Where do you guys like to buy your fabrics for making your own gear? My wife and I are starting to make some of our own stuff.

I'm interested in nylon like the kind Montbell uses in their windproof garments, sil-nylon or fabric for making packs, nice stretchy poly/spandex blends for base layers.

http://www.owfinc.com/ has fairly cheap material, I use this the most

http://www.questoutfitters.com/ is similar but I've never used it, just looked at their site

http://thru-hiker.com/materials/index.php has some state of the art materials at a little high prices, never used them though

http://www.seattlefabrics.com/ a little more expensive but they have some stuff that others don't, like polyester spinnaker fabric

just noticed you're in Western Washington, Seattle Fabric has a nice store in Seattle.

I've ordered from Quest Outfitters. For bulk silnylon, I've ordered from Noah Lamport. It's not on their website, you have to call to find out what colors they have available.
