Just curious if there are any craftistas (or craftistos!) in the Charleston area.  I'm surprised at the lack of great craft stores in such an artsy area.

Yeah no kidding! I'm in Charleston too and have to get most of my supplies when I go to Houston TX or Raleigh NC to visit family.

What kind of supplies are you looking for?

I just hate having to drive to North Charleston to AC Moore's or Michael's.  Hmmm, I think there's a Hancock Fabrics in N. Ashley.  But I'm bummed that there isn't a Joann's around here.

I'm not looking for anything in particular, per se, but I have a bunch of ideas swimming about in my head, like sublime stitching, silkscreening, etc.  I like the cool art store on King St., but I feel like I can get all that stuff cheaper online.

I do like that there's an AC Moore coupon in the paper every Wednesday ... going now to grab it Smiley

Yeah I get a lot of stuff on-line too. Well at least the Hancocks, Michaels, and AC Moore is all right there together in the shopping centers next to each other and near Wal-Mart too for those other items.

I just need to figure out what time and what day when Ashley Phosphate is the least crowded, and go then.

Seriously!  I'm not that happy with Hancock's selection, prices, help.... I, too, pick things up when I'm home.  I'm having the same problem with beading: I had a store very much like the Beaded Venus that I frequented in Ohio, and while BV has a pretty similar inventory, it's at least 1/3 more expensive.
I have had some luck with a little fabric store on Coleman Blvd, close to Patriot's Point, in a little strip mall.  It's mainly "home decorating" fabrics, but I've used quite a bit of their stuff for purses and a funky quilt I'm starting.  The best part: they have a $1 bin in the back for fabrics that they don't think they have enough to sell. It's all a buck, regardless of how much fabric there is or how much it cost initially.  Drat! I shouldn't tell you that!  Now I'll have less!  Wink  However, I couldn't tell you the name, but I can tell you it's in the same strip mall as the AAA office.

I went there today (Decorator Fabrics?) and all they had were pieces for $4.50/yd.  Not a good deal Sad
