I started this group to get together with crafters in the Olympia area to crochet or knit and enjoy coffee/tea/cider/cocoa...cupcakes! There are some other nice groups a bit farther away but I thought it would be great to start a group for the local Olympia, Tumwater, and Lacey area.
I'm a beginner at crocheting but learning more all the time. All levels welcome, whether you're into knitting, crocheting, looms, or other crafts. We have two meetup locations:
*OLY Bonjour Cupcakes, in downtown Olympia, across from Sylvester Park. Yummy cupcakes and espresso, great location, beautiful shop. Meetups are Tuesday evenings.
*LACEY Bonjour Cupcakes in Lacey, near the Lacey Fred Meyer Gas Station. Meetups are Tuesday evenings.
Please make sure to RSVP for either group if you're attending, and cancel your RSVP if plans change. Thank you so much! I'm looking forward to meeting you and sharing ideas and showing off our projects :) Feel free to post a few photos of your finished project if you'd like to share, or email them to me and I'll add them to an album.
**Membership contributions are $2.00 monthly, and go towards the organizer fees. You can pay through the Meetup site, see me (Karolyn) at a meetup or send them through paypal to my payment address firstname.lastname@example.org - it's a zero in the middle.
**Membership is for local folks, not for out of area solicitors, thanks.
**Please leave uncomfortable personal/family topics at home so that members feel welcome to join in the conversations. Thanks! :)
**Local craft/fabric stores and youtube.com are great places to go for classes and short video tutorials, if you have yet to learn the basic crocheting/knitting basics.
