Hey! I live in Colorado Springs. Unfortunately, I have no cool ideas for crafty or thrifty places. What is Barricusa Bazzaar?

It's not a diy store, but it has such amazing cool stuff I can't see anybody not loving it. here's a website that talks a little about it:

I grew up in the Springs, though I'm in Fort Collins for college.  What sort of crafty stores do you mean?  There are two bead stores in Old Colorado City and one up near Bucco di Beppos, if those count.

Hello.  I live out of state and will be visiting CO Springs this Summer.  More crafty places would be appreciated!

Well, I grew up there (Sierra HS woohoo!); and still go back a couple of times a year to visit family.  The new Joann's off of Powers is incredibly HUGE! and fantastic.  They're essentially a "super store"-- a craft store on a super-Wal-Mart scale; and the staff was very helpful when I was there last. 

There are Goodwill's everywhere.  If the one that's off of S. Academy and Astrozon is still there, they some times sell clothes by the pound. 

If you knit or crochet, I came across a nice yarn store.  They're on the pricey end, but have all of the good knitting books in stock and have some of the most beautiful handcrafted knitting needles I've ever seen.  It's Needleworks by Holly Berry at 2409 W. Colorado Ave.  The staff was really nice, if overly enthusiastic! 

And of course, if you're into beading and jewelry, there are TONS of shops in Co. Spings and Manitou.  Ackley's Rocks and Stamps, Alpine Casting Co. (they give free samples of their beads!), Beadtrader/Beazu (all in Co. Springs) and in Manitou: Bead to the Beat, Claim Jumpers Rock Shop.

Another great knitting store is Green Valley Weavers and Knitters on Colorado Ave.  They are small but have great yarn and are very helpful.

Thanks for the suggestions.  Keep them coming.  Do any of the yarn shops around carry dyed roving?  I've recently gotten into spinning and prefer to purchase roving in person than over the internet.

Thanks!

There is a store called Knitters Cove it is south of downtown (can't remember the address) but I am pretty sure they have roving. Green Valley has some too.   What brings you to C-Springs this summer?

I just got back from Co. Springs today and had a fabulous time on vacation.  I was able to go to Green Valley Knitters & Weavers and a wonderful yarn shop in Old Colorado City (wonderful book selection).  I hit up a couple of bead shops but unfortunately was a little disappointed.  At least one of the bead shops was even closed on a Tuesday afternoon.  Sad  But to the bead shops benefit, I was only able to go to a couple  nor did I find the bead shops in Manitou.  (Adam's Mountain cafe was quiet yummy though). 

The air feels so thick and humid back home, compared to the light rocky mountain air.  Smiley

Thanks for all your help!

Hey all-

I live in Colo. Springs, too!  The Goodwill off of Constitution and Powers (it's behind a 7-11, next to the shopping mall with Grocery Warehouse) is awesome.  I always find goodies for collages and altered books.  The ARC off of Austin Bluffs is good, too, but overpriced, imho.  They just built a new Salvation Army, huge, on the corner of Platte and Circle.  Salvation Army always keeps things cheap.

I just went to Joann's for the first time off of Powers....holy cow, there was so much that I was overwhelmed.  All of those gorgeous fabrics, too.  Yum.

Old Colorado City...I'm going to have to check out those stores previous post-ers mentioned.  It's also just awesome to walk around down there to get inspiration.

I would love to have a craft night, but unfortunately, Denver is a bit much for me.  It's the extra hour it takes to get to Denver, then the hour it takes to get home that kills me.  And oy, I hate Denver driving at night.  Scares the be-jiminies out of me.  But I am all for a Colorado Springs craft night.  Or just a friendly get together to meet each other.  It's a little hard to coordinate on this board, tho, cuz I think folks are checking out the projects, swaps, how-to's, more than the location boards.  Any ideas, anyone?

Or it could be just a really small group...you, me and your little bit (the little cutie in your avatar pic, right?).  lol Grin.  Not many Colo. Sprgs folks posted here (although it looks like a few in Denver...I accidentally posted the comment about Denver from another post behind the Colo. Springs one...d'oh!)....hmmm, where to find them in the Springs?  I'm not real hip to going outside of the Springs, either.  Do you have any ideas?  Do you know if any of the smaller craft shops in town host craft nights, or have regulars that would be willing to give it a go?  I'm on the east side of town, off of Powers and N. Carefree, so I've mostly been hitting Michael's and Goodwill, and I'm not familiar with all of the really *cool* craft stores on the west side of town/Old Colo City/Manitou Springs.  I suppose I could do the non-lazy thing, and call around.  I'll do that tomorrow and post here what I find out.  Any craft shops that you all think should definitely be on the list?  I was going to call the Michael's and Hobby Lobby's in town (I know they have classes, just don't know about the informal stuff).  After that, I'm not sure who.

BTW, my name is Kristina.  Nice to meet ya, Gretchen.  And I'm really glad that you wrote back.

Sorry, I have not been around. My husband is on the computer for school alot. then things got really busy around here, but I am still interested in craft night.
 Actually the kid in the picture is me. My wee one is a little boy.
as for good craft stores, there are some great knitting stores but I usually go to the big box craft stores too.  Joanns is pretty off the hook they seem to have everything.

To all you Colorado Springs gals (and guys, if you're out there).  I just wanted to let you know about a brand new craft store on the east side of town.  It's called Quilts and Crafts, run by a mom and daughter team, Omega and Trina.  It's a quilting and scrapbooking supply store on the NW corner of N. Carefree and Powers, next to Diamond Shamrock.  They are having a grand opening on Sept. 1st, 2nd and 3rd, with discounts, and they are also giving away prizes, including a crazy expensive quilting sewing machine (Trina said it's worth over $1000).  You can enter anytime between Sept 1st and 3rd and you don't have to be there to win, they'll call you.  Omega will be teaching quilting classes and Trina will be teaching scrapbooking/altered books/stamping/etc classes.  The store is very well organized, with some scrapbooking and quilting supplies that you apparently can't get anywhere else (like this very pretty stained glass paper that Trina was showing me).  Very cool, so check these ladies out before you head to the big stores, especially for all you east-enders, since it's in the same vicinity as Joann's and Micheal's.  Support your local craft store!

That's where I learned to knit! Love the store and the staff is great, but omg, it's SO expensive. Double the price for any Debbie Bliss yarn (that's the only kind I've bought there). I once saw some hand dyed yarn there for over $50 a skein! Gah, horrible! It is a really nice store, though, and their classes are really good, too.

I went to the Goodwill in Security and got a huge bag of yarn for only $5!  Yeah its mostly redheart but it is great for granny squares.  I was surprised when I saw it.  Just goes to show you that you never know what is in a thrift store. Smiley

I was home over Christmas and went in there-- and this time around the staff wasn't helpful at all-- in fact they were kind of snobby, which I've started to notice more and more frequently at yarn stores Sad  And I was really displeased with their selection of sock yarns-- they only carried Lorna's Laces and one other brand that I wasn't interested in (and only in two or three colors!).  So I'm glad to be home and ordering from the internet again Wink

I am a thrift store junkie. The Arc used to be good...now I only go on Saturday's since their prices went up so high and Sat is 50% off day.

Then there is the DAV on Circle Drive near Platte. You never know what you will find there.

If you don't mind going a bit South, go to God's Pantry in Fountain. It is cluttered, and sometimes it is packed full of ministry patrons (they give away free food to the needy) but their prices are insanely good and the people are wonderful.

I forgot the mention the good Goodwills....

The one in Security was rebuilt a year or so ago. It is now located behind the Papa John's on Highway 85 in Security.

The (relatively) new Goodwill on Powers is also nice. It is in the shopping center behind the Big 5 sporting goods store. (Cub Foods used to be in the same building if that helps)

Okay, I'm gonna reply to the insanely old thread, b/c I'm excited to find other craftsters in C/S.  I'm in Fountain.  My fave store (not my wallet's fave store, however) is the Bead Gallery on Kelly Johnson right across from the bank.  They have tons of great stuff and are super friendly and helpful.  They are closed on Sundays.  If the idea of a crafty meet and greet is still on the table, I'm in!

So it's been a while since anyone posted here... I was just wondering if there was a SnB or any sort of group I could join? I'm not really looking to sell anything but I'd love to just meet up with some crafters, share ideas, show off skills, learn some new ones, stuff like that. Anyone down?

A really neat place is American Classics Marketplace, on the corner of Constitution and Academy. It is a huge antique mall. There are a lot of interesting stuff to look at and people sell their crafts at some of the booths. Word of warning though... if it is your first visit, give yourself a few hours. There is TONS to look at

I've lived almost my entire life in Colorado Springs, but last fall moved to Brooklyn, NY.
My mom and I are huge crafters and so here's a list of all our favourite places:

American Classics Marketplace - Constitution and Academy. There's an awesome yarn vendor who sells books, needles, hooks, magazines and tons of unique yarns in the very North West corner of the place (in the more warehousey area).

Ruth's Stitchery - near the intersection of Barnes and Austin Bluffs. It's next to where the DMV is or atleast use to be. It's an embroiders paradise! My mom loves that place but it's a bit expensive.

Tandy Leather - on the east side of Academy just before the Maizeland intersection. They sell mostly leather goods. But if you're making a purse or need awesome clasps and things, it's the place to go!

and if you're ever in Denver. The *MOST* awesome fabric/felting/yarn place is Fancy Tiger. I miss Fancy Tiger SOOO MUCH! Sad

There is a SnB, though I think it's called knitwits and hookers, try finding them on meetup.org for col. spgs.

I like The Millend Fabric Outlet on Prospect
I love Antiques Warehouse
and I heard there's a crafter's warehouse, but I lost the slip of paper with the address, so If someone else knows, please post it here.
