This acquisition will enable Fabric.com to further expand its selection of fabrics and accessories while enabling Amazon.com to offer its customers a wider variety of products in the sewing, craft and hobby segment.

"The acquisition will allow us to more effectively build our business around the customer, offering great value and a unique shopping experience within the sewing community," said Stephen Friedman, CEO and founder of Fabric.com."We now have the opportunity to significantly expand our breadth of inventory, as well as benefit from the technology, fulfillment and customer service expertise of Amazon.com."
