Hobbies Up To Here Episode #47

Hello, hello hobbyists and crafters! It’s time for another podcast episode!

Have you ever realized how easily crafting can become a one-man show? One minute you are starting a project and then within weeks you realize you haven’t really talked to another human being but HEY! You have a finished quilt! Crafting can be a very solitary part of the day and it’s easy to forget to reach out to those with common interest.

Enter guilds and groups! We’ve talked before about our feelings on joining a guild in the area but now we’ve added to our search. Instead of just seeking out quilting guilds, we’ve joined some knitting and crocheting groups through Meetup.com. SO far we’ve joined four groups and we already had our first event with one of them! We’re very excited to add these groups to our web of creators to hang out with and learn from!

We’ve also realized that while we are sewing or crafting, we like to send a little time with other podcasters chatting away while we work on our own. It helps to also feel connected even if it isn’t in person!
