Ive been trying to find groups/people/shops/anything in Germany or surrounding countries. Theres no country-specific board in craftster, so its a bit difficult. Id really like to meet with people/form a group/whatever as theres not much going on...
Im based in Hamburg, but....have craft, will travel.

I'm in Germany!!  Lutherstadt Wittenberg, to be exact.  It's in the former East, so there isn't much going on.  Lots of little (and expensive!) craft shops, not good for someone on a limited budget (me!), but I do what I can.

Hah! I used to live in Halle/Saale! Witttenberg is cute - been there are couple of times for meetings - and of course it has a very famous church door.

I havent found ANY decent places to get stash in Germany. Nothing seems to be really set up for needleworkers (as its FAR too old fashioned) and so everything I get sent in from overseas (England, Oz or US). *Sigh* sometimes I miss home....

Whoa, that is just too wacky!  This must be the week of weird connections through Craftster, because I discovered someone this week who went to my college (about 10 years before I did, but still!)

Anyway, do you have any recommendations about websites to order from?  And where are you from originally?

Im Ozzie, but been here for 5 years in various cities.
As to where I order stuff from, well...usually I call my mum and get her to ship stuff over. Otherwise Ive ordered speciality goldwork threads from Golden Threads in England, or bought up when Ive been there (have you SEEN the prices to England with Ryan Air? I couldve bought a ticket Berlin-London for 50cents!!! Its then actually worthwhile just to go there and stock up on stash!)
As to knitting yarns, well that craft is actually "in", so you can get quite a bit. Its just poor old and stuffy traditional-type needleworkers like me that luck out.
Where are you from Hetobeto?

I am from Ohio, in the States, originally, but I am here in Germany for the next year or so on an internship.  Let me say that I sooooooooo miss the massive craft department stores that are so abundant back home!

But thanks for the tips, and now I won't hesitate to order something I find online 'in case I can find it here' because now I know that I can't find anything here!  lol

How did you end up here from Down Under, wherethewild?

Came to do some post-graduate study, met a guy, got married, stayed! Germany is still unlikely to be permanent, but I cant see myself settling down in Oz either.  Undecided Sometimes its hard to be an ex-pat!
