The RainShed is a long time seller of good quality polar fleece and other outdoor technical fabric. They also carry many of the findings you need for your project, such as zippers, foldover elastic binding, webbing and closures, etc. For many years they were located in Corvallis, OR, but moved in August, 2013, to Albany, OR, about 30 miles away.
The new location has the same backroom wholesaler feel as the previous shop. No attempt has been made to display the fabric enticingly as would be in most retail shops. This isn't a complaint, just a description. I suspect (and forgot to ask) that much of their business is via the internet or by phone.
The quality of fabric is excellent and they carry a variety of colors and types of fabric. One handy thing is the sample sheets they sell. I bought 4 or 5 sample sheets of 200w polar fleece, wind bloc fleece and wind pro, and a couple of others. These will help you select the right fabric and at $1 per sample sheet are a good investment if you often use these specialized fabrics.
I was glad to see that they were still in business. By the way, they are in a downtown market building and were a little hard to find. Believe your gps; they are located in the Two Rivers Market.
