I love crocheting but adore crocheting with other ladies while drinking coffee and eating cake. So I recently joined a crocheting group on meetup.com. To meet new people and to crochet.
With Lynn & Madyke - she knits huge blankets as gifts for people, she is so talented (and brave!)
The group of ladies (whom I've never met before) meet monthly to knit and crochet together. I invited Lynn and Pat to join me at the March gathering, and Pat invited her friend Fran. We arrived at Mugg and Bean in Cresta on time, ready to meet everyone and ... no-one from the group showed up, even though 11 other ladies had accepted the event on meetup.com. Seriously!? I think that it's incredibly rude to accept an invitation and then not show up! This was really a failure to launch crochet group.
We refused to waste the afternoon so we got a booth, ordered drinks and got busy handcrafting. One of the ladies from the group (Madyke) eventually joined us. Despite the disappointing start, we ended up having a gorgeous afternoon, and plan on getting together again quite soon.
