I recently had the pleasure of discovering crafting groups on Facebook. A little late, I know; but hey I’ve not been using Facebook much over the last few years for personal reasons.
Anyhoos, I was invited to join a New Zealand based cross stitch group, and it got me thinking about a conversation I once had with my good friend Jennie. How cool would it be to get together with other cross stitchers in Auckland? Have stitching meet ups on a regular basis and just geek out with like minded people?
So I posted a question on that group, asking if anyone was based in Auckland, and would be interested in getting together as a group. Boom! So many stitchers popped up, I wish I had asked sooner. Last Sunday we got together for the first time and had a blast. I can’t believe how inspired and awed I am by this amazing group of ladies… and motivated too to keep stitching.
I go through slumps with my stitching, and need others to motivate me when I’ve lost the inspiration. I don’t think I’ll have this problem anymore. Thanks ladies!
p.s. if you’re interested in joining us, comment below with your Facebook email address. Don’t worry, only I’ll be able to see it and use it to add you to the group.
