I live in Hamilton Acres area near Birchwood homes/Trainer Gate and I do a lot of different crafts.  I knit, crochet, draw, watercolor paint, tatting, I started learning hardanger embroidery...  I am new at sewing and want to learn to quilt.  um..... I'm sure there's more..... beading....

Anyway, I am also the Project Linus Coordinator for the Fairbanks area if anyone wants to make blankets for kids who are in crisis.  Send me a message :O)

Cool!  I'm in Fairbanks too- out off Chena Pump Rd. 

I do some random stuff here and there.  Cross stitch, knitting, beading, some crochet from time to time, hand sewing (no sewing machine since I moved up here), fur sewing, a little bit of chain maille, and whatever else I can fit in the apartment basically!  I'm really into AK type wild things and animal stuff in my crafts.  Fair warning - some of my work really puts off people, especially if you're more of a city person.

I think either Northern Threads or Material Girls have some really neat quilting classes.  I can't remember which one does more basic starter stuff offhand.  My ex fiance's mom is very into quilting (but not expert level) and had fun at some of the classes! 

I'd love to do a quilt, but sadly am without a sewing machine or really the space to set one up.  Sad

What are you working on currently? 
I'm in a little bit of a craft hiatus.  The summer got really busy for me in a good way so I ended up getting out and away from my projects more often than not.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
