Hmm.. I think I looked the other day for a ND board but didn't find one... lo and behold.. today there is!  Yay... now just to find others from this desolate state.

You're not alone! I'm super-new here and haven't posted yet, but I'm a Nodak gal, born and raised. Yay for us, right?

I know there are crafty people in this state, because my mom's done crafts since I've been little. I grew up around glue guns, crepe, ribbon, and yarn and sewing... and I still steal all my mom's supplies for my projects... the sewing machine has been claimed in my name, even.

I was looking for crafts stuff in the area a few days ago, and there really is NOT much. My mom, my aunts and I used to go to Fort Abercrombie for their huge craft fair thing every summer. If you're willing to take the long journey and walk around in the unbearable sun, it's a huge place with lots of interesting stuff!

Christina, we should go to the craft fair at Alerus. It could be interesting and we could possibly learn a bit. Sound cool? Still need to give you back your Van Gogh print fleece. I can clean in if it smells funny, too.

Well this is about the coldest you can get, unless you move to Grand Forks.. usually colder there than Fargo.  heh.  It's usually warmer in Alaska in the winter.. how sad huh?  So your life probably won't get anymore colder.  That's a good thought... right?  Ha.

I lived in Fargo for a few years and went to NDSU for awhile.  I'm from Park Rapids, Minnesota... an hour and half east.  Unfortunatly, "Minnesota" usually ends about 100 miles out of the twin cities and existence is denied beyond that.  I head out to Fargo monthly, at the least, and do most of my crafty shopping out there.

I'm in Fargo now.  How I got here I don't recall, something about a movie and being entraced with the whole "snow" idea.  I was born and raised in Guam (not Guam, ND it doesnt exist, Guam the country) sorry, I get that a lot here.  So I am like this tropical island girl....in Fargo....and I make 8 in ND!!

I know there are more crafters out there, we need to bring them here!
Has anyone been to the new Boucle Idea Studio on Broadway in Fargo?  Its FABULOUS! We have 2 yarn stores now!  Yarn Renaissance on University South, and in downtown broadway!  If there are more, I haven't found them...yet. :-)

Happy hookin' all!
