I just moved here too and would be interested in learning about AA/Ypsi craft stores. So far, I've only been to The Flying Sheep (a yarn store) and it was way too pricey for me.

There's a Jo-Anns on Ann Arbor Saline Rd also.

If you feel like driving to Adrian (30 minutes), there is a Hobby Lobby there, which has anything you can imagine. Way better than a Super Jo-Anns or Micheals in my opinion.

www.hobbylobby.com has the store locator, which would give you the address and such.

I, also, have just moved to the area. I would love to know of some maybe bead stores. Like forthebirds said, all I know of is the Hancock and the JoAnns (which I work at  Grin ) on Carpenter.

There is a wicked awesome bead store down by the University. I usually drive up and visit from Toledo and can't think of the name of the name of the street. But it's down the street from Boarders and the Japanese amime shops and Orchid Lane. I know the street dead ends into the old theater that is now an Urban Outfitters.  I just take an afternoon and wander around down there cause there are so many wonderful shops right against campus that it can take all day to go through them. Sorry I can't think of a name or address, but I know independant bead shops exist through there.

Are you talking about The Bead Gallery? Kind of near a huge bank on the corner and Kolossos printing? Its kind of above a gem/stone store?

That might be the name. It's kind of in a corner in a building with other shops. I think there's a comic books shop in the basement next door.

That bead store is on Liberty. I didn't know it was still there! Here's their web site: http://beadgalleryannarbor.com/

There is also Knit A Round on Plymouth Road  (2663 Plymouth Road, Ann Arbor, Michigan, 48105 (734) 998-3771) .  And Busy Hands (yarn, etc.) on 306 S. Main.

I don't shop much at these yarn shops...I'm more of a knitpicks.com girl, but Knit A Round has a great selection of stuff.
