Top 30 Places To Buy Knit Fabric In The US


Working with sergers and teaching workshops on the road, I'm often asked where are the best places to find knits. I'll always urging you to check with your local shops but the truth is, not many quilt shops sell beautiful knits. If they do: I often find their offerings limited. Here are 30 stores (a mix of Brick and Morter shops, online retailers, and some that are both!) that offer up organic knits, jersey knit, ponte knits, interlock knits, and double knit fabrics for sale.

  1. Actually the title should be top 28 places to get knit fabric in the U.S. plus two outside of the U.S., not top 30 within the U.S. But good info.

    1. Thanks for stopping by if you read the list there are actually 30. For whatever reason I didn't number 29 and 30. I appreciate your strategy on bringing it to my attention.

  2. Good list, I haven't heard of some of these and am looking forward to digging through their sites. My all time favorite place to buy from is knitpop, their service is second to none and support high quality knits for a steal.

  3. Thank you for this list! I found a few sites that hopefully suit my needs on here! I am trying out Cali Fabrics because they have a ridiculous sale on a bunch of their knits! I found some that look really nice for $1.98 a yard! Hopefully the quality is good when they arrive - all the reviews I found were very positive by their customers!

    Thanks again!
