Have you ever made friends through crafting or DIY projects?
About 10 years ago, a couple of friends and I decided to create a crafting club. The idea came from a friend whose mother-in-law in India had a "kitty club" or "kiddy club" (not sure which) where a group of women would get together each week for an activity or outing.
My friends and I decided to create our own club, where once a month, we would get together to work on some type of art or other type of project. We would also each invite 1 or 2 other friends to join the club. One month, we went to a museum to see an art exhibition. Another month, we took a painting workshop together. Over time, we also did tie-dyeing, card making, and batiking. The members of the group grew and changed over time, as our lives progressed. But through this group, I met a lot of new people and made some wonderful friends. And I had some great fun with the old friends I already had.
Have you ever made new friends through crafting or some type of project-building? I'd love to hear of others' experiences!
