I MUST have crafty bitches to stitch with!!!! It was my saving grace here in Atlanta! I sew, embroider, glue shit together, recycle stuff, and refinish stuff. Fort Smithians holla!

Hey! I'm from the Fort but I live/go to school in fayetteville now. I'm usually home on the weekends. Fort Smith is kinda slow but theres great thrifting and its less than an hour from fayetteville, which is much craftier.

Yay! Yep, I'm moving to the Fort at the end of the month. Headed there tomorrow for 2 weeks to scout out apartments - know of any good 2 bdrm places under $400 a month? A house would ROCK, actually. Van Buren/Alma/etc would work, too.

I know that JoAnn closed fairly recently. Is Hobby Lobby the only place to get goodies these days or did anything else open up?

There's hancocks if you're looking for fabric...  It's right by Sam's Club...

Hiya ladies!

So, I don't actually live in Arkansas but I do however live right across the state line in OK. (About 26 miles outside Poteau if you know it) Ft. Smith is closer then OKC or Tulsa for me so I get all my crafty goodies there. I make jewelry mostly, although I'm trying to undertake crocheting too.  Grin I would dearly love to have people to craft with, even if it's not the same type of crafting.

Happy Crafting!

Ok, as far as i can tell in fort smith, the only local crafty shop is the local yarn store StringTown.  Other than that, i haven't really found anything.  Fayetteville is definitely the jackpot as far as crafty goodness goes.

Hey ladies!

I've lived here for a year now, and I've accumulated a ridiculous amount of crafting stuff. I need to de-stash because I'm trying to clean up my crafting room a little and get organized.  I have some fabric, yarn, knitting needles, random vintage crafting supplies ( doll heads and such..don't ask) and a lot of fabric scraps that would be good for quilting.  So if any of you need any of this stuff, you're welcome to come take it, I'd rather a fellow craftster get it than some random person on Craigslist.

Let me know ladies!

If I could buy the world a coke, then I would say "SCREW YOU WORLD" and go buy more fabric.

well I am not there at the moment.  but I will be back in a year.  here is the low down for crafts other than Hobby Lobby and Michaels
for yarn sringtown is the place!  http://stringtownyarn.com/
for fabric main street fabric in van buren http://www.mainstreetfabricsvb.com/ you can get Michael Miller and Amy butler there and she is growing.
also Just for fun fabrics in ft smith http://jfffabrics.com/index.asp best supply of Amy butler
and in Greenwood Mammas log house http://www.mamasloghousequiltshop.com/ very limited hours and way out in the middle of no where buut the bigest selection of fabric in the area make sure you call to make sure they are open before you take the drive!
also in greenwood is http://www.crookedcreekquiltshop.com/ a little more old fashioned but they are famous for long arm quilting.  I have found more in the ft smith area than in fayettville so you just have to know where to look!

Hey! Hi! Is anybody STILL out there? Are you guys still in the area? It's crazy, but I recently found this site, and just for the heck of it, thought I'd do a search for my area and I see people, crafters!! But these posts are so old, so I guess I just answered my own question.

I live in Van Buren and am new, sort of, to the awesome art and craft world. I don't know how this is possible, but it's true. Anyway, I've been wondering if there are ANY crafters around here?? I'd absolutely love to take some classes, i.e., multimedia, stamping, embossing, digital imaging, the whole 9.

If anyone is interested in getting together or know of ANY classes, I'd be eternally grateful Shocked!!! Feel free to contact me, or PM,; however it's done here. Looking forward to hearing from anyone!! Thanks for your time!! 

Best regards, 

Christina Webber
