  • Your help needed re: craft shops!

    I need to draw on the wealth of knowledge and experience from every Forum member here!

    My publishers have asked me to forward them details of any outlets that may be interested in stocking my book when it's released.

    So... do any of you know of any art/craft stores that stock books and guides on various crafts? If you know of any (or if you run one yourself!), please post any contact details here or PM them to me for my list.

    Thanks in advance,

    Si.

    not 100% sure, but Webberleys may stock the kind of book you are writing. They are an independent bookshop in Hanley but also stock crafty items.

          Yandles in Somerset and Malletts in Truro. Both stock some craft books, may be worth investigating

                        Keep 'em coming... I've realised that I can just send the publishers the link to this thread as well as all the research that I've done into possible retailers!
