I am new to Craftster. I have lived in the Asheville area for a little over 8 years now. I am originally from South Bend, Indiana. I love it here! We moved here for the climate, the mountains and because there is so much more to do here. I live in Fairview and my day job is in Black Mountain. I make my own handbuilt and sometimes wheelthrown pottery, polymer clay, beading and jewelry, crocheting, and I would love to learn metal clay and knitting. The yarn shop in Black Mountain has classes- I would love to take a class this winter after work in the evenings. I am in the Blue Ridge Polymer Clay Guild. It's a very laid back, fun group of people for anyone interested in polymer clay.
