Random Afternoon Question

What is/are your favorite Online Needlework Site/s?

Mine are 123stitch.com, European XS, and Cross Stitch World; and for fabrics, Picture This Plus is my go to spot. :D

I like 123stitch too, and I often use 8888bg.com, which is a bulgarian only site but it's fast and easy - ordering one day, getting the stuff on the other :)
Oh, and I wanted to say - I love how I always get the random afternoon question around midnight here ! :D

I have a few that I enjoy. These are in no particular order.

Down Sunshine Lane

ABC Stitch Therapy

Stitching Bits and Bobs

Needlecraft Corner

I like having different choices. I posted this question on my blog.

I'm going to do everything I can to join you this weekend on IHSW.

Hmmm, let's see. Mine are..
Picture This Plus

I don't think I have ordered from anyone else yet. I have ordered fabrics from Polstitches and Other stores but I went through ABC Stitch and they ordered it.

I have ordered (and had good experiences) from 123stitch.com (my go to place), and if they don't have it, I go to either ABCstitch.com or stitchingbitsandbobs.com. Fabric I usually get from Silkweaver or my not so local LNS if I can't get it from 123stitch, or I buy fabric from fellow stitchers. :)

I have only ever shopped at
123stitch. They always have what I need and the delivery is super fast!
Mireille said…
Till now my favorites are:
Stitching bits and bobs.
But we learn every day and now i am studing the site of 123 stitch :-)
Nicola said…
SewAlong for fabric and specialist threads and beads and Leisurecraft tewkesbury for threads for me! xx
Pauline said…
My favourite site is www.peddles.nl
I buy most of my fabrics and patterns there.
Andrea said…
I usually shop at ABCstitch, cause I like the way the other items needed for the project are usually on the page too and easy to add. I like 123 stitch but not their layout so much. European Cross Stitch is wonderful for kitting up Chats. For fabrics I like PTP, silkweaver (have discovered if you join wishlist fotm the shipping is cheap and you still get what you want, and Sparklies have been gorgeous (what I have so far) I really miss The Froggy Stitcher, Karen was awesome and knowing what they had in stock was fantastic if you were buying for an exchange/present or were in a hurry :D

Here in the UK Sew and So is hard to beat. Order one day receive the next. Have also ordered from Down Sunshine Lane.
Sewandso is my first stop too. I also found Celtic Rose do cheap DMC though I haven't used them yet.
Crafty Kitten and Sparklies are the two hand-dyed sites I have used so far. Don't worry Polstitches, you'll be used too!
Violarium in Finland sent me my Niume charts with several freebies which was nice.

I shop around the world courtesy of the computer (and not being able to get all the things I want here in Australia)

Here is my List
Stitches and Spice - Australia (hand-dyed fabrics and I get my Chatelaine kits from here)
ABC Stitch Therapy - US
123 Stitch - US
Traditional Stitches - Canada
Sew and So - UK

Have got fabric from Sparklies and also ordered from Jardin Prive in France with very fast service!

I like stalking the postman!

I have several go-to's, mainly because their sales are predictable (you know, major holidays/events, like Super Bowl):
JJs Collectibles in KY
Cecilia's Samplers in MO
Wasatch Needlecraft in UT

Needlework Plus is great, because they have pretty discounted everyday prices on the basics - but she's been trying to sell her house and move to another state for months - so while she's in transition phase, she might or might not have a delay - just depends what you ask for and what's going on!

I "window shop" at SB&B, ABC, 123, Silver Needle, Shakespeare's Peddler, ECC, PTP, Silkweaver, Nordic Needle, and several others.

ABC Stitch is by far my FAVORITE! I can place my order online and click for in store pick up :) The staff is wonderful and always very helpful!

123stitch is my second choice. Their prices are great and shipping is very fast.

Everything Cross Stitch is on the list too :)

Now, after reading so many new ones, I'm off to check out some new ones!!

I definately agree with European XS. I'm a big fan of www.knowlwedgeandneedles.com
TammyK said…
I'm like you and a lot of others here 123stitch.com is a great site :)

HAED, obviosuly, and I'm going to have to try a chart from an Etsy shop called WeeLittleStitches one of these days after a friend introduced me to them (she doesn't even stitch, she just saw a combination of stitching and Serenity/Firefly and thought of me)... For supplies I would go for www.sewandso.co.uk and threads is generally ebay I'm afraid (well, you can nab a bargain occasionally).
demeter83 said…
And the next time I need fabric, I'm just working my way down this list until I find what I like!
Anne said…
Traditional Stitches for anything and 123 stitch, however, 123 stitch takes an age to come to Canada, so I prefer Traditional Stitches for speed.
mdgtjulie said…
I'm a big fan of 123stitch and HAED. I shop there daily (some window shopping, some buying) at HAED and weekly at 123 (again, some window shopping and some buying). I also shop at www.Qsnaphuggies.com as my friend Chris sells great Q snap huggies there. I have about twenty huggies she's made me and they are fabulous!!! When I'm in a Chaty mood, I shop ECS or Martina's site. I've shopped at Down Sunshine Lane (gc) and a couple of other places I don't remember as well.
Joy said…
I must admit that I have not used any of the sites except 123stitch. I do love the service and the prices. I am going to try Picture This Plus soon. You have inspired my fabric gene.
