I live in Chicago, and I'm surrounded by LYS's, but none of them hold a candle to the ones in Alaska!  I LOVE Fantastic Fiber.  When I dream of yarn shopping, I always dream that I'm there!

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

I may have missed this, but are there any groups that get together for crafting. I love learning and sharing varied techniques of different crafts. So I am interested in finding a group that gets together.
I am in Talkeetna, but can drive 1 month to wasilla or every few months to fairbanks. I try to avoid Anchorage, no offense to anchoragites.

It would be great to get a crafting group together for at least once a month. It is hard here in Alaska, especially in the rural sections where many of us are so far apart. I would love to do craft skill swap group. (hehehe)
Meet once a month and teach each other new crafting skills. I would love to learn so many different things, any craftster's interested around Talkeetna (Wasilla,palmer, Houston,Willow, Anchorage?)

I do portable items for sure, I am a big knit in public kinda ggrll...  I am up for opening my living room/dining/kitchen for a get together or two.  Or open to going about town.. I live in Palmer...

Wow... lots of people down near Anchorage.  Sad

I'm up in Fairbanks.  It looks like there's really only the bead store here now or Michaels and JoAnnes.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

I just moved up here in October, my husband is AF so we're on Elmendorf.

I sew and do paper crafting (cards and a tiny bit of scrapbooking.) I like Seams Like Home in the University Center. Other than Joann and Michael's, that's the only craft store I've visited. I saw a scrapbook store somewhere (the only road names I know are the ones I frequent, lol.) Are there any other good fabric stores around?

Hi!  I am in Anchorage - just moved here this summer!  I mostly embroider and do scrapbooking, but also knit and a few other things.  As far as fabric stores, there is one in midtown, I think it is called the Quilt Tree?  There are a couple of quilt stores around town, but I am told by ladies I work with that they are pretty expensive, and you are better off at JoAnne's.
