Hi, I'm Kat and I am one of the girls who runs Blue Monday, so I imagine I can shed some light on the topic.

We are a co-op of local crafters who started out as a crafting group that met on Monday nights in someone's home and sold stuff at the farmer's markets on the east and west side.

We've outgrown that, and now have our own retail space in the BL Horwitz building at 828 Main Street.  We still meet on Monday nights to craft, but people are welcome any time.  You can feel free to bring your own stuff to work on, but we also rent out time on our equipment for an hourly fee.  We also teach classes.  Our current display window lists most of the classes we are currently offering.

There are four or five of us who actually craft for the store, and the rest of it is consignment.  Don't ask me how many consignors we have, I really couldn't say.

We are open Monday Tuesday and Thursday from five to nine and Friday/Saturday from eleven to nine.  All of us have day jobs, so the store is open mostly on evenings.

As far as equipment capabilities, we have an enormous rotary cutting table, three Singer sewing machines, your general array of tools and an industrial sized iron set up at all times.  We also have decent-ish sized workspace for other crafts, and a very comfy couch.  We also keep fresh crafting books and periodicals on-hand and a Project Binder for inspiration.

Some things people do/have done at blue monday include:  Sewing, knitting, crochet, origami, card making, tassel making/embellishment, re-upholstry, latch hooking, collage and painting.  This is by no means the complete list, and all crafters are welcome.

If you need help finding us, or have any questions feel free to call us (we're in the phone book) or contact me, Melanie, or message us on MySpace.
