Skepchick commenter and all around fantastic lady, Kiera Herbert (aka TempestBrewer) is crafty. Not only is she an excellent cook, she regularly participates in the age-old practice of knitting and is providing a new way for creative skeptical types to get together.
May I present to you, SkepStitch.
SkepStitch is a blend between a skeptical meeting group like Drinking Skeptically and a crafting group. A place to come for friendship, discussion and networking in a laid back setting.
My hope for SkepStitch is that it will compliment other established skeptic groups. I’m not restricting it to one craft, but instead opening it up to anyone who wants to create – crochet, drawing, jewelry making or perhaps even underwater basketweaving (I’ll bring the kiddie pool!). Â Â I view SkepStitch as a place to grow and learn both academically and artistically. I am still a very amateur knitter, and I hope to both teachÂ and learn as well as network.
Right now I’m trying to find out where the interest lies in the Philadelphia, PA area so I can determine an optimal meeting place. If there is a lot of interest, I obviously won’t be able to please everyone, but I will do my best.Please take a moment to visit the site atÂ http://www.skepstitch.org/ to sign up. It will place your general location on a map so I can find a good meeting spot. I won’t share your information or solicit you in any way. If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected]. We also have a Facebook group and a Twitter account.
Hey, do you think we could get George Hrab to come and try his hand at crochet? ;)
