Fabric Store

Hello Everyone-

First time posting here, I live in the Basel area and I'm looking for a fabric store where I can buy cotton/cotton velour etc so that I can start dyeing them and making little outfits etc for my daughter.

Has anyone seen any place that sells fabric? I'll also be in the Bern area on Friday the 16th of October if there is a place around there.

Thanks in advance,
Dana

Re: Fabric Store

Try http://www.modesa.ch or http://www.alja.ch. n Zürich, I really like the www.stofftrucke.ch which also belongs to modesa.

But why do you want to dye the fabric?

Re: Fabric Store

Try in Lorrach. I saw two stores closed to the train station. There are huge stores in Mulhouse too.

Re: Fabric Store

Tie dye :-) I remember my teens, filled with tie-dyed scarves and T-shirts! It is always so much fun to unpack the dyed lumps of fabric, discovering the patterns!

Re: Fabric Store

The upper floor of the Loeb department store in Berne has a great fabric section. Check it out while you are there.
