I was looking at the other topics and noticed that a few craftsters wanted to get to together for a local craft group in Gainesville. The last post date on that forum was back in Dec. 2008.
Anyways, what I'm wondering is, is there a craft group in Gainesville? I really would love to have some crafting buddies.

And if there isn't, would anyone like to start one?

I know it's been a while since this was posted, but I hope you're still around! I was actually trying to organize a craft group through livejournal last fall, but that fell through due to my job and lack of time. I have a lot more time on my hands now (thanks, layoff!) and am trying to come up with ideas again and see if I can work this thing out. But even if this doesn't work out as a "group" thing I'd still love to meet some other craftsters in the area. I moved here a year ago to be closer to my boyfriend and still don't know a lot of people. I'm mostly into sewing and reconstructing clothes. I know some basic knitting and would like to learn more. I've dabbled in cake decorating and screenprinting in the past (my boyfriend runs a screenprinting shop and his business partner's wife is a professional cake decorator so they have me beat there). Let me know if you're still interested!

There are indeed a lot of crafty types in Gainesville, but to my knowledge, there still isn't a formalized group that meets. I keep thinking about trying to organize one, but just haven't carved out the time amidst the other things I do.

The good news is that we are having an indie craft show here in Gainesville this fall! GLAM Indie Craft Show will take place Sunday, Dec. 5 from 1-5pm at the Thelma Boltin Center. Even if you aren't sure you're ready to sell your creations at a show, it's a blast to just come and hang out with other crafty types. All the crafters last year raved about how great it was to meet other cool crafters. Plus we're having a DJ and yummy food for sale, so it's a great way to spend an afternoon.

If you're interested in being a vendor, applications are being accepted through the month of September via http://glamcraftshow.com/apply. Apply early, since spaces are limited.

I haven't checked here in a long time so sorry for the delay, but I did actually start up a craft group over the summer and we're doing really well! We've got members who knit, crochet, sew, scrapbook, make hula hoops, and pretty much anything else you can imagine. You can join us on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid=135081733171108 and make sure to "like" our page (http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Gainesville-Area-Craftsters/148832778479896) if you want to get updates in your news feed.

We meet the first and third Tuesday of each month from 6-8pm at Coffee Culture. Occasionally we meet at the Millhopper Library for bigger projects (basically anything that involves lugging in a sewing machine). Come join us!
