Well, there's a hobbycraft on the way out towards Sixfields. I'm sure there must be more, but I'm fairly new to the area myself. In Milton Keynes, the outside market at MK1 has plenty of wool and fabric. There is a quilting shop in one of the villages to the west (quick stop to google) Ah, yes, Weedon. But that's about all I know of. Do let me know of any you find.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Ya I frequent hobbycraft and I'm trying to find others!

If you're into fabric there's Mrs Sew & Sew out near Far Cotton (I think). There's also Fabric Emporia on Kettering Road near the Picturedrome and Fabric Warehouse. There's a craft store in Olney but I never seem to be there when it's open. Can't remember what it's called.

I'd love to find a really good bead store.

Ooh, you remind me of somewhere I'd forgotten, there IS a bead shop again to the west of Northampton (where I live) On the A5 from Towcester towards Milton Keynes, just before the village of Potterspury there's a little farm shop and estate (Wakefield?) and there's a bead shop there. Or at least there was. Last time I went the farmer had sold the farm & estate and there were all sorts of upheavals due to happen but no-one was sure exactly what. As far as I recall it was just called the bead shop, but my memory is not that great.

If you fancy a trip to MK there is a craft shop on Stony Stratford high street (HCS Crafts), Threads and Patches in Fenny Stratford (who do some great workshops) and in Woburn Sands there is the knitting hut.

Hope that helps.  I'm from Bletchley, and I know these are the shops that my mum goes too!  Wink

I'm in Kettering, not far from Northampton, and we have a sweet little craft shop here called Bee Inspired. I absolutely love it, and I know crafters who come quite a way to visit the store.
