I'm in Palm Bay! Craft fairs around here are not worth it, imo. I did some a couple years ago, all different holidays and seasons, and barely paid for my table each time. There are just too many old people and poorer people that like Wal-mart and the Dollar Store, and don't want to pay for handmade stuff.
Just my opinion though  Smiley

I'm from palm bay. Are you looking for craft fairs or just crafty funness?

Me and my friends meet monday nights starting at 6 at Main Street Pub for a Purl and Hurl we get together and knit and crotch and drink! If you live in the melbourne or palm bay area come say hi. We have a table reserved. If you can't spot us by the large group knitting we are on the downstairs front patio to your right as you walk in.

If you don't know where main street pub is.. it's down town melbourne. Just look for the street light with a knitted cozy. Smiley

You don't have to drink to come and we can show you how to knit. Not far is The Sunshoppe where everyone hangs out for coffee. I like coffee more than the drinking myself too. But it's still a nice place and it has yummy food. I usually show up later when I get off work so I just order myself dinner and and water and knit and chat.

Haha, somehow we manage though sometimes mishaps happen. My friend had a row counter and some time extra people just show up like boyfriends and the such since it is at a public place. So my friend had a row counter and it was sitting on the table someone clueless picked it put and was clicking away and then ask, "hey what is this by the way?" Oh the look of horror.

I tend to bring scarves to knitting night. Nothing too complicated. Or a pattern that I am "just not getting" and have someone show me. But some can knit and chat. My friend knits socks all the time there. I guess it's an acquired skill?

How long have you been knitting or doing what you do??  I have been sewing about 3 years now........I tried to learn from a book but discovered the one true rule--you really need to be taught a hands on skill in person.....took some classes and now I can venture out on my own, but it took awhile.............my interest has never flagged though........just got more interested.............

It's been over two years, 3 years maybe? Now that I know the years I feel like I should be way more skilled. I've never even attempted cables. And in like the last 4 months i just learned how to do double pointed knitting in the round.

I learned from a book but I think I still had to go to someone and ask how to cast on. Once I got that it just took practice and patience (sp?).

I posted about my event in Kissimmee and searched all over central florida for crafters to come sell there stuff.  Since some don't mind the drive I have it open to all even in palm bay.

Shocked)

Hi, I live in Sebastian and my sister is in Palm Bay and my niece is in West Melbourne. I belong to a craft club in Sebastian. Their shows are the 1st. Saturday of the month from Oct. thru May.  shows are iffy.  sometimes not so good. We did the strawberry festival a few weeks ago. Was really nice. The 3 of us do shows together. I guess you could say that I have been "nominated" to find shows for us to do. If you are interested, let me know and I can let you know of any shows I find. Would appreciate the same.  Di

HEY! Wow, i was just thinking how awesome that would be to find people in the area who do this...Is it every monday night? Im dying for some interaction with fellow knitters/crocheters. I may just show up one monday night and lurk around to see if i can find you guys...I've lived in viera/melbourne/palm bay area my entire life and im ashamed to say i have yet to venture into downtown melbourne...
