i'd say the best place to look for sweatshirt material is ebay...i've had real trouble trying to find that fabric in the uk too.

Have you tried one of the markets yet?

The market in Walthamstow is really good for fabric, there is also a good selection of fabrics in the fabric shop on Ridley Road market (Hackney) or I saw a few fabric shops in the vicinity of Brixton in the market area.

I think there is also an earlier discussion link with where to buy fabric. I see whether I can find it (edited- if you just search this board for 'fabric' that brings up a number of older threads on this topic).

pm me if you're interested in more details on any of the markets.

Shepherds bush is great, not just the market but the aladdin's cave of fabric shops on th Goldhawk road!! I could spend a mint and about 2 days just wandering through. It's reasonably priced too and you can easily get a discount if they're in a good mood.
