Prague Fabric Shops

Goodbye London … Hello Prague.
I’ve been living in Prague now for almost 2 weeks. The time has flown by! I’ve spend my time  exploring the city and trying to get to know the place from the perspective of someone who lives here, rather than a tourist visiting.

Our furniture and boxes are still in storage, and wont arrive for another 2 weeks.  It’s strange to be without some many loved items.  I’m missing my sewing machine and sewing paraphernalia, especially as I have free time when I could be doing lots of sewing! So if I can’t sew, I should start investigating where I can buy fabric and other sewing items.

Step one – English to Czech translation of fabric, sewing machine, haberdashery, textiles
Step two – Research and translate websites from Czech to English
Step three – handful of metro tickets, iPhone with Google Maps and comfy shoes for a day of walking around the city.

TIP: I love taking photos with my iPhone as the photo stores GPS location, so I can always find my way back to the shop!
Here are some of the shops I found so far.

I’m looking to purchase an Overlocker but I’m having great difficulty finding a dealer in Prague. Any suggestions?

Do you know of a fabric shop I haven’t found … please let me know.
