Are you a Crafty Astorian?

I'm not. My craftiness starts with scheming to get the Democrats back in the white house and ends with me fixing my stuffed animals. However, if you *are* crafty, there's lots of crafty groups in Astoria.

ACK (Astoria Crafty Knitty Group) meets every Thursday at 8pm at Freeze Peach. Now that must-see-TV is defunct, this is a most excellent replacement on Ditmars.

In the Sunswick section, a kniting Meetup meets up weekly at Cup. They also took some summer knitting outings to Socrates Sculpture Park.

A bonafide stich n' bitch happens weekly at Ten63, down in LIC. Ten63 actually changed their hours for the group!

Crocheters welcome.

PS. Where the heck do we get some decent yarn around this joint?

BTW, Mia (see comments) said that if you're interested in the LIC group you should actually check out this site. Thanks, Mia!

Hi, I stumbled across your blog through Queens. I'm the Acting Director of the Writing Center at the Women's Studio Center, which is just a block away from Queensborough Plaza. We have tons of writing and art events going on all the time, and we're always looking for new members!

Check out the details here:

We're very interested in collaborative events with other local programs, so if you have any suggestions, please let me know!
