LA Quilt Shops Part 2: The Urban Craft Center

February 23, 2012

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!
