If I'm being honest I have to say that I'm still not sure it's a good fit for me. That has nothing to do with them though! They are amazingly organized in the local Massachusetts area, and they are a wonderful group of down to earth people. It's just that they are very much centered around craft shows and exhibits and so forth of which I can't attend.
I found out from one of the group members this weekend though, relayed to me through my hubby who attended one of their craft shows in Northampton Mass, that they have meetings that are 'skyped' (some kind of online LIVE videoing system...I think) and at times will put items in a show from those not physically able to be there! How wonderful is that?! I've definitely got to look into that more.
But anyway, hubby met quite a few of my fellow group members. He took pictures of them and their items. I'm going to show you the pictures, with their websites on them (added by me), and with a poem I wrote just for this occasion! Here goes....
A Crafty Group
T-Shirts showing pictures,
and the pillows with some too;
Artistic framed creations
done of vegetables and fruit.
Beaded wire-made bracelets;
Things vintage and brand new;
Penguins on a lunch bag;
and, of course, there's flowers too!
Plushy toys and hats;
Kittens, pottery, and rings.
Painted yarn and thread;
Priced for paupers, fit for kings.
some refashioned, now called "Green";
No plastic for the landfill:
Just some bags, fit for a Queen.
Men's ties that now are 'Handles';
Star-shaped soap, a purse with birds.
Wood crafts all hand-painted.
Retro T-Shirts, done with words.
With all the crafts and talent,
place-mats, quilts, and lots of fun
It's a group of happy people;
Every daughter, mom, and son!
If there's anybody still here...*giggling*...let me just say, I'm going to try to be a better group member. First, I've got to figure out how to stop missing my emails, and figure out how to know what's going on at the meetings, and get familiar with the Facebook website, and check out all of the other group member's websites, and.........*sigh* It's very hard and very tiring being a good team player. :-)
