Hey guys,

I recently moved to the Concord area from Seattle and I'm dying to meet up with other crafty folks!!!!

I paint, sew, write, draw...but mostly I make beaded jewelry.

Would love to make new friends with any kind of crafters!

I saw that there was a thread for the "Carolina Mafia" but I didn't post there...one of the other message boards I'm on REALLY frowns on reviving old threads!

The name's Kimberly by the way. Wink

I don't know about crafting groups but I'm a crafty person! I just moved from Concord to North Charlotte so I'm back and forth all the time right now.

Hi from Cornelius (the northern part of Mecklenburg county, near Davidson)!  I'm Reba, I work a bit with yarn.  Still learning. Smiley  I don't know of any craft groups around here, sadly.

It's nice to see other crafty folks from the Charlotte area.

Hi Kimberly (and Laura, and Reba!), I'm Corrinne. I'll be moving to Charlotte in 3 weeks! I'm from England. I found a Yahoo group for Rowan-Cabarrus Craft Club. I'm not sure how far away that it but some of the people on there live in Charlotte. Everyone seems really friendly and they get together fairly often.

I always seem to have multiple crafty projects on the go. I'm (slowly) teaching myself to crochet, I sew a bit and make jewellery. I love taking photos too - I don't go anywhere without my camera  Smiley

If we can't find an existing group, we should organise something ourselves. What do you think?

The only craft related get together I know of here in Concord is the knitting/crochet thing they have at the tea house nearby once a month (downtown Concord).  but I've never been to it since I keep forgetting about it.  >_<  But yeah.. I would love to be in a crafting group if my school schedule isn't too hectic.  I crochet, sew and I'm trying to learn how to knit... but bottom line is I just love using my hands.

My name's Brittany, by the way.  ^_^

I know the feeling! I usually have craft time only on the weekends now that classes are in session.

Nice to meet you guys. Grin

Sorry..I shouldn't even be posting here.  I live in NYC, but I am from Charlotte, and I just went to the North Carolina board out of curiostiy. Sort of like when I check out other cities on Craigslist out of curiosity.  Anywho, I wish I was there to join y'all, start a new group or something, could be fun... 

Best of luck, I hope y'all are able to put something together!

I live in charlotte and would be interested in getting together with other crafters.  i do beadwork and hemp jewelry and some other random crafts.  I am a full time student, so am trying to get started selling what i make to make some extra cash.  i have the luxury of living with my son so that helps, but i have always had a dream of having a store where crafters can sell thier stuff and meet and have fun...anyone know of any place like that around charlotte area? 
thank you
