A couple of weeks ago, I spent a long weekend in Paris. Such a great city! My husband and I were visiting a friend – but I wanted to make time to visit at least one fabric store. I researched a little before we went, to make sure that I picked the right store – and in the end I chose the Lil Weasel. For all of you who plan to spend more time fabric shopping in Paris: I have summarized my research at the end of this post, so you can use it to make your own fabric shopping itinerary!(more…)
My Instagram followers already know (sorry for the repetition, guys ;-)), but for the rest of you: I just returned from a two week round trip in Scotland. And oh, it was a wonderful trip – not least because I was able to do some fabric shopping in Edinburgh! I am a big fan of the British indie patterns, and the fabric in which they are sewn up (I’m especially in love with Sew Over It and Tilly and The Buttons!). Somehow you don’t get that kind of fabric choices in Germany – or at least not in the shops that I usually go to (if anybody has some recommendations for fabric shops in the Munich area, please leave a comment down below!). So I was on cloud nine when I got to spend an afternoon fabric shopping in Edinburgh. I even put in some research beforehand and prepared myself with “Sewing City Guide” from The Sewing Directory. The only thing I hadn’t thought about: small businesses are not open on a Sunday in Scotland… that only left one store: Edinburgh Fabrics. But well, better than nothing!
