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.

Hoorn:
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!)

Alkmaar:
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?

I think you best start a separate topic for that, Copenhagen is Denmark....

Amsterdam has got many great craft and thrift shops, which are unfortunately spread out over the whole city.  Sad  To visit them all would cost days!

But for cross-stitching I know at least two good shops.

De Afstap, located behind the dam square, http://www.afstap.nl/
Jan de kleinvakman, http://www.jandegrotekleinvakman.nl/ on the Albert Cuyp street market. Here you can also find several good fabric shops and a few dollarstore kind of shops.
