I'm in Watertown (just outside Cambridge) and I'd be down for maybe doing a crafty meet up if anyone wanted!  I'd offer up my house if anyone wants to come pretty much anytime.  We're right on the bus line.

I'm in for a crafty meet up! Moving in 9 days! I'm a little excited. And once i get settled in my apartment I'd be up for hosting a crafty meet up as well. I'm right off the green line at packard's corner.

Awesome guys!! Smiley
Looking forward to crafting with others! I need to make a t-shirt: "Crafts Well With Others". Maybe some scissors on the bottom?  I'll get on that!

I just found out that I'll be moving in 2 1/2 weeks instead of 1 1/2 months! I'm nervous, but excited at the same time! I can't wait to get together with some of you guys and start crafting, I just have to get there, find a place to live (I'm staying with friends until I find a place), and get a job first...

Ohh very exciting. I'm moving in 2 days and am looking for a job currently. But I'm ready to be crafting in my own place again! Can't wait to meet up with fellow crafters!!

I'm excited too!  Crafting by myself is cool and all, but it's always nice to get inspiration from others! Smiley

Edited to say:  If anyone needs help getting around or looking for good coffee shops or quilt shops or even just getting from place a to place b, certainly let me know!  I'm not sure where everyone is moving from, but I offer my help if anyone needs it!

Oh my gosh! I don't think my Saturn can make it from Asheville NC to Boston MA hauling a trailer, so I decided to pack up my stuff and ship it on two pallets (we get really good freight rates where I work), and as I was looking at them after they had been packed, I realised that at least 1/3 of it is craft supplies...
I'm leaving a week from Wednesday (if everything goes as planned), and I can't wait to meet you guys and start crafting!

Where are the fabric stores? Or at least the ones accessible by non-driving people. Maybe i haven't been looking in the right places. There seems to be a dearth of yarn stores too.

Not sure about fabric stores, but there's Windsor Yarn in downtown crossing, a couple in Cambridge, one in Brookline Village(? - I know it's Brookline  Cheesy ), Stitch House in Dorchester, Snow Goose in Milton (not sure if it's T-accessible), Sheep Street in Canton (commuter rail accessible), Dee's Nimble Needle in Walpole (not T-accessible, might be on the commuter rail)

And Stitches East is in Hartford CT next weekend - about 2 hrs away. I don't know if it's by an Amtrak station or not though.
