I always feel so alone on these forums ... out in the middle of south dakota ... but, if I'm not alone, please say HELLO ... really loudly b/c I might just hear you!

I'm in central SD in Chamberlain. Would love to hear from fellow SD'ers ... and border states, too (NE, MN, NE, ND, IA, MT, CO). Smiley

I grew up in SoDak and my family still lives there (parents  and others in SF, brother in Madison), but I live in Washington, DC now and have for going on 20 years (ack!).  I couldn't imagine living back home, but I still get homesick.  My husband and I drove across the state last summer (family reunion in the Hills) and it was a great reminder of what a remarkable place it is.  Hope you're able to connect with other crafty folks back home, but if you can't find anyone in the offline world, at least you've got all of us in the online world!

Take care,

I'm from Chadron, Nebraska. 'Bout 100 miles away from Rapid City, SD, if you know where that is. It's in the southwest corner. I go to Rapid often and have tried to find good thrift stores there, but the ones I've found are kinda... skanky? Anyway, I feel your pain. I feel quite alone (even though there are NEers on the board) because I'm far, far away from Lincoln/Omaha.   Sad

Hi, I'm from Sturgis but have family in Huron so we travel across the state several times a year.  We haunt all of the antique shops and thrift shops.  We usually stop at the Old West Trading post in Chamberlain.  Rapid City and Belle Fourche have a lot of anitque shops.  I sometimes find vintage stuff  like patterns, buttons etc. at the antique shops. Hey, Chamberlain, where do you shop?

I'm sorta a South Dakotan...I got to USD, but I'm actually from Crofton/Fordyce, NE.  (About 20 min from Yankton.)  It's so sad that those of us who are on here are from ALL parts of the state(s)...not close to each other, at all.  If you're ever in SF, they've got a great new yarn store (though I might be biased...my friends own it), and a SnB that meets Tuesday night at Barnes and Noble.  Give me a holler if you ever come down  Grin

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

hey, I just joined today and I'm from Vermillion too (originally from central SD)! I've been lurking here a while, but decided to jump in today.

Even though we have a Walmart opening soon, it sucks living here because we have to go out of town to find any good craft supplies (not that walmart will help that much). I drove all over SF last weekend trying to find Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool. Finally another shopper in Michael's helped me (after the teenage boy working there tried to tell me that they only carried Lion Boucle yarn--no offense to teenage boys out there) and I found it at Hancock Fabrics.

Have you been to the yarn stores in SF?  There's Yarn Knit downtown, and Athena's Fibers down near Minnesota (sorta/not really...that's just the best description I can do right now).

We have a Stitch n Bitch that meets up Saturday mornings at the Coffee Shop Gallery downtown; you should join us sometime!  We just met today; the next "meeting" is Dec. 17th.  (And I think the first one January is the 7th.)  You should PM me!

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

Howdy! I'm from northern Minnesota, Park Rapids, about 100 miles east of Fargo.
