Am I the only crafty person in Saginaw? Please prove me wrong! I'd love to trade with people in the Tri-City area or find a crafting buddy  Huh

Somethin' like that  Wink Not the kinda close where I'd come over and hang out everyday, but close enough to swap in person maybe?

i'm in Bay City  Grin ...but i just moved here a few months ago, so i'm still pretty new to the area.  (in other words, the only craft stores i know of is JoAnn's in midland and walmart)  does anyone know if there are any other craft shops, or events that go on in this area? 

i have seen a few small shops for like sewing and stuff around where i am, but i still havent checked them out yet.

There aren't a whole lot of events in the area.  There are occasionally some craft shows in Freeland (where I live).  Most shows tend to feature very "homespun" type crafts.  Grandma-type things.  Here is a list of some 2007 craft shows, but they all tend to be pretty much the same and draw the same type of crowd.  They also have pretty strict rules for having a booth (having done oh-so-many other shows, blah blah blah.)  Freeland has a pretty good craft show during the Walleye festival.  I did it one year when I was maybe 14.  There was a pretty good turnout for a nice day.  I really wish there was more of an alternative craft movement in the Tri-Cities.  Maybe it is up to us to start it!

As for stores, there is an Essexville Jo-Ann location, though it is about as small as Midland.  There is a superstore in Saginaw on Tittabawassee Rd.  (Where I work).  There's also a Michael's in Midland by the mall and in Saginaw on Bay Rd. across from the mall, and a Hobby Lobby a little further down Tittabawassee.  There's a pretty cute little bead store down the road from me in Freeland (298 S. Main St (M-47) Freeland)

Some other places: 

Purple Sage Beads
230 N. Center
Saginaw, MI

It's Only a Paper Moon Scrapbooks
201 S. 4th Ave
Saginaw, MI

Scrapbook Peddler
4390 Bay Rd.
Saginaw, MI

Robby's Hobbys
1106 Columbus Ave.
Bay City, MI

Dancing Glass Beads & Accessories
3575 N. Euclid Ave.
Bay City, MI

Fabric Fair
206 5th St.
Bay City, MI

Memory Lane
821 Washington Ave.
Bay City, MI

Treasured Memories and More
500 E. Midland St.
Bay City, MI

Essexville Jo-Ann location:

2950 Center Ave. Essexville, MI

Hope these help!  Where did you move from?

Welcome to the thumb-crotch!  There are some pretty nice yarn shops in Frankenmuth (hour or so away from Bay City).

Frankenmuth is definitely a nice place to go if you have the money for it, otherwise I suggest not. I'm quite a fan of the clearance fabric scraps at the Super Wally World out on Tittabawasee in Saginaw Township. Also I noticed that the Dollar Tree on Gratiot in Saginaw had a decent selection of Lion Fun Fur (as does the one in GR on 28th street) which I have seen go for $4-7 a skein elsewhere - definitely a bargain. Saginaw doesn't have a Big Lots anymore but Bay City might - so check them out for good deals too.

I just moved back to Grand Rapids though so no more Saginaw for me. Luckily the Big Lots here has decent $1 furry yarn too Cheesy

Last time I was there, Bay City had a Big Lots.  There are 2 super Wal-Marts in Sagnasty, on Bay Road (just behind the Hooters) and on (just off?) State Street.

Freeland is such a crap-fest.  Nothing to do, you have to drive 20 miles to get to a craft store. . . grrr. . .

I'm from Midland, and we don't have a lot of stuff-- there's Joann's, Michael's, and if you're into sewing, Material Mart has a lot of fun fabrics, and an o.k. assortment of yarns.  There's a scrapbooking store over behind the mall that I really like, too.

Saginaw Township resident.  Would love meeting with other crafters from time to time for coffee and conversation, swapping projects/ideas/etc.  Particularly into my knitting, quilting, beading and home dec.   New yarn shop behind Daddy's Rich Bitz on State St, Saginaw.

Hey beauty queens.
I'm from Saginaw but I just moved to Frankenlust, super close to Delta. The Salvation Armies in Midland and Bay City are absolutely the best. I'm pretty new to the crafting scene but I'm a seasoned thrifting veteran. The aforementioned thrift stores and Goodwill and The Old Town thrift stores in Saginaw are the best for finding vintage fabric and clothes to refurbish.

I'm going to be back in the greater Nasty area in a few weeks.  Anyone still in Saginaw?

Okay, this thread is super-old, but I've never been to this section of craftster before and just saw it and got way too excited that there are so many people in my area. I'm in Wheeler (which I bet none of you even know, since out claim to fame is a blinking light and a sugar beet receiving station), between Alma and Saginaw. Looking for holiday craft fairs in the area that aren't already filled up, as I just made the mental commitment to actually get out there and try to sell some of my things, and happened upon this thread and wanted to say hi. So... hi! Smiley Have a good day!
