good to see some interest... any ideas for location or activities?

Hmmm, I've not been around Perth much, so it's best that you gals name the location. Hahaha.
It's summer time now so preferably indoors or under shade would be better for the skin.

Activities... hmmm.... knitting? Crochet? Picnic?

Hello everyone,
I'm new (well, quite new) to Perth and even newer to knitting.
Hope to make some friends that share the same interest as me here.

So far, I've only been to Spotlight and Crossways to get my yarn.
Do share if you guys know of any other good yarn stores!  Grin


Inoriz, come to Stitch'n'Bitch! Monday nights at Exomod cafe in Mt Lawley. It's on Beaufort St between Hungry Jacks and the Flying Scotsman. We're very friendly, promise. We range from 'Hey - you guys could teach me to knit!' upwards in skill level. You can check out our poorly updated blog ta http://craftyaction.blogspot.com. I think the contact email is out of date though, so if you pm me your email address I can get you added to the e-mail reminder list, if you'd like.

Crossways is the best, imo. There's the Subiaco store and the Fremantle one, and they do have slightly different stock I think. Calico&Ivy is in Mosman Park and is very beautiful and glamourous and expensive and the staff can be rude. Mind, the last couple of times I've been in they've been much, much nicer, so I'm wondering if they finally twigged to their poor-service reputation. It's worth going for a bit of a yarn-perve.

I haven't been to the Bilby Yarns store, only their booth at the Royal Show and it's sparked a fiery, fiery passion. They're sort of the store front for a small collective of people that breed coloured sheep. The sheepies are shorn and their wool divided into colour batches, then some of it is handspun by local spinners and some is sent east for machine spinning. Some of the machine-spun stuff is also overdyed. They also have finished products and needles and spinning gear and dyes too, and they are just the NICEST people. My boy, who has never shown any interest in my knitting, bought $100 worth of handspun so I can knit him a jumper because he liked the booth's friendliness/ knowledge/ attitude to yarn. Oh, and their prices aren't monstrous either. The handspun works out to $6 per 50g! They're somewhere south of the river - Booragoon, or Willeton. They have a website too.

Lupin & Inoriz, the www.craftyaction.blogspot.com email address is mine cos I used to be in charge of the S'n'B mailing list. It's not out of date so if you're keen to come to Mt Lawley S'n'B, drop me a line!!

One day may be changed to the new co-ordinator's but for now, I'm unwilling to let go. Haha. Actually, I just forgot to change it. Sorry for any confusion.

helloo fellow perthians =)

i recently found the most amazing, inspiring shop - its called TreeTops, and it's a home run business in Floreat. website is www.treetopscolours.com.au

they sell high quality, average priced wool roving/tops in the most AMAZING colours, hand dyed 'colour harmonies' and silk tops as well (for felting or spinning, or anything else that takes your fancy).

i highly recommend anyone to go there, especially if you love beautiful colours or your interested in learning to felt =)

Am I going crazy or has Spotlight in Freo shut down?
And Lincraft in Cannington is gone now.

i know thats so crapola! lincraft is no longer in cannington!

..but there is a store, really really close by, called umm i cant remember couture fabrics or something.. they have nice (and a tad expensive) fabrics.

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

Hi everyone.
I am a Perthie. (Dianella in the northern Suburbs well known for the cheap petrol.)
For fabrics I go to Textile traders but sometimes it can be expensive, there is also a fabrics and beads store in the Malaga Markets.
I was also wondering if there any free or cheap craft workshops around.
PM me with the answer and/or details.
