The Craft Social is a fun and a great way to make new friends and also learn something new. I've attended all of the social so far. I learned how to make jewelry and met another scrapebooker like myself. We scrapbook once a moth and I’m still making jewelry! Their motto is right, "make stuff, make friends"!
