I don't have any crafty friends and it's beginning to drive me insane. Seriously. Haha. I want somebody to craft with! My friends will come over when I say I'm working (working=sewing/crafting) but they say it's fine and come over anyways and all they do is complain about how they're bored, even if I offer to teach them how to make something. I want some crafting company!

Obviously I'm not going to be like, "Nice to meet you, here's my address!" if somebody actually exists in this area that's crafty, but if we chat online for a while and get along it would be awesome to have somebody near here to craft with. Even if someone reading this just knows of a crafting group that meets up weekly/monthly, I'd be more than happy with that.

As far as location goes, I'm in Fairfield County (Norwalk).

I feel like I just wrote a classified ad. Haha.

EDIT: I just realized it would probably be a good idea to give some more info about me. I've been sewing/crafting for almost 10 years. I predominately sew apparel, bags/purses, accessories, and stuffed animals. I dabble in almost every craft (my room is like a craft store...it's ridiculous) but probably spend the most time crocheting, embroidering, and making jewelry & paper goods. I've been going to school online since my sophomore year in high school. Hmm...what else? I'm a little hesitant to say my age because 99% of the people I have encountered who are the same age as me have appalling behavior and do and say the things that I did when I was 12 or 13, so please don't judge me based off of my age. Now that I've given my disclaimer (haha), I'm sixteen. Lastly, something completely random...I have a fat pug named Nala who snorts and is an adorable chubby pig. Hahaha. Ok, I'm done.

You're so far though! Isn't Wallingford just over an hour from here?

Wallingford? I'm right next door in North Haven !

thisisserious, I'm 16 as well, and my friends are exactly into crafting, so I feel your pain! It's too bad you live far away though  Undecided

There seems to be a lack of craftiness in CT, I mean, there are a few yarn & bead stores in New Haven, but other than that, there isn't much. Craft fairs just seem to be the same old thing ... too-expensive jewelry that looks the same, and painted birdhouses. *Sigh,* I wish a crafting revolution could happen soon!

25, knitter, seamstress, crocheter, well-rounded Jane of all trades, living in Windsor (CraftsyFattie, we need to talk!)

For yarn people, there are a bunch of stores up this way. Creative Fibers in Windsor and Criations in Somers are my favorite. If you sew, you absolutely must visit Affordable Fabrics in Rocky Hill (on the Silas Deane). I found some black linen (feels like 100%, but no label, and I haven't gotten around to burning it yet) there a few weeks ago... $2/yd, like everything else in the store. Cheesy

Anyone interested in a CT crafters picnic? I'll organize it if y'all bring food!

I'm in the Norwalk area as well.  Crafty people do exist in CT - I commute on Metro-North, and I occasionally see someone knitting or doing needlepoint on the train.  (Besides myself, that is.  Tongue )
