I moved to the Netherlands recently and I am having trouble finding craft supplies, specifically yarn/string. I was only able to find one place where they had some string but I only saw one sort of it. So where is the best place to get yarn/string and other craft supplies?  Huh

Welkom in Nederland ;-)

For craft supplies it depends on the town/city where you live. For yarn you can look for "wolwinkels". There's a list of yarn shops here: http://www.cvanlangeveld.nl/breien_winkels.html
For craft supplies you can search for a "kleinvakwinkel" or "kleinvakspeciaalzaak" in your town.

I live in Leiden and we have 2 wool shops and 2 supply shops. They are small but you can find quite some usefull things. If you live near Leiden and want to do some yarn/supply shopping together, just PM me!

There's a good link Idlers. I didn't even know that one.
Hello Kim and welcome to Holland. Hope you enjoy it here. In which area are you? Perhaps we can search for more specific info for you.
