1  New York / New York: West / Craftsters in the southtowns? on: July 15, 2009 05:32:34 PM
I've been popping up in the Buffalo threads since I'm about 40 miles away, but I'd love to find people nearby.

I'm talking the way-south southtowns, right at the tri-county region: Arcade, Chaffee, Yorshire, Freedom, Machias, Delevan, Java Center, Bliss, Eagle, Warsaw, ect...right where Erie, Cattaraugus and Wyoming meet.  I live right in the town of Arcade; a very small walk brings me to the Arcade/Attica RR start.

There's a small craft store in town for quilting and sewing, but they also supply stuff for yarn crafts too.  I used to go to their monthly yarn meetup, but it's been getting pretty crowded, and I honestly do not relate to most of those who attend.  Just major age and background differences.  (I have nothing against age or anything else, but I am never able to talk while knitting and relate to what they speak about, and it's a bit awkward.)

I would like to meet other crafters in the area, especially knitters and crocheters.  I have a ton of donated yarn and would love to meet up with others to stitch up squares for the Warm Up America project (in case anybody is not working on any UFOs at the moment).  And if you like some of the yarn in my stash, you are welcome to take or trade...except for a few special skeins, heh.

I also know of a few second-hand stores who sell away a ton of yarn and needles for great prices (which is where most of my needles and some yarn came from) and would love to share such finds.

In short: anyone nearby who might be interested?

Also... here's a pic of my stash in question: http://i26.tinypic.com/5lytef.jpg
