NÄHXT – the creative fabric house

Not only the trendy look of the store, but also the lovingly designed fashion points arouse curiosity.  Sewing and knitting are absolutely in and fun – you can feel that immediately when you enter the specialty store in Gewerbepark C12.

Out of love for needlework and creativity, Andrea Hornauer started offering courses in her own living room 20 years ago as a made-to-measure studio. This gave rise to the idea of founding NÄHXT, which has retained the „family charm of a living room“. This is also reflected in the management by the mother-daughter team Andrea and Jenny, who are happy to assist their clientele with advice and support.

A real treasure trove for creative people:

NÄHXT offers a variety of lovingly selected fabrics, haberdashery, wool, yarns, and accessories from various manufacturers on 450 m² of store space. The wide range includes wool from LANA GROSSA and LANG YARN, printed faux leather in bright colors, cotton jersey, natural rubber, and whale wool fabrics. To make the right choice, the friendly staff is available to all customers as contact persons. 

“Private Shopping” is a perfect gift idea which can be easily booked on the website.

Do-it-yourself for everyone:

With free beginner courses for the most diverse handicraft techniques the DIY passion is introduced to beginners. The motto is: „Release your inhibitions, creativity is in everyone“.

The course program ranges from beginners‘ courses to Dirndl courses. Everyone gets the help they need, no matter whether you’re a beginner or a professional.

NÄHXT has a fully equipped studio where the courses take place. Those who want to sew together with friends and do not have enough space can even rent the studio.

NÄHXT- Customized events for young and old:

NÄHXT offers a variety of event options. Whether it’s a girls‘ night out, a guys‘ night out, a bachelorette party, a baby shower, a birthday party (ages 7 and up) … NÄHXT makes it happen.

Tailor-made actions for the young and old:

Whether it’s sewing a pair of bloomers for the newborn at a baby shower, embroidering, stitching, or sewing children’s first project at birthdays, or giving free rein to creativity over a glass of champagne at bachelor (bachelorette) parties – NÄHXT has a wide range of customisable experiences that are also perfect as gifts.

Depending on the event, the right project is chosen together and sewn and celebrated together.

Creative time out with a cup of coffee:

If you are looking for a break from the stressful everyday life, the NÄHXT bar is just the right place. Over a cup of coffee or tea, you can plan your latest project, browse through books, gather ideas, or meet like-minded people.
