www.Cheeptrims.com


I haven't purchased anything from them personally, but the person making my wedding gown {way too daunting for me to attempt - I STILL haven't finished my 'simple' skirt!  >:(} recommended that site when we were picking out colors, etc. They have TONS of trims and the prices seem to be reasonable {hence the name, I suppose  ;) }

Well I can! I have been purchasing from Cheaptrims for I think 8 years now, I have never had an issue with them, they do have a minimum order so I tell people all the time to make an order together.  The trim is shipped promptly and it is wonderful.

I love the sticky with the websites of fabric resources, but how about a sticky with trim & notions?  ;D

BTW - if you visit New York, this is also a fun store to wander through.

Oh...  I couldn't imagine wondering through MJ Trims...  That would be such a bad idea.  ;D

You are right.... stickying this topic is a good idea.
Now you can find your fabric and your trim easily.

I found a nice trim on Cheeptrims at a very reasonable price:  $10 for 25 yards of jacquard metallic ribbon.  However, when I went to check out, I was stunned at the shipping cost, $12.20.  For 1 roll of ribbon.  So I guess I'm not buying something from them, when the cost of UPS ground shipping is more than the cost of the product.


I'll try to find something local first or on one of the other sites.

I would like to add this:

http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/zuke989_W0QQ_nkwZQQ_armrsZ1QQ_fromZQQ_ipgZ

They have a good variety of trims, not always a lot, but nice anyway, at great prices.

Another thumbs up for Calontirtrim, Steven Boyd
http://www.calontirtrim.com/catalog.htm
I stumbled on his website after a google search and took a chance with an unknown vendor since it was just a few bucks worth of trim.
Shipping was in a Priority Mail Envelope, $5.00  It would cost me more in gas to get back and forth to my closest hobby/fabric store and I can guarantee you I wouldn't be able to find a more perfect trim for my project, (Pirate coat).
Steve replied to my email within 2 days - shipped the day after cc info was sent (the post office was already closed) and was just overall very nice to work with.
I will look to his website first any time I need trim from now on.
Plus, his bio explains that he is a full time teacher and does this on the side ... really, does it get any better than that???
OK, gotta go now, I need to put the trim ON the pirate coat now and stop gushing over it.

Haven't seen anyone post this one yet but it has some good stuff. Our Earl of Leicester at Bristol is a frequent patron of theirs. Palladia Paasementerie : www.palladiapassementerie.com  or search for Palladia Passementerie on facebook.

Calontir and Pillaged Village are my go to trim sources.

The Pallidia Passamentre trims are lovely, but very expensive. I have one of their trims on the bottom of my Mary Queen of Scot's forepart of the underskirt. One yard cost me $15.

Cheeptrims has a $65 minimum order, so if you can find enough things for an order (or go in with multiple people), it might make the shipping worth it. 

I found a nice trim on Cheeptrims at a very reasonable price:  $10 for 25 yards of jacquard metallic ribbon.  However, when I went to check out, I was stunned at the shipping cost, $12.20.  For 1 roll of ribbon.  So I guess I'm not buying something from them, when the cost of UPS ground shipping is more than the cost of the product.

Thanks for that heads up! I've never noticed their prices because I don't play a character high enough ranking to wear their trims lol!
