ok - i just moved to dc also, and though i still dont have much dc crafty info, i just wanted to say hi!

by the way, there is a michael's in arlington behind the target on route 50.  just take 14th street towards va and get off at the crystal city exit, which will be on the left.  

i'd love to hear what you find!

oh.  its just me.

where is the michael's??  I only know of the target on route 1 in alexandria down by that big movie theater.  

I have searched around for interesting classes, etc.. There are art classes at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town, and some other arty classes offered by the Smithstonian's campus on the mall.... They offer a beading class.  Other beading things sold at Beadazzled in Dupont circle.  I also like the big art stor on M street in Georgetown. I bouthg some wood frames there to paint.  I also like the hardware store on 14th & P (Logan Hardware).  I live near dupont and dont have a car, so I try to go places to which I can either walk or metro.  The Container store in Arlington near Clarendon has some things I think could be used to make cool stuff with as well.

oops i was wrong about where the michaels is, but now i know where it really is!  i suppose its hard to get to if you dont have a car, but if you have a chance it is in falls church.  what you have to do is take m street all the way through georgetown and then make a left onto the key bridge.  take that road into virginia and then you will see signs for 50 west - take 50 west.  go about 5-7 miles (im not too good with distances, so i hope that is right!) and then you will need to make a left onto patrick henry boulevard.  if you make a quick right after that turn you will be in a parking lot for g street fabrics and home depot.  across the street you will see michaels and joannas fabrics.  i havent been to g street fabrics yet, but i hear its great!  

by the way, logan hardware is the best!  i live right around the corner from that place and they are so helpful there.  i love it!

oh.  its just me.

Another craft store in the area is AC Moore, which is at the intersection of Columbia Pike and Rte. 7 (it actually faces Rte. 7). It's not Metro accessible though. From the Michaels mentioned above, make a left on Rte. 7 and AC Moore will be on your left--I don't remember how many traffic lights you go through.

In the city, you can try Plaza Art, on 20th Street between Eye and K Streets. If you sign up for their savings card you get a discount on your purchases.

I was just at the Michaels in 7 Corners today because I wanted to purchase some yarn and a pom pom maker.  I was disappointed though as I could not find any of those bracelet forms there.  Michaels had some blank forms for earrings but I was hoping to make a marble bracelet.  Do any of you know where I can find those forms in the area??  thanks

For people in Washington DC interested in making the record purses and record bowls, I went to the CD Exchange today in Tenleytown (on Wissonsin right off of the Tenley metro) and they had records for under $1.00 -- in fact, they had some for even .10 cents!!.  They didn't have the best selection, but to make a record bowl for ten cents -- hey that can't be beat!

I just wanted to let the DC area people know that I just bought some Armour Etch glass etching cream at "The Art Store" in Georgetown.  I was really excited to find it so that I can begin making some quick x-mas presents

On a thursday or friday, check out the Washington Post's Classified section for Estate Sales (the best ones are usually by a company called Four Sales). I usually pick up some GREAT stuff...especially in Arlington.

Also there's a favorite thrift store that my mom and I have...it's called Sister's Thirft and Consigment and it's in Falls Church (can't remember exactly where, but I'm sure the yellow pages has info...). They always have a range of very usable items!
