Just looking at your list - I have a moderately transportable treadle
sewing machine, which I am more than happy to teach/let people use.
It's at my mother's (Near Riversdale Station, on the Alamein line, and
near Middle Camberwell on the 70 tram, and she's fine with having a
(smallish - less than 10) bunch of people over for sewing/crafting
I remember discussing the idea of an AltCrafters market, and if I
recall correctly, we were wondering if there was a need as yet - there
is the Black Market, and the Northside Makers (Northcote? Something
like that). I'd be interested, though.
I'd be interested to learn to crochet, and I can attempt to teach
anyone who doesn't know how to knit, to do so.
I'm most interested in getting together to make stuff, and
teaching/learning from each other.
