I left a comment on someone's journal last night about online fabric stores with a bunch of links, and it occurred to me that there may be fabric stores I don't know about. Could it be possible?

Here's my list, slightly augmented. And by "slightly augmented" I mean "more than doubled in size".

FabricsStore.com -- Linen, some cotton
Fabric Mart -- Designer leftovers, Shetland wool (which is actually from Uruguay?), lots of other garment fabrics
Vogue Fabrics -- Not affiliated with Vogue Patterns or the magazine. Fabric store near Chicago.
Fashion Fabrics Club/Denver Fabrics.com -- Same stock on both websites. Somewhat unreliable when it comes to fabric descriptions.
Fabric.com -- Lots of quilting fabric, but also upholstery and apparel fabrics. Sometimes has awesome sales!

Fabric Guru -- Lots of upholstery fabric, some of it appropriate for historical costuming. Apparently they have apparel fabric sometimes, too.
Farmhouse Fabrics -- Heirloom sewing fabrics. Expensive!
B. Black and Sons -- Good source of wool, according to everyone I know.
Burholder Fabric -- Has quilting cottons in 1800s repro prints.
Thai Silks -- Silk from Southeast Asia.
Originals by Kay -- Dress lengths of fabric appropriate for mid-19th century clothing.
Renaissance Fabrics -- Does what it says on the label!
Jas. Townshend & Son -- Fabric under "yard goods" in the lefthand column.
Common Threads Quilting -- Repro prints.
Dharma Trading -- Undyed yardage in natural (and rayon) fibers and also other things.
Silk Connection -- Undyed silk and cotton yardage.
Silk Road Fabrics -- Yet again, silk. But also cotton and linen.

Fashionable Fabrics -- Modern sewing, not historical.
Fabricworm -- Modern, lots of quilting.
Bunte Fabrics -- European import fabrics and notions. Modern, though you might find something useful for historical if you poke around.

Etsy sellers I like, who all sell mostly silk but sometimes other natural fibers: FabIndianFabric, Fabricana, silkfabric

They only have fat quarters listed in their shops, but they'll make custom listings for yardage if you message them.

Does anybody have any shops they want to add to the list?
