Today we wanted to talk a little more about places to shop and the community around us if you’re looking for things from buttons, to fabrics, patterns, and tools necessary to complete your next project. Here are just a few places we would say that could complete your shopping experience and their closet location around Blaine area:

JOANN FABRICS: Address: 12779 Riverdale Blvd, Coon Rapids, MN 55448.

They have a large selection of patches, zippers, and of course fabrics!

S.R. HARRIS: Address: 8865 Zealand Ave N, Brooklyn Park, MN 55445.

With 30,000 square feet of wholesale space SR Harris Fabric is for fabric enthusiast like a kid in a candy store. Come here and don’t be overwhelmed by the amount of things you’re looking for.

HANCOCK FABRICS: (All closing soon!) Address: 40 Coon Rapids Blvd NW, Coon Rapids, MN 55448.

With 185 stores left in the US Hancock Fabrics is sadly closing all its stores. Troubled since emerging from bankruptcy in 2008 Hancock has been a local favorite to many. The selection is not always large but the items they sold were certainly unique. From premade craft items, beads and rhinestones, jewelry go check out Hancock with their 20-50% off deals right now (4/20/2016)
