It's official, Craft Habit has a permanent home! There's plenty of work to be done before we can re-open, but the papers are in, the first checks have been written, and this. is. happening!!! Our new home is in Gateway Plaza, a shopping center located between Capital Blvd and Raleigh Blvd, just north of downtown Raleigh, and just south of 440. It's pretty easy to get to from most places, and it has a big ol' parking lot, yay!
We're excited to document the progress over the next few months as this space transforms into our dream crafting clubhouse. As much as we love DIY, this is DEFINITELY a job for professionals, but we'll be taking pictures and sharing paint samples and such along the way. We've already started peeling off the window tinting, and scheming on new plants for out front (although those cheery flowers are the best part right now!).
A peek at the near future...
Craft Habit is a retail and workshop venue that offers unique and high-quality crafting supplies, tools, and hands-on classes to quench the thirst of any craft enthusiast or DIY lover.
Craft Habit is a highly interactive retail space. Customers can register for classes, arrange private crafting events and birthday parties, and use in-store workspace to begin projects with their purchased supplies. In all cases, a crafty staff member or instructor is on-hand to lend expertise.
Our goal is to share our passion and creativity with Raleigh one craft at a time. Along with growing skills in the community, we’ll introduce our fellow craft addicts to materials from independent supply companies, American and local manufacturers, and quality tools fit for discerning makers.
