The best thing about crafting is sharing what you make and learn. And the best way of doing that to to join a group.
There are lots of group all over the place. Start by looking in the crafting magazines, or the local library. You will find local groups, some which are just for knitting, some for sewing, some for everything.
There are on line groups like www.ravelry.com which is dedicated to knitting, and quick search will result in many more.
My Mom runs such a group (or 4) she plans projects every 6 weeks, and the rest of the time you can do what you like. she is there to help and guide. I usually join in when I can and when I have a large project that need help.
If you can’t commit to every week or month, some craft shops run drop in sessions, or alternative go on a workshop, crafting day, or join the crafting sessions that are run at the large craft shows.
Joining a group of like minded people is exciting and very rewarding. you will learn something, be inspired and have a good time. and if not there will probably be a cup of coffee for you to enjoy.
What are you waiting for? be inspired and make new friends.
