    For NYC crafters

    Hi there. I was hoping you would be so kind as to answer a few questions for me about where you get your craft supplies and such. I am planning a new space in Brooklyn just for you, so of course I'd like to cater it to your needs as much as possible. Thanks so much. If you feel so inclined to contact me directly through any of the websites below, please feel free.

    1. What types of crafts fo you enjoy?
    2. Where do you usually find the materials for these crafts?
    3. What materials do you have the most difficulty finding?
    4. Are you a member of any craft groups - if so, where does it usually meet?
    5. If you aren't a member of a group, would you like to join one in the future?
    6. Have you taken any crafting classes in the city, if so, where?
    7. What borough do you live in? Would you travel out of borough to buy materials, or participate in a class or crafting group?
    8. Do you have children? Is crafting something you do together?
    9. Do you find it difficult to do the projects you'd like to because your apartment is too small?

    1. What types of crafts to you enjoy?
    I guess it depends on your definition of "craft". I cook, paint, draw, and blow glass. As far as the painting and drawing goes, I do it for its own sake, but also to make something useful like stationary (for instance). I would get into wood working (with my partner) if we had the space and tools.

    2. Where do you usually find the materials for these crafts?
    Art supply stores and online.

    3. What materials do you have the most difficulty finding?
    None at this time.

    4. Are you a member of any craft groups - if so, where does it usually meet?
    No.

    5. If you aren't a member of a group, would you like to join one in the future?
    Interestingly enough, I would want to join a sewing group. I feel intimidated, though, as my skills are so limited.

    6. Have you taken any crafting classes in the city, if so, where?
    No.

    7. What borough do you live in? Would you travel out of borough to buy materials, or participate in a class or crafting group?
    I live in Brooklyn. I would like to think I would leave the borough, but I probably wouldn't. I guess it depends on what the class/group was all about.

    8. Do you have children? Is crafting something you do together?
    Not yet. But if/when I do have kids, I would like art and crafting to be a part of their lives.

    9. Do you find it difficult to do the projects you'd like to because your apartment is too small?
    YES YES and YES. The size of our apartment has really stifled my artistic aspirations.

    1. What types of crafts fo you enjoy?
    knitting, quilting, wheel-throwing

    2. Where do you usually find the materials for these crafts?
    various web sites, from eBay to knitpicks.com and purlsoho.com. occasionally city quilter in chelsea.

    3. What materials do you have the most difficulty finding?
    unusual, high-quality fabric—i.e., not just moda fabric w/ civil-war-era designs. i have an embarrassingly large stash of old feedsacks, but i want more beautiful solid-color, new cottons, but with a more luxurious feel than basic quilting cotton.

    4. Are you a member of any craft groups - if so, where does it usually meet?
    no

    5. If you aren't a member of a group, would you like to join one in the future?
    maybe

    6. Have you taken any crafting classes in the city, if so, where?
    yes, through makeworkshop.com

    7. What borough do you live in? Would you travel out of borough to buy materials, or participate in a class or crafting group?
    jersey city. i buy materials in the city, and would go into some parts of brooklyn, but not often.

    8. Do you have children? Is crafting something you do together?
    no

    9. Do you find it difficult to do the projects you'd like to because your apartment is too small?
    yes!
