My reccomendations are:

I'll start having a look around for internet craft shops too, so we can have a list of those as well as local ones.

I thought of you lot yesterday while we were in Edwinstow.

What used to be one of my favourite shops for Incense, candles and fine crafts, is now just a knitting and sewing shop and it has alsorts of things in it.

 

Just thought I would let you know.:thumbsup:

Thanks Viking :) .

 

I've just Googled Edwinstow and came up with these. Is the shop you mentioned one of those? I think a visit might be in order.

 

EDIT: Bugger. It looks like that webpage has frames so the link only goes to the front page. The page with the craft shop listing can be reached by clicking on 'arts and crafts'.

Just like to add a bit about the aforementioned Wye Needlecraft.

 

Several weeks ago (Probably months by now!) I ordered a chart as they hadn't got it in stock, I was assured delivery would be within 28 days and was quite happy with that. More than that time went by and no chart so I rang them up and quiried it, they said there was a problem with the supplier and that it should be with me in around two weeks, 2 days later it turned up, funny how a phone call got their bums into gear!

Thanks Becky B. Web of Wool is a good online shop. I added it to the shops section in the 'recommended knitting links' thread a little while ago, if I remember correctly. I'll go and check :) .

 

EDIT: Yes, it's there.

Whichcraft is a fab shop - it used to be in Broomhill but has moved to John Street, just off London Road near CCC Outdoors. Really helpful staff as well.

 

I like the stall on The Moor too - has loads of sewing bits, but also paper/card and beads and stuff.
