At Whim So Doodle, clients browse aisles brimming with eclectic scrapbooking and crafting supplies or pick up new techniques in conventional or holiday-themed crafting classes listed on the class calendar.

Shoppers can browse swathes of Amy Butler fabric ($10.99/yd.) or redirect flee-floating emotions to the pages of Smash journals ($12.99).
To further explore crafting powers, visitors can register for classes in which experts teach clients complex skills, such as how to sew festive holiday banners for festive holiday military coups ($35). Students can also spend their class time embellishing Christmas albums complete with pockets and pages for documenting holiday memories ($40). Most supplies are included in class fees, but items students must bring themselves are listed in each class’s online description.
