About a year ago I started buying all of my fabrics online. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to realize that I could do this and save an incredible amount of money; I guess it’s just human nature to stick with what you know. For the longest time I’ve been doing all my shopping at the local craft store. Maybe it’s because this is where I had my first job, or maybe it’s because of sentimental reasons, but for some reason I just never thought about going anywhere else.
I’ll never forget when I found my first online fabric store. I was checking my e-mail and looking for some movie times, when I saw one of those pop-up ads appear on my screen for something that I was in the market for. As soon as I saw it I realized that the price that they were advertising was far better than anything I’ve ever seen at my usual place. Actually, I’ve never really seen flannel fabric at anywhere near this kind of price, so I couldn’t help but click on the ad the moment I saw it. Even though I had read before that these ads are highly targeted, it just always seemed like fate that I would eventually find this kind of incredible deal.
