We’ve Remodeled!

Get Ready for a Brand New ACR!

If you have been following us online for the past few weeks, you may have heard some rumors about major changes that we were making in the center. We’re now ready to show off what we’ve been getting up to! With the assistance of one of our fantastic core volunteers, we were able to analyze the layout of the center and create a new floor plan that best utilized the space. After weeks of drafting and fine tuning, we are so excited to see our dream for the center turn into reality! Our staff and volunteers have been working tirelessly to create an all-new, fresh shopping experience for when we reopen. Even our most dedicated shoppers will feel like they are discovering us for the first time! 


Check out our new register hub! In our last layout, the register was neatly tucked against the wall and hard to spot as soon as you walk in. Now, the register is one of the first things you’ll see when you enter.


Our bucket section has always been the star of the show. It best represents our mission to reuse materials and make the arts accessible to everyone. Before, it was tucked away in the back of the center. Now, it’s front and center and shining brighter than ever!


One of the first things that you will notice when you enter our center is the restructuring of the aisles. We took great care when creating the floor plan to ensure that each aisle flows into the next. The new configuration brings natural light into the aisles and leads you into our new Fabric and Fiber Arts section at the back of the store. 


We hope you were able to get a taste of our current fabric selection during the last Fabric Sidewalk Sale (thank you again to everyone who attended!). The Fat Quarter Shop in Buda has been donating thousands of pounds of high quality fabric to us and our fabric selection is now better than ever. And don’t worry- we still have our beloved rainbow yarn wall, it’s just been relocated to a new home!


We can’t wait to show off our new layout and welcome our community back into the center. We’ll see you soon!

    Is ACR still going to have Senior Hour Saturday mornings???

    • Kat Moulton | Mar 22,2021

      Yes! We’ll still have a dedicated shopping hour for seniors and high risk populations Saturday mornings from 10AM – 11AM. We’ll continue this until the vaccine becomes widely available to the entire population.
