At any rate, I'm pleased to announce that my crafty-peeps-in-person (or lack thereof) problem has been assuaged thanks to my friend and fellow cube farm inmate, Jenna! Yesterday morning Jenna sent me an email with a link to this new establishment that just happens to be minutes away from my home and office!
And here's the best part, not only is this a locale where those of us who are crafty can hang, make and be merry, but they offer classes too! After perusing the class schedule, Jenna and I decided to take the embroidery class together next week (Bri, you may want to join us...it's crewel) and in October I am planning to attend the spinning class. Since the UCC is new and therefore currently lacks the ability to take credit cards, Jenna and I sped over there at lunch to give them checks for our classes. We were greeted by a beautiful facility, plenty of natural light, new tables, chairs, cabinets and one of two familiar proprietors! You've no idea how happy I am to have this amazing resource open in my neighborhood.
So, if you live in Los Angeles, like to make stuff while in the company of others, this is the venue for you. Go check it out and sign up for some classes! Or just go, hang out and make stuff with other peeps who are similarly engaged. You will not be sorry.
Long live the Urban Craft Center!
