    For the DC-area Craftrons...

    I organize a bi-weekly (or thereabouts) craft night, craft/work connexion, in which we make stuff that you can take home that night.

    The idea: I know a ton of people who make cool stuff, and everyone would ask us "where'd you get that?" I figured it would be much more cool if instead of asking, you did it yourself. And of course, it's great for networking with other crafters and artists.

    So this way, we switch off and teach each other how to make things, hang out, eat snacks and drink beers. Pretty low-key and cool. The idea is to get enough stuff made to have a c/w/c table at Eastern Market by the end of the summer.

    Past topics: knit-a-thon, erotic shrinky-dinks, magnets, earrings, felt

    Upcoming topics: sew-a-thon, restroying (recycling & destroying) old records, booze makin', collage stationery, spinning, printmaking, soap, more jewelry

    Check out the newsgroup or write to me!

    I want to move to DC!

    I've been trying to get the same thing going here in Indianapolis Area. Admittedly, it's just been all talk on my end since the idea came because i've been so busy with the last of my scheduled weddings (DJ biz), custom orders (bag biz), and kids needing to be different places all day long (summertime!). Once they go back to school in a month, i'm going to be pushing really hard to start a group like your DC one!

    Have fun!

    start a craft group!

    Yay! Pam, you should definitely totally fer sure start up a craft group.

    It surprises and amazes me how excited people get about making stuff. I mean, I started this as kind of a selfish "ooh I wanna learn more stuff," but it's growing beyond my imagination. Sounds corny, but it's really cool to see people get so into it, and how they come up with new ideas and bring people each time.

    I feel like I'm in the art hut at camp each time we do stuff. It's heaven!

    Good luck!

    tutorials/instructions on the list

    Hi Alexandra,

    That's been the idea, although no one's gotten around to it yet. I have to get the polaroids of the stuff scanned, blah blah, the dog ate my homework. Basically, I'm an oaf when it comes to this.

    But you're right. It should be done.

    Hey! What a great idea. I am down in NC and I might pop by if I am visiting DC when y'all meet sometime. It sounds really wonderful.
