My friend Brandy and I have re-started a crafting group called Crafty Geek! We are the crafting arm of the Geek Partnership Society, who puts on Sci-Fi convention CONvergence every July.
There are two points to Crafty Geek and they are 1. Meet new people and 2. Learn new crafts. We are meeting weekly on Thursdays at 7 pm, and will also have one meeting a month devoted to learning a new craft. Our next new craft meeting is Thursday Sept 9 and we will be doing LEGO crafting. On October 7 we will be making masks! Meetings in between will generally involve food and hanging out and making stuff. Also, if you want to come to the "new craft" meetings but not participate in the craft, that is fine because we like company and *someone* has to help us eat all those cookies!
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or have a looksie at our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Crafty-Geek/124592694253781?ref=ts) for directions and more calendars and stuff. Hope to see you soon!
