i live in queens too, but i think it's miles above the other boroughs in terms of options.  at least we have smileys and up by my house, there's a big Rag Shop which has lots of crafty goodness.  i live in northeastern qns & have a car, so if there are must-visit crafty outlets esp in Nassau, definitely post them because I'm always popping around on weekends to new places. speaking of LIRR, there's a new weekend $2.50 fare which might come in handy for this sort of expedition.

suzukibeane - PLEASE list the good thrifts.  not only do i wanna shop them, i also have a car trunk full of things i purged but need a good place to donate.  thanks!

I know this thread was a little dusty, but I am a Long Island craft chick checking in!

I am a social worker by day and an artist/crafter 24/7/365 (366 in leap years!)  I dabble in just about anything that I can sink my hands into, but my main vices are stained glass mosaics, jewelry design, ceramics and sewing (although I am only a basic seamstress and will be taking classes to hone my craft!).  I have also played around with rubber stamping, fabric painting and fine art painting.  I know how to crochet but haven't done it in a few years....I definitely want to get back into crocheting and want to learn how to knit.  Whew!  *wipes forehead and takes a deep breath!*

Do any of you ladies know of any craft groups in either county?  I would love to hook up with other craft addicts on Long Island and in NYC!

Greetings from the South Shore....
I am also from Long Island, and was excited to see this thread!

I'm the craft person who has a new idea every other day, but never finnishes anything that takes longer than a week to do  Embarrassed
Right now, I am in a jewelery and cross stitch phase. Alot of my "work" is tattoo art inspired.

I just discovered the ne AC Moore in Hauppauge. They have awesome wood cut outs that are made for fraterity paddles and such, but can easily be turned "tattoo style". The skull and cross bones wood cut out had endless possibilities (especially when paired with the butterfly cut out).

Anywho...I dont know of any crafting groups in the area. Any ideas?
