I'm thinking about starting a craft night one night a week at my work, a local vegetarian restaurant in NYC, and i am looking for some suggestions or advice or even some examples of other nights in other cities (or this one.)
If you went to a craft night would you prefer a free for all or a guided craft event with a host?
Should i start with one & work towards the other?
There would be drink specials & we have a good bit of room.

You may want to post this in your city specific forum.

Just an idea.

My friends and I used to do a craft club....it was very home grown.  We would take turn picking the projects, but tired to center it around something affordable, or somethere where supplies could be easily shared.  Other times it was just "bring what you are working on" night.  Those night were more centered around socializing and sharing, rather then having a 'lesson" so to speak.

I've only ever done the free for all version.  I would say start with that (easier), and then at some point try a "special event" thing where you do the other way and see how it goes. I would still mix in the free for alls though.
My problem has always been finding the night that can accommodate the most people.
