Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
Housed in a cozy 1920s home, Dragonfly Shops & Gardens stocks an eclectic variety of works created by local artisans and hosts DIY classes for all ages. In the beading basics class ($30 plus materials, which start at $2), beaders band together for two hours on Tuesday mornings to complete projects ranging from earrings and necklaces to bracelets and ultra-feminine beer helmets. A beginner's mosaic tiling class ($55 plus $20 for materials) teaches creatives of all levels of skill and glee in smashing tiles to compose one-of-a-kind picture frames, trays, and stepping stones. Or delve into the dirt with a class on growing edible flowers and greens ($10 plus $5 for materials). Attendees can sip fresh coffee or cool lemonade.
