So, I'd like to second the mention of the new Cherokee street beading store.  The owner is a lovely woman, and extremely willing to help out with whatever!
Also, I'd like to mention The whole nine yarns which is on e main street in Woodstock.   It is fabulously stocked with lots of yarns and a great supply of spinning stuff.  The lady there mentioned lots of classes and stuff they do.  She was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. 
I'm searching for a jewelry supply store, so anyone have any ideas?  I'm a KSU student, located on south loop in Marietta, so I've got some leeway as to traveling distance.

Had to update that the Discount Fabrics has been demolished.  They paved fabrice paradise to put up a parking lot, so to speak . . .

No boutique, or swingin hot spot?  *sigh* you don't know what you got till it's gone...Okay, done with that now  GrinI'm from the wonderful (awful, insanely crafter-UNfriendly) Paulding County.  I can't think of anything at all out my way.  There's a Michaels...no fabric.  Wal-Mart?  They're taking out the craft sections. *sigh again*

Yeah I live in Paulding County too... it sucks. there's a Michael's in Hiram. I think there might be a Hobby Lobby too... I know there's one in Marietta, which isn't terribly far (I'm in Dallas). I usually go to Douglasville for all my crafty needs :p

What kind of crafts do you do?

Hi y'all,

I live ITP and am looking for other places to find supplies besides ye olde Michaels and Joanns, Hobby Lobby, etc.

My main thing is paper crafting and the nearest indie stamp store is in Marietta. 

I just got a sewing machine so am interested in good places to find fabric other than Walmart or Hancock.  Also I'm very interested in learning to knit and crochet and would love any tips on yarn stores that offer classes.

I <heart> paper crafts!  PM me about private swaps...

Hey all! I had no idea there were so many crafties in Atl! I'm up in Woodstock, and I just wanted to add that we have an awesome yarn shop up here.


I usually shop Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's and (rarely) Michael's. There's a new bead shop (A & J Beads) in Kennesaw, too. I used to drive to Buckhead for beads, but they have some nice things (and cheap classes!) at A&J.

Decatur has Intown Quilters which has wonderful cotton fabrics
Knitch is in Midtown (Virginia-Highlands) and has knitting and crochet stuff.  I think every yard store has classes.
Sabra gallery in East Atlanta has been having all kinds of classes recently too but I'm sure of price.

Other than those two, its michaels or Joann's and a nice long drive.

In the Decatur area:

Bazillions of Beads by Shoshanna
(404) 329-1988
620 Medlock Rd
Decatur, GA 30033
This is at the intersection of North Decatur, Scott and Medlock; in the same shopping center as Melton's App & Tap, around the corner in between the Natural Buzz Salon and the Woodshed.  Hard to find but worth it.

Amalgam Arts
3172 E Ponce de Leon Ave.
Scottdale, GA 30079
p: (404) 371 8922
I pass this every day on my way to the MARTA station, but have never stopped to look in.  Looks like they have classes in jewelry making, woodworking and other things in addition to art & crafts for sale.

Discount Fabric store on the South Marietta Parkway, across from the CCT bus stop, just opened.  Huge reams of upholstery fabric, which I tend to view as a suggestion rather than a mandate.  They also have regular clothing style of fabric, and some odds and ends.  Most of the bolts were 60" or wider, which is a huge plus!
