It wasn’t so much of a party as it was four people sitting at the bar drawing pictures with the bartender, Frank. Here are some pictures:

There was no felt flower workshop at the last meeting. I had to ride my coaster bike and i took over an hour to get downtown, so I’m really sorry to anyone who showed up with felt and needles in hand. If you bring your supplies to any future meetings, I can teach you how to make them, or you can just figure it out yourself by looking at the tutorial I posted in the last entry.
I also have no pictures to share from this meeting since when I got there, everyone had already left.
I think we’re going to be adjusting the time of the meetings from 6:30-10 to 7-9. If you want to stay longer and continue to work on your project, by all means feel free to (I usually like to stay until 10ish myself). But by changing the times on the posters, I hope it will encourage crafters to show up at a more unified time (rather than some people showing up at 6:30, and others showing up at 8:30 to an empty craft area.)
I hope that negative comments about CNAP aren’t preventing new crafters from coming out. Even after the first meeting, we encounted negative comments from people who were not at the meeting. We are a relatively new group organized by two eager crafters who have never organized anything like this before, so it should be understandable that we’re not perfect. But we’re always trying to better ourselves and the group.
I’m trying to do more workshops (the bunting one was amazing) and getting more crafters together to work on group projects. Hopefully we can advertise CNAP more on the internet and on the streets. Maybe you can tell your friends and family about CNAP too. I’m hoping the slight change in time frame can help to bring more crafters together too.
All right, I’ve talked enough. Again, I apologize for coming to the meeting late. The next CNAP is Thursday, August 6 between 7pm & 9pm. If you can make it anywhere between those times, we’d love to craft with you : )
