I live about twenty minutes from Emporia, but work in Manhattan.  Sadly, Manhattan doesn't really have good thrift stores.  The Grand Old Trunk on 177 is the best; it's large and their stock rotates frequently but their prices are sometimes a bit high. 
I go to Lawrence often and have to agree - the Social Service League rocks!  I love Sarah's fabrics too. 
As for craft groups, we were meeting in Council Grove two times a month last winter (at Prairie Pieces quilt shop).  It started out as a knitting group but there were many other interests and we talked about everything from rug hooking to embroidery to tatting.  I'm going to find out if the group is getting back together this fall. 
The auctions here and in Emporia are also pretty good places to find random things for cheap.  If anyone ever wants to meet for craft discussion or thrifting,just let me know.   Smiley

Been lurking the crafster board for about 6 months now;  think I'll use my first post to say that I, too, am stuck in Kansas, but fortunately in the artsy oasis that is Lawrence.  Nice place to be, much more crafty than my hometown.  Thanks, poppet, for the information.  When did the DAV close?  Also, Crafty and Co. is an awesome place... hope they can survive, because I know I'll be supporting them.

I'm not suggesting
I'm any better than I was before
but getting there is half the fun
and I am halfway there
I'm betting
that even though I've got a good headstart
I'd rather be a bitch than be an ordinary broken heart

well, thank you.

Lawrence is full of cool stuff.

Now if only there was somewhere closer to Emporia . . . or in Lenexa area Kansas City.

While not Lenexa, I have discovered that there is a yarn store in Downtown Overland Park.  I just found out about it a few days ago and haven't been able to go by while they are open yet.  It's between Santa Fe and Metcalf on the south side of 80th.
