After leaving Sew Modern in West LA, Stephanie, Kristin, and I made a quick drive to The Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica. A month or so ago Thomas and I were in Santa Monica, as we had tickets for Ovo. I had read about The Urban Craft Center online, and so we stopped in to take a look. I fell in love with the store, and thought it would be a hit with Stephanie and Kristin (lucky Kristin, she actually lives close enough to take their classes!).
One of my favorite things about The Urban Craft Center is that it is a one-stop shop for all of your crafting needs. They teach and embrace all sorts of crafts, which is such a wonderful outlook!
Stephanie and I surrounded by beautiful fabrics. The Urban Craft Center doesn't have a ton of fabric, but what they do have is great. They have a lot of Japanese fabrics, a couple Moda lines, and all of the Amy Butler fabrics were on sale!
The Urban Craft Center is big on classes, which I love! Saturday they were having a paper making class (pictured above). They offer knitting, sewing, embroidery, soap making, bookbinding, and Yudu Screen Printing classes (just to name a few!).
Last but not least, this is their yarn, felt, and book section. I wish I was a bit more handy with my crochet hooks, as they had yarns in such gorgeous colors!
PS- Can you believe that I've blogged three days in a row!?! Hopefully this becomes the norm...only time will tell!
