Visit When You Can, Shop Online When You Cannot UPDATED

Judging from the countries where Blog's computer visitors originate, there are a lot of folks here who don't visit the U.S. shops in person. They rely on mail order. This can be expensive, with duties and postal costs and many shops simply don't want to bother.  Unbroken Thread's owner is in Germany and faces this sort of problem, but she's found a great mail order source in England.  You can read about her experiences here.

Here is the direct link to the Londoun Bead Company's online store, which I had never heard of before.  Judging from Kathy's experience, this is a great source.  I hope some of you find this useful as well.

If you have to mail order your needlepoint supplies and are not in the U.S., what shops have you found to be very useful?  Please comment below or email me at chilly hollow at hotmail dot com and I will post the shop for you here.

UPDATE:  Kathy visited the shop while taking a course from the Royal School.  Here's what she said.
