Stoffmarkt Holland

On saturday I visited the "Stoffmarkt Holland". Which is a fabric market. Mostly fabric merchants from the Netherlands, but also German sellers are touring through germany and spreading some dutch market culture. They are near Berlin, in Potsdam, once or twice a year, and every time lots and lots of crafty folk, some quilters, but mostly people who sew clothes, travel far to get there.

Though we do have a fabric market in Berlin, where mostly turkish sellers are present (and with the lowest fabric prices ever!!) I was in search of something specific and here in Berlin, it wasn't available on the weekly market.
My boyfriend and my girlfriend both had no time to accompany me, so I went there alone. And I did spend a lot of money. There were two or three sellers of quilting fabrics, and there was an incredible variety of batiks there, and they were 5-7 Euros cheaper than in online shops/brick and mortar stores.

I got 2 meters of batik fabrics, and a fat-quarter-package, 8 FQ's for 10 Euros, and 1 metre of printed cotton from Senegal. There was a binational couple who had imported the fabric themselves.

And besides the quilting fabric, I got some metres of ramie, to make some trousers for me, since the last ones I made are now a bit worn out. Especially where my behind meets the saddle of my bike, they have worn thin.

On my way back on the train, I spun. I'm spinning for a sweater right now, and I finished the first skein and I spin the second one now. Today, the weather was a lot better than on the weekend, and I went to the park and took some pics of my newest handspun yarn:
