The most famous haberdashery in central Madrid is always kept filled to the brim with clients who share a great love of sewing and crafts and who are constantly fighting not to lose their turn in the queue. They sell wool, buttons, beads, embroidery, beading, lace, bobbin lace, ribbons, fabrics, upholstery, scissors, needles, thimbles and generally everything anyone needs to customise their own creations and make unique pieces. Pontejos is one of those places worth visiting, even if you don't buy anything. They also teach courses in crochet, patchwork and other related crafts.
