-Problems with website(s) not being up to date. Once when I ordered from SpandexHouse, I got a call saying they didn’t have the fabric I wanted, but I was able to cancel the order and get it from SpandexWorld. However, another time when I ordered from SpandexWorld, they sent me my fabric without telling me one of the items I had ordered was out of stock. While they refunded the money, I would have liked to have known I was going to be short a color.

Pros

SpandexHouse/SpandexWorld

-Their coupons are very hard to find
-Fabric is on the pricy side
-Not organized well and it can be hard to find what you’re looking for

Pros

Hancock Fabrics

-You can always find good coupons for their fabrics
-Has a decent selection of stretchy fabrics
-Lots of specialty fabrics as well that you may need for details
-Being in-store, you can touch the fabrics without ordering swatches
-Being in-store, you can get any cut of fabric you would want.
