We are now meeting every Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at The Grand Tavern in Oakland!
Meet fellow Crochet, Knitting, and Sewing enthusiasts in the area! Fiber artists of all skill levels are invited for a cup of tea, a friendly conversation, and plenty of support and help with their work. Every Tuesday night from roughly 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. We've been going strong for over four years now, and we know you will enjoy our group! We have a ton of regular members who don't RSVP on-site anymore so the group is usually between 10 and 15 people at least!
If you're wondering why we charge a membership fee, here is the breakdown:
1. The website fee: I have been putting this on my credit card for a long time and I'd like to not have to worry about it anymore. This site costs between 12 and 19 dollars per month depending on how far in advance I can pay, and that really adds up!
2. Our new location is a very different animal from where we were before. The cafe situation was ideal but now that we are in a pub I'd like to be able to leave a tip for our waiters each time, and have a little money on hand in case there are any bill-paying anomalies that need attention.
3. I'd like for us to have a booth at a fiber fair again this year, and I think it would be awesome to have it be "free" for everyone that wants to participate.
4. Lastly, I'm sure I'd throw even more S&B special events and use any money left over for goodies for us all! It's a small price to pay for the amount of community and lasting friendship we have all been getting out of it. ^_^
