Title: New Crochet/Knitting Group in Jacksonville
Post by: meelee514 on September 22, 2010 10:51:07 AM
Hello all!

I am a senior at Jacksonville University and am also an avid crocheter and beginner knitter. I am very interested in starting up a weekly, or bi-weekly crochet/knitting group in the area and was just looking to see if anyone would be interested in participating as well? I haven't worked out any of the specifics yet because I didn't want to fully invest all the time into looking for a location and all that if no one is interested.

But yeah, I was thinking of having it weekly and anyone could come whenever it fit their schedule. I had a "knit night" once a week at home and even though I was the youngest person there, by far, they were a ton of fun and we all learned a lot of new techniques and everything.

I would also be happy to help teach either if anyone is interested in that as well.

So if anyone is interested, or if anyone knows of one that is already out there, feel free to let me know and I'll go from there.

Thanks!

Also.. just for a quick mention.

I am a member of the Crochet Guild of America <http://www.crochet.org>, a non-profit organization, if I can get a crochet group together, I would be interested in starting our own chapter in the Jacksonville area since the only official chapters they have are located along the west and southern coasts. There is no fee to be a member of a chapter, so there wouldn't be any cost to anyone, and I would be happy to pass along the crafting discounts and stuff I get. :)
