Paris

This is by no means an exhaustive list. I recommend that you call these stores to check opening hours and to see that they still exist before you make your trip. Stores that I’ve visited are in bold.

Yarn

la droguerie

9 et 11 rue du Jour 75001 PARIS Tél: 01 45 08 93 27 Fax: 01 42 36 30 80

This is both a fantastic and fascinating shop but the service can be a bit hit or miss if your French is poor. They sell beads and wonderful trimmings as well as yarn but there are rules as to how you purchase things. If you’re buying yarn – they sell many wonderful types including cashmere in many colours – you have to work out how much yarn in grams you require. Then you take it to a cubical at the front of the shop where the manager and cash register sit. I recommend that you choose your yarn first because the skeins are for display only. Your yarn will be brought up from some backroom somewhere and that takes time.

After choosing your yarn have a look at the gorgeous trims, buttons and beads. Around the store will be tons of fabulous ideas for using their wares. Each section has a different counter and you must queue up at each in turn for your goods to be bagged up and taken to the cash register cubical. Once you’ve chosen everything and waited, and this takes a long time, you pay for everything together at the cash register. I recommend that you visit this shop with a good knowledge of French or a friend who has good French and a lot of patience. Believe me, you’ll need it!

Bon Marche sell many different kinds of yarn. I’ve even seen Colinette in there although it’s more expensive than in the UK. Each brand has its own counter and you choose the yarns you want and then pay for them all together at a separate cashpoint. You then take your bill and go back to the little counters to pick up your yarn. They also now have their own La Droguerie section where you queue by the display counter and wait eons to be served…

This is a very nice Anny Blatt shop in an interesting neighbourhood. Nearby is the Picasso Museum which has the largeset collection of his paintings in the world. The owner of this shop was really nice when I went there in person but she was a little strange when I tried to order something from her website. I’d emailed her to say how much I’d enjoyed visiting her shop and did any of the Anny Blatt magazines come in English. She wrote back and said that some had just come in. However when I replied and said that I’d like to buy one she wouldn’t sell it to me. Said that they were available in the UK, although I’ve not been able to find them. This was all very strange considering that she says she’ll ship worldwide on the website but you may have a different experience when you visit.
