    What an interesting place! I would love to browse there for a day even though I don't sew as I did at one time in my life, I fascinated by places like this! Great, different post for the day, Indrani! Have a lovely evening!

  15. This must be a dream for designers and artists alike. I know a friend of mine will love this place. I have a question though, what role dows Switzerland have in the international textile industry? Or is this just a repository for textiles of the past?
