i am a member of the vern yip board - and someone posted this there...

"Hello to all my fellow Georgians,

Vern posted info about his secret Atlanta location buying furniture, but have you ever been to his favorite fabric emporium? He mentioned the name at the Atlanta home show, and my interest was peaked! The store is called "Southeast Yarns," and it is in Lithia Springs, the same town I teach in, only two miles down the road.

The bargains are truly unbelievable! After hearing about it, my mom and I went. We each wanted to upholster a bench we had bought. She chose a gorgeous tapestry fabric. You have to ask for prices, and we quickly found that our $20.00 per yard estimate was way off! The gorgeous fabric was actually only $4.00 a yard. We liked it so much that we went back the next day and bought enough to reupholster her dining room chairs. We are now hopelessly addicted. We are just waiting for the day when we will bump into our hero Vern.

Vern, if you read this, just know that you have an open invitation to lunch at Sweetwater Elementary School! I'll even buy your lunch, if I'm not over my charge limit. Maybe you could even find something to do to my boring classroom.

Warm Wishes on a Cold Atlanta Morning,
Amos"

anyone been there - i tried to google it - but no info came up...

someone also posted this

"I'm an Atlanta girl, too.

Also, because this is the Atlanta shopping thread, I thought I'd point out that all y'all should be addicted to the By Design warehouse. I bought an awesome coffee table there for $30."

Sorry I haven't checked back to see who else is lurking here.

divasteph: I'm willing to attempt to teach you to knit if you'd like. I managed to show a friend of mine enough of the basics that she ran off with a pair of my needles & ball of bulky yarn to make a scarf.  Wink

Did a search for AC Moore...the closest location is in Columbus. From the pic's it's your typical chain craft store, although it looks bigger/has larger selection than Michael's. I don't know how it would compare to say Hobby Lobby, which I drive past on a regular basis waiting for it to open in the Startime Entertainment complex in Roswell.

Oh, I also do a lot of shopping at Dick Blick in Roswell. Usually I go from the yarn store to the art store since they're so close. I don't know of any "small" craft or art stores, just the chains mentioned. Oh, and there's Utrecht downtown (on Peachtree St, I think).
