Why is it that stores do not have sweatshirt fabric? I got a new Baby Lock machine so I thought I would make and embrioder a sweatshirt but can not find fabric. Any suggestions????

I have the same problem here. No sweatshirt fabric. I was able to buy it all the time. You could look at some of the fabric stores that are whole saler's but sell to the public. I bought a few pieces on line. hope this helps somewhat.

Jo-Ann's has a small selection of sweatshirt fleece that is mixed in with the polar fleece at the store where I shop. They had the standard heather grey, black and red. It's on sale for 40% off through Dec. 24rth.

I missed it yesterday on my shopping trip. Will have to wait now to get out of town again. Anyone order from online? How did that work out and where did you find it?

I recently bought some sweatshirt fabric from:

http://www.naturesfabrics.com Do a search for cotton fleece. I bought the printed, regular weight stuff. Not really beefy, but very soft for a light weight sweatshirt.

Yes, it is very hard to find! In my opinion, the limited selection at Joann is also not very good quality. I have been hesitant to order online because the prices are so high and I fear the quality will also not be there. I would love to hear about great quality sweatshirt fabric that will not break the bank!

I recently got some nice oatmeal and a soft green from Fabric.com.
Stretchy but not too hot and 60" wide. They usually have % off coupons if you search online.
