Where To Buy Exercise Fabric: A Global List Now Available!

I am an activewear sewing fanatic (some examples here.)  I sew all the time, I run (slowly) a lot, so it makes perfect sense to make my own running gear.  There are a few of us online who blog about our sewing of running tights, bathing suits, yoga tops and what nots.  Like me, Melissa of Fehr Trade has had folks ask her where they can buy fabrics like supplex or spandex for sewing up their exercise gear. Melissa (who is an accomplished marathon runner and seamstress) has compiled an international list of retail shops who sell this great stuff.  It includes both online and brick & mortar stores where you can shop for sweat-wicking, fun prints, fabulous lycras, spandex, supplex, nylon, athletic mesh, lames, and a boatload more in the UK, U.S., Europe, Australia and Canada.  If you know of any more shops anywhere in the world, Melissa asks you share it in the comment area on the post.  I was able to add a pile of shops to the list but I KNOW there are more... please share, y'all!

  1. That's awesome, Kathy! I'm not in exercise-clothes sewing gear at the moment, but it's great to have this list of resources if the mood strikes!
