[I hope you can read this entry from start to finish...don''t just skim through the pictures :p]
Warning: You might experience some craft overdose. This is the motherload of all crafty stuff.
I've been featuring yarn stores in my blog to help crocheters out there find places where they can get their yarn supply. I'm not into other crafts and don't share much about craft stores and the other stuff they sell. This one is an exception though and is worth telling about. I don't know if this is an exclusive scoop, but if anyone of you is into crafts, this blog might just be your manna from heaven (yes, I'm that boastful about it).
Do you know Craft World? They used to have branches in SM Megamall, Market! Market!, Robinson's Galleria, and Festival Mall. It's actually quite sad that with all this renewed appreciation for crafts and handmade stuff, especially among young people, this "institution" is no longer serving the needs of crafters like us in malls.
So one good question to ask is, "Where did all the stuff from all those branches go?"
They all went here.
They are selling cords in packs. Each pack is only P20 and it already contains 4 sets! There are shiny shimmery ones and plain ones. There could be so many uses for these.
Crafty hobbies like cross-stitching, ceramic painting and scrapbooking are covered.
There are also special needles on sale! Below you can see Susan Bates knitting needles for only P25 and needles for tatting at P10/set of 3.
I just have a favor to ask if you decide to go to this place. When you go here, buy those things for something you will make for yourself or to help you create more handmade products. Don't buy it because it's cheap and you will only sell it later online at a higher price. Buy it also for someone who will have better use for these things. This is a great chance for craft materials to be available to anyone. This time, you won't be worrying about any budget. Your P100 will go a long way.
This will be our final tribute to Craft World and to a legacy of encouraging others to be creative and to be imaginative enough to make something uniquely theirs, and for always reminding us that it feels better to make something by yourself than to buy it ready-made. It may take more work and cost more, but it's worth it.
THANK YOU CRAFT WORLD!!! You're definitely leaving us with a bang!
