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.
