The next knitting/general crafting meetup is due to be at 11am on March 8th. The only wrinkle? Yelp suggests Coffeed is still closed, if not deceased, and I don't think we're totally thrilled with the Starbucks, so we should think about a location. [more inside]
Time marches onwards... It's the usual drill. Your portable craft, coffee and chat. All crafts (or even none) welcome. [more inside]
I dropped to ball on December, but let's get going again in January. Same as usual: Coffeed, Chelsea, all crafts welcome. (To be clear, if you want to come hang out in a coffee shop for ~2 hours while people knit/craft, that is also fine.) [more inside]
