locate supplies at discount prices

 A variety of links to help you locate supplies at discount prices. These are suggestions only, as we have not “tested” the sources.

This is for all to be aware of:
“NEVER EVER USE BATT-MART for a resource for batting.  They cheated us, lied and cashed our check – they never placed the order and lied about it. We tracked down whom they were buying it from: Fairfield — Fairfield is not happy either… Truly, they deserve NO business.”

With that said …. please see below for a list of resources.  We are always looking for more resources – if you have any suggestions, please contact us!


Quilt Fabric Closeouts – Great quality quilting fabric, fast shipment and excellent packaging.

Freecycle.org is free to join — you can post a free “Want” ad which notifies people in your area that you are in need of fabric.  Also, you can sign up for email announcements, set up the parameters of what you are looking for (fabric, fleece, batting, thread, etc.) and you will receive email announcements when a free item meeting your criteria is posted.


Martin’s Yarns – Martin’s Yarns sells acrylic yarn by the pound. 4 ply is $2/lb, baby and sport weight is $3/lb, cotton crochet is $6/lb.
