Topic Atlanta SnB / Craft Group Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

By divasteph On 02/05/04  

I am not an everyday poster over here I am normally hanging at but i thought i would come in and talk just a little about the Craft Group / SnB in Atlanta, GA.

We are a group of about 20 people (we had our first meeting last night and there were 5 however there has been a large interest so i assume we will see more as the weeks go by) we are going to start meeting 2 times a month.
For right now we are sponsored by Michael's of Dunwoody which is providing the location, my company Violet Designs which is organizing it, providing web space, and snacks, and Sublime Stitching which is providing some materials.

I had a great time with those that came out -I know at least 1 of them is a member of this board so i wanted to thank you kate and i can't wait for the next time --- I am pondering the 18th or 25th (the 25th is Ash Wed - do you think that will effect anyone?). The pictures from last night are up on the "site"

here is a little taste...

Please contact me with suggests and comments on what you thought of last night - I really enjoyed it!
