Just taking a break from my sewing machine and wondering if I'm the only 20-something who stays home to craft on Friday/Saturday nights.  Social life after college is so fraught with peril that sometimes it just seems either this way!  I may be pathetic but at least I'll have something to show for it in the end, right  Wink

LOL I'm so silly...


If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

I would much rather go out in the week when it's quieter than on a Friday or Saturday when the city is full of drunken, vomiting idiots. I'm not into that drink-till-you're-sick culture at all, and I HATE crowds, so I too would rather be in front of the telly with a craft on my lap on a Friday or Saturday.
They can call me a nerd all they want, I'll be the one laughing when they end up needing liver transplants at 40.
You are not alone!

I'd like to join your club! I realized my situation when I decided that my preferred meeting time for a knit/crochet group was a friday or saturday night.

Last night (saturday) I spent a nice quiet evening doing laundry and crocheting. And thats exactly where I wanted to be.  Smiley

For the past couple of weekends I've been just staying in and crafting. It saves a ton of money (and sometimes makes me money) and it's nice just to relax at home sometimes.

Check my etsy site for GLOW-in-the-Dark Nightmare Snatcher journals and miniature Worry-Woolie notebooks:

Likewise please check Weirdling Works the Etsy shop for my collaborative work with my father, in illustration and writing:

me too!

but you wouldn't believe the attitude of some of my friends (who all heading for 30yrs old themselves!)

Why is it that it's somehow more acceptable to be out drinking or sitting mindlessly in front of the TV than it is to being making something useful or beautiful?

oh yeah. im just turned 20 and i way prefer crafting to going out :/
i just hate the whole 'lets go out every night, waste loads of money, get a horrid hangover the next day and then complain that we have no money and a horrid hangover' hah.
i find i enjoy myself so much more if the going out is occasional. doesnt get too samey, and i get to make so much more cool stuff, so when i do go out with my pretty new jewelery and hot bag everyones all 'woo look at that' and im all 'oh yeah i made it last night Cheesy' hahahah. because thats how it goes..

interested in personal swaps Smiley

Yep!  I do the same thing.  I used to go out and hang out with people, but it just gets old.  And no, most of them don't understand.  I think they think that crafting is a phase, and they don't understand or realize that most of us have been crafting a whole lot longer than we've been drinking.  Oh well, maybe we should start crafting hangover kits and directions for the cab driver, and them they might like us making stuff a lot more.

ROFL at the hangover kits idea, rozekitten. A fun joke might be to knit or sew somebody who took the mickey a new liver...

I agree that sitting at home (or with my boyfriend) watching a movie and crafting is an awesome Saturday night.

I do like to go out, spend money I can't afford to spend, stay up until dawn and very occasionally get drunk and have chips and candy parties on the living room carpet, but I don't do it very often so it never gets old and makes for a good break when I'm having creativity issues.

I often get grief for making the same decisions. Crafting is so fun and rewarding, so I don't understand the problem.

I just turned 25, btw.
