Fancy Tiger Crafts is About to Get Even More Amazing!

We are super excited about our upcoming move one block north to 59 Broadway. This has been in the works for over a year now and finally we will be able to share with you all of the awesomeness that is about to come! Our new location will be shared with our sister store, Fancy Tiger Clothing, as well as new-comer-to-South Broadway, Buffalo Exchange. Each store will have their own unique and beautiful space in the original Woolworth's building built in 1913. We have renovated the building (which had sat empty for 5 years) into a warm and welcoming space for our three creative and locally-owned businesses to flourish.


The new crafts space is 2 1/2 times as big as our current store! It will allow us to expand our offerings of your favorite crafts supplies (still sticking with our love of textile and fiber related crafts), but more importantly we want to offer you, our friends and patrons, a relaxing and community-oriented shopping experience. There will be more space for you to shop, the products will be easier to see and better displayed, and there will be a crafting area for hanging out and getting your craft on at all times of the day. Two registers and cutting tables will mean we can give you more attention and help with your purchases and less time waiting in line. Do you need to sit down while browsing books and patterns? No problem! Do you need to spread bolts of fabric out to plan your next quilt? No problem! Do you need a relaxing place to sit and knit on your lunch break? Come on over!


We will have 3 classrooms - 2 sewing studios and 1 knitting and crochet studio. The sewing studios are larger and located on the main level - the extra space will mean less waitlists and more class offerings. We will also be hosting tons of free community events and would love to work with your crafting group - things are already in the works for events with the Denver Handmade Alliance, Craftsy, and AIGA Craftworks!
 

Two more things: 1. there is a parking lot. 2. there is a fireplace

The big move will take place over the New Year's holiday - we will be closing the shop here at 1 S. Broadway on December 31st - look for us to reopen at 59 Broadway by January 4th. This is the last week to see us in our adorable and well-loved home at 1 S. Broadway, so stop by to say your goodbyes if your feeling a little sentimental!
