Craft Mafias

Anyone in one or starting one, I'm attempting to get the Birmingham/Midlands UK one on the go, and I have no idea where to begin.

I've thrown together a moderate myspace, and now I just have to go about recruiting people. So if your a brummie/midlander crafter come have a look.

www.myspace.com/birminghamcraftmafia

Advice would be greatly appreciated. Especially if it works out as being super cheap!

I think that's really great and if I was a brummie I'd join! I might set up a North West one Happy

OOO you should, I think it'd be great if we all had different ones around the UK so if you were visiting or something, you'd know who to contact.

I'm struggling to find arty brummies though lol. I may have to flyer.

Make one! We should all make one for our particular area can we put 'Sponsered by Cut Out and Keep.net' although that implies the wrong thing, maybe 'In association with Cut Out and Keep.net'?

sounds like a great idea fairypants! I think it'd be much fun. I've already been messaged by a brum based haberdasher offering discount to craft mafia groups, apparently they help out glasgow and manchester, so i could always forward their details on if you start one!

Oooh good idea. I wanted to start one up in Dundee, but I'm in London now and there's probably one for each area here. We were wanting to add something to CO+K so that you could see crafters who live near you, that'd help out with recruiting members.

Cat that'd be fantastic, it'd be great to see people face to face, and craft as a team as such! hopefully I'll get something sorted in Brum and it'll be wonderful! xx

That would be awsome to get one together in Vegas. (= Sadly I don't think there is to many c o & k's in Vegas. Who read the boards at least. )=

That doesn't matter Tara it could get people in your area into craft and onto CO+K and would help if people are really stuck with something and need someone to show them physically.

Okay, so two new pages which should help you out:

http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/community/near_you Near you shows you people who live within a 5 mile radius.
http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/community/map Member Map shows you where people are on a world map. Zoom in for more detailed locations.

Ooh, queenfairypants! I live in Merseyside and would love to join a north-west craft mafia!
I've been thinking about making my own craft group, and have a few mates who I know would be interested.

Once again I'm late for the dance. I really like the mapping and I would really like to start agroup in my area. Right now I travel really far to craft once a month with a ladies group and I wish I could find local people that share my love of crafts.
