A quick personal note:
Yes, there are lots of groups on Facebook that sell fabric but personally I prefer an actual store site to shop at, that's why there are no fb fabric groups listed above but feel free to add any that you shop at in the comments below.
Also, please remember that there are many FB groups that sell 'custom' fabric but they break the copyright laws. So that perfect Harry Potter fabric or Mickey Mouse fabric that you see is probably not licenced.
