I'm a student at Gonzaga...just wondering if there's any other crafty people who live in this tiny town? Especially hookers (not the kind on Sprague, mind you.)

I'm crossing my fingers!

I go to GU as well! What do you mean by hookers, if not the hard workers of Sprague?

I'm in Spokane! I'm not a hooker, though, crochet or otherwise! I think Spokane is definitely lacking in the crafter department. Especially the younger generations. (I'm a senior in high school.) None of my friends really craft.  Undecided

Ak!  If there is no crafting goodness to be had in Spokane I must be in the armpit of Washington over here in Wenatchee Sad  Unless you quilt or scrapbook there isn't much here.  Sad day.

I dont have any problems finding crafty things to do in Spokane. I would like to find some like minded individuals, but there are definately places to shop! I go to SewEZToo over on Garland because they are super nice and take coupons from larger chains like JOannes and Michaels. I'm a knitter, beader, embroider, and just got into spinning yarn. Oh and I go to Eastern.

I'm also here in Spokane.  It's true, this town lacks in crafters... I crochet, and the best yarn store I've seen in Washington is in Leavenworth.  If any of you like Lion Brand Fancy Fur, for the time being, they have a few colors of that at the Dollar Tree stores.   I bought some great Lion Boulce there last week, and unfortunatley I didn't know what I wanted to use it for at the time, so I only got a few skeins.  I decided I wanted to make the Happy Hooker Prepster sweater out of it, and now it's gone...  Cry  So now I need to either use a different yarn, or break down and spend about $6 for a 2.5oz ball...

I'm getting my AA at SFCC then transferring to Eastern.

Like I said before SewEZToo and Holy Threads are both great sources for yarn. You can use any coupon at SewEZtoo and Holy Threads has daily specials like students get 15% off on certain days. We should figure out some sort of a get together or something Smiley

Was that Wooly Bully that you went to?  It is a good shop, it's just small.  There is another one in Wenatchee that is bigger, but I'm not sure it's better yet; haven't looked at the yarn, just the needles.

Not exactly in Spokane, I live about 70 miles north, near Colville.  I love crafting, mostly stained glass and quilting.  I took one tole painting class which was fun, I'd love to learn more about that. And I do a lot of photography.

SlickMariaVic - that sounds great!  I have no clue where those stores are, but I have heard about Holy Threads.  Have you been to A Grand Yarn?  I want to go sometime, but I have yet to figure out where their store is... I'm a valley girl and I sometimes get lost searching around the city.

Crafty Coug - Yeah, I think that's the store.  I do remember it being pretty small.

I actually learned to knit at A Grand Yarn! They are cool, but small and a bit expensive for my tastes. Holy Threads is really awesome because it used to big a big bed and breakfast, plus there is an art gallery there too. Its located by the South Hill on the way down...uh I think Washington? And Sew-EZ-Too is on Garland. Right now I live on the northside so we should figure out a time and place that would work well for people. I wish I knew more people that appreciate the crafty crap I do *boo-hoo*

I'm in Spokane! I live in the valley though, and I am not a hooker. I try, but I am pretty bad at it - and I am seriously hoping that you are talking about crocheting, right now - but I can't make anything except a crooked dishcloth.

I do sew, though. Smiley

Fluxity- don't worry, when you start to crochet things are bound to come out crooked!  it jsut takes som time and practice.  Smiley  I've been crocheting for years and if I don't pay attention, then things go crooked sometimes.. especially if I'm not working off a pattern.

So I went to Holy Threads and A Grand Yarn yesterday after classes yesterday, and wow!  I loved Holy Threads, I'll definitley be back next Thursday, student discount day of course. Smiley 

A Grand Yarn was an ok store, a bit small though.  I loved the tahki cotton they had, so many colors!  I hope they have it at Holy Threads, because buying yarn with a discount is the best thing ever!  But I  really loved that tahki cotton, I want to use it for they Happy Hooker Cupcake pattern, I originally planned to do it in Lion Brand Microspun.

I only have one class today, so I'll head over to Sew-EZ-Too.  I've driven by it on many occassion, but I didn't think they had yarn, I just thought it was a sewing specialty shop.

I'm from Spokane but currently I'm living in Tennessee...where I get made fun of for being a "Northerner". 

lawatha is that sewing store still open in Coville?  It was on Main street across from the Goodwill...they had a huge quilting section, some yarn and tons of lace when I was a kid.  Their prices were a little high though.

I once caught a guy I was dating on Sprague...I had to dump him on the spot...He was from Fairchild...watch out for those Air Force guys!

I'm in Spokane. I live on the South Hill...waaaaay up on the South Hill. I knit, crochet, sew, screenprint, several other things, too, but today's the day after St. Pat's, so I'm a little slower than usual. I'm graduating from SFCC this quarter and starting at Eastern in the fall.

I am an all around crafter but I especially love to knit and crochet. I'm just learning to spin and wanted to know if there are any groups in the area. I found a bunch of knit groups on Ravelry but wanted a more varied bunch.
