Hello, Smiley

We have just found out that we are moving to the Ft. Polk area from Germany. I am coming from a really wonderful group of crafters here and was hoping to connect with some crafty, thrift shop hunting, out side of the box thinking wonderful folks.  Smiley
Was wondering what kind of craft classes or shops they have on base and wanted to confirm that there are FIVE thrift shops in the area there?  Grin
I have been only getting info on line so far as it has been hard to find folks willing to be positive about that area.
We are a very crafty and close knit family though and can be happy where we are planted. I am sure that there are wonderful things there and I am sure that there are wonderful people there to do them with.
Drop me a line and maybe we can do an I owe you one exchange and I can get some goodies for you while I am still here in Germany. I have not signed up for any swaps because of how long the mailing system takes from over here and there is a slight chance that I could be a wee bit overweight for the move as it is...oops. I am choosing every scrap of fabric with care these days. However I probably have room for some more antique crafting things if need be.

Much Peace to all,
Tero

At the risk of coming off pathetic......... Undecided I am now at Ft. Polk and really having a hard time meeting positive, crafty folks. If there are any of y'all out there, I would love to chat and craft together.

Much Peace,
Tero

Or perhaps a trip to Alexandria to a Hoby Loby together?

Hey there Tero, i hate to burst your bubble but LA (NO aside) is miles from crafty central.  Undecided  I'm a bit above you up here in Natchitoches, but the view's not any better!

I think i'm only 30 or 45 minutes from you, actually. So if you ever come in for the christmas festival or just to feel like a tourist for a day, let me know and i'd be delighted to show you around town (and give you a place to park, too! not an easy feat.). We've got a few thrift shops and antique stores i've grown to love, but sadly we are lacking in otherwise crafty areas.

Oh, and i'd so be down for trips to hobby lobby! There are a few crafty places in Eleck i have yet to explore.

I'm from Diridder. about 15 minutes from you and well it is a craft waste land down here.  I have resigned myself to getting stuff on line and that is pretty much it. I am sorry you are having a hard time finding people on base that craft!

I know it's been awhile Tero, but we are out here.  Wish I would have seen your post months ago.  Sad

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

I'm moving to port allen in July, relatively far away from alexandria, and it's disappointing that there is not a good craft club around. 

I think I might assemble one.

I would love to be included in your little crafty family. What sorts of crafts do you ladies do? I have been here two years now and am still looking for crafty friends to swap ideas, supplies and labors of love with. Smiley
