Hello!

My friend Brandy and I have re-started a crafting group called Crafty Geek! We are the crafting arm of the Geek Partnership Society, who puts on Sci-Fi convention CONvergence every July.

There are two points to Crafty Geek and they are 1. Meet new people and 2. Learn new crafts. We are meeting weekly on Thursdays at 7 pm, and will also have one meeting a month devoted to learning a new craft. Our next new craft meeting is Thursday Sept 9 and we will be doing LEGO crafting. On October 7 we will be making masks! Meetings in between will generally involve food and hanging out and making stuff. Smiley Also, if you want to come to the "new craft" meetings but not participate in the craft, that is fine because we like company and *someone* has to help us eat all those cookies!

Email us at craftygeekmn@gmail.com or have a looksie at our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Crafty-Geek/124592694253781?ref=ts) for directions and more calendars and stuff. Hope to see you soon!

I was just coming to this board to post about the group and here you had already done it a month ago! It has been really fun, but we definitely need more people on board. Last week there were way too many of your delicious cookies that went uneaten.

Oh man, I work on Thursday nights  Sad
I would love to meet some local Craftsters. Maybe one of these nights I'll see if I can sneak my way over to the group.

Big fan of Convergence by the way - I was in the Dealer Room this past year!

No way! We probably saw you there and didn't even know... It was my very first time going this year, and now I can't imagine doing anything else that weekend Smiley

We should try and get another MN craftster meetup happening independent of this... before it gets too cold and we all go into hibernation again!

Milik, I did have that thought while I was sitting at Con - "I wonder how many of these people I've interacted with online" - mostly meaning Craftster, haha.

(I also work at Crafty Planet in NE and I know I recognized a lot of people just from that!)

I would love to get a MN meetup going - definitely before hibernation!
