Hi Californifrau
We are going to US 2nd Sept to 4th Oct this year

I tried to get a location on Micheals for Uhtah Colorado & Wyoming but it kept asking for a Zip code.

Can I be cheecky and ask if you could use your zip code, so I can plan my route

Have you tried A C Moors thats supposed to be another good one

Hello Californifrau. Only three weeks left until we leave the Big Apple for the Blue Danube. Glad you are liking California! Can't imagine what it must be like living there but I have enjoyed many a spring/summer vacation there.

Carolinette: If you want/need another zip code mine is 10044 (In NYC)

Oh Michaels... Yet another thing that I will miss...

Carolinett if you're coming anywhere near Boulder, CO, our brilliant Michaels is on Baseline off Mowhawk Dr. We love it and have busy busy since our last trip there. Painting T's might even make it a living . Have a great trip by the way and welcome in advance to the USA

champs Wed 31-May-06 02:41:00

hiya Alipiggie!!

Alipiggie Wed 31-May-06 02:42:45

Tell you what if you ever see anything on their website that you fancy, let me know and we'll sort out posting it over to you, send it as a gift then no duty due. What do you say??

champs Wed 31-May-06 03:08:39


thanks!!.... wasn't hinting.....


Carolinett Wed 31-May-06 08:46:04

We stay near Boulder on our way back to Denver I think it's near the Rocky Mountain National Park. Thanks for the info, thats another one on my planned route.

When I buy anything from the US I ask them to open the package or rip a bit of the corner of the packaging, make it look as if it's been open and ask them to put RETURN on the green label as if they have bought it of me and they are returning it.

Don't anyone start getting upset for me but here's my very sad story of the inhumanity to a crafter

We've been going to the US for years and beacause we never go into the big cities, I never get to do the craft shop, this time I'm putting my foot down with a firm hand
