I've just been to a few smallish craft shows, but it seems there is a craft show advertised in St. Charles every 3 or 4 months.  Also, I know SIUE used to have a show in the University Center every November, and I've been to a large craft show at Triad H.S. in Troy before.  

As far as stores, there are a couple of Coomer's Craft Malls in the area (next to St. Clair Square in Fairview Hgts. and in South County, MO, same plaza as K-Mart).  

As far as actual craft stores for supplies here are a few I like:

Michaels (Fairview Hgts.)
Hobby Lobby (Fairview Hgts.)
Garden Ridge (Fairview Hgts.)
Ben Franklin (Belleville & also on Tesson Ferry in South Co. Mo.  It has a TON of beading supplies)
Schnider's Hobby Center (on Gravois in Sunset Hills, MO.)

wonderful

I've been to all of those stores except for the Coomer's craft mall.  I've never been in it, but passed it several times..  Is it worth the stop?

There is a bead store in Glen Carbon... A&A Beads...I believe the name is... right next to Blockbuster. Firemountaingems.co m has the best prices from what I have found though. Where you guys from? I just moved to Collinsville from Maryville. I'm a local artist trying to make a name for my jewelry. Been really good so far... but the local coverage is harder. Check out my site...

hey i know you! lol well sort of. i'm in the same area - i work at a Great Clips and one of your cards ended up on my front desk, i checked out your site and you have some pretty cool stuff.

out of all the locations listed for good craft stuff, my favorites are the flea market in belleville [every third weekend of the month]. i always come home with a few usefull things..and then some. great vintage buttons at low cost if you look hard enough. Coomers used to be pretty neat back a few years ago, but my mother and i stoped going because it seemed a lot of the crafters stoped renting their booths, it could be different now though - i'll have to check back into it.

HI, I'm in your neighborhood.  I live about an hour from Fairview.
I can't even find any shops that would suite my taste to sell my wares.  I thought University City would have something.  I haven't found it yet.
OOhh well.
 Nice to meet you all.
