Resources for Stretch Fabrics

Many of my costumes are made or incorporate stretch vinyl and spandex. Today, I’ll be sharing the places I go to when I need specific stretchy fabrics.

  1. JoAnn.com – JoAnn Fabrics can sometimes have a decent selection of stretch fabrics, especially in the fall with Halloween on it’s way. I do not recommend ordering from them online, as their in-store selection is always more vast than what’s listed online.
  2. DenverFabrics.com – This store has more variety, but again, it does have it’s downsides. The website can be a pain to navigate and it isn’t always up to date. This store is also one of the more expensive to order from. They do have a large selection of stretch fabrics, but it’s best to visit in person, or have a local friend check it out for you.
  3. Spandexhouse.com – This is hands-down my favorite store. You have a HUGE selection, but have to buy in bulk. You submit your order online, the store personally calls you, verifies information, then sends out your order. They’re very quick and I consider them very affordable for how much you get.

There’s other places to order from, as usual, but these are my big places to go to. I’m sure if I can’t find what I need from these places, I’ll branch out, but until then I’m satisfied with this grouping.

    I’ve also had great luck with Spandex World (www.spandexworld.com), and cross shop between that and Spandex House all the time.
