Fabric and Yarn Shopping

I am a fibre nut, and will be in Merida over Christmas (I have been before about 17 years ago). Any fabric stores around town? I have heard of Parasina (sp?). Also, would love to know of any hidden yarn gems. Thanks!

I just wanted to update everyone on my visits to the fabric stores, unfortunately couldn't spend much time in them, but did see some very nice linen. I'll need a 2 month stay In Merida, if I really want to fabric shop LOL!

I went to the one in el centro, it was too much too take in, in just for 20 mins or so. So next time. I did go to some notions stores as well, oh my gosh! I thought I had gone to notion heaven.

So fellow sewers, it's a sewing paradise! Go for it. Some very nice scissors at one of the shops; real, proper metal, fabric cutting scissors.

There is a very nice yarn shop in Merida Centro. It is Salamon on 65 between 58 and 56 near the old Post office. Around that area there are other craft shops too including ones that sell the cotton for making hammocks from fine to thick at a really good price.

How funny! I JUST saw that place about a week ago... there seems to be quite a collection of yarn and string in a billion colors. Not sure if there is the same selection of materials, but its the best place I've seen in Merida so far.
