Any crafters in Colombia? I do not live there but i have family there. Any good places to buy supplies? I would love to learn more about any tradition crafting in Colombia!

Blessings,
Tina

I sew, paint unfinished wood, sketch, make jewelry, crochet a bit, loom knit, and sew. Pretty much if I can get my hands on it to learn, then I will know it. Maybe not perfectly, but enough for a hobby.

Craftster in Colombia present!

Currently living in Medelln.

It depends what you call "good" places to buy supplies, we dont have anything like joanns or michaels or big box stores, but downtown medelln has many "pasamaneras" and stores where they sell sewing notions, crochet needles, string, thread, yarn, buttons, snaps, metal findings, and stuff I dont even know what it is for. The difference is that you cant browse, everything is behind a counter, so you kinda have to know what you are looking for, or go when they aren't very busy and ask for them to hand over everything so you can examine the packages!

La Reina is a chain store that does beading, embroidery and other workshops and sells the notions, they are mostly everywhere in Medelln.

As for traditional crafting, I'm not really familiar with it. Many artisans are working in novel techniques (like jewelry with melon seeds or orange peels) but the "sharing" culture is not very popular here. However, women still do a lot of embroidery, they knit, they crochet, they sew, they do bobbin lace and cutwork and other lovely stuff.
