Where to buy knit, jersey & stretch fabric in Australia

Stretchy fabric perfect for trousers, tops, dresses and even undies but where do you buy it in Australia? 
Ahh, I've solved that problem for you and listed below are stores stocking stretchy/knit fabric.

Oh look, a bear jumper!

I fell in love with this pattern the first time I saw it and when I knitted it up, the kids loved it too and I've been toying with the idea of grading it up to an adult size of me or for my hubby!

Yarn lovey stuff and something a little bit, well, icky.

It's just finished a long cold, dreary winter here in Australia, so I thought I'd do a quick yarnie catch-up before we fall into a fun-filled spring!

A fun sewing project straight from my sewing machine, a book for 'quiet time' to give me a few moments of peace every now and then!

a sample knit for Laney

I was testing out some sample dyed yarn that I made, it was a 200gm ball - fun to dye with but very labour intensive in process.

I like how it knitted up but I'm still unsure if I should dye to sell but that's how it goes, test & test again but hey, at least Laney likes it!

A skirt with a secret...

Don't faint of shock or anything but I actually made myself something (instead of something for kids). A  skirt but not just any skirt, this skirt has an actual hidden secret ........
