“I love your designs and I can’t wait to get started! Where can I buy quality swimwear fabric?”
Great question! Many fabric retailers require a high minimum yardage purchase, which isn’t helpful for individuals or small business owners. Here are some great resources for buying smaller amounts of fabric. If you run a swimwear business, you'll want to find a consistent shop you know you can rely on. Plus, it's nice to find a shop that has all the latest trendy fabrics in stock!

Facebook "Destashing" Groups
There are countless Facebook groups for fabric "destashing," which means everyday people getting rid of excess fabric they don't plan to use. This is a great way to get discounted fabrics, but also use your judgment, since you are buying from a profile on the Internet, not a vetted business.
Here are some groups that destash swimwear fabrics:
