Neighborhood Creative.

Walking your dogs around a small town has it’s benefits.

Tonight Chris and I were walking Rex & Maggie and I remembered that I needed a little bit of black ribbon to complete one of my current crafts, and out-of-the-blue, I decided to stop in to one of my town’s local sewing stores.

Just Make It Sew is a charming, well-stocked sewing and notions store located on the main street through my town.  And yes, as  you can tell by the photo, I do live in one of those adorable, picturesque, “oh-honey-wouldn’t-it-be-nice-to-live-here” towns. 

JoAnn, the shop owner, was more than willing to accomodate my need for some “quarter inch black ribbon” as she dug through a box in the back of her store.  She sold me the ribbon for a great price and while we were talking, I glanced around her store and realized that I don’t shop my main street vendors as often as I should.  And that my hometown main street can probably meet many of my creative needs.  Best of all, Just Make It Sew offers classes, too – so even if you’re not well-versed in the art of sewing, you can be.  It’s a great store.

Thanks to JoAnn and her shop, I was able to finish a craft without handing over my money to yet another big box store.  And that is what “neighborhood creative” is all about.

  1. Totally making sure I’m checking back in to see your storage and organization post Andrea! And that fabric store looks gorgeous – my main street is kind of like the Australian version of the ‘Aw-I’d-love-to-live-here’ and although we have fabric (mainly quilting) stores aplenty, my local scrapbook store closed down 😦

    • The craft room re-do post is due out very soon – I just need 2 more pictures and I’ll be set. Today I have to finish some lovely tax prep tasks for my hubby and then I can get back to the work I love best… Thank you for checking in!
