Where I Buy Supplies

I don’t know if you have noticed, but awhile ago I added a page to the blog called “Where I Buy Supplies.”  You can find the link at the top right of the blog.  I plan on adding to this page as I find shops that I recommend buying from.  I know as a beginner it can be difficult to feel like you are purchasing quality supplies.

I like to purchase online because we don’t have a ton of nearby places for me to shop.  I used to run to JoAnns on my lunch break but then I switched jobs and now there isn’t one nearby.  We do have a Hobby Lobby in town but it doesn’t always have what I need.  But I do LOVE most of their fabric!  I will also run to Wal-Mart to get things like elastic, but I won’t buy fabric or thread from there.

A lot of the shops are on Etsy and sometimes it requires buying in bulk.  But the benefit of that is that it is much cheaper than at the store.  For example, zippers from Zipit calculate to about $0.75 each but at JoAnns they are around $2.00 each.  So if you have the space for a few more items then online is worth it.  Plus, I am helping to support a smaller business owner.

I hope you take a look and find my list beneficial.  If you have some favorite shops, let me know in the comments so I can try them out.  If I love them as much as you do then I will add them to the list.
