Is the thrift store really right next to price chopper?

I'm at WPI with QueenofSporks, but I'm a freshman which equals lack of car and knowledge about places to feed my craftyness.

There's also a few girls on my floor that I'm trying to get to join craftster, one is addicted, yet hasn't joined. they're making anime boston costumes for april. joann's cost $17 round trip just to go. stupid cabs

Well, I live in Southbridge and this has nothing to do with crafts, but I was thinking about going to Clark... is it a good school?  is it hard to get into?  how are the people?

I live in Boston but am from Central Mass. C.C. Lowell is an art store at 258 Park Ave.

I vaguely remember it being a little more expensive, but it seems closer and could even out in terms of travel costs.

It's a fairly competitive school, admission wise. It's not too bad though. Depending on your major though, the programs may not be what you're looking for (there's a MUCH stronger focus on the arts, the science department's fairly small and doesn't offer many options).  It's not the popped collar crowd by any means, kids are pretty unique and very much a mixed bag.

If you want, you can PM me or contact me on AIM (yayforerni) so we don't threadjack this.


Ragdoll- Salvation Army is HUGE, it is right next to the Price Chopper on Cambridge, which at least from Clark isn't bad at all. You could always catch the consortium bus and walk from here.

haha it's so funny because I was out looking for the Salvation Army on Saturday and couldn't find it...I never knew it was next to Price Chopper!  Sheesh...I have no sense of direction!

Clarkie craftster here!

I don't really have craft stores to add b/c I think all the ones I know of have already been covered.  On nice days though you can walk to CC Lowell, I have a few art major friends who did this.  You can probably even walk there from WPI if you don't want to spend the cab money.

I knit quite a bit, so I'd be happy to help those who want to learn. 

The craft studio isn't much really.  Its mostly used by groups for making the big posters they hang up in the UC.

I love the Sheep Shack in Holden.  There is a knitting help night every week but I'm not sure which night.  I don't know much about the buses from Worcester but I know they do go to Holden, however I would recommend having a friend drive you because if you don't know the town you won't really know where to get off.  It's a small shop with a nice variety of yarns and the owner is one of those women who remembers what you're working on and what yarn you bought and has some sort of instant-gauge-o-meter in her head if you don't want to use the yarn suggested by the pattern.  As for other crafts, AC Moore has WAY more pattern books and a much better supply of crochet hooks, knitting needles, and cross-stitch supplies than Michael's.  However Michael's seems to have better prices in general and more in the way of scrapbook stuff.

There is a bead shop in Tatnuck Square- called Tatnuck Beads- and it is on Pleasant Street. It'd be a longish walk from both WPI and Clark (maybe 3 miles?), but it's worth a visit!

And, fellow Worcesterites (or temporary transplants, spoken as a WPI grad who sort of never left)...the Craftster Charity Blitz has Greater Worcester Habitat for Humanity as its charity for April. They are having an auction in May and are looking for donated items. Check it out at: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=141234.0 or http://www.thinkscience.org/CraftsterPics/habitatauction.html

I'll be hitting the thrift stores this weekend in the hopes of finding something decent to re-vamp into something excellent!  Grin

Don't forget about HBML (happy birthday mike leslie) on pleasant street.  Yeah, kind of a junk shop, but if you like to re craft things, unusual things thats a good place.  and in september 17th  theres stART on the street! ( i used to live in worcester and try hard to find time to craft)  my town actually has a needlework/knitting/crochetting group that meets at the library every week...check out some of the local libraries...
