  1. jazakillah khayr! been in jeddah for a couple of years now and have been looking for affordable ways to keep myself busy, i knew about the shops in macarona though i never purchased any craft stuff but may visit soon for laces. i saw a few shops in malls but they all looked very costly 🙁 so i stayed away. your post is very helpful, cant wait to bribe dearest husband somehow and visit some of these places 😀 not very clued up on how to follow blogs but will sign up for the newsletter in sha Allah, cant wait to explore yours!

    1. Hello! Jarir Bookstore or Tihama Bookstore would be my go to. You can try Mirza Library on Falasteen street (next to Jarir) too.

  2. this is really informative… jazakillah… may i know where to get the empty spray bottle for refilling. white board paints , and some wodden blocks for crafting and carpenting… (ahem actually i am not a carpenter but i really love to make furnitures by myself ) pls help me…
    can i get any wooden peices from jarir? …. example for foto printing and all????

    1. Umm… that’s so many queries… ? I recently saw white board and blackboard paint at Homeworks at Nas Town Madinah road, next door to Danube.

      Jarir has a lot of hobby crafts… you can call them and ask. They have an excellent customer care…

      If you want plywood… I am not sure what you mean by wood… that will be hardware shops. Again Homeworks, SACO or IKEA even… there is a whole area in Kilo 2 area (that’s near balad area) that has hardware and wood…

  3. What is the address for the Al- Motthallath location. I’ve been looking for it everywhere and I can’t find it. Thanks!

    1. Mothalat is opposite Jarir on Falasteen Street. Not exactly opposite but approximately in that line. It is a big shop hard to miss.

    1. Hi Ghana, most yarn shops have t-shirt yarn these days but chunky isn’t that common. I used to find it at Maktaba Ghumri on Falasteen street but haven’t checked recently. Please join Jeddah Crafters Club on Facebook . I’m sure someone there will be able to guide you.

  4. I’m moving to Jeddah in August
    Where can I buy genuine leather hides/skin as well as leather off cuts

    1. Hey Joanne,

      I think we’ll have to ask around for genuine leather but I am sure it is available here. There are some shops in old Jeddah where they make leather stuff, I guess they’d be able to guide. Have you joined the Jeddah Crafter’s Club on Facebook? Someone may be able to guide you better in there.

  5. Ana Special Mall, no yarn shops found only birthday party materials in one of the shops.
    At Hindawiyyah the prices were wholesale for yarns and sewing materials, but we were looking for chunky or Bulky yarn and were unsuccessful as only T-shirt yarns were available in this market.
    Do you know were chunky yarns or bulky yarn for making a throw blanket can be found in Jeddah?

    1. Chandni, Did you try the Arts n Crafts shop in Salam Mall? A reader mentioned in our crafts group that she found some there.
