Where to buy knit fabric online




Where to buy knit fabric online?

The most common question I get asked is where do I go to buy knit fabrics. People are always asking that in our Facebook Sewing Pattern Group - join us here! Especially since we have been releasing sewing patterns that use knits like our NEW Carolina Cap Sleeve Dress sewing pattern for Women, the NEW Women's Draped Tank pdf sewing pattern and our Women's Cowl Neck Tunic pdf sewing pattern .

I have compiled a list of some online fabric shops for you! Some of them I have used and others I continually hear great things about. In no particular order they are listed below!
