At the base of the Sacre Ceour is the materials district. Street after street of shops selling fabric and sewing notions. It is fabulous!

If you get off the metro at Anvers and walk toward the Sacre Ceour, you will actually walk through these streets.

Don't buy in the first shop when there. I find that the same material wil be in a few shops and you can usually find it cheaper if you keep looking.

Enjoy!

Try Dominique Pique in the Marais.

Wonderful silk screened prints.
