Some favourite eBay shops are:
regencyrags  - reasonably priced - an eclectic mix of jersey, viscose etc.
fabfabricsbymaggie - particularly good for wools, tweeds and cashmere. Maggie often has Harris tweed and other Scottish and Yorkshire tweeds.

I have recently ordered from here having found them on my hunt for nice patterned jersey. I got some really nice peach fabric with swallows on it in the clearance as well as some fake suede in navy with some box detail on it. I also splurged on some grey jersey with clouds and some with sheep on it (the knitter in me couldn't resist it). I also ordered some plain cotton jersey which was very nice as well.

If like me you are ordering in Ireland so using a parcel forwarding service just beware the samples came separate from my main order (they have to be phoned in or emailed which should have been the clue for me!) so were a second parcel but if in the UK it was very prompt.

Francesca,

Thanks for starting this list as the South-East is a bit of desert for fabrics, etc. and I now order quite a lot on line.

 For quilting fabrics I like JB Quilting Fabrics.
They have a very good range and a 'design board' so that you can see how fabrics look together.  Postage costs are very reasonable and delivery is nearly always next day even when I have ordered in the afternoon.
The only negative is that you have to order in half metre units.

Ones I'd like to add for dance fabrics, particularly lycra, that I haven't seen listed elsewhere here are:

The big three (but also the most expensive)
https://www.chrisanne-clover.com/products/fabrics
http://www.dsi-london.com/dance-fabrics.html
http://www.trim-it-uk.com/direct/index.html

The following have smaller ranges but sell decent quality dance fabrics at budget prices.
http://www.calicolaine.co.uk/
http://www.thecheapshoptiptree.co.uk/
http://www.whitelodgefabric.com/

These two are worth a try if you're struggling with a tight budget but always get samples before buying.

Fabrics look good but when I looked into the site it is based in the U.S.A. which means expensive to order.

That's odd as the prices are in pounds

Yes, I'd seen this one recommended somewhere myself fairly recently and was pretty interested until I realised it was American.

I've had several lots from here, good service. I've also visited the shop on a couple of occasions, it's a bit or a rabbit warren but I've bought stuff on both visits. Not to be confused with The textile centre.

This is one I like, especially for jersey. They are based in Germany and shipping is a bit pricey but free if you spend €75.
Fascinated by what they call 'Middle Age Fabric'!!!!

I have been on the point of buying things from MyFabrics a couple of times and found exactly the same thing significantly  cheaper here, even with shipping factored in.

CalicoLaine is good for Blades Linen and they also do a very nice quality dress lining fabric

I also had some lovely Brussels Washer Linen from Dragonfly Fabrics

Try katsfabrics on eBay for well-priced Liberty tana lawn - I don't know how I managed to forget about them until now!
