11. Wollen Berlin – I will still have to visit this shop. Go to S/U-bahn Warschauer Straße. I would walk from there then turn right to Revalerstraße, up to Modersohnstraße. Turn left and walk one block. The Moderstraße will change to Gärtnerstraße.
Gärtnerstrasse 32, 10245 Berlin
1. Knopfloch – S-Bahnbogen 105 (Dirksenstr.105)
Go to Alexa Shopping center at the famous Alexanderplatz and out the south exit/entrance. The Knopfloch (“Buttonhole”) is located under one of the arches of the train rails of the S-Bahn.
They have a lit bit of everything here. Knitting, sewing, patchwork, embroidery. There are also rare Clover items.
2. Handmade Berlin – Auguststr. 91
Get off U-Bahnhofe Oranienburger Straße Station. Auguststraße is near that station.
This yarn shoppe has lots of luxurious yarns and knitting supplies. I especially like those from japan. They have displays of finished knitted items but I especially liked a kimono-style jacket, in black with red accents–it made me feel like making knitted clothings that is not a sweater or shawl.
3. Idee shops – These are all over Germany´s largest cities. In Berlin there are 2 branches.
a. in KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens “Shopping house of the West”) at Passauerstraße 1-3
Go to the Passauer exit/entrance. The shop is at the basement while the workshop/courses at the 1st floor near the entrance. They are renovating the yarn and embroidery section.
This store has everything from textiles and needleworks to papers and art supplies to office supplies and scrapbooking.
b. in Kant-Center at Wilmersdorfer Straße 108-111 (you can see the idee logo on the lower left of the picture). They do not have fabrics here and limited yarns too.
4. Hobbyshop Rüther – There are 4 shops in Berlin.
The Main Shop is at Goltzstrasse 37 in Berlin- Schöneberg and is near my apartment. It is composed of 4 different shops: the main house (office supplies, needlework, handicrafts books, etc.), the Bead shop, the ceramic store (clays and oven for rent) and an art store.
The other shops are off Berlin Center.
Berliner Straße 90/91 in Berlin-Tegel.
Kollwitzstraße 54 in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg
I have been here once but I should say compared to the main stores, this store is small and very limited.
and in Breite Straße 30 in Berlin-Spandau Altstadt.
5. Frau Tulpe – Veteranenstraße 19 in Berlin-Mitte
This store has lots of yummy printed fabrics, like those from Japan. They have an online shop and you can see more of the prints there. Their affordable sewing courses are famous, they are fully booked til summer this year.
6. Babie Lato – Schönhauser Allee 182a near U-Bahnhof Rosa Luxemburg Platz.
This store has natural fabrics like linens, cottons, silks. They have lots of rare fabrics here and the price is great. They also have fabrics for curtains.
7.Werken Spielen Schenken – Schloßstraße 110b near U-Bahnhof Schloßstraße.
It has Toys, Crafts(includes needlework supplies) and Art Supplies departments. And they have an eatery if you get hungry.
Thanks to Anita of stitchalicious for sharing this store.
8. Berlins Welt der Stoffe – Schwedenstr. 9 / Eingang Residenzstr. 84 13359 Berlin
This looks really like the world of textiles.

9. Die Klöppelstubbe is a bobbin lace store in the Nikolai are in Berlin, near Alexanderplatz and the City Hall. They celebrated 10 years of existence in 2010. Look for the owner, Ilona Kühn. They also offer courses. There are also souvenir items from the Erzgebirge for tourists.
