I knit and crochet mostly, but also sew clothing, bags and such.  I'd like to get into jewelry, but I think that will have to wait until some of my yarn and fabric dissapears or the hubby won't be to happy.. heh.

What do the rest of you do?

edit:  Oh, I'm also in Minot.  Just moved here from GF a month ago.

Sorry, not in ND but look to the south and you'll find me in SD (Chamberlain to be exact!).

I crochet and make & sell my jewelry (www.funkyjunkie.biz). I'm part of a small group who meets weekly for knit & crochet, too.

I do a little sewing, though it's been awhile since I've pulled out my ancient Singer. I'm actually waiting on a hand-me-down Singer from my MIL, less ancient & easier to use. So, yes, hoping to get into more sewing - clothing & home decor. If nothing else, I need something to use up my stash of thrift store fabric!

If memory serves me right, I hear there's a good bead store in Minot(?).

I don't know of that bead store.  Do you remember the name of it?  I'll have to look it up and see.

I leave this board alone so often, dang!

I'm a kinda-knitter, more of a crocheter. I love random fabric stuff like skirts and purses and pillowcases and bags.
I love clothes like crazy, so modifying and all that's a kick.

I'm a terrible with a sewing machine and I could never get past a single stitch with crochet, so I stick to paper arts, mosaic work, and welding.  Tape is also a favored tool, and my favorite materials to work with are probably craft wire and broken objects.

I'm in Fargo.
I love to crochet, I learned to knit, and I own a sewing machine.  For the most part though, I just buy pretty yarn, hold to to my face, and fantisize about what I could make if I had more time or space. It really helps if you have space to sprawl your craft stuff out.  I live in a studio- I have no sprawl space!

I live in Minot but as of next week I will live in Cavalier. When I first moved here the lack of fabric stores turned me from being mainly a sewer to a knitter. I somehow don't like buying fabric on the internet but yarn doesn't bother me.

BTW-This may be old news but these is a yarn store in Minot called the Yarn Stash. They have a nice selection of yarn and there prices are less than a couple of the yarn catalogs I get.
