As I wrote in my blog post “Me and My Bernina“, sewing has literally gotten me through thick and thin over the years, especially here in Switzerland.

Over time, I’ve seen the sewing landscape in Geneva sharply diminish. But encouragingly, while larger outlets closed their sewing departments, small independent entrepreneurs have bucked the trend and opened shops with a small, but high quality array of fabrics and notions, and many offer their merchandise online.

To help you realise your sewing projects I’ve compiled some info about where you can find your sewing and quilting supplies locally, and also online in Switzerland, UK, and also in US, which you can read here.

Do come back to me with your feedback and suggestions if you have any to offer as it’s always great to discover a new source to feed our sewing obsession. 

Fun and informative sewing websites and blogs, some offering patterns to purchase:
