    Craft stores in/around Aachen, Germany/Sittard, NL

    Hello.

    I''m new to this site but thought I might find some help here.....

    We''re stationed at a very small military base in Germany sitting right on the border of The Netherlands. And unless you speak German or Dutch it''s hard to find what you''re looking for.

    I''m looking for a craft supply store for ribbon, glitter, glue, fabric and fabric paints.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Tricia

    i'm moving this to 'craft up' since it's more of a location-based thread.

    .... and i don't know if you've heard of this, but i've found this website indispensable when needing translations:

    This is a quick reply and I will look more thoroughly into it later. On my linksite (sorry it's all in Dutch) in the far right column, under 'Materialen Online' you'll find some of my favourite online suppliers in Holland. These are small often one person owned companies and I'm sure if you'd email them they'd be happy to help you out. I think Aachen should be a good town for shopping, I will look into that.
    Here's the link: http://jello.jouwpagina.nl

    Hope to be back soon.

    PS: most Dutch speak English. Germans a bit less, but they're not that much behind. You'd be worse off in France.

    Tricia,
    Here's a list of shops in Aachen: http://www.alles-in-aachen.de/_-hobb...lerbedarf.html

    A few translations: 'Kunstler' means artists, 'basteln' means crafting, 'Stoffe' means fabric, 'Farben und Lacke' means paints. I guess 'Dekoration' explains itself.

    And here's a random list for Limburg, which I got after googling on 'fabric': http://www.creatiefnetwerk.nl/netwer...2&provincie=31

    I don't know which towns are near Sittard, but at least the one shop in town is a fabric shop.

    PS: Germany is quite a crafty-minded country. My mum is half-German and whenever she had a chance, she used to shop for her materials there, simply because the choice and quality was way better than in Holland.

    Hope this helps!

    Astrid

    Hello from Germany

    Hi
    I`m German and I belong to a big crafty community which is called
    www.hobbyschneiderin.com.
    The owner of this group. Anne, is just living in AAchen and I`m shure that you?ll get a lot of help, if you `ll put your question in her forum.
    There are a lot of shops in your area, but people from Germany like to go to the markets in the Netherlands, to buy fabrics and other crafty things. I know a place in Venlo, which has all the things I need.
    Hope you`ll find, what you are looking for!
    Greetings from Essen
    seti
