Hey, I'm in Edinburgh too!  I make kids clothes.

I'd maybe be interested in a craft group, did you find anyone else?

Hello!
I'm an edinburgh crafty girl - and there sure are heaps of us around Smiley although I know of no general craft group, there are regular SnB meetups - there is a yahoo group for them here:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cityknitty/summary
It's not just for knitters, we have crocheters and embroiders along as well - but it's probably as good a place as any to meet crafty people - we're very friendly!

I'm new to Craftster but from Edinburgh and would be up for making a craft group.

I need to stop stitching infront of the TV and talk to people. :]

Me too!!!

I've been thinking of starting up a group on meetup.com but maybe we can start it here? I've not written on a thread before and not sure if we get sent noticfications of updates (as in facebook)? Or if we can send people PMs? I do a bit of quilting but would love to learn to sew more shapes, applique techniques, embroidary, dressmaking.

So I guess we need a venue...maybe a cafe/pub to start with so we can get to know each other then perhaps move to someone's living room?

I live in Leith so somewhere around there would suit me but we can make it more central if need be.

And a day that suits people (weekday evening for a couple of hours or sat/sun 1/2 day?) and how often? weekly, monthly?

I guess this is a busy time of year for everyone so how about we start off in the new year? Say mid January?

Let me know your ideas and interests.

Ok, thanks to some suggestions I have set up a Facebook Group called Edinburgh Crafsters. It's all pretty basic just now but I will work on it and try and make it funky. Facebook have changed how groups work and I think you should now be getting updates to your own page so can keep up with it all. Any suggestions/observations welcome.

Please join this group and we can discuss where and when we will meet.

I have made it a closed group meaning you need to request to join. I did this as I guess we may be discussing where we live, in the future maybe events at our homes so I for a start feel safer if this info is limited.

Peach.

Woo. I'm going to join when I get home.
I think after christmas is a good idea. It means we can throw some ideas around and everyone will be busy around this time any way.

Closed group is a good idea. It would e really fun to have it in peoples homes at some point :]

My friend helps organise a knitting night at Sofi's bar in Leith.  I went for the first time yesterday and am planning on going again next week - it's a great atmosphere, just a bunch of lovely people with their projects looking for a chat and a nice cup of hot choc! I may even bring some sewing with me next time...

If anyone is interested in coming I believe it's 7:30 PM every Tuesday, in the back room.

Hi, I'm sorry for posting in a old thread, I couldn't find in the rules if there is a cut off date for old threads (if there is I'm sorry for posting here) - all the other forums I am on have one.

I am based in Leith and am teaching myself to crochet (about 3 weeks in), I'm doing ok at the moment on the basic stitches. My current profile picture is of my first teddy in a dress which I made myself in a evening.

I would like to find a group in Edinburgh, but I can't do Tuesdays - I fence then.

Hello,
I'm not sure if your group ever got together but I'm responding as I and a friend are soon going to be visiting Edinburgh for a week in June.  I hope to find fabric and yarn stores and would appreciate any help in identifying such.  Can you, or any of your friends be of help?  Thanks in advance.
