabric online. There is so much that you can’t tell when buying fabric online – how does it feel? Is it flimsy? will it be difficult to sew? Is it a knit? Is it a woven? When I got the idea to write on this subject, I really wanted to put together a post on how to shop for online fabrics (like a guide) when I realized that the subject is so broad because of so many fabric types out there. Instead, here’s a round up of places that best scratch the surface on the topic:

Guide to fibers
