If you love to sew and work on different projects, you are always on the lookout for a great deal on fabric. And if you are just starting out, you donít want to spend a lot on fabric in case you make a mistake and have to start over. Here are some of my favorite ways to shop for great deals on fabric.
Fabric stores often have fabrics that are out of season, remnants and older fabric on sale. Just stop in the fabric store every few weeks and browse through the clearance bin. If you buy your Christmas fabric in the spring or summer, you can get great deals.
Also keep an eye open for storewide sales that are usually announced in your local newspaper. If your store is getting ready to get new fabric in, current fabric stock is often reduced to make room for the new stuff.
Yard sales are a great way to get lots of fabric at a fraction of what you would pay in fabric store. Keep your eyes open when you go to yard sales. Sometimes the seller will mention fabric in their yard sale ad, but also look for ads that mention quilting and crafting.
Most of the larger fabric and craft chain stores now have online stores as well. In addition you will find fabric stores that are exclusively online. Since these online stores donít have the overhead of a brick and mortar store, you can often get any fabric for less. Look for sales and coupons as well.
You can buy just about anything on eBay, including fabric. Just browse through their craft section once a week or so and you will soon find deals on any type of fabric you may be looking for.
Just keep your eyes open and you will find all sorts of deals on fabric. You may not always find exactly what you are looking for, but if you buy a few yards here and there youíll soon have a great stash of fabrics for almost any project you come across.
