The way i see it we live in a happy farmer state which is sort of unfriendly to craftsters who arent making doileys and tea cozies. So if you guys know of places in the state where you can buy other people crafty things, good craft shows, anything you think the young crafter would appreciate knowing aboutor state, share. Hopefully this thread wont be a coplete dead end.

Wish that I knew of a place. I wento "The Big One" craft show last month and I wasn't really impressed. There wasn't a lot of things that really appealed to me. Just like you said...just tea cozies and faux doll tissue covers. Undecided

i know that a lot of minnesota towns have shows in the summer time. if anyone is interesting in having a communal booth at such an event in gf or in the area someone should try and pull it all together. i know i dont have enough stuff to have my own booth(sigh, one day) but id love to get a few peoples stuff together for an event.

Probably in the summer, traveling to other towns hours away will merit the booth space, eh? Some day a good craft fair will mosey along.

im determined to make this thread useful so heres my new find.

deitrich sewing in east grand forks (i know i know its minnesota but its just across the bridge from grand forks) has got the nicest lady running it. they sell mostly bernina machines but she also is the only one in the area that does sewing machine repairs. she also does tune ups and was super helpful in my recent purchases. so definitly a good place to buy your next bernina

(she also has a few used machines)

Hell yes, Fargo is awesome. Been there quite a bit recently with little time to screw around. Maybe Nick will let me drive again and I can subject him to some crafty shopping. He puts up with my sewing and crocheting on his couch when we're supposed to be spending time together, it'll be old hat soon Smiley

arg. i cant crochet. but i have been spending quite a bit of time knitting at school/lunch/work and i think my purlely plutonic friend david thinks its kinda funny.  i was sehr tempted to take it to the metalfest for doing between taking door money. but i decided it would be too smokey smelling to subject my yarn to.
