Hey all -- just wondering if there are any cool craftsters in Charlottesville, VA or thereabouts who might want to get a little group together. I'm 27 and a student, and I mostly sew, but would love to meet creative folks of other persuasions too. Let me know!

Me!  I'm in Cville, and I think I'm cool.   Cheesy

There's a Stitch & Bitch that meets at Cville coffee on Wednesday nights.  There's usually a fair amount of knitters there, but I've been scheduled to work wednesday nights from here to eternity (so it seems) so I'm not able to make it to that anymore.  Boo.

I'm 26, I mainly crochet, but I can knit (badly) and I've been sewing for a while too.

I've been thinking about trying to start something up on the weekends, but have no clue how to go about it.

I'm here! I'm a dabbler, but lately I'm heavily into knitting and crochet.

I had no idea there was an S&B in town. Man, I should take my knitting tomorrow. What time does it start?

I'm just getting into crochet, so if you want help with your knitting and can help me suck less and amigurumi we can work something out. :-p

I have often pondered whether to try starting something up. I figured that if I did it, I'd post something on the bulletin board in the Tea Bazaar.

Googling turned up this yahoo group for the Cville SnB. The meetings are from 7-9. I think I'll turn up tonight for the first half and see how it is. I gotta get home by 8 for my weekly online "date night" with my boyfriend, making fun of Jericho together.

Hey Everyone! I am a craftster in C'ville.  I am 25, just moved here, and trying to meet some new people (my boyfriend is getting his graduate degree here at UVA).  I have a few people over my house on Wednesday nights around 7 and we knit.  If you are interested, I would love to have you over.  I would go out to the SnB at C'ville Coffee but there's something comforting about being able to relax in a home during the winter:)

Wednesday nights at 7 is when the SnB gathers. Precisely. Not that I'm a founding member or anything, but if you switch it to another time then the other ladies who go to the SnB might come.

Hey everyone, I'm in Charlottesville too.  I dabble in a lot of things, but don't know how to knit/crochet =P  Glad to see there are some other crafty C'villians here too  Smiley

Hey, I'm a 20-something crafty Charlottesvill'er too!

I've made a couple of SnB meetings in the past, but I'm more of a crocheter and sewer than a knitter... so I'd definitely be up for a less knit-centric crafty meetup, if anyone else is.

Moi!


Are the Stitch and Bitches full of knitters? *brandishes crochet hook*


Maybe we need a general craftster meetup ...

Hi there, I reside in Cville.  I may be a little old for your group - I just turned 30 in December.   Tongue  I'd be interested in getting together if if anyone still does...but I don't have the foggiest idea how to knit.   Huh

Hello!
I am a fellow craftster in Cville as well! I dont knit or crochet but I do sew a little. I have a really old Singer sewing machine. and have to read the directions every time I take it out.

I mostly dabble in collage, silk painting, photography, and jewelry making.

I am also in the C'ville area - have been for over 15 years now.  I'm not as young as most of you, and I don't knit, crochet a little - mostly I sew.  I sew a LOT.  Would LOVE to be able to get together with others in the area who share a common disease (that is what my hubby calls it, my addiction [grin]), and see who has the biggest 'stash'!!  Maybe swap fabric and ideas?  I'm open to meet, have coffee/tea, etc.  Feel free to email me if interested.  Oh yeah, I'm also into historical re-enacting.  So, if you like that sort of thing...

I posted in this thread a while ago, but not much ever came of it, except that there seems to be a SnB group on Wednesdays  Tongue

I'm usually not in town on weekends, but anyone up for meeting up on a weekday night?  We can just hang out someplace, maybe bring some portable crafts?  Maybe Splendora's?  Good gelato weather!

Hello crafters!!

My husband and I just moved to Charlottesville from Prague.  I was going weekly to stitch n' bitch there, and just loved hanging out and working with others who have a love for crafts!  If you guys are interested, it would be great to get something going here.  I am aware of the stitch n' bitch wednesdays but it would be nice to meet in a more closed setting where you can lay out your crafts if needed.  I would be happy to host each week if you're interested.  Let me know!

I'm definitely interested!  Let me know if you get much of a response?  Also, what types of crafters that are interested...  I mean, a bunch of knitters aren't necessarily going to want to sit around talking to a bunch of machine embroiderers, and vice versa - are they?  I'm interested in all of it, because I want to learn to knit, I do machine embroidery, I sew, etc.   Cheesy

Welcome to Charlottesville, smashleymiller! Smiley

I'm still interested, and I'm sure my housemate would be too.  I crochet, bead, and sew by hand, and a little in embroidery.  But I'd just love to hang out with other crafty people whatever their specialty!

I'm not usually in town on Fridays/weekends, but if you guys are up for a weekday evening, I'll come!  And I can bring snacks Smiley

Ok, so why don't we just start the three of us and hopefully more will join?! 

We were living in Prague, and I was a part of an international craft group that did just about anything!  Some were just knitters, others did crochet, beading, felting, basket-making, Im working on a quilt, the list goes on!  We would all chip in a little snack or drink and just sit around doing our thing and chatting. 

I was hoping to re-create a similar group here.  Would Thurs from 6:30-9 work for you guys?   

I've set up an email address for all those interested!

Sounds good to me!  Actually it sounds awesome Smiley  I could start next week, or whenever (just not tomorrow, haha).  Hmm, now I just have to think of what to bring!

Next week sounds good to me as well.  And perhaps by then, we might even have another person or two interested as well.  We can use the whichcraft email to communicate what we will be bringing with us for snacks, etc - sound reasonable?  Possibly, in the future, we might even consider rotating where we meet.  I wouldn't be adverse to host(ess)ing on occasion, then there isn't too much of a burden on anyone.

I'm sure my housemate Jen would love to come, and we could probably host sometimes too Smiley  And coordinating snacks would probably be wise... you're a smart lady, LadyFaire!

Ok girls, lets start next week on Thurs at 6:30!  Send me an email and I will let you know how to get here.  Bring whatever crafts you wish to dabble in.  We can discuss goodies later  Smiley  Look forward to hearing from you all!

Hi fellow c-ville crafters.  I am organizing a local craft show to support the Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA.  If you are interested, please check out http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323831.0

Thanks!

PS. I would love to meet up with the group sometime, I do mainly paper crafts but always love checking out other crafts!
