is it unfair to tell you that this shop is just 30min away from my town? :P

...

Completely unfair, but I'm happy to hear it actually exists and somebody has access to it. I would go for the buttons alone! LOL

Sometimes the hunt for the quality fabric is fun.  :D

Thanks for posting about it.

II usually try to work in a bit of fabric shopping when on holiday  I've not been to Graz but I have fabric shopped in Vienna- which was quite expensive.
Last summer I had a load of fabric shopping lined up in Berlin but it just got so hot I abandoned most of the shopping.
This summer we are thinking of the Outer Hebrides where I'm.hoping nit to be too hot.... I can hear the Harris tweed calling....

Thank you @Efemera for that kind offer, but these have now arrived and the colours are good for the jacket.

Only problem is they need a bigger buttonhole than the Singer buttonholer will make in one pass, so I now have to decide between:
  using the buttonholer and shunting the fabric along and then back to make a longer buttonhole   >:)
  using the 4-step buttonhole on the Husqvarna, which nearly always ends up with non-parallel sides ><
  hand sewing the buttonholes  :thread:
  making bound or piped buttonholes  :S

At the moment I'm leaning towards the bound variety, but ...
