What we're about

Calling all crafters, knitters, crocheters, sewists, and alike! Let's spend time with our needles and enjoy a beverage or two. All levels and crafts are welcome. I started this group to meet others, learn about different crafts while supporting local businesses on the south side of Chicago.
