I was so happy to see this article when I opened my paper this morning! As an avid scrapbooker for over 8 years now (but closer to 40 than 20) I love sharing my hobby with people. I'm very active in the online scrapbooking community and enjoy very much seeing pages done from young people's perspectives. I'm surprised, though, that you didn't include anything about the burgeoning digital scrapbooking industry. Not only is it less messy than traditional paper scrapbooking, it also has the "coolness" factor that today's tech-savvy young people enjoy...and it's cheaper! I'd love to see you explore that side of the industry in a future article.

I recently went to Scrapaholics in West Hempstead and I have to say out of all the scrap booking stores I've been to they certainly have the largest variety of all my scrapbooking needs. Also their prices are unbeatable, so far as I can see. Its definitly worth checking out, and their staff is quite knowledgable. I definitly reccomend it for anyone who is experienced, or just looking into getting into the wonderful world of scarpbooking.

Being a newbee in the world of scrapbooking I found Alison and her staff, at Scrapaholics, to be quite helpful in startting out with this new hobby. The store has a huge variety of everything you could ever want. They make you excited with all of their products. I couldn't wait to go home and get started! Their classes are terrific too and it doesn't matter if your a 10 year veteran or just getting started, they offer a new and edgy way to scrap.

Well come to Suffolk, Your Happy Place has THE largest selection. I have been to Scrapaholics and it is not even 1/4 of what the store in Northport has. Helen S.

The classes at Your Happy Place are great. I love the altered stuff and that is the place to be for that kind of class! There is one teacher there I don't care for she used to teach at the closed Stony Brook store, but the other teachers are the best that there is and everyone else is kind!

I love to scrapbook. And I'm far over 20. This is a hobby for all ages. Even my grandchildren scrapbook, and started around 3 years old.

Heck yes! Scrapbooking is the "in" thing and I love that it's part of my everyday life.

...I think scrapbooking appeals to a broader demographic than the 20-something community. The newest generation to discover the past time has definitely introduced a new marketable element, but the 30 to 60 age group was doing this LONG before the "hip" kids purchased their first paper trimmer. The next target market will undoubtedly be men...if the marketing gurus have their way!

Gee, I've always known scrapbooking was cool. pretty stupid to think it was about card stock and stickers that's so 1990's.

We've been sewing, painting, beading and using wire for YEARS now.

As an expat living in Europe, we do not enjoy 50% of the products and promotion available in the U.S. I agree, scrapbooking per se has been around a LOOONG time, it is just now getting the attention it deserves due to the bottom line dollars it generates. period.
