I tried to put all of this information onto the website and found that it was getting messy and I was having problems putting all the information I wanted onto one page. I then had a lightbulb moment, if I put the locations on a blog, I can link to them all and keep them individually updated!
One of the questions I get more than any other (other than, ‘A stitch ‘n’ what?!’) is ‘Where can I buy craft supplies in Lausanne?’. I’m hoping to answer that question on the blog. Each location, website etc will have it’s own post, enabling the addition of maps, pictures and reviews. This also allows for easy updates!

Just up the from Lausanne Gare is Pingouin. Both times I’ve been there they’ve been exceptionally friendly. They stock a fair supply of yarn, Aida cloth by the meter and have a large supply of DMC threads organised by number (unlike the little mess in Manor)
Hidden behind Globus is a gorgeous shop choc full of supplies. They have some lovely yarns, stock some patten books in english (I picked up the Summer Rowan Kids pattern book just last week), embroidery patterns, cross stitch, tapestry and have baby bibs, tea towels etc all ready for your embroidery. It will be a definite challenge to visit and not to leave with a new project (or three)!
