Well, I don't know much about how to start clubs, but I'm going to research information about it.  Hopefully, we can get more people into this idea.  Since I'm already in Criminal Justice school right now, I can't get more funding for FIDM, but I have enrolled in a certificate program for dressmaking and design.  I'm hoping that if a club can get started, I can share information that I learn in this program with others.  It sounds like a lot of fun!  I get back to you guys when I get more info.  And if anyone in the Southern California area is interested, let this forum know.

I'm in Golden Hill/South Park.  I would love to be involved in a craft club etc.  Is everyone 21 or up?  I know a bar in South Park that some friends and I have had sewing night at before... perhaps I could talk him into hosting us

I live in Encinitas, and I'm willing to join in on the Crafty club.  We can share ideas, exchange patterns, and suggest fabric choices.  I am currently taking a (free) sewing class in SD and just got a brand new sewing machine!  I have recently sewn costumes and hats for myself and b-friend.  Perhaps we should start by choosing a place and date to meet...

I just went shopping for a sewing machine yesterday.  Yikes, those things are expensive!  Does anyone know of a place in San Diego where I can get a used machine with at least 14 stitch functions that is sturdy and will sew through denim?  My budget is between $100-200 (and 200 is a stretch).  My last machine was a super basic Singer from the 1940s that had been my grandma's and was maintained very well.  The thing was all metal, built like a tank, and wouldn't break.  So I don't mind a used machine, I just don't know where to find a good one (I've checked a few thrift stores but they have machines with blown out engines and frayed electric cords).

Angbag, where did you find free sewing classes in San Diego?  And what kind of machine did you just buy?

I live in Clairemont, which is pretty much central to anywhere you'd like to meet up.  Unfortunately, I am 20 until September.  I don't know the rules with bars, but can I come in and be crafty as long as I just order a Shirley Temple or something?  Or are they strictly 21+?

Kate,

I take free sewing classes here: 
http://www.sandiegocet.net/classes/spring/sewing.php

The community college has various locations around SD county.  Spring semester starts next week.

A girl in my class bought a used Bernina bernette at Sew Hut (http://www.sewhut.com/) on balboa ave at the corner of clairemont dr. (next to Albertson's).  I think she said it was $125.  I just got a Huskystar 219 for Christmas (it was $300). 
You can also check the classified ads in the Reader, U-T, or craigslist.org, or check Sears for their Kenmores. 
Good luck!

Are you talking about the Whistle Stop? I would love to go there for the knitting group sometime.

Do you want to plan something for this upcoming Saturday or Sunday?  That would be February 5th or 6th.  I'll be done with midterms by then, and slightly more sane and relaxed, and eager to jump back into knitting projects.  What times and places work for everyone?

The Whistle Stop does the Knit and Bitch thing, but I was talking about Sparky's.  Its a great place!  My friends and I go to burning man and the owner also goes to burning man, so last year we were making our costumes at the bar!  People get confused when they come to a bar and 5 people are sewing tutus!

Sara, I am going to burning man for my first time this year, and am beginning to make costumes for it.  Just recently went up to the Fashion District in L.A. and bought lots of fur/fabric!  I would love to get together and make costumes.  I wouldn't mind checking out the national city swapmeet sometime, too...
