Where can I find tweed for my interior?

Does anyone have a good web site where I can buy good stretchable tweed to cover my interior panels? Also someone posted a good location to buy foam and I have now lost that web site. I never realized that finding a good fabric would be this hard.
Thanks

Give me a couple days and ill have my tweed samples up on the internet, im working on my online catalog as we speak.

As for foam, do you mean roll foam, as in thin foam (1/4"), or block foam?

Sorry. I havent had my computer. Dont know if you saw my post in the Hotrodders lounge or not, had some horrible ad-ware attached to my computer and had to take it in to get fixed. I will grab my tweed card today and scan them tonight. Got an email address? Ill just send them straight to your email rather than waiting till i find time to post them again.

The carpet edging i make myself with the material thats used in the car. Cut a 2" long strip. Sew it face down at the edge of the carpet with a 1/4" seam allowance. Then spray the strip and backside of the carpet with glue and fold it around. You see no seams and dont have to buy carpet binding.

Krist,
If doing flames should I use "sherpa" or "shire" tweed? Flames or any design work.
