What we're about

We are women who do arts and crafts. Some of us are professionals, some have Etsy stores or market online, and some of us just want to get together, make things and have a good time. We talk, do show and tell, and sometimes lead each other in closed workshops.

Oct. 2018 will mark our eight year anniversary, and our group has evolved and grown into an amazing entity, an even better community than we had originally hoped for. Our mini workshops have been varied, abundant, and well attended. Our group is warm, accepting, and the friendships we are making are priceless. Our Art Journal Meetup has taken on it's own life and continues to thrive as an inviting introduction to non threatening art for all talents, skills,and visions. Monthly Craft Camp sessions are a great way to work on your unfinished projects while being inspired by others. Our semi-annual weekend retreats are a great get-away for fun and creative surges.

If you are new to our group, you may attend one of our Saturday morning meet-ups where we share what we have been working on and enjoy lunch together. If you decide to become a member, you will need to pay membership dues either $30 for 6 months or $50 for a year. This will enable you to attend all our activities. Membership dues pay the cost of the meetup site, refreshments, administrative fees and subsidize some of our workshops.

This can be paid on Paypal (preferred method of payment), by check, or at the door. If Paypal is not an option, send a check to Lorri Andrews 8403 147th St. Ct.E. Puyallup, WA 98375.

If you'd like to, just stop by and visit us before joining, or you can email us. We'd love to have you.

Stitched Together Book Project Time!

Wheelock Library

This is time for you to work on your page! Bring your supplies and have fun creating and playing along with others. If you haven't started yet, or if this is new to you, we will share thoughts, the theme, guidelines, requirements, deadlines and more. The All Stitched Up book project is hosted by the University of Puget Sound. TACG is participating, sponsoring and submitting an entry. See (https://www.pugetsound.edu/academics/academic-resources/collins-memorial-library/all-stitched-up/). We've formed a group called Stitched Together. Please join the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1890787071009445/ We will provide the canvas/paper (or bring your own – Fredrix 9"x12" white canvas) that will be the foundation. Bring your creativity, ideas, paint, embroidery thread (at least one black stitch is required), needles, fabric, and whatever you may wish to use or share. We are providing basic kits to hand out to interested parties and will have some on hand (a $2.00 donation is requested), but if you have your own supplies, please bring them. Also bring a piece of scratch paper and a pencil to jot down/sketch ideas. These questions might help facilitate your creation: What stitches me together? What stitches me to my community? What stitches my community together? Hope you are able to join us! If not, there will be upcoming times scheduled (the next one will be on January 27 at 1:00 at University Place Library and then more in February) for a group meeting or a one to one meetup at a time that works for you can be set up (comment below or email [masked]). We want YOU involved! :)

Monthly Meeting And PotLuck

Needs a location

This meetup is our most popular one because it's more social than structured. It is our monthly general get together and is the best meeting to get to know us. We start with about an hour or so of sharing/show and tell (not required), and finish with lively chatting about crafts. Bring your work and share it with us. Bring your design challenges if you want us to brainstorm with you. Or, just bring yourself and share in the craft talk. If you have a project to work on, feel free to bring that along. Following chat time, we have a potluck lunch and then usually a craft camp session (free) or a organized workshop (fee) for a hands on learning experience. The group provides coffee, tea, and water. Some of you occasionally gift us with treats. We always appreciate that. You are always welcome to participate in the potluck lunch. There is no charge for this monthly meetup if this is your first time attending (and you want to check us out), or if you are a member in good standing whose dues are paid. We pay dues yearly at $50 or every 6 months at $30. If you are new to the group, see Linda and she will prorate your dues. Dues help pay the expenses of running our busy and diverse meetup. They also entitle you to participate in workshops that cost a fraction of what you would pay elsewhere. Join TACG today!
