I visited a craft store in N.E. Minneapolis yesterday and I am in love! It's called Crafty Planet. From Sublime Stitching to fabric patterned with everything from gnomes, Mexican sugar skulls or amazing abstracts, this is not your grandmother's craft store (unless you have one of those awesomely hip grandmothers). And there's yarn too. Lots and lots of yummy, soft yarn. I saw a yarn there called Mini-Mochi and I can't wait to try some.
I'm also seriously looking forward to taking sewing classes there some day. I've been wanting to learn for awhile now.
Hooray for Crafty Planet!
