I've been to London and Stratford-on-Avon. I know a lot of Jigidiers live in the UK. There are at least 4 on the forum, maybe more. June is from Cumbria, I believe. It's fun to chat with people from all over.

In the North West, near Manchester. Have you ever visited the UK Gaillou? I've been to New York, but a long time ago :-)

I would like to visit Budapest sometime. Maybe on a river cruise on the Danube. Where in the UK do you live?

Interesting idea Gaillou. I've learnt something - I had no idea where the twin cities were. Now I know. Sounds a bit like Budapest -Buda is on one side of the River Danube in Hungary, and Pest is on the other.

I love the display. We have a number of yarn shops in the Twin Cities area. Every spring they have a yarn hop. You go to each store. There is an entry "fee": some canned goods for the food shelf. Or you can donate cash ahead of time that goes to the food shelves. With the entry "fee" you can get free patterns and the yarn to go with it at a discount.

The same has happened here in the UK too, Rebecca. But, some of the small independent shops have built online businesses and flourished. Black Sheep Wools is a fine example of this. Some have specialised in high end yarns, e.g. small batch artisan dyers, and have gathered a strong following e.g. https://www.countessablaze.com/ Good luck with your search over the pond :)

Sadly, many small needlework shops, just like other businesses, have been unable to compete with massive online companies and have closed. I really miss being able to drop in for a class or advice, much less find special items for unique ideas. Thanks for sharing.
