Oh wow, so glad to see people's interest in getting together!

Tuesday are good for me too other than March 8th - I'm good with house or coffeeshop. I live in Wicker Park, and there are several good coffeeshops near me like Filter and Letizia's, but I can go to Ravenswood or elsewhere as well. I'm also happy to post whatever topic/location is on CommuniTeach to bring more crafty people out of the woodwork and increase turnout if you'd like.

On a related note, there's a knitting workshop happening this Monday if any of you would like to come for that: http://communiteach.com/learnit.php?glid=125

And a not-artsy-but-still-fun pool workshop http://communiteach.com/learnit.php?glid=127

Excited to meet with you all!

My house is a mess and not likely to be clean by tomorrow night. Cheesy  Let's pick a coffee shop down closer to where everyone is. Is that cool? I assume it's easier for most people to get to the Logan Square area since I know most of the main group lives there and it sounds like the new gals are closer to there, too.  Could someone pick a good place down there since you all probably know the area better?  Let's say 6:30ish?

Also, does anyone oppose my good friend coming along?  He's studying linguistics and is doing a big paper on the language  of crafters!  One of his requirements for the paper is to attend a meeting of the group of people he's writing about. He doesn't bite, I swear. Tongue

Not sure if I'll make it tonight.  The interweb has been down this week at work and I'm playing catch up.  I do look forward to meeting new Crafsters though!  I'm writing Al Gore to complain, so this won't happen again.

I definitely don't and since it's already 4:30 let's just agree on it. Cheesy  btw, you can easily pick me out of a crowd... I have pink bangs and blue hair.  Tongue

I'm free Tuesdays except today and next Tuesday. Only issue for me is that the area i live in is kinda bad so if i'm going to be out at night i have to either use a cab or have a ride since i don't drive

Fin and I met up last night and we decided we simply must do it again.  Tongue Cheesy  So hopefully next week more people can come out! We can meet at the coffee shop again or my house, whatever's better!
