Does anyone know where I can go and look at wools, knit/crochet patterns and made up samples? Are there any good little shops hiding anywhere.

There is one in Halesowen. I used to get wool from HOF or John Lewis in Solihull.

There used to be a good one on Bearwood High Street called The Wool Shop (ingenious yes ?). I haven't been for a while though so I am not 100% certain whether its still there

It lived in Bearwood until 2009 and I don't remember it being there then, so don't think its about anymore unless its been open since then IYSWIM

I saw a lovely looking wool shop when I was at the Custard Factory in Digbeth. I would have gone in but had to get to the station. fab bead shop there as well.

There used to be a good wool selection at a shop in Kings Heath (near Rainbow chinese restaurant) - I think it's still there.

You could always try pharmacies - some stock wool, bizarrely enough.

Thanks for those suggestions.

jendifa, could you tell me whereabouts in Halesowen the shop is please. (dont know that area very well).

I'll have a look in the Custard factory tomorrow when I'm in town - didnt know they had one there so thanks for that pearlgirl.
and I can head to Bearwood from there too.

I have looked in Kings Heath High St but no shop to be found- only founnd a little sewing supplies in the In-Shops nearby.

I'm not a great knitter/crocheter but looking for some inspiration and like to see things in the flesh.

It's on the main high street. Follow signs for H'owen town centre and you pass a cemetry on the right as you go up a hill. It's on the left there.

The SUe Ryder shop near us has started stocking yarn - it may be a national thing so perhaps try your local branch?
