Fabric stores

I'm still alive, yes. I'm a really bad blogger, yes. I'm trying hard - please give me some credit for that.

After living in the Big City for what? 1..2..3..4....oh wow - 9 months already?! I thought it was time I posted some of the stores I get my material from...

I've shopped a whole lot these past few months and here are some fabric stores in Hamburg. Some of them I've been to, others are still on my list.

The one I have been to the most is definitely the STOFFCENTRUM. Probably 

because it is closest to my office. They have a wide variety of fabric, but not as many different ones in one fabric. So you shouldn't go there in search of specific fabric. They frequently vary their products and displays. So everytime you go there it looks different and they have new stuff, some of the old stuff is gone, etc. You never know what you'll find the next time! Their prices are low, so that's a big plus for me! The fabric ranges from fleece, to wool, to cotton and furnishing fabrics.

The next one is amazing. It's really big and they have pretty much everything. I just discovered it a few weeks ago. It's close to my school - so that's good! The prices are okay...Not the cheapest, but if you keep looking, you can find something in your price range. The fabrics they have are mainly for clothing, furniture and sewing equipment.

Glückmarie is a tiny little store packed with all kinds of decor fabric. I'd say the fabric is mainly used for little things. They have all kinds of patterns in every color range. When I buy fabric there I want to sew new little pouches or things for children (bibs etc). They also sell things they sewed themselves including clothing and accessories.

And then the amazing fabric section in Karstadt. The first time I went there I stood there for about five minutes. Speechless. Then I think I spent 1 1/2 hours there in total. Looking throught all the fabric. Sheer fabric, thick fabric. Fabric in uni colors, fabric with patterns. Fabric for clothing, fabric for little projects. Seriously. They have everything. Definitley going back there.
