So.... anyone from Cyprus who knows where the craft shops are please post here as I don't know many places to get stuff from!

So far for your information......

Paphos Town.... look in the 69 and 68 cent shops, two on Russian Road (Mr Chicken road/ Agapinoros) and the one up the hill from the large Papantoniou supermarket up towards Mesogi. Also, Galerie of Cards near the Sodap triangle has card-making pieces. Super Home Centre on the way to Geroskipou has seasonal crafty bits (not very many and not that often though!). Angies Fabric Shop (up from the Law Courts and behind does fabrics from one pound per metre). The Yellow Store (same direction) also has a good variety of ribbons and some stick on pieces (some of these are expensive) but they do those cute little clothes pegs for 20 cents each if you are looking for a little something.

Chloraka- the card/book shop next to the PAWS shop has a good variety of stickers, papers and other bits.

Other places will be added as I find them/ as other people add to the list. I'm hopeful but being realistic, I may be the only Cyprus based member.....

Anyone know how to get supplies over the internet without a credit card?Huh

hi boatbird!! Afraid not based in Paphos but can tell you about fun places to visit in Nicosia if you are ever enclined to come down for the day

For fabric and quilting/knitting supplies there is a lovely place on Kyriakou Matsi Str (past the junior school) called
"crafty ideas"

"zedia Hobbies" just off Kenedy street nr russian cultural center, sells every craft related products from paper, to clay, beads, mosaic.....

"ribbon works" on Kenedy avenue opposite "philippides paperworks", sells ribbons of all types, beads and bits and bobs embellishments

"rainbow" on Makarios avnue sells all types of paints, canvas, fimo clay and arts suplies.

hope that helps as a start
you know re the credit card thing, local banks can issue you with some sort of card that works like a credit card but expires after say 3 days and can be "credited" with the amount you wish to spend.
Not done this myself but cypriot friends of mine have quite easily.

take care

ooh I forgot, there is a Bead shop in Chloraka! In the main part of Chloraka, along from the church heading towards Papantoniou supermarket.

My favourite card shop has just changed hands- Galerie of Cards on Danais Avenue will soon be doing scrap-booking bits from the US and OZ!!!! They already sell card-making bits so this is a great addition.

Yet to rate... Infinity Stitchcraft near to Orphanides supermarket off Tombs of the Kings Road.

Saschat, thanks for the heads up about Nicosia! I wish I'd known you a couple of weeks ago when I was there with my parents!!!!

Good to know Smiley

RAINBOW - there is another one close to the old town (facing the Ledra street entrance go right) - it's much bigger than the one on Makarios Str., they have supplies for almost all crafts

Mavromatis Bookstore - Byzantium Str. (Strovolos) - they have very nice section with supplies for artists, textile paints, canvas, clay etc.

Don't remember the name but there is a great shop on 28th of October (Engomi), next to Papaphilipou Ice Creams - huge wall of all kinds of ribbons/cords/threads + gift boxes, gift wrapping papers, small decorations etc.

If you are looking for fabrics, there are many small shops on a street parallel to Ledra Str., I think it's Phaneromenis Str. (10 different or even more shops with hundreds of different fabrics)

Btw. do you know where I can buy a sewing machine here in Nicosia?

splendid event

Hi there!

It proved very difficult for me to find places for crafting materials as they are all hidden in some way. I agree with the above and I will make some additions for Nicosia and Limassol.

For beads: The beads paradise is Suzukyoto, next to Woolworth-Debenhams- Hermes (Do not remember what is called now). Its a big basement with a huge  choice of beads etc. It is worth a visit. Thousands of beads in very good prices as well.


Seller= craftstore (like rainbow but with more choices for the craftster)=Ayias Filaxeos street, in a small street opposite kouzina, and croquelino.

Loris & Titina= beads, boas, various fabrics, laces in very good prices. next to Stephanis

Giorgys= The street opposite Fisco, next to Damianos fruit market. Great choice of fabrics.

I am really looking for a place in Nicosia or Limassol who sells scrapbooking paper or wrapping paper. In the places I know they sell good paper but in monochromatic colours....Any help......? Maby wallpaper is a good option but is usually very expensive.....
