Alright so I've been curious about this for quite a bit. I've been thinking of starting a crafty group, but honestly I can't do it alone. I've seen the threads started here and then just dying off into nothingness. I live in Monroe, which is 1 hour away from Charlotte. I've been searching forever for a nearby crafty group but so far I've had no luck, most of them are so far away that it'd be unrealistic and a burden to drive the distance. Ideally I'd like the crafty group to take place in Monroe, but I know there might be people interested that live closer to Charlotte. The group will be open to all crafts, be it jewelry making to sewing plushies. That's why I'm calling it a crafty group, most of the other groups I've seen are specifically for one element.

If this goes well, I like the idea that we'd be able to host a craft show because those are somewhat hard to find in NC. (Most of the ones I've seen are run by churches and well, I'd rather keep the locations more....open if you know what I mean). But that's a long term goal.

I'm currently a student and I'm socially awkward and shy, this is mostly why I need a second person I could depend on. Preferably outgoing and whatnot, oh and dedicated. I can't have someone skipping out on me and the group, you need to commit. I can't use my house as a meeting area, so if anyone has a place they can share with the group, be it house or public location, then that'd be super awesome.

Ideas so far:
---Online meeting period. This would be a period where we just get comfortable with each other.
---"Advertising". Tell friends, family, etc about the group. That way we get interested people to join.
---Half-way meeting point. Depending on how spread out we are.

If I get just a few people interested in this that'll be fine. We'll just get to know each other and maybe hang out sometime. We can become friends. ^_^ It doesn't even need to be an official group thing. Either way, thanks for reading!
