Help with CNC wiring!

Hi everyone,
I am a CNC newbie, just assembling my foam cutter, and need to extend the wiring to stepper motors... I am not able to source this where I live, but am visiting the US in a couple of weeks, so am planning to order from mouser or similar..the motors are bipolar type, 1.8A, and the wiring I need to extend (by max. 2m) is labelled as 24AWG.Does anyone have any recommendations, from Mouser or otherwise? I'd really appreciate a nudge in the right direction!

If my memory serves, I got my wires from the local home store (Home Depot) and used common wiring usually used for sprinkler controls. Nothing really exotic. I did use silicone insulated wire for the power to the bow because I liked the flexibility of it...available at the hobby shop...normally used for RC battery leads.
