Hello everyone!

I am a very active crafty gal and I do all sorts of things:
-mostly jewelry work wite fine precious stones and swarovskis and sterling silver
-wire wrapping
-i can knit but i can't cast on (haha! i'm a rare breed)
-i can crochet
-i paint my little heart out
-i draw/sketch/etc
-mosaics
-makeup (hey it counts when you do it creatively! i do theatrical makeup as a hobby)
-scrapbooking
-bead embroidery
 
I'll be moving to Gainesville to start studying Graphic Design at Santa Fe Community College starting August 17th and I have already been doing my research on this place! I currently live in Pensacola and while most people don't think it looks like much, we happen to have two bead stores (across the street from one another!) Moon Dance and a place that is simply called Beads and both are amazing. We have one of the super Joanns, a Hancock, tons of craft friendly Walmarts, Targets, and a few hobby places. I thought Gainesville was going to be a bust as far as supplies go, but after looking in the back of one of my bead magazines I noticed that there are THREE bead places in Gainesville! Gifts of Avalon www.giftsofavalon.c om http://www.gainesvilletoday.com/2005/07/gifts_avalon.asp That is an article about it in the Gainesville Today paper. The Sun Center Bead emporium http://beadlinks.com/suncenterbeademporium.html and an adorable store by the name of
Bead All About It http://beadallaboutit.net/ 

Have any of you had any experience with these bead stores? Are they all by the strand, or individual bead sellers? And what are the prices and staff like? I used to work at aplace with a rather rude owner (thats why I quit) who pushed people to spend more money and made customers uncomfortable, so I'm hoping that these places are awesome!

I'm just moved to g-ville and oh, man, I am desperate need of crafting buds. Someone nice enough to teach me how to knit would be a bonus...

Also! Pensacola--nice beaches. I was there recently, visiting the boyfriend's parents. Small town, but nice.

Sadly, the Sun Center Bead Emporium has since gone out of business. I really miss that place. Cindy had all sorts of unique stuff. *sniff*

The other two stores are still open, and are a stone's throw from each other near the intersection of NW 43rd Street and NW 23rd Blvd. Both sell hanks and individual beads and have an extensive selection. The staff have never been rude to me.
