I'm way over in Clearwater, just west (and over the causeway) of Tampa - which I guess makes me not so central, haha.
But there's got to be some crafty gals (and guys!) this side of the Big O!
I do many many different kinds of crafting, but very few of the more "conventional" ones, like knitting/ crochet/embroidery - but I'm learning! In the meantime, I sew, and sometimes even print my own fabric (and carve my own printing blocks). I also am quite fond of crafting wire-and-bead jewelry, making things from little bits of felt/cloth, and the outdated wonders of macrame. ...and drawing, and puttering about with clay (polymer and kiln-fired), and finding unconventional and/or forgotten traditional uses for my crafts. And lately I've been obsessed with traditional Japanese handicrafts.
Does anyone have any shops to recommend over on my side? Is anyone from the Clearwater/Saint Petersburg/Tampa area?
