I go to SUNY binghamton, and was wondering if any other craftsters went here, or if they live in this area. The closest Joann's is FAR from campus, LOL.

I used to go to SUNY Bing, from fall '02 till fall '03.  It's pretty desolate, for anything at all.  The only three places I can think of right now are Salvation Army (it's HUUUUUGE and they have half off days), AC Moore and Wal-Mart.  I don't remember where Salvo is exactly, but you can google it for the address.  AC Moore is in the Wal-Mart shopping center, oh and so is Loews Hardware.  Hope that helps.  Oh, and there are dollar stores galore there too.

     I'm a former SUNY B student and currently live just across the river from the campus. 
     In addition to the places ikillbarbies pointed out, there's also a Michaels in the next plaza (called "The Shoppes at Vestal") down from the Walmart/AC Moore plaza (called "The Town Square Mall").  I know that the OCC and Broome County busses stop at the Town Square Mall, so it's just a quick walk around the back of Wallmart and across the street to get to the plaza with Michaels.
     There are a few yarn stores and fabric stores around, but none that I know of close to a bus stop.
     I'm not at all fond of the local Salvation Army locations (one in Binghamton just off upper Court St. and one in Endicott just off Main St, near K-Mart).  They's both large, but I find that the prices are a bit too high on clothing and most anything else of use has been picked off before the merchandise has hit the floor, but YMMV.
     Sort-of related: If you like art, you've GOT to check out the First Friday Art Walks in downtown Binghamton.  They're the first Friday of every month and run from 6-9 pm.  A whole slew of galleries open their doors, everything's free to see, and there are great snacks and some places have wine.  It's a lot of fun,  I go every month.  Definitely check out Jungle Science (2nd floor, near Subway on Main St.), there's always something new up there, and the hancrafted leather masks by E.L. Downey just HAVE to be seen.
     I hope this was coherent!  Feel free to PM me with specific comments or questions, I'd love to help if I can.

I don't go to BU, but I'm a senior at an area high school. I, too wish I lived closer to Jo Ann's, even though it's still a pretty lame store.

oh baby, Lilly munster ain't got nothing on you.

To any recent swap partners: I apologize immensely for slacking. I got completely bogged down in a lot of different things and decided to just flake out on my Craftster responsibilities instead of fixing my mistakes. I'm so sorry.

I go to Binghamton!
In addition to all the stuff that's been mentioned, there's actually a decently awesome bead store on Vestal Parkway. It's really far down (by Made in Japan and the Vestal Museum, if either of those ring a bell), so you can't really get there without a car. I, bychance, have a car this year and am always willing to help out a Craftster in need! Tongue

i go to suny bing!  Grin i usually stay away from big stores, & stick with mom & pop stores. especially now that the economy is soo bad, people should really start supporting them in their time of need!

head to antique stores, or salvation army for fabric! they have curtains you can get (look for half price day) or just big xxxxL t shirts!

maybe ill see you around campus!
