I've never been here, but I've been tempted... there's apparently a place in Maple Grove called the Studio at Rush Creek.  www.studio-rush.com

They do all sorts of things, glass work and painting, metal work...

If anyone goes there, let me know how you like it!  It's so tempting!  (They advertise a lot of their classes on craigslist, that's how I found out about them...)

I'm a native St Paul gal, now  living elsewhere. I visited this thread to see what new places I should check on my next trip home (thank you all!), but I also have one to add:

 Mosaic on a Stick
It's in St Paul, on Snelling Ave (north of University Ave, south of Hamline University) http://mosaiconastick.com/

It has mosaic supplies--like, the last time I was there, a whole rack of different colors of grout, which I didn't even know existed---books, some finished pieces for sale, studio space, classes, parties, and a fun creative atmosphere. The owners, Lori and Maria, are friendly and also pretty multi-crafty  so if you are new to the area, or new to crafting, they are good people to talk to about other craft'n'art venues and stores.

There was a commercial on late at night a few months back, for a place in the Twin Cities area that sold all kinds of crafting supplies. The ad showed a bunch of doll parts, among other things. I can't recall the name of the place, but really want at least the web address. If you know what I'm talking about, PLEASE contact me. I've been trying to find this place since last spring!

Doll parts? Sounds like Ax-man, possibly?

THAT'S IT!!!
I figured someone would know what I was talking about! Have you been to that store? I'm wondering if it would be worth the drive from WI.
THANK YOU!!!
