I see lots of threads asking about starting one, but I don't see anything ever actually done.  Maybe the discussion continued off the public forum?

I am very interested in finding a crafting group - for any type/s of crafts!  If there aren't any, I'm very interested in opening my home to it. 

Is there groups already meeting, and where?  If not, are there people interested in meeting?  Even if its just one other person, we can make it work!

A little about me: I'm in North Charleston, near Summerville.  I don't know many places in the Charleston area that cater to crafts, but not for lack of looking.  I'm always up for trying local shops for craft supplies.  I'd rank myself as a novice in all the areas I'm familiar with, which would be crocheting, sewing, jewelry/beading, and furniture "up-cycling"... I'm eager to learn more and to refine what I already know.

I don't know too much about craft meet ups.  I go to college down in Savannah, so I'm not around too much to hear of any, but I do know of one two places.  The first was where I took my first knitting class.  It is called Craft Happy in downtown Summerville.  There website has some information on nights (or mornings) where people come in and just sit around and knit or crochet.  It's a really nice place.  Another place, which I am not too familiar with, I just know of from researching on the internet, is the Palmetto Fiber Arts Guild.  Here is a link to their website.... http://palmettofiberartsguild.blogspot.com/
They have classes teaching all sorts of things from spinning wool to basketry and quilting.  It seems really interesting!

Anywho, that is all I have heard of!

I've been a shoeless cobbler for as long as i remember and i'm always having trouble staying put.

I live in Summerville.  A multi-craft group would be super!  My knitting/crochet group just got too busy for each other...Sad
And now I have carpel tunnel and can't knit anymore!  Sad

Most of the major art/craft categories in the Charleston area have established guilds that are really wonderful! I don't currently belong to any of them but know tons of people who do.  Check with your town's website (Summerville, or N. Charleston, or Mt. P) and definitely look at the City of Charleston website.  The Charleston artists guild is responsible for the annual Piccolo Spoleto art fair.  The Quilters Guild, Knitters Guild, Artists Guild, are all names that come to mind.

Another great place to look is the Recreation Center's website.  I live in Mt. P and there are all sorts of options available. Trident Tech, CofC, and the Continuing Ed programs through the Charleston County school system also offer some very interesting "classes" that could easily lead you to a group.

Just a few thoughts! Keep in touch and let us know what you find out.
