Last night, after a day of knitting & chatting (loved it!) I went to an event hosted by O3 Gallery in Oxford. It was an evening of crafty networking. I wasn’t sure what to expect, whether I’d be ‘crafty’ enough but I thought it’d be a great evening out if nothing else. I took along a friend of mine, who described herself as a ‘craft enthusiast’ as there were makers & buyers there & she just knits for herself & her loved ones. For me it was great to know that there are so many people out there doing very similar things to me – & some have been as brave/stupid as me by giving up their jobs to focus on their craft more.
It was a lovely night. I met & chatted with a lot of people and I got to hand out some of the business cards I’d had made by the lovely people over at Moo. And it was good to see how many people are interested in craft & how many people are interested in buying craft from local people.
I don’t know if anything will come of the networking, but it was really nice to talk with like minded people and to discuss local places & events etc. And I really enjoyed swapping cards with people! I’ll definitely be back x
