Hello folks.  This is my first post on here, although I've been lurking for some time.

I've been thinking about starting a group of people who would get together and share crafty ideas, teach each other new things, etc.  There seem to be lots of opportunities for knitters to get together and hang out, but not everyone knits.  

I want to meet people in the DC Metro area who are into making stuff, and doing it seriously, not neccessarily for a living, but not just LJ kids reconstructing band tee-shirts.  (not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Anyone game?

Absolutely.  I'm already part of a little group that gets together once in a while, but most of them are knitters and none of them are really doing it as more than a pastime, except maybe 1 who's done a few craft fairs.  I'd love to form a group where we could get together and "talk shop."  Wink  As someone who does this full time, it gets frustrating not to be able to actually get together and talk with other serious crafters unless I'm already at a fair.

In my opinion, the best way to do this would be to get people to join the DC Craft Sellers Meetup.  I've been trying to get people to join for a while but there still aren't enough members to have an actual meetup, so it always gets cancelled.  And people keep joining the Montgomery County and NoVA ones instead, so none of the chapters end up with enough members.

(Not that I'm bitter.)  Wink

Maybe we can get a whole bunch of Craftster people to join up?  That'd rock.

We should just have a big old Craftster party/swapmeet/show and tell. 

Everyone could bring a small craft to give out, with printed instructions, and one sample for everyone.  Nothing too fancy, just something quick and under $5 to make. 

Also, everyone could bring pictures or examples of some of the bigger/more complicated things they make. 

It would be a party, as well as an opportunity to network and learn new things.
