Hey everyone,
Glad to see so many interested people!  The plan was to have the first meeting at Coffee Chicago and then the rest at my place in Andersonville, but since it was only Desirae and I at the last meeting, how about we do the next one at Coffee Chicago too?  Desirae and I had planned to meet at 6pm on Thursday, January 31, and we talked about having these get-togethers twice per month. 
So how about we meet next Thurs, the 31st, at Coffee Chicago, located at Berwyn and Broadway?
Yay for a craft group!

That sounds great. It's a bit far for me, is there parking around there? I'm off the blue line, so it'd probably be easier to drive...

Its exciting to see so much interest in this!  When we met at Coffee Chicago last week I drove and didn't have a problem finding a spot.  Right out side of the shop there is meter parking and about a block away starts the free street parking.  The red line Berwyn stop is right there as well.

Though a coffee shop is a nice place to do needlework, I look forward to meeting in a home where it will be more conducive to projects like scrapbooking or working with clay. 

I'll see you next Thursday!  Grin

Well, tentatively scheduled for April 5th at my theatre ( www.strawdog.org ) is the exciting second Crafty Beaver T-shirt competition.  A couple of years ago, we had a tank top competition and had the best time ever.  Basically, everybody gave a tank top the DIY treatment and we all get drunk and modeled them.  Twas great fun.  We are doing it again with t-shirts this time.  I will have supplies on hand to decorate the t-shirts you bring or you can bring one already finished... But its sure to be good goofy fun.  And we have a bar.  What can be better than bedazzling and drinking? Boys and girls welcome.  When I get more details, I will let you know....

Strawdog is on the second floor at 3829 North Broadway in the Uptown/boystown neighborhood and right off the sheridan redline stop.  There is street parking but it can be tricky to acquire.

The t-shirt competition sounds interesting.  Is there a fee to get in?  What kind of prize is there?

You should definitely put this in the calendar!  Let me know if you don't know how.  Smiley
