I recently got together with some friends to start an informal weekly craft group, or “stitch and bitch” as one participant calls it. The cosy surroundings and good chat lends itself well to trying new things and meeting new people.
While these kind of groups are about socialising, some work does get done. It’s interesting to see what crafts people are into and at what level of skill they’re at.
CINCH, our community directory, lists local craft groups that you could attend.
Often we are looking for time out from our busy lives to do something just for ourselves. Consider starting your own craft group with your friends. No experience necessary.
