hey there arizonan craftsters! Smiley
i was wondering if i've got any fellow tucsonans out there! would any of you be interested in a kind of unofficial swap? since i'm new here i've got to wait until i join any real swaps Sad BUT since we'd all be in town, we could meet in person to do our swap instead of mailing it. sound fun? let me know...

edit: also, could you guys tell me where you shop for cheap fabric? it would be much appreciated Smiley thanks!

i go to SAS fabrics a lot.  it's a huge mess, but it works.  it is on speedway and craycroft i believe.    if you are into thrift stores my favorite is value village on 4th avenue across from omalleys.  they have amazing deals on saturdays!  hope it helps.

I'm okay with being unimpressive. I sleep better.

Yay desert! I'd like a swap, or a fabric hunt at SAS, or a craft night at Shot in the Dark/ coffeehouse of your choice...

Hi, I'm in Tucson, too, although I'm a mom of teens and wife to working husband. I'm just about to start selling (I hope) on Etsy. I like to make things out of vintage and retro linens. There are some shops on the eastside where I live where you can pick up finds for a dollar or 2. They may be rarer here than Value Village, but they're so much cheaper.

Keep in touch. I don't have anyone to sit and craft with. Would be nice to see real people now and then.

Also if you get on the Jo-Ann fabric mailing list, you get 40% off coupons. While it's all new stuff, the coupon (and they email them - I just print 4 or 5) makes it possible to afford specialty fabrics like brocades and boucle now and then.

w00t!  zonie & proud!  i generally go to SAS or JoAnns.  I also get hand-me-down fabric-heehee!  an in-town swap would be kewl!  I'm always startled to see fellow Tusconans online!  BTW, Speedway Thrift Outlet is a great source for cheap clothes that can be worn/attacked/altered etc.
