Stands for Crafty Underground NeTwork. I know, har har.
So I posted in the SnB thread and thought I'd start a new thread since there's no response yet (and I'm antsy!) :)
My friend from LiveJournal and I have decided to officially start up a new crafty group. Not focusing just on knitting, but any sorts of (portable) crafts.
We'll meet rotating Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons, figuring that with frequency, a) more people will probably be able to attend one or the other, if not both and b) people won't lose interest since it won't just be a monthly thing!
First meeting is going to be at my house this Thursday, January 15th, from 7pm-9pm, in Lakeview. The next meeting will be at Heather's in Edgewater, Saturday January 24th at 3pm.
Basically, it'll be a cozy space to chat, work on a variety of projects, learn from each other, etc. We won't have any set projects to start off, so people can just bring whatever craftiness they'd like to work on. This group will sort of be an alternative to the standard knitting-focused SnB or the dictated project-driven type groups. We're playing this by ear, so far!
We created a Yahoo Group, so people can keep up with when the next meetings are, ask questions, whatever:
And for LiveJournalers, we also created a community on there:
(I am, not surprisingly, luckychere on LJ as well)
And of course I'll post updates here.
So please consider joining us for some craftiness!! Email me if you've got any questions at luckychere @ hotmail.com. There's also more info posted in the Yahoo group, including my address/phone number (didn't want to post that publicly on here...).
Hope some of you Chicago Gliterrati will be interested! :)
