Fabulous Fabric Fair*

*It's not really a "fair," but I'm trying to keep the alliteration going, so just pretend.

For a city of it's size, Eindhoven doesn't seem to have a lot of fabric stores. I can only think of a couple. To make up for this though, we have a weekly fabulous fabric market fair on Tuesday in the city center. This is way better than a measly fabric store!

Tuesday Fabric Market

Need some denim? Here, how about a selection of about a zillion different types!

Oh, you don't need denim? Well, here's another selection of goodies to peruse. I kinda like the banana fabric personally, thought I'm not sure what I'd use it for. Maybe an apron.

Oh I love this post. I had fabric as first on my list because I am a quilter but then I had to make a picture of my stash and I had already enough pictures in my collage. And I also love your post because it is the market in Eindhoven, and that is the city where I was born and lived a big part of my life.Very near that same marketplace and I even worked there.Oh my goodness nostalgia :)))) I am going to follow you.BTW I like your pictures with the fabric stalls. I can never pass one without having a long look.

Now if I just had a decent sewing machine! I love looking at fabric and have dreams of creating nifty things. I'm not that talented.

Wow that took me back, because I've been to the market/fair in Eindhoven. We once lived near Heerlen, so it was a hop, skip and a jump.

I'm jealous. We have fabric stores by the plenty here in Portland, but not like that, and not so conveniently located.

I am really wanting to move there... aside from the language barrier and the lack of sunshine, I think it would be ideal! You must be in heaven once a week!

Amanda said...

Hang on, I'm coming! Just as soon as I get my passport updated and buy a plane ticket! :)
