As soon as I realized Volksfaden
[which translates to “people’s thread”], a beautiful online fabric store was based out of Berlin, I knew I had to contact the owner, Linda Gaylord. Linda has a very cool background as a dancer and in the theatre arts (read more here
), but a few years ago re-discovered sewing and crafts, and to make things more available on “her side of the pond” she started Volksfaden. She has a blog
too where I learned about Linkle
, which is a sewing cafe. Wow, what a cool concept! Oh, Europe, you’re always so ahead of the times.
Felice and I have Linda to thank for a most comprehensive list of cool things to do and see in Berlin. It was great fun too meeting up with her for a coffee in the Mitte today. I hope to post many of her wonderful suggestions when I get back (and many will appear in the Flickr set I create at the end of my trip). Thanks, Linda! Good luck with everything!
Off to Cyprus tonight. . .
