I've been popping up in the Buffalo threads since I'm about 40 miles away, but I'd love to find people nearby.

I'm talking the way-south southtowns, right at the tri-county region: Arcade, Chaffee, Yorshire, Freedom, Machias, Delevan, Java Center, Bliss, Eagle, Warsaw, ect...right where Erie, Cattaraugus and Wyoming meet.  I live right in the town of Arcade; a very small walk brings me to the Arcade/Attica RR start.

There's a small craft store in town for quilting and sewing, but they also supply stuff for yarn crafts too.  I used to go to their monthly yarn meetup, but it's been getting pretty crowded, and I honestly do not relate to most of those who attend.  Just major age and background differences.  (I have nothing against age or anything else, but I am never able to talk while knitting and relate to what they speak about, and it's a bit awkward.)

I would like to meet other crafters in the area, especially knitters and crocheters.  I have a ton of donated yarn and would love to meet up with others to stitch up squares for the Warm Up America project (in case anybody is not working on any UFOs at the moment).  And if you like some of the yarn in my stash, you are welcome to take or trade...except for a few special skeins, heh.

I also know of a few second-hand stores who sell away a ton of yarn and needles for great prices (which is where most of my needles and some yarn came from) and would love to share such finds.

In short: anyone nearby who might be interested?

Also... here's a pic of my stash in question: http://i26.tinypic.com/5lytef.jpg

Okay they're scheduled to meet Saturday, July 25th from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m
at the library.... *Delevan*
There's a potluck lunch at 1 p.m. so bring a dish to pass and your place setting...

There's an @$$ortment of types of crafters there..
Scrapbooking, knitting, painting, quilting, etc..
*I haven't gone myself, always super busy...I've gone down and chatted a bit,
but somedays it's hard to haul ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL OF MY STUFF AROUND...

Anyhow, post here, if you want to show up..
I'll email the girl that runs it...
It's really a nice group, and an @$$ortment of ages I thought...

Do you go to the other craft store acrossed from the quilting store?
She's got a bunch of different stuff there...  scraping mostly, but a little bit
of everything..

Thank you very much for replying. Smiley  I remember going to the Delevan library a lot when I lived near California Hill RD.

My only main concern is transportation, but I think I will be able to manage it by the time the 25th rolls around.

So yes, if you can email the coordinator that would be great. Cheesy

Hmm.  I was going to, until the owner told me I'd be better off at Creekside Fabrics across the street, when I mentioned knitting.  I know Sandy (the owner) very well from the monthly yarn nights, but as I've said, it's packed and I am one of the only people there in their 20's. Embarrassed

It's a go...
I got the right date/time/place/info..
*I emailed her just to re~check*
Delevan Library, 11:00am~5:00pm, Pot Luck Lunch @ 1:00pm.
Bring any craft you'd like...

I did tell her you'd like to join in...
She said there is always room for more crafters!!

PM me the night before *or two* and see if I am going..
And even if I decide not to craft.. I'll stop by at the time you go....
*I have usually at any given time, kids, &/or a mother in tow
and an arm load of something to do  ~~~>never a dull moment at my house*
Anyhow, I'll introduce you to her and get the ball rolling..
I'm sure there'll be someone there with the same likes in crafting...

and don't forget to PM a little bit before... Wink
