Earlier in the summer a friend of mine took a stab at setting up a stich n bitch kinda thing in the hair tech at MUN. Don't know how well it went or if it'll be on in Sept but I'll let you know.

yay!  i'm a newfoundlander too!  i didn't realize there were so many other newfies who hung out at this forum!  now that i do know, i was thinking it would be cool if we had a newfoundlanders only craft swap (not neccessarily newfoundland "themed"  but with newfoundland members as the swappers) !  i would organize it myself but you have to already particpated in at least 2 swaps to do so.  i have been wanting to participate in a swap for so long now but i would like to start out close to home, where i know there is a much better chance of sending/receiving the packages safely.  i posted in the swap gallery looking for a canada only swap and ended up finding this post about newfies on craftster ... so if anyone is interested and fits the criteria for starting a swap .. i think it would be an excellent idea and i would be totally interested in participating!

Hi everyone, I'm originally from Ontario, but moved to the Carbonear area just over a year ago. I do miss all the craft stores that I used to frequent. There is a small sewing store close by, but if I need any amount of items I have to drive for an hour  into St. John's. I would really like to find a place for learning quilting, without having to travel into the " city", gas is not cheap!! I also miss the big Sewing/Craft Show that comes to Toronto twice a year. Is there anything like that here?? Sometimes I get jealous of our friends in the U.S. they have great places for crafts and there stuff is cheaper to!!  One craft light I wanted to buy in the U.S is just over 200.00 here ( In Canada) it would cost me close to 500.00 with the S/H.

Hi to all.  Another fellow Newfoundlander here.  Actually Labradorian too, since I've been living here for 16 years.  I was wondering if anyone here knows where one could purchase spinning supplies in St. John's.  I will be visiting town the end of September and I think I need to start yet another form of crafting.

I'm interested in spinning yarn from roving, using a spindle of some sort.  I know I can purchase supplies online, but I would really like to actually handle some supplies first, just to see if I can spin.

Sorry Kelly, I tried looking up some places that might sell spinning..stuff. But nothing I could find. But Im sure we have something. Just gotta keep looking.
Also just wondering if anyone had actually attempted the Stitch and Bitch groups or any "Newfoundlander" swaps. Just curious.

Thanks Marie, I asked for a sheep for Christmas, but...I'm pretty sure thats not gonna happen  Wink  My grandfather used to keep sheep years ago.  Man was I ever afraid of them!  They use to run wild.  Now I'd love to have one.

Wow, I've been on Craftster for about 4 months but this is the first time I noticed this section of the forum!  Newfoundlanders!  Hooray! 
I live on the west coast in Corner brook and I go to Sir Wilfred Grenfell college.   I know this topic is old, but I still wanted to say "HI!!!"

Hi KrisCreates!  Welcome to craftster...or crackster.  You'll find it very addicting.  Yes, there are a few of us on here.  I'm in Goose Bay, and I know personally of 5 members of craftster here in town.  I'm sure there are more throughout the province.

Corner Brook is a great city (the west coast in general is wonderful).   I was there last month.
