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.

Starting in no particular order...

Keep scrolling down for International fabric stores.

Some great International options too:

If you know of any more, please let me know in the comments below!

A quick personal note:
Yes, there are lots of groups on Facebook that sell fabric but personally I prefer an actual store site to shop at, that's why there are no fb fabric groups listed above but feel free to add any that you use/love in the comments below.
Also, please remember that there are many FB groups that sell 'custom' fabric but they break the copyright laws. So that perfect Harry Potter fabric or Mickey Mouse fabric that you see is probably not licenced and you are supporting something that is in fact illegal.

I utilise affiliate links throughout my blog as a way to help me keep crafting. If you click on an aff link, I receive a very small amount from it at NO cost to you.   So please help me to keep CraftyRie up and running by clicking on my aff links! Many thanks, Rie

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!
