    I got that one yesterday free with Nursery World! Not had a proper chance to look at it yet though...

    TBH I tend to buy stuff as I spot it in Woolies or ELC when it's on sale. I dont' buy enough to warrant the postage costs otherwise.

    Agree with Sarah though most of the time I do our local shops and the pound shop have some fantastic craft things - you just have to keep checking each week for the best bargains

    I do like Baker Ross though

    I received that catalogue from Charley's school recently and have placed my order of £97 (hubby was gobsmacked)

    It had some really good things and just ordered everything I wanted, oops

    I'll let you know what it's like when it arrives.

    Think it's similar to baker ross as I've used them before

    As well as places like Woolies.....Wilkinsons is a good place to go

    We also have a few shops around this area called 'The Works'....don't know if you got any near you...........they are really good for cheap art & craft stuff!

    They also have a website - http://www.theworks.co.uk/index.php

    After posting earlier to say I'd ordered from yellow moon about half hour later my order arrived.

    I only ordered on Monday so how quick was that.

    Stuff looks great so will definately order from them again

    hi, Baker Ross is great but I usually place a huge order so try to limit myself once every 6 months! The Range is a fantastic place too at great prices and I have a local shop called Sew Simple that is an agent for Docrafts. If I take my daughter with me we end up spending a fortune, so I try to leave her at home!!!

    Baker ross and Yellow moon are run by the same company. At the Family Centre where I am working at the moment we order from Baker Ross as buying bulk works out cheaper. Yellow moon is their catalogue for parents as it sells smaller quantities and can also be set up to donate a percentage to charity - so we give those out to the parents to buy from.

    Both are great catalogues and the children all love the things that come from there. I can't let my DD1 help me choose otherwise I would need another mortgage as she loves everything in it.

    I have got really good stuff from Tesco recently and I always find their paper and card really cheap.

    We are off to a retail park where Hobby ctraft is today and my daughter will spend a fortune. It is sooo expensive but I do love the stuff in there
