The chains kinda killed the local bookstore scene, otherwise I would have suggested one of those. 

*gasp*!

Amazon, Arise, BookSmart, Midway Books, Magers & Quinn, Red Balloon! The book scene is still alive, even if might be struggling for air!

Maybe a place like this?

Haven't been there yet, but apparently its the new "hip" studio in Burlington, and in the north end which is a nice break from all the touristy bullshit downtown!

Canvas Gallery in San Francisco?  They hold the monthly Feria Urbana and feature several artists throughout the month.  There are so many "crafty" stores in town - Beadissimo, Stitch, Craft Gym - I'm sure you'll find a place...in fact I think the best bets might be Craft Gym and the Canvas!  Hope you make it out here!

Puttin' in a fourth for the good ol' Twin Ciities. We are hip, we are crafty and we have the largest anarchist population in the country! Hahaha..

Anyway, I think Crafty Planet would be spectacular, but the space might be a limitation..

Needlework Unlimited makes me kind of mad, but it is huge.

Borealis Yarns is pretty big, and they have a coffee shop attached! It is fantastic. I go there all the time.

For non-LYS choices, I'd just like to plug how Minneapolis has the best coffee shops ANYWHERE. Haha.. I can totally imagine a crafty get together at Caffetto or Spyhouse.

Hmmm.. Yes. Come here!

I would love to come to Minneapolis because then I can go to AxMan Surplus! I went there a couple of years ago and I was like a kid in a candy store. Oooh -- and then there was Sister Fun which I've heard it now closed. Sad So sad.

Ax Man does rock.  It's like candy for us craftsters.  Or crack.  Crack-covered candy.  There's also May Day books.  I'm so excited - I hope you come to the Twin Cities!

I think you should come closer to RI...SOmerville mass is way to far....I was thinking maybe as220 in Providence...Its a venue down stairs and studios upstairs and thay have tons of different crafty classes

YES PROVIDENCE!!! I think AS220 is a great idea...or there's always Books on the Square, and White Electric Coffee has had book readings from time to time.

Powells Bookstore in Portland, Oregon. They're an awesome local bookstore!!!

I agree--you can't get much better than Powells--and I think that portland has a great, and very active craft community!
Congratulations on the new book Smiley

Colorado!! we are right here in the middle and dying for some crafty inspiration! I live in Colorado Springs but I would suggest Denver (for obvious reasons).  I can only think of one place: The Tattered Cover Bookstore is great and always has book signings etc.  Please come through here!!  All of us landlocked crafty folk would be tremendously ecstatic.

Hi!  I own The Glitter Workshop, a craft-art boutique  in Madison, WI that showcases over 100 local and national artists, and we would LOVE to have you!  Madison and the area communities have a great crafting movement going on and it would be absolutely awesome. 

Let me know if you would like more info!
