Shopping for fabric in Paris

My trip to Paris was full of family get together but I managed to spare two hours to do some fabric shopping. So I went straight to the Marché Saint Pierre. It is located at the bottom of the Sacré Coeur so you can even stop if on your way to Montmartre. This store is the place to go for fabric in Paris. It has been here for ever and it still has a little old school feeling. They stock all kinds of fabric and there is a really large choice whether you are in clothing, costumes, patchwork, home fabrics…

Across the road is Reine, an other fabric store well known by parisian crafters. In this same area you will find lots of smaller shops, some of them selling discount pre cut pieces of fabric (coupons).

I am not sure if these are on Lonely Planet list of places to see in Paris, but I definitely recommend them!
