Is anyone part of a crafting circle?

out of curiousity, i was wondering if there were any crafting circles out there. like a book group but about craft things.

Also, if anyone thinks it sounds like a good idea and would like to be part of one (preferably Berkshire and surrounding areas, England) then send me a message or post a comment here..

I'm part of a knitting and crochet group. I've also been in beading groups before too depending where I've lived. I generally find that most groups are specialised towards one thing, rather than general crafting circles/groups. It depends what you're after really: if its a bring your own project and gossip group (i.e. stitch and bitch) or something more organised- more like a workshop. Try searching for groups in your area on facebook and ravellry and asking in your local craft shops. Some of the more 'old-school' organisations such as the beaders and embroiderers guilds also run local groups. If you are really stumped for something you could think about setting up your own.
