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.
