I wasn't sure where exactly to put this...

My family is going to Indianapolis come Feb 27th-March 2nd and was curious if anyone knows of any craft stores in that city? (Or anything interesting...but my main concern is craft stores...mainly fabrics)  We've never been, but I haven't had time to really fish around due to college....and was curious if anyone could help me out?!  Tongue

Thanks a lot!

Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
And looking up I noticed I was late.
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
Somebody spoke and I went into a dream."

You might see if there is anything in the City Guides for Craftsters.  Browse thru some of those posts for Indiana.

I have to tell you that Indianapolis has a shameful selection of fabric shops for a city this size. Hancocks & JoAnn... same thing you'll find anyplace. There's a decent quilt fabric shop in Carmel if you can stand the bad additudes of the elderly women who work there. the closest "real" fabric shop would be Baer in Louisville... 2 hours away!

My mother works at that quilt shop in Carmel, and yes, some of the women are a little.. off, but it's a great shop. It's called Quilt Quarters. There's also a very nice quilt shop in the little shopping center across the street from North Central High School called Quilts Plus. There are also a fair amount of upholstery fabric shops near Castleton,  and I think one on the east side, but it may be closing. The big JoAnns is across the street from Castleton Square Mall, and is very close to a furniture store.

I just realized that I'm answering this way after you needed to know, but I feel that some specifics may help people in the future.
