Got Craft? Blog

i heart PDX

Well its over all ready...it seems like only yesterday we were sitting at the border waiting, waiting, waiting and more waiting.

Crafty Wonderland- Amazing if you like crafts... go see it. It is held at the Doug Fir Lounge which is super cool and there is an old apartment that has been redone to create the Jupiter Hotel next door and being venue buffs, we loved it! Sorry for the absent pictures, but the show was in a lounge so it was dark and I was too caught up looking at things!

Hawthorne Street- what an amazing place! We spent something like 3 or 4 hours wandering this place. It all started with a stop for coffee and crossiant at the Grand Central Bakery which is our new favourite place. We planned on a stopping at a fabric store near here after wandering the area, but we ended getting sucked into this super awesome second hand store. By the time we got out and over to the fabric store, it was 3:58 and the store closed at 4pm. Anyways, the second hand store was huge and it kept going and going and going. The warehouse (although it looks like a small shop from outside) is divided into sections and sellers may rent out a portion, place their goods and price them how they wish. There is also a PHO restaurant here and the price was actually quite reasonable. Of course, I can't forget Cool Cottons which is one of the best fabric stores that I have found! Huge selection of designer fabrics that I have not been able to find anywhere else.. at least.. physically and not having to pay shipping.



Cool Cottons This is a pic of my haul (or at least part of it!). Portland is full of these old houses that hold businesses. Of course, I can't forget Cool Cottons which is one of the best fabric stores that I have found! Huge selection of designer fabrics that I have not been able to find anywhere else.. at least.. physically and not having to pay shipping. I am hitting up Knitten Kitten and Bolt today before we leave!!! So excited.



There is so much more, but its time to go.
