Arts & crafts & yarn shops in the Vaucluse/Bouche

theoreticalbunny writes in Home & Garden

Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone can recommend any art supply and/or craft stores and yarn stores in the Vaucluse or Bouches-du-Rhône areas, or the southern Drôme. I already know about Michel in Aix, which is fabulous - is there a store like that in Avignon? Also would like to know about your favorite yarn shops for when my knitting-crazy mother comes to visit us. I have a list of great fabric stores already but haven't had much luck finding a yarn store worth a detour. Thank you in advance!

I've got good wool from phildar in avignon before - they have excellent sales also so good time to go - big chain so you can find them on the net. It's on rue fourbisseurs and is almost next door to a bigger yarn shop (which is rather pricey).

There is an Anny Blatt store on the rue de Rome near the corner of rue Moustier in Marseille which is good and La Droguerie in the rue Vacon is great for threads and other accessories.

Thank you for your replies! I do already know about Tissus Grégoire - what a wonderful place it is too. Would be great to have a yarn equivalent!

I'll check out the stores in Avignon and Marseille.
