Yeah, there are various groups but they are either underground, or exclusive for a certain group of friends or something.  I have heard of the Charlotte Craft Mafia and there was a knitting circle called Chicks with Sticks.  There is a really cool event in December in the Plaza-Midwood/Central area of town called Christmas in the 'Hood and I think that some of the vendors are in the Craft Mafia. 
Anyway, it would be cool to get something going.  I am really into indie craft, embroidery, knitting, and antique furniture.  I just started knitting so a needlecraft circle would be awesome.  I have asked the local library about using the space for this in the fall.  I will post back if they open it up. 

Hopefully we can come up with something one afternoon.  I would be cool with coming to the University area or NoDa if we could figure it out.

I'll be returning to the Charlotte/Fort Mill area in about a month for an indeterminate period of time, but I'd love to meet with a group at some point!  I know another person or two who would probably be interested as well Smiley

I'm totally up for this!  RockDragon mentioned that there was someone else that would be interested...  That would be me!  Hoorah!  I'm on summer vacation right now so I have two more trips away from the Charlotte area between now at August 16 but am definitely interesting in hanging out with other crafty people! 

One of the local libraries would be a great idea.  Is there still someone checking into that??  I live near Carolina Place but maybe we can find somewhere between the Pineville/Rock Hill/Fort Mill area and Concord that's central for everyone.

Hi I'm in the Lincoln Co. area but I would be willing to travel and meet up once a month or so. I'm also participating in a art antique market in Huntersville on 7/11 from 9-2 at the butter bean village market on old statesville rd. It's just getting started but they're hoping to make it a monthly event through the fall. If you sell or like handmade, stop by and give us a holler! I'd love to make friends!

I am on ravelry and just found out that there is a knit/crotchet circle at Amelies on either Tuesdays or Wednesday nights from like 6:30 until. Amelies (for those who aren't familiar) is a great, no AWESOME, little French bakery in the NoDa (North Davidson) area of Charlotte.  It is outside of Uptown and open 24/7.  There are actually quite a few knit/crotchet groups that meet around Charlotte from what I am learning.  PM me if you are interested in more times and meet-ups. 

There is the Rainy Day Creations that does a sit and knit in Pineville.  I am sure that after the summer, some of the libraries will pick up their knit groups again.  I know Main Library and Mint Hill both have knit groups.

I just joined the group on ravelry, seems like fun. And noda is easy to get to for me, just a bus ride. Or I can go with my friend's dad to work at 7 am. :p
