I didn't read you post correctly, sorry!

As for the meeting, a weekend day sounds good to me but my classes are a bit heavy at the moment. I'll keep you posted and let you know when things level out.
I don't really know aberdeen so i'm kinda clueless about coffee shops and the like...

Same with me, I don't really have my final timetable for the term yet, which sucks. Sad

My flatmate showed me a really nice place on Sunday where we might meet if nobody suggests another place, it's called Books and Beans and it is on Belmont Street near Union Street. It is part caf / part bookshop - they sell fairtrade coffee and used books for like 1-4 Pounds. And to top it of, they have a 10% student discount. I think I'll be a regular at that place. Smiley Now I have to check out the craft shops here.

Ooooh, never been there, I will have to have a look.
As for craft shops be sure to check out the little place in the aberdeen market, it's just down from topshop. It's the first shop as you go in on the right, looks like it sells nothing but wool but it sells a bit of everything.

Maybe we should think about november sometime?
I was also wondering what we would talk about, it could get all weird with silence...

Ooh, thanks for the tip, I will check that place out! Smiley

I don't know, I've never been to a crafter meetup (except for with people I was friends with already, but I guess that doesn't count). I thought maybe people could bring a project-in-progress to show around, and maybe everybody could get a little crafting done while chatting? I think that if your hands are busy, the silence would be less awkward. Maybe we could even to a communal crafting project, I've done group paintings in the past, and that was always fun. What do you think?

I haven't been to a meet up either!
Despite the fact theres about 20 ladies in my class none of them seem to be into crafts, weird!
I think taking along a project would be the best option and then once we get to know everyone we could discuss a group project!

I'm looking forward to it Smiley

That sounds like a plan, even if it might only be the two of us! Smiley

What sorts of crafts do you do, is there anywhere I could look at your craftings? I've mostly done stencilling for the past year (which you can view here if you like - www.flickr.com/photos/krina_  ), I enjoy the occasional paper crafting and have tried to get into sewing. I made curtains for my bedroom which turned out okay, but it was a pretty easy project. I started making a skirt, but I sort of abandoned that project because I didn't really know what I was doing. Unfortunately, I don't have a sewing machine here with me and probably won't get my hands on one until I go home for Christmas. (In my family, it's my father and not my mother who owns the sewing machine - my father once sewed a fabulous circus tent for me to play with when I was a child. I think he made more things for me, but I can't think of them right now.)

Hey even if it is just us it would be cool.

I'm into sewing, I have made a few bags and have started a blog, I don't update as often as I should but thats college getting in the way.
I like paper related crafts too but sewing is my main interest.

I checked out your blog and I like it!!! I wish I could do things like that. Maybe you could teach me a thing or two about sewing. I feel sort of intimidated by my non-skills in sewing, maybe I should should just get a pile of old fabric and get started.

I've figured out my timetable for the most part now - at least I know which classes I'll be taking, although I don't have all my extra-curricular activities figured out yet, but I'm getting there. I still think that a weekend day would be best for a meetup. Are you in Aberdeen, or do you live / work / study outside of the city? Keep me updated on your workload and when you're free for a meetup.

Well I'm not sure how much I can pass on, I can like stick two bits of fabric together but all my clothes making ventures have kinda failed thus far. Starting with old bedsheets from charity shops is a good idea, it's cheap, your recycling and it's not intimidating!
A weekend day would be fine, I live in Fraserburgh but I have a uni-rider so travelling isn't a problem.
I'm just wondering how to get more people interested, not that it's not going to be fun just us two!
I'm glad you like my site, my dad is currently making my very own design for my blog, It was pretty easy to set up!

Hope all is well

I know this post is old but thought I'd chip in - there are are a couple of craft shops down Holburn way, including Holburn Crafts which leans more towards paper/knitting type crafts rather than sewing but worth a look...
