Where's Wooly - Day 8 / Last Day


Wooly's  Chinese New Year celebrations are coming to an end.... Today, Day 7, Wooly enjoyed a great day with friends at Hand to Hand Crafts, 1 Wolfe Street  ( corner of Hunter Street), Newcastle

 Part of the appeal of the store is its extensive range of Jo Sharp, Patons and Sublime English wool, as well as a variety of embroidery threads, but there's no doubt that (trainee) Hely and his co-workers, such as Angie Cox and Mandy Moore, enhance a visit.

Good luck, Novocastrians - your last chance to find Wooly.
