Upcoming events (4+)

Crafternoon Delight!

Online event

For anyone who still wants to get together and craft virtually, we are taking the meetup online. Set up your camera to show us what you're working on, or just grab a headset and chat. We're trying a different video service: Facebook Rooms. You must use the Google Chrome browser to access the room, but you do NOT need a Facebook account. If we have any trouble, we'll fall back to www.uberconference.com/schneagl We will post the room link the day off the event. Do you craft but want to relieve the doldrums of creating by yourself at home? Join us for crafternoon delight online! Bring a small craft and your gift of gab and join a group of nerdy/geeky folk for group crafting.
