I buy my cottons at the famous Albert Cuyp street market in the centre of Amsterdam, but could not find the right yarn.
I live in the North of Amsterdam. This quarter is seperated from Amsterdam Centre by the water of the river the IJ. It is a big quarter, but there are very few quality shops and there is only one shop were I can buy yarn, needles and others stuff I need for my sewing. The shop is called 'Zipper' ('Rits' in Dutch). There is a Quilt Shop in this part of Amsterdam, but is only open on Fridays and Saturdays and it is miles away. Zipper is 300 yards away from my home! In the Zipper I find multicolor thread that looks thin enough to try for my samplers. There are very few quilters in The Netherlands and I have to find my yarn at the Internet.
The tutorials of Joanne, part of the challenge, are very clear and informative. It helped a lot.
I still looking for the fillers a like the best and I had to practice echoing a lot. So I have to quilt a lot more samplers.
Thanks everybody for your kind words!
