Fabric Shopping In Riyadh


As I recently said I would take pics on my next fabric shopping trip and I did. I bought DD along to be my camera girl, so these are all taken by her. These are of just one store, I don't know the name but all the fabrics in here are 10SAR per meter which translates to $2.67 USD per meter or 1.70 GBP.  I did visit a couple of other shops but I did not get the time that I needed since it was late and shops were starting to close up as a matter of fact I didn't even make it to the notions shop. 

There is no cutting table in the store, you just call one of the 3 or 4 men that are walking around and they just cut it right there and send it to the front for you.
While it is mostly some form of polyester and light weight cottons I have found some gems since I found this shop a few months ago. They do have a large selection of fabrics from chiffon to faux leather, knits, poly velvets, lace, and corduroy. 








Until next time, happy sewing...

I would not know where to start, so much fabric. The first time I went into a fabric shop I came out with nothing! I just walked around slack-jawed. I calmed down, had a coffee then went back in with a list.!
