The options in Bloomington for local art and craft supplies are slim and noteably Big Box, but Adrienne and Jake, local crafters, have something different in mind. They are opening Bloomington Craft Supplies on west Kirkwood just a few blocks from Bloomington's downtown business district, just across the street from Time Flies Antique Gallery at the end of 'arts row'. No longer will have you have to make the trek to the far east or far west side in Bloomington to find those craft goods your weekend (or lifetime) project desires. Now it's just a simple jaunt (a walk even) downtown to Bloomington Craft Supplies!
Bloomington Craft Supplies will celebrate its GRAND OPENING next Saturday, November 17 from 3-8pm at their downtown location. Expect snacks, crafting supplies, and lots of FUN!! They will offer needle arts, jewelry, sewing/quilting notions, wood crafts, basic art, kids crafts, paper crafts, mesh ribbon, clay, and various other craft supplies. They also hope to soon be carrying soap/candle making, metal, fabric, glass, printmaking, stamps, and everything else craft related!
