I have split this into two main categories, for shopping, and free resources and information!! Please feel free to add your links to this thread as well! There is so much stuff out there and sometimes the best sites are the hardest to find!

Favorite Free Resource Sites:
http://www.sewing.org/index.html - fun free projects, also some great general information and tips

http://www.craftfreebies.com/index.html - this place is a goldmine for all kinds of crafts!

http://crochetme.com/ - lots of patterns - crochet like the name suggests

http://www.mypicot.com/ - free crochet and knitting patterns

http://www.nexstitch.com/index.html - amazing site with information on crochet, videos of the stitches and great patterns!!!

https://www.ravelry.com/account/login - a knit and crochet heaven!!!! It takes a little while to get an invite to join, but it's free and it's a simply amazing resource!!! Lots of patterns, various pictures of the completed works of many members, it's so worth the trip!

http://www.marthastewart.com/ - there's lots of free projects and information on Martha's site!

http://www.whatthecraft.com/index.php - this is a fun site, and a great resource. There's lots of free information, and links to more free information. Geared at the teen and 20-something crafter I'd say

http://www.craftster.org/

http://www.craftstylish.com/

http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/baby.html tons of free knitting and crochet patterns

http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/

http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/

Favorite Online FabricStores
Fabric Stores - these have some of the best selections and easiest navigation I've seen

http://www.hartsfabric.com/index.html

http://www.fabriclovers.com/index.php

http://www.fabrichound.com/store/

Other Craft Stores -


http://www.herrschners.com/ - this is an absolute favorite site!!!

http://www.addictedtoscrapbooking.com/Home

http://www.craftsetc.com/

http://www.joann.com/joann/

http://www.marymaxim.com/

http://www.addictedtorubberstamps.com/ - I have a hard time finding selection at local stores, and this site has SO many stamp designs, it's great for a serious stamper, or even a casual one with a specific need!

http://www.newarkdress.com/ - I got this catalog and they have GREAT STUFF!!!! Everything you want for sewing, some stuff I haven' t seen elsewhere! Lots of doll clothing patterns, unique books, handy accessories, etc.

Can we add craft blogs to and our favorite places on etsy that sell patterns and things like that ? I like to look at blogs for inspiration some of the people that have blogs also have a shop there or on etsy. I also am on raverly as tjo9 so I can second that and nextstitch is a great resource. I checked out most of those and there are some really great sites thanks.

Of course we can add places on Etsy that sell patterns and everything!!!!! The only thing is that I'd love everyone to help me keep them up to date, and if people take down their sites we take them off the main list. Post any that you want and I will add them to the original list!!
