Hey grrls (and guys).  My name's Laura, and I am brand-spanking new to this site.  I'm from Auburn, a college student/photographer/artist/brand-new knitter there.  It's good to see other crafty people from Bama!

 Roll Eyes Happy New Year!

It's sad how dead this section of the board is, isn't it?

I'm from near Auburn (Tallassee) -- but going to school in Mobile (USA).  A belated "welcome" to the boards, and hello to a fellow Alabamian!

So what is the craft scene like in Auburn? I may be moving there. Anything to speak of or is it limited to Michaels? Or do you have to go to Montgomery for everything?

I live in Fairhope Alabama. Lived in Auburn, in the 80's and I'm also from Pensacola. I'm an avid knitter, painter, sewer, etc., but knitting is my true passion

hahaha.  craft scene in Auburn.  it's a hilarious but sad joke!  Cry

if you want some crafting materials, wal-mart's the scene.  even the three thrift shops here don't have much crafty stuff; definately not much yarn, but sometimes some decent sheets and things that you can use as material.  sorry to be a bummer!  i'm moving to St. Louis after Christmas, which is when I graduate, but if you get here before let me know!   Smiley

and hello stephanie!   Cheesy

I'm not a newbie to Crafster but to Auburn. Moved here in August 07.  You are correct in that there's not much commercial support for crafting (i.e., lack of stores) but there is a good yarn shop in Opelika (if you can dismiss the owner) and the new hobby lobby rocks!

PM me if you are interested in joining a local crochet/knit group. We try to meet every week.

Hi!  I don't live in Auburn anymore (currently in Colorado) but graduated in '99  and we definitely didn't have anything craftier than J and M then!  I think it is cool that crafty people are uniting in War Eagle country!   Smiley
