With the death of Lewiscraft, may it live on in our hearts, it seems there are no more "small" craft stores in town. There are sewing supply stores and art supply stores, but nowhere with the same variety Lewiscraft would get in. Well, aside from Michaels. Does anyone know any cool small shops in town? I've heard Art Placement before, but I was under the impression it was just art supplies..?

It really all depends on what kind of craft supply you are looking for.  If you want wools, there is the Wool Imporium on 8th st.  Or Periwinkles is on 8th st for fabric, doll/bear joints, quiliting.  They even have some fibers for doll hair, or hair for polymer clay figures.  If you want stuff for painting there is always Colours, that is right down town next to Fandango.  Let me know what kind of stuff you are looking for, and I'll let you know if I find anything that relates to it. 
Hope this helps. Smiley

Colours is lovely, I've been there before. I haven't been to periwinkles though, just fabricland. Really what I love the most are oddball supplies, like really interesting pieces of lace for chokers, beading supplies and weird shit like they have at the bead hive (I love that place, though the stuff I want is usually the most expensive stuff there.) Anything for sculpting or origami.. I don't think anywhere here sells origami paper. They have kits at Mcnally Robinson, but that's it. Good places for making stuff from found objects, like the kinds of things you see used in steampunk props and whatnot, would also be cool. It's too bad the antique mall I used to visit here is gone now.. it always had weird things to look at.

Dollarama actually sells origami paper.  I think there is about 80 sheets in a pack for a dollar.  My daughter loves it.  A good place to find odd ball things for steampunk is actually Princess Auto as funny as that sounds.  I walk down every isle and find at least 6 things that I want to make....too bad I don't have more time in a day.  They have things that only a mechanic or a crafter would appreciate.  Grin
