Hi e_bar_goum

I have a hard time finding 2 ply of anything in Perth!  What I usually do is raid the op shops close to my home and find those knitting machine yarn cones and they are quite thin.  I have found many, some pure wool, some acrylic and some just plain who know's what.

Hi.  I'm from Joondalup.  I can't seem to find any other crafters around my area, and I'm always the youngest at my local op shops (and the one who always buys the most...).  I'm a hoarder, and I love op shopping.  Mind you I'm pretty strapped for cash at the moment so I've been resisting my urges to go and search for more goodies.

I'm also from the Northern suburbs, and used to spend a lot of time in Joondalup - I worked at the Spotlight there.  I don't get there that much now. 

The shop run by Indians is called Homecraft Textiles, and they have a branch in Mirrabooka.  I live near there and it took two years for me to find it!! Now they know me so well, my shy kids talk to them!  They have the best range of all the fiddly bits.  I needed jeans buttons.  Spotlight had one design from Birch, Homecraft textiles had 10 different designs. And don't get me started on their coloured elastics!   I suspect that some stuff is manufacturing overruns.  They certainly have lots of patches from major sporting events in the past.  Every March they have everything in the shop for half price and they open on Sundays.  (I can hear everyone now - couldn't you have told us this two weeks ago?  Sorry)

 Spotlight Osborne Park is being rebuilt down the road next to the Nookenburra Tavern.  They knocked down my family's favourite pub/restaurant to make the space.  I can never forgive them for that.  Hopefully Perth's worst customer service got left behind at the old shop.
