i have been looking on the net (feels like forever) then i thought the best people to ask are you.
does anyone know of any good fabric places (in europe outside costs me a fortune in customs coming into portugal)
i want to make some old looking vintage style clothes, with pretty small print etc you know what i mean and also lace maybe i can make little outfit from that.
another project i have meant to do and this year i am going to do it. i see so many beautiful clothes on teddies and want to have a go. i have done the odd dress but i need to spend more time on this,
thanks for reading guys hope someone can help
Germany has a big craft centre that caters for just about everything........and they have an extensive range of fabrics. I just checked their website and they DO deliver all over Europe. It's www.buttinette.de - might be worth a look!
Otherwise - charity shops and flea markets........
thanks for the tips guys, we have finely got charity shops here now so i'm off to have a look tomorrow.
i will look at that site in germany to thanks Maria.
And Julia you have just made my day i have just joined a new group here of expats that make things and we are hopping to do lots of craft fairs and even looking at opening a shop and dividing the cost and amongst the group (30 of us now)we have lots of quilters so i am off to give them a call as i know they brought all there lovely fabrics from the uk to here ( as fabric shops are non-exsistant)
i also had another thought the portuguese are amazing at lace making and they hold classes near me so i am going to see if they see their lace.
once again big thankyou i new you would have some idea
