Here is a question for all the women out there...

Have any of you ever (over your lifetime) wish that you had or had had a place where you could go late at night, maybe after the kids were asleep, or husband was asleep...or maybe just wanted a place if you were single...to go and meet with friends (or stranger, soon to be friends) to craft late into the night???

I have always had this idea that I wish there was some amazing place to just take my craft and go...after the world had quieted down in the evening, just to work on ...laughing and having fun.

If you had something like this right down the way a bit, would you be tempted to check it out, alone or with a friend???

My daughter in law had an idea for a shop I could own, and that brought out the memory of what I longed for over the years! I would like to see a crafting space, available from around the time people get off work, until about 3am. I believe a juice/coffee bar would be involved...and snacks!

What would you think of this? I would love to hear your ideas! Any crafty guys would be welcome as well.

This is the coolest idea! I, too, have longed for a place to go, especially since I have literally no space here at home to do anything artsy. You couldn't keep me there too late in the evening, though. I pretty much turn into a pumpkin after 9pm.

Hola

sobre este tema no te puedo ayudar porque no conozco las costumbres que tienen ahí, pero seguro que si tu nuera le gusta la idea, habrá más mujeres como ella

te invito a visitar mi blog y verás que coincidimos en muchas aficiones, las suculentas, los cactus, plantas en general y sobre todo los neumáticos

te espero

besos y felicidades por tu trabajo

Esepcially in this day and age I think it would be a great idea. If you live in a city large enough to support this. With everyone working etc. I think you would have a chance at success. I would say go for it.

Cool idea! There is a yarn shop in my city that is open for folks to drop by and work on their projects and talk. If it was closer I would go for sure.

Our local quilt shop does this perhaps it's once a month. people sign up for it as the space is limited. They bring their sewing machines and there is food and they do laugh and create to all hours of the morning. I have never joined in as I personally much prefer working on my art all by myself. But I hear everyone there really loves it.

Thanks everyone, for your comments.

Hi Julie,
I enjoy getting together with my friends and my Daughter and her friends and just set a day to do crafts. We also eat and talk a lot. I just try to make that time, I try to e-mail them and say what weekend is good for everyone. I really enjoy that time but I also love to craft on my own at times. I have a little space and that is where I go. But owning a shop sound amazing. It is a lot of work but good planning and talking with other store owners would give you some ideas.

Thank you once again for your sweet comment on my blog and I hope you do get a moment to make some cards. Just cut up that paper stack and play. : )
Blessings to you.

I dream of such a place. My twins leave for college in the fall, and with them goes the one who is a night owl. Go for it, though I'm in the Chicago area and would have to look enviously from afar.

I'm such a homebody. My special place is my studio down in my basement. However, last year, coworkers and I got together once or twice a month to have a knitting club. We went to some really nice Korean bakeries/coffee shops. It was heavenly to knit together.
