Fancy Tiger Crafts is a revolutionary shop in Denver, Colorado that specializes in craft supplies and classes for the modern crafter. Owners Jaime Jennings and Amber Corcoran's vision is to inspire people to reach their crafting potential through modern and sustainable supplies and quality instruction. We believe that making things by hand makes people feel better and that if more people made things, the world would be a better place.
Fancy Tiger was opened on June 16th, 2006 at 1 S. Broadway in Denver by partners Matthew Brown and Jaime Jennings. The product of their two passions respectively, fashion and crafting, this tiny DIY boutique paved the way for the recent revitalization of the Broadway shopping district. As the business grew, they saw an opportunity to expand in January of 2008 when a retail space opened across the street on Broadway. They split the stores into Fancy Tiger Crafts at the original location and Fancy Tiger Clothing across the street. At this time, Jaime brought on long-time friend and crafts aficionado, Amber Corcoran, as a partner for the growing crafts store and Matthew took the reins on his own with Fancy Tiger Clothing. With constant support from the community, loyal customers and an inspiring team in the Fancy Tiger Crafts crew, the store continued to grow for several years. On January 1st, 2012, Fancy Tiger Crafts moved to a much larger and awesomer location at 59 Broadway. Sister store, Fancy Tiger Clothing, and locally-owned Buffalo Exchange rounded out the line-up of businesses sharing this newly renovated building. The current location features two large sewing studios and an expansive community space for events and handcrafting. In 2014, Jaime and Amber opened the online store to share the love and inspiration of their little brick and mortar to the world beyond Denver. If you're ever in the neighborhood – please visit us and say hi! We love handcrafting and making it all ourselves. Jaime and Amber host our Open Craft Night every Tuesday night and we'd love to meet you! Bring your project and knit, spin, crochet, or embroidery with us from 6 – 9pm. Jaime likes hiking, traveling to new places, drinking lattes and hanging with her cats. Amber likes foraging for mushrooms, savoring scotch and making things up as she goes.
