Are there any good fabric shops in Geneva?

I am looking for a good fabric shop in the Lake Geneva Region. I need to find some tulle for a skirt i am making. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks

I think C&A on the main shopping road with the trams has fabric.

Neither Bon Génie (now called Globus) or C&A sell fabric in Geneva. C&A closed down their fabrics section at least fifteen years ago!

Try GRAS on Rue Coutance (opposite the main entrance to Placette/Manor), or ALJA 26 Rue de la Terrassière (it's on the first floor above another shop).
If you've got transport then Mondial Tissus in Ville-la-Grand, Annemasse http://www.mondialtissus.fr/nos-magasins/annemasse is probably the cheapest option as well as the best stocked.
