Clothes fabric in Basel?

Hi all, I have been looking for fabric for making clothes ( ESP baby and kids) here in Basel, to no avail!! I have found that places like ikea and Mi Casa only sell curtain fabric.
Where can I find a good selection of NON curtain fabric??

Moveda has a good range - it's situted above oschner shoes near marktplatz. Also out on the Ikea estate in Pratteln there a fabric shop, can't remeber the name, but it's on the opposite side of the road from Luminart in the same building as Navy Boot.

Moveda is extremely expensive and limited choices (in my book)

If you have a car, it is absolutely worthed to take the trip to Mulhouse! You'll find many stores there (huge!) with tonnes of choices and very good price!

Re: Clothes fabric in Basel?

Unfortunately Nil is right, anything in Basel will be too expensive! I would buy across the border the difference is just ridicluous

Example:

1 meter square of stuffing for a quilt in Basel 26 CHF, in the Netherlands 3.50 Euro (and this was 1 meter x 1,50 meters!)
