fabric shopping

International fabric shopping recommendations, come at me!

In just over a week, Luke and I will be heading to Europe! Much excitement here right now. Luke is attending conferences in Germany and the Netherlands, and I’m tagging along. Then we’re heading to Iceland together for 10 days!

Of course, I’ll be hoping to get some fabric souvenirs from the trip ;P – they’re the best kind, right? So, if you happen to know of any cool fabric shops I should check out in Jena (unlikely, but you never know), Amsterdam/Leiden (probably most places in the Netherlands, really, it’s quite easy to zip about by train there) or Reykjavik, please let me know!

I have been doing some holiday preparation sewing, but it’s of a fairly boring variety – lots of merino! Leggings for Luke and I, long-sleeved tops for us both. I have about a million projects I want to start, but due to work my sewing is being done in tiny snippets here and there, and I haven’t been able to make half the things I planned!

Because I don’t like posts without pictures, here’s one of the lovely dude I’m fostering at the moment for The Lonely Miaow – Sylvester!

  1. Sounds like a great trip. I want to visit Iceland since like forever! I think you can better buy yarn in Iceland, but Amsterdam is great for fabric shopping. They have whole fabric markets there and the fabric is always very inexpensive. Too bad you’re going to Jena, that is too far away from where I live. Otherwise we could have met!
    Have a great trip!
