If you knit or crochet, there are a lot of get togethers around town. There is a group of people that I sometimes join on Thursday nights at the Duck and Decanter on Camelback. If you live downtown, check out Conspire on 5th St and Garfield. It's a craft collaborative, and I think that they have open hang-out time some evenings. You could swing by there tonight for ArtWalk! I also belong to a meetup group, but there haven't been any get-togethers lately. http://craftswap.meetup.com/13/

I belong to a group called The PHUCS, the PHoenix, United Crafting Society. We meet at each other's houses for pot luck and crafting. We also plan group field trips (art openings, roller derby, First Friday, museums, film screenings, etc) and support each person's endeavors. We all learn from and teach each other. Many of us were inspired by The Austin Craft Mafia, but are not affiliated with any mafia groups here in PHX.

If you're interested send me an email and I'll let you know next time we get together.

Hi, let me first say, welcome to the Valley Of The Sun! or as my younger brother says, "Valley ON the sun" XD I live in Glendale too, but more in the area where Glendale/Peoria/Pheonix kinda blend together. More specifically over by the Banner Hospital on Thunderbird. I could still be a crafty buddy though :) my myspace doesnt have a url (lack of decisiveness on my part) but if you ever need to chat my username is @>%---Angie

thanks angie. thanks to everyone for the responses. i was thinking if anyone would like to do a casual monthly get together and share our craft ideas and abilities? would anyone be down to do something like this? i personaly am learning to sew (so for so good) im learning to knit (not so good) and i know how to crochet, i make wind schemes and sock monsters too. it would be great to have everyone bring a project to work on and just share and enjoy some company. if anyone is interested id love to get a group together and schedule something
