Finding Art and Craft Supplies in Nagoya

Recently my friends and I have been indulging in arts and crafts. Since the weather was too cold for outdoor activities, we took this opportunity to turn creative. Some of my friends are really talented and so creative ! They conducted workshops to teach us to weave baskets, make our own crystal jewellery etc. Few of us also participated in a Paper Rose Window making workshop. Few more workshops are on the cards but we sometimes find it difficult to buy craft supplies. 

Most of us know of the Tokyu Hands stores at Nagoya station or the Tokyu Hands Annexe store in Sakae or online stores.The problem with ordering online is that most websites are in Japanese. So, I started looking for stores selling craft supplies in Nagoya and came across quite a few. So I thought I should share whatever information I have with others who might be interested. I have been to some of the stores but am yet to check out the others.
