Incase you didn't know, it's the first day of blogtoberfest, which means a month of extra-special-kenny-burger blogging and giveaways all across this sphere! To find out who's playing, more details and how to sign-up, go here.
Today, I'm sharing some pics from my fabric shop finding mission the other day. There are no Spotlight or Lincraft equivalents here. People sew, but mostly for a living - tailors and seamstresses. There are a couple of streets in old Madrid (Calle del Marqués Viudo de Pontejos and Calle de Imperial) where you can find small fabric stores and haberdashery supplies. These shops are classic ~ old school, over-the-counter service. It's all very structured and you need to know what you want. Needless to say I was "just looking" the first time!
The fabric stores remind me of the ones that were around when I was a kid in Australia - pretty traditional fabrics and LOTS of synthetic fibres. I looked at many stores and didn't find one bolt of linen.
So the search continues. I know of a good fabric store on the Grand Via and have been there a few times ~ I will keep you posted if I find some more, and actually buy some fabric!
Have a great weekend!
