Anybody for joining a crafter group in the Memphis area? 

I know there's a Knit Mafia Group (and I happen to know they meet at Republic Coffee on Tuesdays at 6:30pm), but they claim to be closed to new members. 

What about a general crafting group? 

What about picking a Friday or Saturday of the month (like the last Fri/Sat of the month) to meet?  Like a Crafts Night Out?!

While I'm not opposed to midtown, what about someplace like the Borders at Pop & Kirby, with the convenient Swanky's taco shop next door (beer, margeritas!)?

did you guys ever get a group started?  I can't believe that a group is 'closed to new members'  that's sad.

I am in Oxford.

I'm new to Memphis, sort of.

Would y'all be horribly offended if I crashed your group once I'm back?

Works for me! What's where? Maybe a craft store would let us crash in their back room?

Well i know that there's a scrapbook stores in the Bartlett area, but since i've only been in a handful of times, I doubt they'd let us invade. But you never know. Failing that, Michael's and fabric stores usually have spaces. Maybe someone could buddy up to a manager? Failing that, there has to be a coffee shop that we can all pick.

Are we all meeting up to gab about projects or are we showing them off/suggesting new ones too?
I'm in the process of packing to move down there, so I'm trying to plan on what to shove in the car. Besides the cat and sewing machine, of course!

see i do not have a fabric store i use, i have been using hancock lately but not long enough to make friends, i hate to admit it but i used to just buy at wal-mart, i know we could meet at taco bell though because they know and love me lmao, i like the coffee shop idea! and i figure we can do all of what you said and if someone  needs help (probably me) with a project we can bring it and ask Smiley so do yall want to make like a sign up list and just edit the post when new people come?

That's probably a good idea. That way we know how large of an area to colonize!

There's also Wine and Cheese night at Seize the Clay, which now has real pottery glazes (as opposed to lovely, but very brightly colored paint-style glazes).  Hrm.  Maybe I should have said traditional!  I meant no offense!  Embarrassed

They provide some cheese and nibbles, you provide BYOWine and can bring other food.  The sitting fee is $3.50 (covers the glazes/paints for however long you paint) + whatever piece you decide to paint ($6-$60).

Oh, and I should have said, it's always on Fridays.  I think they have a FB account, but I am not on FB, so I can't be sure.  Smiley

I know I'm a couple of months behind in this post, I'm new here, but I would LOVE to get in on this, or even help organize something like this. I'm in the Midtown area and my buddy and I are always looking for crafting fun time! Sooooo... hopefully someone here will reply and we can get a non exclusive craft group going.
Hoping to hear from anyone in the near future....

Hi- I had posted on this a while ago and then got caught up in things... I am still interested in getting together if you all have already started.  I actually work at the scrapbook store in Bartlett  Grin so I am sure they wouldn't mind if we used the space.  It is a large back area with tables, and as long as theres no class going on, they let people come in and use the space.  I also saw the post about the Indie Market and am going to find out about that.  This coming year I'd really like to get my crafting on!  I will ck back soon (not in 6 mos like last time... Roll Eyes  )

I'm in Midtown, and I would also be interested in a craft group!  I play around with sewing, painting, stained glass, and whatever else I can get in to.  I love learning how to make things...just about anything!  I'm about to take a knitting class at Yarniverse and maybe some pottery classes at church.  I like taking community classes at MCA, but they are pretty expensive.  So, if anyone knows of any cheaper craft classes, please let me know!
