Sewing, fabrics and craft stores in Berlin?

I'm looking for fabrics and sewing notions in Berlin. Large selection of fabrics, especially home decor would be great. Google is not helping me.

Seeing as you haven't had a reply yet, I've passed this on to my Berlin seamstress friend. Will hopefully be back with an answer (tho she's more dressmaking than home decor, but she might know anyway).

So, there's lots all over Brrlin. There's one around the corner from me but since I live far from anything, here's a link to the google search: "Schneiderbedarf Berlin"

I find google's ' chrome ' browser a workable translator when language is a problem.

There's Modulor which has a lot of art supply stuff and some fabrics.
There's also Hobbyshop Rüther, the one I know is on Goltzstr. in Schoeneberg.

I don't live in Berlin, so I can't vouch for any of these, but here's a blog post (in German) Stoffe kaufen in Berlin. BTW, if you don't speak German and look at the page through Google Translate, don't be alarmed by the text mentioning "substances". The German word Stoff can mean both fabric and, more colloquially, drugs, or substances. "Material" also refers to fabric.

One of the links there leads to this Google Map: Stoffe, Leder, Wolle in Berlin/Brandenburg. In this map, the blue markers show fabric stores.

Hope that helps!

These are the ones my friend came up with:

Stoffe Berger on Potsdamer Straße. Not been.
Frau Tulpe - also mentioned in the Stoffe kaufen in Berlin post amf posted. I went there last year, it's not exactly big, tho they do have fun stuff. But not much home decor.
Berlins Welt der Stoffe looks huge.
Frau Rieke seems to be online only.
