We just moved to North Berwick in Novemember '07, from (horribly foggy, ridiculously expensive) San Francisco.  I love, love, love our new home.  But I have met very few people, as I'm not working much yet, and my husband works at home.  My best friends are the gang at the Transfer Station, whom I see every week. Grin  So, I would really enjoy meeting other craftsters in Southern Maine.  Let's be in touch!

kleinsch - there's a gallery opening at Ello in Portsmouth on State St. on Friday night. They have art shows, but also sell crafty diy-er type goods and zines. Thought you might be interested, because that's kinda close! If you go, and you see me there say hello! I look like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/geekxnerd/sets/72157601845540976/

Darn, I would love to go out Friday night, but I have a huge standardized test I have to take on Saturday morning at UNH.  (My California teaching certification does not transfer to Maine, so I have to take about $400 of Praxis tests...bleh!!  Especially considering I took the same tests in California. What a rip off.)
But, usually Friday nights are free around here, so I'll make plans for next time.

I am from central Maine (near Augusta) . . . although I don't get out much except for work and stuff for the kiddos.

I can empathize with the expensive tests.  It is almost like the state of Maine asks me to take a new one each year!

Whew, that test is now done!   Smiley Three more to go...next one is in April.  I am spending the rest of today crocheting and scrapbooking.  (I actually detest scrapbooking, but I have to make one for a special 13 year-old.  I made one for her sister when she turned 13, so I can't very well get out of this one.) 

Do any crafters in Southern Maine have much experience with ripple crochet stitches?  I found a pattern that looks lovely, but I can't seem to get it to increase/decrease as required by the pattern.  Huh I'm stuck, and feeling stranded out here in the boonies. 

PS: Will some long-time or native Mainers tell me when we will start to see buds on the trees?  This is my first Maine winter...

Not a hipster and only a wee bit crafty but i do live in Southern Maine. I live in Auburn. Moved here from Atlanta a couple years ago. Started making stuff to ease the boredom that accompanied that change in lifestyle. Would love to meet other creative types that understand my love hate relationship with glitter and my need to hoarde pretty fabric.
