These are some of my favourite Yorkshire craft suppliers.
Yarns and fibre
The Skep, Farsley
Purl & Jane, Skipton
Texere, Bradford – gone bust, but partially replaced by Airedale Yarns which is really an internet supplier, although the Keighley shop is open to callers on the first 7 days of every month.
Baa Ram Ewe, Chapel Allerton (Harrogate and Headingley shops now closed)
Coldspring Mill, Cullingworth
Adelaide Walker, now moved to Addingham
NB. Arcadia Textiles in Elland no longer sells yarns.
The Shuttle, Shipley (no website, but the shop is on Otley Road, just opposite the Dockfield Road turning)
The Fent Shop, Skipton
Fine Fabrics, Harrogate
The Remnant House, Harrogate
in Farsley, close to Bonds
Clas Ohlson, but the Leeds shop has now closed
British Hardwoods, Cross Hills
James Latham, Tingley
(Boddy’s of Boroughbridge has, alas, gone bust.)
