Hey there all,
Just doing my part to keep this thread alive.
I come from Canada and arrived here in September to teach English in Tower Hamlets (rough school-- kids bring screwdrivers to class NOT because they have things to fix). I haven't had a whole lot of time (or space) to craft in. Totally missing it, and looking to get back into things.
I live in Poplar and haven't found any shops around that carry the kinds of supplies I had to leave behind in Canada. . . beads, findings, pliers. . . and I am suffering withdrawls without some creative outlet!
Anyone have any word on knitting circles at cafes or anything to that end in this great sprawling city? Are there any chain craft stores here that would be similar to what I'd be used to in North America?
