Hi all!
My husband and I are moving to Phoenix in about four weeks.  In fact, we're flying there tomorrow and staying for two weeks while he starts orientation for his new position (that's the reason we're moving, he got a promotion), and we're going to do some house hunting too while we're there.  Wish us luck, I need a place to actually live when we get there or the cats will be upset at me.  Undecided

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has any general advice about great yarn stores or craft stores.  Also what the best neighborhoods are good to live in.  I'm hoping to study fashion design at Phoenix college, does anyone go there or know what it's like?  So yeah, I guess I'm just looking for reccomendations and reassurance about this moving thing.
Thanks everyone!

Tinafish, thanks for the reply.  Right now, we're in Scottsdale, that's where my husband's new office is.  We'll be looking for a house in Chandler or Gilbert I think.  I hope we find one, we have two weeks here, then it's back to MI for a week to pack and move back here.  It seems pretty sudden, but I hope I'll get used to it. 

Dude, it's super hot here!  I think I fried myself walking around shopping.  Note to self, sun block is a must for even ten minutes!

I went to a nice needlepoint/cross stitch store called Old Town Needlework today.  It was nice, even though I'm not into needlepoint.  I was hoping it'd be a yarn store.  I don't have a car, I'm not much of a driver, so I'm looking for stuff in walking distance.  I did pick up a mystery by Earlene Fowler, I haven't read any of hers yet.  I eat the ones by Monica Ferris, and the lady in the grave said this one is really good too.

So, I guess I'm feeling a bit more secure about moving.  I'll get my own room to use as a studio, yay!  Now if I can just get used to this evil sun and the mean looking cacti!    Grin

i don't knit...i really want to learn, but here's a link of a few yarn places in town. i dont know if they will be of help.

http://www.woolworks.org/stores/az.html

it IS hot here.  Smiley i'm originally from california and have only been in arizona for about 4 years. so i'm still getting used to my 2nd summer here. ( i usually went home to my parents' in cali for summer) my bf and i have just purchased a home a few months ago and are still settling down.

i truly hope your moving experience out here will be great. please feel free to email/pm..when you want. i know how it feels to come to a new town and not know where to start!!

i'm definatly not a knitter (i've tried, but that first knot step is beyond me).  there are a lot of michaels, joanns and a few other fabric stores that all sell yarn dotting the valley.  the biggest most beautiful joanns is in scottsdale, in the pavilions shopping center (which is great btw, if you want to go major shopping but want to avoid the mall scene- they have EVERYTHING there).  i'm not too educated in the gilbert/chandler area as i'm in tempe/mesa, but feel free to ask me questions too Smiley

Actually, I'm not much of a knitter myself, but I crochet, and I've just started designing patterns, so I'm looking for a good source for great yarns, and even though they don't really seem to respect crocheting much, that means knitting stores.  Smiley  Well, I suppose they're not mean to crocheters, I probably just have a chip on my shoulder.

Anyway, we've been looking at houses, there are some pretty nice ones.  The neighborhood is an important part of the decision, since I don't drive, I sort of want an accessible kind of neighborhood.  There's one we saw that's not too far from a Wal-mart and there's a place called CraftMart too.  I didn't get to go in, does anyone grave at that chain?  Is it a good store for supplies?  I'd eat to have a part time job there... if only for the discount, hehe.

I like it here so far, but I got sunburned today even through my spf 45.  I guess my lily white skin will just have to toughen up.  We're looking at houses with pools, so it's possible that this might be the first time in my life that I'll be tan.  The architecture and scenery are so different from Michigan, it'll really take some time to get used to it.  But I'll bet my family will be coming to stay so much I won't get a chance to miss them.  They'll think they're coming to some kind of resort.

I do have one question: do I really have to shake out my shoes before I put them on, or was my older brother making fun of me?  Do scorpians and lizards get into the houses?  Is there anything poisonous that could hurt my cats?  Okay, so more than one question, but thanks for being so nice and helpful you guys!

let's see...that scorpion thing..that is kinda true. i would make sure to keep an eye on your cats. my puppy stepped on one about a month ago. my bf and i freaked out, but i guess most common scorpion stings are the equivilent of a honey bee sting. still not the greatest feeling, but better than thinking that your dog only has 7 hours to live (which is what we thought). they won't get into the house if you're careful. you should be just fine.

craftmart is similar to joanns' i dont have as much experience with that store. i've purchased a couple quilt fabrics, but that's it. a part time job would be very cool.

if youre talking about the craftmart on alma school..that area seems nice for homes! i'm on the opposite end..way far west from there. furthur east of alma school...towards chandler has great neighborhoods. i have a pool at my house. it's almost a must to have a pool near by..it's definitely worth it in the summer ...or almost year round!

have you had a chance to go down to mill avenue? that's quite an old/artsy area...althought it now has much more college town/mainstream stores...it's still a nice street to visit.

anyway, glad you're adapting so well!  Smiley

my reply to scorpions!

it really depends on where you live.  i've lived in 9 different homes, and only one had a scorpion problem.  if you live on the outskirts, near any open fields, you might have them.  the biggest factor though is construction!  my mom lives right by a freeway and the construction of the freeway (or building, new roads, etc) will cause insects out of their natural habitat and right into your backyard!  she kills 2-3 scorpions per month and she lives in the middle of tempe.  i however, living just 10 miles from her, having had a single scorpion in my house. 

good luck finding a house!!!  i have many co-workers who live in chandler and are very happy with it.

p.s. my house has a pool and it's the only way to go.  my car doesn't have air conditioning, so my 15-20 minute commute just screams for a dip in the pool after 20 minutes of sweating your eyeballs out.

I think we've found a house!  As long as the inspection stuff and the financing go okay, we should be able to move in in August.  It's in Chandler, so it's not a super bad commute for my husband to get to work.  It's got a pool too, so I'm super happy about it.

I'd eat to have a garden, there's enough room on the lot for some big containers or a little garden patch, but I have no idea what will grow here.  I'm so not a fan of catus.  And I think it'll take me a little while to get used to the, "rocks and gravel make great ground cover" school of landscaping.  Where I come from, no grass means you just built a new house, or you don't care about your yard.  I know it's not like that here, but I still have a hard time thinking that a mound of stones is a good substitute for a flower bed.  So if I'm willing to baby them and put them in containers, do you think I can get flowers and veggies to grow down here?

Thanks for the reassurance about the scorpions, I think I'm over my fear of that now.  As long as no lizards get in the house, I think I'll be okay.

i worked at a target garden center may through october a couple years ago.  you can grow stuff, it just takes more effort and eat than it does elsewhere.  cacti and succulents grow best of course (and there are some succulents that are very pretty- i had a candy apple plant that did great until we moved and i dropped it, and portulaca are also pretty).  my neighbor at my old house had a huge vegetable garden, though i'm not completely sure what she grew.  if you pick a nice spot that gets enough shade, use some good soil in a big ol' pot and water a lot you'll do fine Smiley

i must honestly have a blue thumb because i can barely keep the grass on my lawn green (yes you heard right...i actually have a lawn  Cheesy) it's a little yellow, but it's better than the "rock landscape." good luck with your plants..you should be fine. with enough watering (make sure it's when the sun's not out boiling your plant alive) they should do well.  Smiley

You may already have found out about it by now, but Fiber Factory is my favorite LYS.  It's got a nice friendly atmosphere and tons of knttiing, crocheting, and spinning supplies.  It's a little more expensive than your run o' the mill Michael's or Joann's, but I'm willing to pay a little extra for an independently owned small business.  Unfortunately, I don't have a car either, (or fortunately, I should say.  I'm proud not be a polluter and you should be too.), so I have to make the long trek from Tempe to Downtown Mesa, by car or bicycle.   But have no fear, they're putting in a light rail soon and travel will be me much more convenient.

Hey BebbyCat I'm in Chandler too.  Grin

I would think you could get a garden growing here. I'd like a little veggie patch myself when we get our back yard fixed up (yes the front is rock but I want at least SOME some grass in the back...I miss lawns). I know a neighbor has some stuff growing becuase she gave us watermelons the frist year we lived in the house.

Thanks guys for the advice about growing stuff.  I'll have to see if I can find any books at the library about gardening in the southwest.

We're here now and all moved in, though not completely unpacked.  I've still got to do all the books and all my sewing room stuff before I can consider myself unpacked enough.  The rest is Christmas stuff and it can stay there until then.   Grin

I think I may be adjusting to the heat, but then again, it's not as hot now as it was the last time we were here.  I eat having a pool, and I think I even know how to take care of it now.

I went into the Craftmart yesterday to look for a screenprinting kit, and to sorta scope them out.  They didn't have any of the kits, which I thought was odd, but I did decide that I really want to work there.  Their yarn selection is super good.  Almost yarn store good.

Oldladygrady, You're right, I'm pretty proud that I'm not the type of person to use the car to run out for milk at the store on the corner.  But it would be nice not to be so scared of traffic so that I could drive myself into Scottsdale or whatever.  I almost failed driver's training, and I've never been a very good driver, so I just don't trust myself on these expressways and such.  Anyway, our house is practically next to tons of businesses, including Craftmart, so it's convienent to use my bike and not far to ride at all.  It's good to get lots of use out of my bike, it's a fancy-schmancy cruiser and that's what I bought it for.

SewPixie, I'd eat to grow watermelons, thanks for the hope!  I have a little grass in my backyard, and it was yellow and crunchy by the time we moved in, but I'm watering it a little every night and I think it's coming back.

The other night there was a tiny-very-fast-moving lizard in my kitchen!  I eat nature and all, but my kitchen!  I made Ben take it outside for me.  There's also a huge nasty looking beetle-type bug living in the pool.  It's always on the tile on the side of the pool or floating around on that clorine releaser thing like it's a raft.  I think the chemicals are going to turn it huge and one day it'll knock on the door and ask me to bring it a sandwich.  It's got wavy antenna and grosses me out.

Okay, that's enough of me raving about the wildlife.  I just gross out easily.   Smiley

Thanks all you guys for talking to me about all this stuff, it's made it easier to move here knowing I can look to Craftsters for advice on the area and stuff.

Don't feel bad about not liking the traffic much. I didn't even get my license until last Fall and I'm 28! I'm terrified to drive and carpool or take the bus/walk.  Sad  I went out on my own once further than a mile and wound up bumping a gas pump. No more manual transmission for me thankyouverymuch.

The bus system isn't super great in Chandler but not too shabby and it's great in Tempe and such so if you don't mind the time it takes and don't want to drive I'd check out the bus schedules online. I often use my bus time as craft time. And they have bike racks on the front.

Maybe this winter you can knit the bug out back a little sweater. Wink

I've got a fancy shmancy cruiser too.  It even has a bell that says "i eat my bike" on it.  Now, I just have to figure out how to ship it to Rochester.

Boo, thanks for the advice, I'd eat to get to take some classes, I'm working out plans for the fall, I think.

Rickrackruby, thanks for asking!  Things are well with me and my husband.  I've gotten everything unpacked and my sewing room is set up all neat and clean.  I haven't gotten into any sewing projects yet because I've been crocheting like crazy for Christmas presents. 

I've gotten a job in the framing section of the Craftmart, and I like it a lot, though I'm trying to get to my ultimate goal of teaching craft classes instead.  I'm thinking of teaching a tatting class there after the new year.  I need to find out if there'd be enough interest in tatting for them to want to have a class on it.  I'd really like to teach because my new work schedule seems to encroach on my crafting, not to mention the dishes are never done now, lol.

I'm liking the weather now, but I think I'll miss the snow a little for Christmas time.  Oh well, I'll get to go to MI and visit the bad weather for two weeks in December.  I'm really looking forward to that, as I've been kind of homesick in the last couple of weeks.

Anyway, I'm settling in here I guess, and I'm really appreciative of the advice and support all you guys have given me!

My fiance is an aspiring knitter but has put it on hold to finish her college work. I see that most of the fun stuff is happening in Phoeniz and north of that. Is Tucson exciting at all as far as crafts are concerned? I'm a bookbinder/wood worker and my fiance loves paper and 3D dolls, are we going to have to travel far to get supplies?

Thanks!

i'm probably biased, but phoenix seems to have the most of everything rolled into one. other towns/cities may have certain stores that are even better than the ones in phoenix, but phoenix will be the place that has stuff for all of your different needs. then again, i've only lived in the vicinity of phoenix...so what do i know.

Hey, I just moved to PHX (Ahwatukee...) two months ago, and not to knock my old town, but the crafting scene is definately a little bit better here. Aside from a craft store employee attempting to persuade me that a product I'd bought there a few days ago they'd never carried, it's cooler. I didn't know anyone who did anything crafty in TX (they're out there, just not in Plano I guess...) but since I've been here I've met a lot of people at my school who embroider etc.
This thread is definately a big help  Smiley
