Come to one of these crafty events
Many of us love crafts of some sort and this covers quite a huge amount of things you are able to do. I have done many of them at one stage or another and including folk art, knitting, spinning my own llama wool, crocheting and knitting toys to name but a few.
This list is a list of crafts that involve yarn of any sort whether it be sewing, knitting or whatever. They are all events that you can attend and would be fun meeting like-minded people!
