If there is any one in the central Iowa area that is interseted in a scrap night, PM me or check out my blog.

I know of an upcoming scrap night (usually every second Friday of the month) that is free of charge. It is a small gathering at a rural church that is open to the public.

I don't know if any of you are from the NW part of Iowa, but my mom was telling me about a sb store that opened up in Sgt. Bluff a couple of months ago. It's just south of Sioux City, I don't know the name of the store and unfortunately she doesn't scrapbook so I'll have to check it out the next time I visit.

Just a heads up

I was just wondering how the Transcendental Meditation people (group) has changed your town?

For people who don't know what I'm talking about here is a little info on them..........

SMITH CENTER, Kan. - Supporters of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi see his Transcendental Meditation movement as fostering world harmony. But in this farm town in the heart of the heartland, the movement‘s plans to build its “World Capital of Peace” here are creating more tension than tranquility.

“It hasn‘t split the community, but it has caused a lot of tension,” said Mayor Randy Archer. “We‘re an older community, and new things that come to town are scary for some people.”

Eric Michener, who works as project coordinator out of a storefront office on Main Street, conceded his group, the nonprofit Maharishi-affiliated Global Country of World Peace, probably could have made a better first impression.

Altogether, the Maharishi wants to build 2,400 peace palaces in 250 U.S. cities and has opened ones in Houston, Bethesda, Md., Lexington, Ky., and Fairfield, Iowa, where his group also has operated the Maharishi University of Management for three decades.

TM traces its roots to India. The movement began in the 1950s and is best known for its celebrity disciples, who have included Clint Eastwood and the comedian Andy Kaufman. Practitioners repeat a thought — a mantra — over and over to achieve relaxation, typically for 15 or 20 minutes every morning and evening. But Pastor Greg Hubbard of the Evangelical Free Church, countered, “They say they aren‘t a religion, and I say baloney.” In April, he and other pastors signed a letter to the local newspaper saying: “They are welcome, but they must understand we are competing for the eternal souls of people.”

Others in Smith Center — a dwindling town of 1,800 with an aging population — are withholding judgment.

Boyum held out the possibility of an economic boost for the town, where folks raise wheat, corn, soybeans and cattle about 175 miles from Topeka, near the Nebraska line: “Our intention is to funnel as much finances and work through the local community as we can. We all are consumers and will bring resources into the county.”

“They came in and, boom, here we are,” the mayor said. “People thought they were sneaking in.”

Recently, a dozen people showed up at Michener‘s office for a question-and-answer session. Some were curious about TM. Others were a little upset. They wanted to know why Michener didn‘t show up the night before for a public meeting, the usual means of hashing out problems around here.

Michener said there had been some miscommunication and his superiors had not authorized him to speak to a large gathering. He started using terms like “silent zero point.”

“It‘s just like they are pulling stories out of the sky,” farmer Mark Overmiller said after the meeting. “Baby, this will split this town wide open.”

Not everyone opposes the new neighbors. The Rev. Sharon Patton of the First Christian Church grew up near Fairfield, Iowa, and recalled the same concerns there when the Maharishi opened the university and supporters moved into town.

“Those who are secure in their faith aren‘t worried about these people coming,” she said. “We are going through the same thing as the folks in Fairfield and that passed. In time, it will die out.”

June 26, 2007
DES MOINES (AP) — A southeast Iowa city established six years ago by the followers of Transcendental Meditation guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is considering a plan to SEI ze a farmer’s land to prevent him from building a hog operation next to the city.

Maharishi Vedic City officials told farmer Bob Palm that they’d like to buy his 149-acre farm after they heard a few months ago about Palm’s plans to build a hog confinement operation on the land.

City officials drafted a proposal to buy the land and said if that plan fails, they expect to use eminent domain to force the sale of Palm’s land in the name of public improvement.

On Sunday, Maharishi Vedic City’s governing council decided to table a controversial vote on the property. The council could have chosen to take the first steps toward buying Palm’s farm.

City Attorney Maureen Wynne, who is the wife of Mayor Bob Wynne, said the proposal is about expansion and ideals.

“It would be a very difficult situation for the city if a hog confinement is built on its boundaries,” Wynne said.

She said a hog confinement operation would be a nuisance to the city that has declared itself all-organic and bans the sale of anything not grown organically.

An appraiser for the city valued Palm’s land at $2,675 per acre.

Palm, 57, remained steadfast in his refusal to sell.

“It’s everything to us,” Palm said about the farm on which he grows corn and soybeans with his brothers Lou and Ron.

Ron Palm said he and his brothers have dropped the idea of a hog confinement and they said city officials jumped the gun when they threatened to use eminent domain.

“About all we had done was research into a hog confinement,” Ron Palm said. He said the brothers also considered raising cattle or growing a vineyard.

The vote on the park plan will be delayed indefinitely while the city negotiates with the family and with Jefferson County officials.

Sunday’s meeting — held under a tent at Wynne’s house — drew about 200 people, said Jefferson County Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman ******** Reed, adding that most of them were against the proposed expansion.

“It’s a little shady,” Reed said. “When you have a local government talking about doing condemnation on a farm when they have excess land themselves is ludicrous. Being able to own land is one of the rights in this country.”

Wynne said adding a hog confinement to the town’s border would be akin to building a landfill.

The proposed park included in the city’s plan would include windmills, soccer fields, a swimming pool and a place to charge electric cars.

Considered a spiritual center of the Transcendental Meditation movement in the United States, the city of 420 practitioners of TM was incorporated in 2001. The city has designated Sanskrit, an ancient language of India, as its official language and adopted a new currency.

The meditating community has met with resistance and sometimes hostility from the farmers, residents and business owners of Fairfield, where Yogi and his TM organizations bought the defunct Parsons College campus in 1974.

In 2001, a group of the meditators decided to establish their own city a few miles north of Fairfield. Since its inception, Maharishi Vedic City has generated local controversy.

In April 2004, city officials hatched a plan to house 500 pandits, or special meditators, using city money. But Jefferson County residents opposed the plan on the grounds that the public money from a local-option sales tax would be used for a religious purpose.

The pandits made it to Maharishi Vedic City in the fall of 2006, but without the use of public money, Wynne said.

In 2005, the Jefferson County Board of Supervisors unanimously rejected the city’s request for help to get a $132,000 grant from the state’s Community Attractions and Tourism Fund to build a new visitors’ center and make improvements to an astronomical observatory.

Hello everyone! I'm new here and wanted to say hi!

I live in Des Moines and work in Ankeny. Does anyone attend crops at Memory Bound in Ankeny? I'm pretty new to scrabooking and would like to go to some crops but would probably enjoy it more if I knew someone else who was attending. I don't have any friends who scrapbook so would really enjoy getting to know others who do.

If anyone at all, loves to scrapbook, and live in the IL/WI/IA area, you have got to try my favorite place in the world to do that. Contact MaryKim at the Paper Dollhouse and spend a weekend of true pampering, gourmet food and just the coziest place in IL to scrapbook. You will be treated like royalty...you will NEVER want to leave and believe me you will keep coming back...over and over and over. I have been there 4 times now and plan on going every 5-6 months...It's a great place to escape for a weekend and hang out with our friends. Even if you don't scrapbook, it's a nice relaxing bed and breakfast that serves fantastic food.

I'm not an owner, just a loyal customer that wants to make sure that THE PAPER DOLL HOUSE stays open for years to come. We are losing too many of the great places to scrap. I want to continue to go there every 5-6 months for a very, very long time. IT'S MY HAPPY PLACE!

Just ask for MaryKim and tell her Tori sent you!

Where do you scrap in Bettendorf? I live in Dubuque (a half-mile above the river!), and now, not only did my favorite store in Dubuque close a couple years ago, and my favorite store in Coralville in November, but a week ago, my wonderfully favorite store in Madison closed. Now, short of driving to Chicago, I don't know where to go anymore. Ideas??

There is still a LSS in Moline, IL, right across the river from Davenport/Bettendorf. It's called Scrapbooking Studio and it's a great store. Pretty sure it's the only one left in the Quad City area.

There is a good store in Cedar Rapids: All About Pictures. Ankney has Memory Bound. Des Moines has Archivers. Davenport has Scrappaganza. Hobby Lobby has scrapbooking stuff as does Ben Franklin.

There are 3 scrapbook stores in the Charles City,IA area. The Stitchery Nook in Osage has a Scrapbooking section, Backroads Plum Crazy In Ionia, and RC on Main in Charles City. I think there's one in Mason City and Twin Oaks in Cedar Falls.

I'm in southern Iowa near Centerville. Anyone else in this neck of the woods?

I do go frequently to Des Moines which is only 2 hours away.

I have just recently started coming to this site and just saw this state specific thread! I noticed that there hasn't been any activity on this post for a while, but I am hoping to find other scrappers in my area! I am in Iowa City, anyone else in IC that is looking for a scrap buddy:)

Sorry there isn't more info here. We created these state subcategories to help people connect but I don't think they are utilized much anymore.

Hi anyone still here from Iowa? I'm from Northeastern Iowa near Waterloo and north of Cedar Rapids. I haven't been scrapping lately but would like to get back into it.
