I was wondering if anyone could recommend any places for cloth and associated supplies in the Netherlands? I'm moving to The Hague in seven weeks and whilst I've stocked up on a few basics here I know it won't be long before I'm missing the feel of new cloth!

 

Many thanks in advance.

@ Hanna,

 

What do you mean with cloth merchants and or supplies?

Wholesale or shops and or markets?

Wools, linings, canvas, chalk, threads etc... shops and markets mainly. I've read that there are good markets in The Hague but have a feeling they're more dressmaking fabrics than wools I'd want to use for tailoring. 

 

Amsterdam isn't too far away from me so happy to travel (need to go their regularly for other stuff anyway!)

Hanna,

 

Imo Amsterdam is more provided with stuff like that than The Hague (due to the WFC overhere) I can give you a list of them here in Amsterdam,

but give me  week for it. Or give me a phone call when you have arrived.

Thank you Fronno. I'll drop you a line when I get there next month :) Lists are also great!
