Last week our little friendship quilting group and I went down to the old shopping district of Riyadh to hunt for ribbons and trims and anything else that could be useful for our quilt projects. These are the wholesale suppliers for the rest of the more fancy shops in the newer "malls" of the city. It's dusty and dirty (bring your hand wipes!) but you never know what you're going to find down there and the prices are cheaper than even in the USA!
Rolls and rolls of ribbon - velvet, organdy and satin - in all sorts of colors and widths.
