Just down from the Gallowgate college there is a fabric shop - although I've never been in so can't comment on it

Do you mean Kings Fabrics?? It's a good shop! Although you have to go upstairs to get to the dress fabric & patterns, they have quite a wide selection and also cheap fabric remnants in wicker baskets by the till area, down stairs in the shop is more like upholstery fabrics.
John Lewis is also good but can be kinda expensive, but they do sell other crafty bits nad jewelery making supplies. [Crafty section is at the back end of the ground floor.]
Internacionale [sp?] is also good if you go down stairs to the homes section, quite cheap too.
Service Point [atleast I think it's called that] sells proper art supplies (paint, canvas etc), thats on School Hill, near the Academy shopping centre.
The Colour Box on Holdburn Street is sort of hard ware shop, sells most things, so it can be useful, and the guy in there is quite helpful.
Dorrie Doodle, opposite the theatre and library, can't remember the name of the street sorry!] is good for paper making crafts; stamps, paper, pens, ink etc. Can be expensive though

also look through the rest of the posts to see what other people have said, it's only four pages it won't take too long! Smiley

yeah, ive stayed in and around aberdeen all my life, lived in methlick and went to ellon academy, now ive flown the nest to near king street in aberdeen as im at RGU...studying social sciences, not art, booo, lol Smiley

another place to get craft things is Holborn Crafts, ive not been in but heard its ok, but a little expensive...there is also, apparently a paper mill a bus ride away where you can get some lovely papers for card making/scrapbooking, etc

also supermarkets sometimes have things...lidl, depending on what mood its in, can offer lots of great crafting things...actually had a sewing machine for 40 recently, no i didnt buy it...

Hello aberdeenies,

I'm back in town for about a week and need to pick up some leather cord, preferably in bulk.. like spools of 50 meters or so. 2mm diameter and squarecut for preference.

To be honest 2-3M would be more than adequate ... but I'd like material to play with while I'm away.

Has anyone got any ideas.

I want hands on this in a 'walk in and pick it up manner' as i want to weave a fairly intricate celtic knot style armband/bracelet for my GF before I have to run away again.
