1  EUROPE / SCANDINAVIAN/NORDIC / Copenhagen on: April 24, 2009 02:44:08 AM
Hi everybody,

I know there is already a copenhagen topic on here, but not only is it very old and inactive, half of it is in Danish which I can't understand well enough...

My question is, does anybody have any tips for cross stitch stores in (the centre of) Copenhagen? I am going on a businesstrip there soon, and I am hoping for some shopping time...
I already found Sommerfuglen, but there must be more?

Thanks in advance for any help!
2  EUROPE / NETHERLANDS / Shops in The Netherlands (cross stitch and other crafts) on: January 08, 2009 01:20:30 AM
As a dutch ex-student I still travel around the country a lot, so I know of a few craft stores spread around the country. I'd like to share my tips, and maybe other posters know of other good stores? I look for (cross) stitching supplies mostly, but most stores carry a bit of everything.

Pipoos is all around Holland, though I find they have a small supply of cross stitching stuff.

Two great stores in Hoorn, pretty close together too:
Anjo Kleinvak (http://anjokleinvak.nl/, a large craft store with lots of yarn, fabric and other crafty stuff.
Schouten Handwerken (http://www.schoutenhandwerken.nl/), a small store that sells sewing machines, and lots and lots of yarn (the owner is a knitting fan Wink). They also have a big selection of cross stitching fabric, threads, patterns etc. (my favorite go to store!)

Naaldkunst (http://www.naaldkunst.nl/), a nice craft store with a big yarn selection, and a corner of cross stitching stuff, nice old store Cheesy

I am still looking for good stores in the vicinity of The Hague (Den Haag), Eindhoven/Helmond, Zutphen, Arnhem, Apeldoorn, Deventer, Amsterdam and Groningen. Anybody have any tips?
3  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Shops in London (cross stitch specifically) on: January 08, 2009 01:07:19 AM
Hey everybody,

I travel to London on business several times a year, but I have never been able to find a good craft store that sells cross stitch stuff (kits, thread and fabric). I know Liberty caries kits, but they weren't really my style (or price range).
Just wondering if anybody has any tips for me for shops in (Central) London?

Thanks in advance,
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Epic Mario Cross Stitch (from Sprite Stitch) on: January 07, 2009 12:30:46 PM

Before the holidays I finally finished this Mario Cross stitch. I got the pattern at Sprite Stitch: http://www.spritestitch.com/?p=247, and it took me 18 weeks (in 10 months) to finish. It is stitched on evenweave over 1 (my first non-kit project, and first on evenweave, didn't realise I needed to stitch over 2) with hand picked DMC colors.
