Local bead stores in Marion:
Hearthside Gifts - yarn, beads, soap making, soy candle making, 7th Ave
It's Hearthstone Gifts & Supplies.  I just had a soywax candlemaking class there.  It was awesome!  Soy wax... sooo much better than parrafin!

So I was driving through Cedar Rapids on 380 this weekend, and noticed on sign on the west side, across from Marion: "The Needle Case"

Huh Is it a new craft shop???

bummer but WOW -- thanks for the list!  Smiley

Have you been into Stitches Galore in the Czeck Square (off Collins Road)?

Stitches Galore is in Cedar Rapids, just off highway 380.  If you look just south of Collins Road where it intersects 380 you can see a green and white "Chzec Square" sign on a pole -- the strip on the south side of the square, houses the stitch shop. Just next door is a nice bead & yarn shop, and I'm drawing a blank on the name....

AnYWay, Stitches Galore is small, but well-packed; great customer service (if you can get there when they are open); not a lot of stuff, but high quality (it's the only place I've found actual silk embroidery thread in a range of colors); and high-end sewing machines.

i can't remember how to spell "Chzec" -- I've a few ancestors are probably spinning in their graves now....

I dunno if anyone is interested, but there's the Iowa City Sidewalk Sale going on the 20th 21st and 22nd of July in the ped mall.  Dawn's Bead n Hideaway just sent me an email about it, so they're going to have some things out.
