Whether a knitter or a sewer, a scrapbooker or a jewelry-maker, every crafty person needs a place to find supplies. These are the go-to places for doing just that, whether your crafting is a hobby or fills your Etsy profile.
Beads of all shapes, sizes, color, and material (including bone and metal) are on hand here -- your biggest problem will be narrowing down your selection!
A knitter's paradise -- and then some. Beginners are welcome, with regular workshops and a friendly staff.
In addition to classes and workshops, Gotta Knit holds regular trunk shows so you can ogle at the magic other people can make with a few skeins of yarn.
DIYers will be in heaven here, with more stamps and paper and inks than you could even imagine exist. A great option if you're looking to make personalized cards, unique scrapbook pages, or invitations that won't soon be forgotten.
The service may leave a bit to be desired, but the selection here is top-notch. Leave expectations for good treatment at the door, and focus on getting everything you need and things you didn't even know you wanted.
Another hot spot for the city's knitters, this Alphabet City shop offers classes, patterns, and yarns so pretty you'll be knitting presents for decades to come.
Stop by any time to get your creative juices flowing, but during the evenings the store offers free wine Wed-Sat from 6:30-10pm (which should help things along even more...).
