I just moved back to central Illinois and I fell like I am losing my creative mind. I would love to start a stich n' bitch group with weekly meetings, but any form of crafting would be welcome. If you would be interested in joining please contact me!

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

Hey! I'm in bloomington, and I do a little knitting (very beginner), and a few other types of crafts! I know U of I has a decent crafting group, and there is a knitting club at my school.

We have a general craft group (not just knitting) that meets at each other's houses.  It is a yahoo group called CU_craftgroup and we generally meet in Champaign or Urbana.  Also there is a local stitch and bitch yahoo group but they haven't been active since last summer.

I know this is an old thread - but I live in the Chambana area - are there any crafty groups still meeting? Roll Eyes

Our group still gathers sporadically, whenever someone offers to host at their place.  Right now we are gathering handmade blankets for Project Linus!  You can join the yahoo group and get updates about meetings:

I'd love to see what's going on but I can't endure yahoo. Is there another way to connect?

Yeah, the yahoo group has been sadly neglected.  I occasionally post a get-together on the chambana livejournal group.  The problem with this town is that when starting a group it seems like the majority of people interested will be students and students are transient and don't stick around long so the group sort of dissipates and it's a constant struggle to keep a large enough base together to justify hosting events.  There are still a few of us die-hard chambana crafters though who still get together.
