Cre8iveCrafter’s Master List of local PORTLAND (and surrounding areas) stores - SORTED BY AREA

New to rubber stamping, scrapbooking, papercrafting, cardmaking or collage???
You should take a day trip in and around Portland, Oregon and see many of the stores with samples, classes, supplies, friendly people and lots of eye candy for your creative soul!

*note: this is by no means a complete list of every store in the area... just the ones I find myself going back to over and over. (example: Joann’s has several smaller stores that I did not list.) Keep in mind that new stores are always opening and unfortunately, some of the best ones end up closing :-( As of this writing, these are all open. I hope this helps you find your own favorite cre8ive spots!

If you have any trouble getting around…
I highly recommend GOOGLE MAPS It is basically www.google.com then choose the Maps link. Paste the address in the blank box and hit the 'Search Maps' button. Then you can switch back and forth between (street) map view and satellite view … or view a combination of the 2! (very useful for seeing landmarks to use with your directions!)

Buckle you seatbelt and let's go...

Go to the website and click on the link of the city event you would like to attend. You can see a list of the vendors that will be selling at that particular show, get on the mailing list and sign up for any classes. You can buy tickets online (up to a point) then you have to get them at the door.

Art and Soul Retreat, September 30 - October 5, 2009
It would take me an entire BOOK to describe the beauty, the talent, the opportunities and the fabulous memories of this event. There is NOTHING like it. It is unique. It is second to NONE. Only the BEST teachers from all around the world are hired to come to Portland annually for one week only. You cannot put this experience into mere words. It HAS TO BE FELT and SEEN for yourself. Come for just one class to start. You will never want to miss another one again! You can see all Class listings, class samples and teach bios at the website listed below.

There is also a special VENDOR FAIRE every year on Saturday evening. You do NOT have to attend any classes in order to shop at the vendor faire. It is highly recommended that you visit this and see some of the incredible artwork from the teachers on display and for sale as well as one of a kind items you could only find if you traveled the world just to hunt down goodies at local flee markets and estate sales. Of course there are also several vendors with wonderful manufactured items to use in your scrapbooks, mini albums, jewelry, metalsmithing, book making, collage, card making, sewing, ribbon art, painting, drawing, coloring, rubber stamping, etc… the list goes on.

*NOTE:
Registration begins on March 15th online at http://www.artandsoulretreat.com and the classes sell out FAST
(I am NOT kidding – many go within minutes!)

Held at:
Embassy Suites Portland -- Airport
7900 NE 82nd Ave.
Portland, OR 97220
