Fabrics make you happy. That's a fact. This may not apply to everyone, but it certainly applies to every seamstress. A stash fabrics is a wonderful 'thing' to own. It keeps you sewing or planning the next sewing project!
Where do you buy fabric nowadays?
There used to be fabric stores in every medium-sized city. Sometimes large, deep buildings with lots of tables full of fabrics, or small shops with limited but up-to-date stock. The newest trends and the newest fashion fabrics. It is (or was) always great to look for beautiful fabrics or an affordable coupon.
Unfortunately, there are only a few physical fabric stores in the Netherlands. Mainly in the big cities, which are not accessible to everyone.
Markets and fabric events
But there are still the markets and fabric events. Or sometimes you can but fabrics at pop-up stores. But, since February 2020, because of the corona-crisis, these markets, fabric events and pop-up stores are forbidden because of the large public and the danger of infections spreading around..
We all hope that the fabric events and markets will come back as soon as possible, because nothing is as fun as a fabric event where you can buy the most beautiful fabrics or find just what you have been looking.
The fabric stores are mostly still open, but it is advisable to check their policy about opening hours and corona-rules.
