Stitching get togethers

This is a post that I’ve wanted to put together for a while now, and I need your help.  Yes you!  And you too!

In my working life, I tended to move cities (err more like States) every three or so years.  And every time I moved into a new area I wondered if there were other cross stitchers or general crafting groups locally so I could meet some people.

So, with your help, we are going turn this into an International Community Page of get-together for everyone to use to find or start a local stitching group in their area.

I will start.  Please post any details of any groups you know about that meeting regularly or occasionally.
