I live in the J-hell area and over the past few years, every craft group that gets started, stops just as quickly. I have relegated myself to boring my husband with my projects. ha ha

I would like to give a craft group a try nonetheless.  I'm sure I would appreciate your projects without getting bored. Wink

Anybody else want to join?

Hello all,
I am new to craftster, not to J-ville. I have lived here for 16 years. It's def better than it once was. I do all sorts of crafts, mostly sewing, but have my little hands into everything. I am also a hairstylist. I really love to use old junk and give it new life. Love this site!!!

hey, i grew up in jville (barf)  i've lived their my whole life (my family is not military).

i moved away about 7 years ago to go to school though.  i still visit pretty often because my mom is still out there and my bf lives in new bern (long distance relationship ftl Sad )  i loved the thrift store that was mentioned in the opening post!  i got pretty much all my dishes from there when i went away to school and i still have them all!  only one plate broke.  the place is pretty huge too and had a lot of neat things to look through.

another favorite place of mine is the goodwill on western.  they have TONS of clothes to sift through.. i attribute it to the military families constantly moving in and out and donating a lot of their things before they leave.

i'm coming home this weekend and i plan to work on a quilt for my bf for vday, so i'll be hitting up the fabric store in new river.... i'll probably stop in new river pottery because i have a hard time driving by without stopping   Cheesy

I will be moving to the area in a few months, and I am absolutely delighted to see that there are other crafters and I'm totally interested in forming a group Smiley

I'll be leaving all my friends behind in this area, so I need to meet new people!! Smiley  It would be great to be all creative with other people!

I do: Polymer clay minatures, Polymer clay beads, Beadweaving, Jewelry, Stone cutting (Cabachons) and wirework.  I will be doing: Stone cutting (faceted), Pottery, Silver and Glass work.

Personal swaps welcome Smiley

Hi.. I live in J-ville and where is the thrift store that was in the opening post?

Also, that thrift store on base throws away ALOT of stuff in the dumpsters around back. I have seen other people going threw it and you will not even believe some of the things that they pulled out!
