Recently I was asked where I purchase my fabrics. The answer is everywhere where I travel. We are blessed in North America with a huge selection of excellent cotton . The cost per yard or metre is almost double in Europe, so quilting is a luxury. I shop on-line for Japanese fabrics and go to my local quilting store The workroom or Quilt a Bag . The best vintage prints I find at antiques fairs or in my mother's closet! The textile museum in Toronto hosts every year a yard sale. Fabric lovers are lining up an hour before the open. The nicest thing is to make a bundle of scrap fabrics and swap with a friend!
