There are indeed a lot of crafty types in Gainesville, but to my knowledge, there still isn't a formalized group that meets. I keep thinking about trying to organize one, but just haven't carved out the time amidst the other things I do.

The good news is that we are having an indie craft show here in Gainesville this fall! GLAM Indie Craft Show will take place Sunday, Dec. 5 from 1-5pm at the Thelma Boltin Center. Even if you aren't sure you're ready to sell your creations at a show, it's a blast to just come and hang out with other crafty types. All the crafters last year raved about how great it was to meet other cool crafters. Plus we're having a DJ and yummy food for sale, so it's a great way to spend an afternoon.

If you're interested in being a vendor, applications are being accepted through the month of September via http://glamcraftshow.com/apply. Apply early, since spaces are limited.

I thought Gainesville was going to be a bust as far as supplies go, but after looking in the back of one of my bead magazines I noticed that there are THREE bead places in Gainesville! -- Gifts of Avalon, The Sun Center Bead Emporium and an adorable store by the name of Bead All About It

Have any of you had any experience with these bead stores? Are they all by the strand, or individual bead sellers? And what are the prices and staff like? I used to work at a place with a rather rude owner (that's why I quit) who pushed people to spend more money and made customers uncomfortable, so I'm hoping that these places are awesome!

Sadly, the Sun Center Bead Emporium has since gone out of business. I really miss that place. Cindy had all sorts of unique stuff. *sniff*

The other two stores are still open, and are a stone's throw from each other near the intersection of NW 43rd Street and NW 23rd Blvd. Both sell hanks and individual beads and have an extensive selection. The staff have never been rude to me.

I've been to Hanks and they do indeed have nice yarn and a helpful staff. Highly recommend for any of you knitters or crocheters in the Gainesville area!

I'm obviously chiming in late, but if you ever come back to Gainesville then don't miss these local favorites.

Loop de Loop (http://www.loopdeloopshop.com) is a funky-junky resale shop at 205 NE 16th Ave. The proprietess (Cat) always has the place chock full of great retro stuff as well as items from local crafters (including herself).

Also, don't miss Satchel's (http://www.satchelspizza.com/) and Lightnin' Salvage (http://www.lightninsalvage.com/) at 1800 NE 23rd Avenue. Satchel's has great pizza and salads, and Lightnin' Salvage has live music and all sorts of weird stuff for sale, as well as a cool junk museum.

And my favorite bar, hands down, is The Top. Not only do they pour good drinks, they also have an extensive menu that caters to meat lovers and vegetarians alike. (I looove the buffalo tempeh.) The atmosphere is very thrift-store chic and they always have interesting odds and ends on view in the ladies room.

I just found this thread. Thanks for suggesting my Atomic Eggbeater clock--I'm flattered!

(And yes, my username here is "sassafras," not "sassycrafter." My preferred moniker was already taken.)

Thanks!  I was also wondering if you had to clip through the chicken wire after it was imbedded in foam (eyes openings) or did you cut it before you did the foam?

Ooh, it's been awhile... let me rack my memory bank. I think I left the chicken wire in place in the eye sockets until I was ready to mount the drywall sanding screens in place, i.e., after all the fur was glued in place. Then I snipped the chicken wire from the eye sockets and trimmed the screens to fit snugly into the sockets (better to cut a bit large and then trim down if necessary). I secured the screens with a bit of E6000 adhesive.
