Good sewing fabric stores around Zurich?

I'd like to make some clothes for my daughter and would like to find a local store - or even in D or F if necessary - that sells good cotton jersey fabric, preferably in bright kid/Scandinavian style patterns. Anyone know of anything that might fill this bill?

Here's a previous thread with some helpful advice. I've only been to Naeh Szene on Talacker and found it small and overpriced. Some of the other links in that thread look very promising. Let me know if you check any of them out.

I think there's a Modesa in Zurich.
The one in Lausanne has cotton jersey.

Re: Good sewing fabric stores around Zurich?

I've seen cute kids' fabric in the Bernina store. I also heard from a friend (though didn't check it out myself) that there is nice Scandinavian patterns at a place across from Migros Brunau. I don't remember the name but it's hard to miss. It's got a side entrance and the display window is eye level or a bit below the sidewalk. It's the only kid's boutique on the entire block. the catch is there are weird opening hours. Sorry I can't provide more info, next time I'm in the neighborhood I'll try and jot down the details.
