Definitely please check out Crafty & Company in Dowtown Lawrence (918 Massachusetts). We're full of Crafty ideas and opinions and love to talk in detail about projects with everybody.

For me, this is a shameless self-promotion for the shop. I'm the owner and have put my heart and soul into making this place work. It's so amazingly fun to own, work in, and be a part of this Crafty community I can hardly stand it. We opened up last September 7 and are planning our first anniversary celebration.

Please come in. Spend time on one of our couches. Let us get to know you. Make a project while you're here. Let us demonstrate how to use a bead loom, Knifty Knitter, or Print Gocco. Take a workshop on Henna Art or basic sewing techniques. Discover the power of Teriffically Tacky Tape or Weldbond. Show us your most recent project or let us help you figure out a solution or set you on the course to your next obsession.

If you can't get to the shop right away, visit www.craftyandcompany.com and see our shop online.

Yours in Crafty-ness,

I do recommend your store to everyone now that I've been there. I've *never* met more helpful and genuinely friendly staff anywhere. U R 2 cool 2 B 4-gotten.  Kiss

I know that this probably is of no help at all, but we have a Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart, Good Will, Salvation Army, and a nice little Fabrique Shoppe here in Dodge City.  But still, it's pretty darn slim pickins.

Hello, fellow Kansans.
I am still a newbie on this site, but I just posted a couple of things on the Missouri section of this "city guides" area; sort of a "scouting report" for the Kansas City area. 

I live in Prairie Village (Kansas City suburb) and find awesome stuff at Paper Source on the Plaza (my nirvana) and Urban Arts + Crafts in the River Market (north of downtown KC, MO).  Cool vintage/thrift/second hand stores in the K.C. area include:  Boomerang (mostly clothing, some housewares) on 39th St. in KCMO, Urban Mining Co. (not to be confused with Urban Arts + Crafts)...check my posting in the Missouri section to get a description of UMC and some of their classes; Re-runs (I think?) in Westport for high-quality vintage clothing and amazing vintage jewelry, handbags, and hats; and Mission Road Antiques, which includes everything from super high-end imported antiques to kitschy vintage Christmas decorations.  Mission Road Antiques is in Prairie Village/Corinth area, 83rd and Mission Road.

Hope this helps.

Sigh...any craftsters near great bend?

I live 3 hours from lawrence but my boyfriend lives there and I have to say I LOVE the Yarn Barn...even though saying the name makes me feel even more midwestern...lol

I haven't actually been in crafty and co... it actually looked a little too..."cleancut" for me...I don't know I guess it was just intimidating... yeah I'm weird...I like cluttered stores with stuf everywhere...

but now I think I will have to go!

heh..nobody in Kansas crafts because we all flee to California!  Wink

Seriously, I miss Wichita shopping so much, because they had both Michaels and Hobby Lobby.  Here all we have is Michaels, and with the lack of competition the supplies are scarce and the prices high.  Do check out Lawrence, the only cool place in all of Kansas IMO.  KC has a few craft stores, seems like I actually remember a huge Michaels on the Kansas side and there used to be Lee something or other, I believe they were originally knitting and the like, can't recall the name for sure...and it's been years so they could be gone.  JoAnn Fabric stores and Hancocks are both in various KS cities, they are a fairly good source for many things, and then of course, the internet makes everything available.   cherrytreetoys.com has a lot of wood pieces, stains, glues, etc., and there a several good links on the craftster homepage.  Also, if you just google 'craft supplies' or specific items you are looking for, you would be amazed at the sources you'll uncover.


if you can't lie no better than that......you might as well tell the truth.

Hi there!  I'm in Lawrence.  However, with my husband in school and us expecting our third child, I don't get downtown much.  It's good for the heart and soul, but terrible for the pocketbook.  The Salvation Army store closed a little while ago, so I make do with Michael's mostly.  I try to recycle a lot of things like the bit of decorations from Christmas that people don't want anymore, junk mail things, and my church has a give and take table that often has fun crafty items.  There is also Freecycle if you're quick on the draw and don't mind driving all over creation to secure your find.

We are a sad group that live in Kansas  Embarrassed  Glad to know there are some fellow craftsters! I was beginning to think I was the only one!
