How did you learn about this group?

What new craft skills do you want to learn?

making tight wire connections for beading and picking up dropped stitches when knitting


I have been collecting beads, yarn and fabric for years and the time has come for me to do something with them. I love the idea of working on projects with people and hope the group jump-starts me into keeping the creative juices flowing at home too.

    Hope to connect with you again, Susan. I'm interested in hearing more about your story, and your current living situation (your garden description pricked my ears). Josephine

    It was wonderful meeting you and your friend, too, Susan! Aiko's work was definitely a treat for the eyes. If I had the extra funds I would of bought one of her beautiful pieces on the wall. I'm so glad you enjoyed visiting Creative Growth studios. My sister, Aurie, would approve ;)

    Welcome Susan! So glad to have you. I see you also bead and that is one of my passions. Come to the pow wows to see incredibly gorgeous beadwork for sale and on the regalia of the dancers. Backstrap weaving classes from a native are one of things i'm arranging for this group. Love to hear about your times in Mexico. See you at a Meet up.

    Hi Susan-
    I hadn't seen your message! I haven't found a cohousing community yet. Do you have some leads in mind?
    Hi Claudia. Are you going to the cohousing conference in Oakland? I haven't been to the last few SF cohousing meetings and don't know if you've been to any either. Have you found a cohousing community yet?
