There seem to be quite a few craftsters in the Fairfax, VA area. Would anyone be interested in meeting up for some coffee/tea/snacks and crafting? I live in Alexandria and would be happy to host! I'd love to meet some fellow crafters and make some new friends.

Sweet!! And perfect timing- it's getting warm out and I'm itching for a Craftsters bar-be-que.  Smiley  Will PM you and Jenicat to see if you're interested, and a couple of other craftsters I've met up with. Yay!!!

Reston is a great town! I lived there for 2 years when I first moved to the DC area.
We had a fun craftster's BBQ a couple weeks ago, and I'd totally be up for getting together again. Maybe for a crafty hang-out in early July? I love getting to know more swappers.  Smiley

Hi!
I live in Alexandria and would be interested in some meetups, I haven't had the chance to meet many people since moving back here.  I'm into knitting, crocheting & sewing. Love to bake too Smiley

I'm so happy to see so many craftsters in my area!! Would you guys be up for a crafty get-together in Alexandria in late-August or early-Sept.?

Oops...I guess if I am going to post things, I should at least log in and check my threads! Smiley

Yes, I think a crafty meeting of sorts would be great! Are any of you familiar with the Hand Maden Meet-Up group in the area? Here's the link: http://www.meetup.com/handmadens/calendar/

Ack! I have been horribly neglectful of this thread.  Embarrassed  So...anyone interested in meeting up at my place in Alexandria the last weekend in Sept. or second weekend in Oct., send me a PM! Once I know who's interested I'll coordinate the day and time. Hooray for new crafty friends!!  Cheesy

Does anyone want to do anything in January? We could all get together, get some lunch or go to a coffee shop, and craft our hearts out. Or maybe hit up a craft fair if there are any during January.

I would definitely be up for a crafty get-together! It's nice to finally have the holiday crafting-pressure off (well, techinically still one late gift to finish...but still...) I wanna craft some stuff for me  Grin

I meant to post a reply a lot sooner, but the holidays (and some fierce food poisoning) got the better of me. I think going to SugarLoaf would be a lot of fun. Which day(s) works best for you guys? Saturday would probably be the best day for me, but I'm not 100% sure yet. It all depends on how my school load is.

Sat. works for me! Who else is up for some craft gawking? Maybe meet around noon at the entrance? I have a cell and can PM my number to anyone else planning to go.

I was at SugarLoaf and missed you all.  Undecided It was disappointing for garment makers I think, too much quilting.

You missed us because we missed it.  I think we all chickened out in the snow.  Sorry it was disappointing though.  A few of us got together for some crafty shopping at a later date.  If we plan another outing, you should join us!

I've gone the last few years and it's always inspiring and a lot of fun! I will probably go mid-day/early afternoon if anyone wants to meet up Smiley
