I am currently living in Leeds.

Most of my shopping is at the markets and craftwise. But I also get a lot 2nd hand or through charity shops.

In fact, in the Merrion Market is a guy who sells fabric for a pound a metre, end of roll stuff all good quality. Unfortunately he says he has lost so much custom in the past year he is closing down his shop and only doing weekly markets. If you pop in to his shop you could get even more for your money than usual, as he is trying to shift as much stock as possible to clear the space.

Although now living in Kent, I'm Yorkshire born and proud of it!
We still visit family in Yorkshire and Embsay Craft (now called Samuel Taylor) Nr Skipton is well worth a visit.

I'm another displaced Yorkshire lass. I'm originally from Bingley, West Yorkshire, but I live in Brighton these days.

I'm originally from Wombwell nr Barnsley, but I moved up to Edinburgh with my partner and son 4 years ago.

Barnsley market, on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Go. Three great haberdashery stalls (especially the upstairs indoor market stall), 2 yarn stalls (although it's mostly acrylic), dressmaking and upholstery fabric stalls with real bargins, scrapbooking stall, cheap tool and hardware stalls, cheap cooking pots for dyeing, cheap jewellery to take apart and remake, as well as a big Primark and TK Max for bargins to remake into cool stuff.

Then you go to Bradford and Halifax and you've got your Bombay Stores for every type of fabric as well as everything Indian you could ever want, Denholme Velvets factory shop for ultra cheap velvet pieces (especially good for corset makers.. 1 for 1mtr ish of best quality velvet!) and Texere for all yarn freaks (and they do mail order over the web).

I'll go through my links and find all the shops I know of in Sheffield, Leeds and Manchester too. I spent over 11 years back home crafting of various sorts. Any links or places to visit you can share?

I'm a Leeds girl - although I live in Otley now it's still a leeds postcode!

I buy a lot of my stuff on-line as my 3 year old doesn't like being dragged around craft shops - well she does actually but she trys to open everything and use it which is a bit embarassing at times!

prettycraftythings...a new monthly craft bazaar for the north of england...vendor applications now open...please see http://www.prettycraftythings.co.uk for more details

Im in Leeds, get my stuff from samuel taylor's and the market. By god I love the market. Any thrifty leeds people should get themselves down to the "pound stall" as I call it, in the outside market,where you can get seconds from topshop and other places for, usually, a pound a piece. Don't be put off by the scary ladies.
I also second texere in bradford. It's wool heaven, and definately worth the trip, though they do deliver very speedily via the internet.

Is the Merrion Market still open?  Why did nobody tell me?  Has it moved?  I used to go a few years back, the book and music stalls were really good.

W.Y.G. - What You've Got, as in USE IT, BABY!  In craft, in life, in everything - if you're handed lemons, make port'n'lemon!  (But mine's a gin and rosehip syrup, thanks).
