Ok we're all moved now and I'm needing to find a place to get my old Singer sewing machine serviced, can anybody recommend someone in Hutch, McPherson or Newton - I suppose I could take it to Wichita but I'd rather not. The machine needs some parts replaced and a good cleaning - I'd appreciate a recommendation, thanks!

We are crafty in Lawrence. Join us. Message me to find out when and where.

I work in Olathe and my husband goes to school in Lawrence.  I discovered a little quilting supply store in downtown Eudora, but have never been inside.  There is also a quilting supply store in Olathe.  For thrift stores, there's a huge Salvation Army store in Olathe, as well as a good-sized Goodwill store, which is next door to a Hobby Lobby.

Good sewing machine store in Overland Park, on 87th across from the Central Library (also 888 Asian Market is right there)

I am in south Johnson County and just found this site today.  I love to craft, shop, swap, share, etc.[/color]

I just moved to Junction City from Wichita about a week ago. Is there anything in JC that's not Walmart, or do I have to go all the way to Manhattan or KC to find anything good?

Edited to add: For those of you living in Wichita, check out The Yard. It's on West Central between Washington and Hydraulic on the south side of the street, and they're completely awesome. Even though it's more like a hardware store, you can find all sorts of stuff for cheap. They've got everything from upholstry leather to seatbelt webbing, chains, mattress foam, D-rings... just all sorts of neat stuff. It's all super cheap, and its a ton of fun just looking around.

Oh hai pandaknickers!  I live in Herington, 30 miles outside JC, but I lived in Ogden and Manhattan before.  Right now I go to K State, so I am in mahattan every day.  So yeah, JC pretty much sucks for crafty stuff.  All the good stuff is in Manhattan.  There's a hobby lobby and a Joann's in Manhattan, and the grand ol trunk thrift shop there has a crafty section.

I'm in Solomon, and I go to Salina for Yarns Sold&Told, Hobby Lobby, ALL the thrift stores, Oddballs Flea Market (4th and Walnut) and Then&Now On Crawford.  I go to Abilene for The Shivering Sheep (yarn shoppe name WIN) and all the antique malls.  Also, Banke's Drugs always has some cheap junk jewelry that I break up for the beads, etc.

"see, if we all thought the same way, we'd all have the same ideas.  it's a good thing to be different.  but minowis...what ARE you doing with that?"

CHOWI!!  I'm swapping again!

Hutchinson  Kansas has a really good  knit shop on 14 e 15 right on the corner on the right side.  Yarn  I believe is what it's called.  Almost any  Etcetera (thrift) shops have interesting vintage yarns and fabrics. 

Twist in wichita in the deleno district it is by Jack's Hat Shop is a really good store. Men and women love to hang out and knit and crochet there. Some people even spin. Their big days are wed thurs and saturdays.

These are two of the best yarn shops in my area. Though I do tend to visit The Beadery as well as it is walking distance and they have beautiful beads as well as beautiful yarn.

I almost forgot about the button hole in mcpherson is gone, however in Hutchinson on the main business street on the corner of 4th or 2nd, it looks like the same business just smaller square footage.
