What can you do in Berlin any Saturday morning?
In the same street where the Turkish grocery market takes place, there’s a place for sewing, handmade products and fabric lovers. The market in Maybachufer opens from 11am to 5pm every saturday since 2010 offering a huge variety of fabrics and sewing accessories at really economic prices. Fabrics usually range between 2€ and 4€/meter, so that you get an idea.
Over the past few months we’ve been mastering (I should actually rather say ‘practicing’) our sewing technique. Each one of us is involved in a personal project of their own but we usually meet in sewing day-long sessions and like to visit cute shops in search of ideas, beautiful fabrics and other baby-like, vintage and cheesy stuff. A shop we like, in Veteranenstraße 19 (10119-Berlin), is Frau Tulpe, and there’s also Volksfaden in Crellestr. 17 (10827-Berlin). But neither of them have highly affordable prices like the market at Maybachufer.

At the market I also had the opportunity to meet the author of Dirk’s Big Bunny Blog. The following is one of his cartoons that specially struck home because I’ve been beging to have the wall finally clean of dead mosquitoes for MONTHS now!!!
Anyway, Paula and I had a good laugh with most of Dirk’s cartoons.
I also got to know the stand of Sárkány. I was interested in one of their yellow pendants to put as a brooch on my new dress.
After a morning enjoying the last remaining days of bright sun (sigh) in Berlin, I head off to my beloved Bergmannstraße.
