        I am a professional seamstress but since living here have been unable to find any shops that sell dress making fabrics. Can anyone help

            Hi Penguin – I’ve got fed up looking in this area too! There’s not a great selection but there is some in the small sewing shop called Mimika in the square at Aghios Nikolaos – also the best supply in the town – as you leave the square and go down over the hill back to the Marina (not the lake) on your right hand side there is a fabric shop with quite a good selection. You may be able to pick up something a the big shop on the corner at the traffic lights on the Heraklion/Elounda junction – she has some dress fabrics on the downstairs floor. We have a small sewing group during the winter months and always have a good moan about the lack of good dress fabrics! We have found some online suppliers that will send out to Crete, so worth having a look. Good luck!

                Thanks for the help. I have looked in both of the shops you had mentioned but have not found what I wanted. I will look again. Where do you get together during the winter months? Can you tell me what online suppliers you have used please.

                    We get together at each others houses in the Aghios Nikoloas area. Usually once a week for a chat and to share our projects whether they be sewing/knitting/crochet/etc.

                    One of the online companies that despatch o Greece is Cotton Patch, not cheap but good quality fabrics.

                    Hope you find something.

                        I have bought some nice fabrics at the street markets in Chania and Rethymno at a very reasonable price. Maybe you could try a market near you. Good luck :)
