the new jo anns is nice, but the place where you can pick out patterns and sit down isnt any bigger. i was dissappointed. the place is so crowded sometimes. hooray for their fabric selection, though!!!

Haven't heard anything about a new bead store yet, but a new knitting store opened up in pike creek (I think).  Too far for me to trek - it sounds like a real pain in the ass to get to from N. wilmington.

New bead store in Newark - Sparkles Bead Shop and Gallery. It's just off Kirkwood Highway down closer to the University end, in a little plaza behind Perkins Family Restaurant (I don't remember the name of the plaza). 

And a little further north, there's the quilt shop (Quilter's Hive), and then further north on the left is A.C. Moore. Plus I know there are at least two sewing machine stores on Kirkwood Highway itself.

There's lots of fun things to do around this area. :-)

Hey everyone, Lewes girl here Smiley

There's a yarn store in Rehoboth on the Avenue called Knitty Gritty, just a little before the library. It's on your right if you're heading towards the beach. I've only been there once myself, just to pick up some DPNs, but from what I saw it was quite nice!

Hey guys! Another fellow Delawarean here! (Although I'm at college in Philly most of the time).

I cannot wait to go to this Sparkle Beads store...is there anyplace online or somewhere I can get info? I <3 beading and jewelry so much but I'm getting tired of the stuff at ACmoore (I work there and get all the coupons I want so there's not need for me to hoard).

Hey guys! Another fellow Delawarean here! (Although I'm at college in Philly most of the time).

Hey, I went to AC Moore looking for the Pure Allure bead stuff that's on sale and couldn't find it ANYWHERE. I left with two bead books instead. If I can't make it, I'll read about it.  Roll Eyes

About Sparkles Beads, as of this time, I can't find ANY info online. I can tell you that the hours are a little wonky - she's only open till 5 during the weekdays, and till 8 on Thursdays. I don't remember if she does weekends or not.

As for her prices...well, I'm a big fan of gemstones, and I like buying by the strand. Most of the strands I've bought from other places online have been 14 - 16 inches, and hers tend to run only about 8 - 12 inches...but she charges the same for them. I also bought a spool of plain old 20-gauge wire from AC Moore for 2.99 and she wanted 3.75 for the same thing. Sterling silver beads and findings run about 70 cents/gram. I have no idea if that's good or not.

I lean to the cheap, especially since I'm just learning, and I guess I wasn't too impressed with her prices. I'll go back, though. I can't stay away from a bead store.

On the fliipside, she does have a lot of pretty stones, and there are tons of project ideas and finished pieces just hanging around the store. She has oodles of findings and stringing supplies, and if you're looking for Swarovski crystal, she's loaded with it. She also has a great little project area set up where you can sit down and go through a bunch of bead books and magazines that she's provided. I hope she offers classes at some point, since she seems to be very knowledgable (I keep referring to the owner as "she" since I don't know her name!) and I can't always make it to the ezbeads.com store in Chadds Ford.

Ok, have to do some work now.

I used to live in Newark, I livein Dallas TX now but I go home 2 times a year. It's good to know where the LYS & other craft places are. I remember back in the day when Newark was filled with little bead shops and Dannemans was the best fabric store outside of Phily.( it was located across from Mc Donalds at the top of Main St. I think ther is a TOYOTA  dealer there now.)There used to be a bunch of groovy places on Phila Pike but alas and alack, time has pushed them to the dust bin of history. Go to the bead shop even if the prices are a lillte higher than the big box stores like AC Moore. If the shop survives, (and I used to work at the State Theater so I remember rents being astronomical even then) you'll be able to get great variety and perhaps even get classes that can  draw beaders & artists that the big box places would never get.

I so miss Newark. really.

When I was in high school, my mom used to take me Dannemans on Main St./kirkwood as a special treat because they had such a "huge" selection.  Ah, memories.
