Hi guys! I'm really excited (and kinda proud to be honest) to announce I started a get-together for crafty gals in Seattle! I've been plotting & chewing on this for a long time and I finally jumped! Yay 2015! It wasn't a huge feat, we haven't even had the first meeting, but hey! I'm going for lots of small wins this year.
I chose to use Meetup.com simply because that website is the easiest forum I know of for finding like-minded people. When I first moved to Washington back in 2010 I knew no one. Correction: I knew Olive, my four-legged bestest buddy. Meetup was what got me out of my introverted solitude, not because I was all that unhappy in said state, but because I knew I wasn't even close to experiencing life or the beautiful PNW to its potential. I found a beer-lovers group which introduced me to many local breweries. Olive Oyl & I were also both members of a Hiking With Your Dog group.
The group name and curriculum is a play on the traditional "Stitch n' Bitch." With an element that may already be present, yet not represented. Combining two things very near and dear to my heart is Craft 'n Draft! *
More to come soon! I will be sharing easy craft ideas for groups, which seems to be a need out in the blogging realm, and other DIY projects soon!
*I've actually hit capacity for my group already! Wow. So excited to find out there's so many other people who are interested. I may upgrade my plan depending on demand. You have to pay to create a group on meetup.com, however there is NO fee to join & participate.
