I like the store in the University Center, and Quilt Tree isn't that far from there.
My favorite "craft" store in town will always be Black Elk Beads though. No fabric, but if you ever need leather, beads, buttons, or stuff you never knew you needed until you saw it there, that's the place.
Yeah, the quilting specialty stores are pricier, but you get a lot more selection of cotton patterns, so I guess it really depends on what you are looking for, plus the quilt stores also carry more glass and art type buttons. Another great place for glass buttons in singles is the yarn store by Bosco's in Spenard. I don't get there often though because Knitting Grounds is only about a mile away from where I live.

I don't mind paying a bit more at quilting stores. I frequented a few at home and could always find something I liked at them! Plus, the quality of more expensive fabrics (even just cottons like I use) seems to be much better. At JoAnn, it was kind of hit or miss and they often carried the same fabrics forever and it frayed like there was no tomorrow. I'll check out Quilt Tree!

Where did you get your tattoo done at? I've been trying to find a good place. Smiley

I don't live in Alaska but I visit about every other year. My dad lives in Anchorage, and that's where I got my tattoo. Smiley  I wish I could remember the name of the shop I got it done at, but if I remember correctly it's on Seward.  It's hard to miss, their sign is a giant tattoo gun.  They didi a great job on my tatoo, and the lady that did it was so super nice!  The only thing I didn't like is that when I went in to pick out my tattoo, they wouldn't let my daughter come in.  No minors allowed even if acompanied by an adult.  But my tatoo was so totally worth it! Cheesy  One of these times I'm going to go back and get another one.

No idea why I never thought to look here and post before, but here I am, at last.

So glad to see there really are others here in Alaska - and even in the Valley - that are on Craftster!! My sister in Washington told me about it and of course I am hooked now.

Ended up meeting a fellow craftster today actually at a mom's club meeting in Wasilla.

I would love to do some craft related get togethers sometime. I am mostly a papercrafter and scrapbooker but I also cross-stitch, can do basic sewing, mosaics, a tiny bit of crochet, basics of stained glass and would love to learn just about any other craft you can imagine.  Smiley

Has anyone seen any classes offered around for Native Arts like caribou tufting, basket weaving, fur sewing, or anything along those lines?

I keep looking, but so far keep coming up with nothing.  Sad 

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Hi I know this is an old thread but I thought I'd post this anyway in case anyone is looking for a group.
I just started a crochet and knitting group for parents with young kiddos. it's list on ravelry.com and on facebook.com

it's called Through The Loops

This is a group for parents in Anchorage Ak to get together to knit, crochet, loom knit or finger knit just for fun. Drink some coffee and work some loops, whether theyre crocheted or knitted is up to you.

We will be meeting:
~Wednesday mornings from 10 am- noon at Arctic Playgroundz
The kids will have a blast playing dress-up, driving cars, cooking in the the houses and the indoor slide is always a hit! They have great coffee and tea and snacks for the kiddos. Come show us your latest completed projects and what you are working on now.

~once a month we will meet at Starbucks WITHOUT KIDS at 6:30 pm- 8:30 pm.
Bring you latest project and questions.

during the summer we can add another day to meet at a park, while the kids play we can knit or crochet.

I didn't dig through all 18 pages to see if I had replied to this a few years ago, but, I am here too!!  I live in Palmer.  I sew, knit, crochet, bead, play a bit in everything, stamping, clay, painting, etc.  I would love to start a group or craft n bitch type thing.  I have a lot of supplies but I need inspiration and direction and motivation sometimes!  Anyone else looking to meet up or get a group of sorts going in the Valley?  Maybe we could make a co-op type thing and do craft fairs/friday flings, etc.  My schedule is every other weekend, so that doesn't always work for me, as a night nurse... but alas I am rambling... hope to hear from you Alaskan crafters soon!
