If you are a crafting newbie, or a seamstress by profession, it’s not easy to buy the fabric you want if you are new in the neighborhood. This was how it was for me back in the days, I didn’t know where to buy fabrics or any other crafting materials then. But because we lived near the Mariahilferstrasse, it became summer’s walking route – and I discovered Komolka. Nowadays, one can buy everything online, you can even get samples first before committing to buy a yards.Yet getting to touch the fabric, seeing the colors in-person is a much different experience.
You can compare all the flannel, fleece, organza, canvas, linen, vinyl, chiffon, and lightweight decor cloth, as well as outdoor and utility fabrics. You can get what you need for your drapery, tablecloths, placemats, pillow shams, lampshades, and other projects. Most of all, you can match the colors while at the store.
Vienna has a lot of fabric stores you probably haven’t discovered yet. While there are a lot of Dance clothing shops in Vienna, but in case you can’t find that specific one in the stores, you’re sure to find fabrics you can use to create a costume or two. Yep, making your cosplay costumes for Aninite and such is easy with all the fabrics stores around. And if you have a lot of time (which probably most of us have right now) here’s some you can visit to get a look at or buy stuff for your next project.

As mentioned, Komolka was the first fabric store I’ve known when I arrived in Vienna. My first needles, spools of thread, and other sewing materials were bought here. At one point, I couldn’t get a peach dress for my daughter for a friend’s wedding. So I made her one, having all the items from Komolka.
