Really Handy & Cool New Site - Find My Fabric.com

I have something really handy and cool to tell you.  I received an email telling me about this new website called FindMyFabric.com



Okay - I hope I don't sound like a commercial here.  I just want to tell you about the site because I've found it so useful and so easy to use.  What makes it different is the "find a fabric with a photo" option.  Yep, I thinking this is going to be good. 

Remember when I won Jane Sassaman's Book.  
Well, I found a quilt I wanted to make, but I haven't been able to find the fabric.  Okay - so here comes the good part - I uploaded a picture of the fabric. (Which was so easy to do)
at FindMyFabric.com and there it is! After searching for months and only finding one yard, I now have several online shops to choose from.   Okay but that's not all, I also just typed in the fabric line - Early Birds as I wanted to see all the coordinating fabrics and Wahla! There they were - at shops I could purchase from.  I also typed in Jane Sassaman and again I had several pages of fabric to choose from. I wanted to make sure no matter which way I searched I would find something. 

I then typed in beige tone in tone - (seems I'm always looking for good background fabric) and I was rewarded with many good choices. Below is my favorite.
The Dressmaker Collection available at Sew Inspired Quilt Shop
FindMyFabric.com tells me all the details of the fabric: name, designer, manufacturer etc and all the details of the shop. Then it provides a link to the product page or to the shop in general.  So cool. 

Then I wondered "How good is this search engine site?"  So instead of typing in fabric, I typed in "Log Cabin".  It brought up a page of Log Cabin patterns and books.  Okay - that's really cool.  I'm really happy with the site and I wanted to tell you about it - so that you too could use this tool. 

Sometimes I am asked to review products/services; I always give an honest review. I do want to disclose that I have been compensated for this review.


Happy Stitching & Searching,
Nicey Linda

  5. Thanks for the info! I had also received the email but chose to ignore it thinking it was just 'another site'. I have now bookmarked the site for future use.

  7. I have heard of this resource, but I have never tried it, and it seems I don't think of it when I need it. Glad it worked so well for you. Thanks for sharing!
