Straus Knitting Mills is a US company that specializes in athletic materials. In addition to the knit trims, they also carry a selection of knit fabrics. There are minimum quantities that must be ordered, varying between 25 and 50 yards depending on weight. Their prices and customer service are exceptional. Someone always responded within 24 hours, but usually quicker.

Stitch Werkx Custom Embroidery is a locally operated family business. All of the tops that were screen printed were great quality. No bubbles, peeling or other issues. Their prices are competitive. The owner always returned phone calls promptly, and also picked up and delivered the order at no additional charge.

Vogue Fabrics is also an exceptional company. 15 yards of black double knit were needed for this project. When ordered originally from Vogue Fabrics they called the same day to say that it was on backorder, and wouldn’t arrive in time for this project. They promptly cancelled my order. After fruitless attempts to find this weight of black double knit, Vogue Fabrics was able to track down a very similar double knit in weight and hand and sold it for the same price as the original double knit that was on backorder even though it was more expensive than the type ordered and was one yard longer.
