Will those whose sense of humour runs on the same rails as mine, please refrain from making comments on this Thread until the OP has given permission for someone to edit it for her.

Re: Where can I buy Discount Home Home Furnishing Fabrics in Zurich?

I've been searching for years, have not found much in the way of the kinds of fabric I like here - difference of taste, I guess.

I've found the best thing is to head to Milan or France, to be honest.

In Switzerland, there is Modesa ( http://www.modesa.ch ), a large-ish store, but I can rarely find what I'm looking for there (natural fabrics, colors other than orange and lime green , etc.).

There is also a fabric store in Di Alte Fabrik in Wädenswil with a decent-ish selection, can't remember the name but it's one of the larger stores in Di Alte Fabrik, you can't miss it. Home furnishing fabrics are on the second level, IIRC.

Discount is relative term - this is Switzerland.

Seriously, a day out in Milan is your best bet.

ETA:

Seems I've had a sense of humor FAIL - sorry Longbyt.

Hi joanne, I was in coop city on bahnhofstrasse the other day and picked up a few remnants in the curtain dept for about 5 chf each, mostly plain voile but also a Winnie the pooh bit for the baby room! They only have a small basket of remnants so I wouldn't make a special trip but if you happen to be around there anyway may be worth popping in to see what's in it that day.

Barrè in Zurich - small shop, with stunning fabric
www.barre.ch

And if you are in Zurich Oberland, the fabric store in Hädlikon, Areal im Toble,is worth a visit, its emorous with a fantastic range, a few weeks ago, there was a table full of fabric rolls for Sfr5
