fabric shopping in berlin - volksfaden & hüco
Earlier this week my mom and I went to my favorite German city - Berlin! I love just about everything about the city and I'm secretly dreaming of moving there one day. One of things I love most about Berlin is that there are many creative people, thus many gorgeous fabric stores!
On our last trip there we went to two store:
Volksfaden in Schöneberg. Getting there is super easy - take the S1 to Julius-Leber-Brücke and there's a small boardwalk that leads right to the Volksfaden shop.
All the decorations in the shop a very cute and the selection of fabrics is amazing - soo many gorgeous fabrics! We've had a hard time choosing but I ended up with a bunch of Christmas fabrics. Making plans for a christmas quilt in August? Yepp, that's totally me.
We also went to hüco - it's a wholesale but the prices are just like in any other fabric store (if not even more expensive.). What's great about the shop is that it's a huge warehouse full of fabrics and zippers etc. The selection is endless! We didn't end up buying anything but it's nice to know that there's a store that offers a huge selection of fabrics for sewing clothes, costumes, etc.
