In one of my swaps, it was mentioned that there are a TON of crafters that live around here [I'm in Toledo]...& I have "grown" craft wise over the past few years. Thanks to everyone here at craftster. I think it would be totally awesome if after the holidays we could have something where we all get together & craft. maybe learn something new? 0or it could be a regular thing? just a thought Smiley

I live in Toledo and I work at the Hancock Fabrics on Monroe St. I just posted another thread about the classes that I am teaching there, but I think that the classroom would be a good place to meet if enough people are interested in doing so. It is not a huge room but there are banquet tables and chairs and plenty of plugs. I would be happy to teach a few sewing, crafting, or fiber art techniques and I think it would be a great way to network. We may all have to chip in $1 to give to the store for electricity and such, but I think it would be much fun!

I had a super idea while I was wandering around at work today. If we can get more people together we should do a swap! Other than of course swapping tips we could bring our our old or unwanted fabric, craft supplies, notions, etc. I went to a fabric swap when I was first learning to sew (I was about 10 and everyone there was 50+!) and it was SO much fun. Maybe some initiative like a swap will get more people to join us!

lol that'd be great; except...i dont really have anything to swap. i don't really have a "stash". My stash is mainly just stuff [armor etch, paint, etc] things like that. i'd love a fabric swap though. i dont have hardly any fabrics. I generally buy it as i need it or someone gives me fabric that totally isnt my style at all. RIGHT NOW, I have quite a bit of stuff BUT It'll all be used up for the 12 days of christmas swap & the holidays...i think i should save up a couple hundred dollars & just go on a fabric/yarn buying frenzy. lol

Ooh, I would love to meet some local craftsters!  I'm in a craft-funk and could use some motivation... and what better way to get motivated than to meet other craftsters?

If anyone is watching this thread or is interested, I am going to have a free fabric design demo at the Hancock fabrics store on Monroe Street in the Starlight Plaza on Monday November 24th at 6pm. This was originally going to be a $30 class, and this may be the only time I offer it as a free demo so come by and check it out. If you can make it send me a message about days and times that would be best for you. I am trying to get as much feedback as possible on my classes and everything helps!
