Where do all the high quality embroidery shops go?

Maybe this is a bit off-topic, but I have to tell it anyway.

I just found out that one of my favourite embroidery/knitting etc shops in the Netherlands is closing! This means I can no longer buy my silk and linen in De Vlijt in Utrecht anymore... And my favourite (and as far as I know, the only one) Dutch quality embroidery webshop is also closing. What is wrong with Dutch people? Why does it seem that the Dutch don't want to work with quality yarns?? Do I really have to buy my embroidery floss from webshops in Canada, the US, UK or Germany? That's ridiculous!

Anyway, if anyone knows some high quality embroidery shops in the Netherlands, please tell me!

Today I went to see De Vlijt to find out more. One of the owners is retiring and the other wants a career change. There was a buyer for the shop, but the building was too expensive. They told me there is still a big market for this kind of shops. I'm happy about that!! I asked them if they knew more shops in the Netherlands and they recommended this one:

Some useful information: De Vlijt closes may 31th, and all the products are 25% off.

[…]Hanna, I removed your photos from the post, I’m so sorry about that. After I had posted them I wondered whether or not I should have asked your permission. Thanks for being so understanding about it.[…]
