  • Hi, new here and live in the West Midlands

    Hi there

    I live in Halesowen in the West Midlands, and was primarily wondering if there were any craft groups local to me.

    I also think it's time I stop bugging my non-crafty best mate with my crafty prattle and try to find some more like-minded people in real life!!!

    Looking forward to chatting

                    Everyone seems lovely

                    I'm still trying to navigate the site, it's a bit different to the ones I'm used to...this is my first craft forum

                    What I came looking for when I typed into Google was a local craft group which meets occasionally.... I'm still looking though!!!!!!

                        Hello Glitter, and welcome. This is a nice forum and having met some of the people from it at craft fairs I can vouch that they're nice too!

                        I'm just up the road from you in Sedgley.

                        I don't know of any craft groups that meet locally: I think there might be some in Wolverhampton. Trouble with Google, I've found, is that you google looking for one thing and end up sidetracked into something else! Anyway, you've sidetracked yourself onto a nice forum.

                        I have to admit I'm not very good at navigating in Halesowen, either by car or on foot. My internal compass is insistent that I should be going one way, when all the street signs and so on tell me I should be going another. I get extremely confused there. Someone once told me that ley-lines cross beneath the town and that's what causes the confusion. And I thought it was just poor navigational skills.....

                          Quinton is easy to get to

                          Sedgley is less easy for me to get to, but I think I know where it is (I don't drive)

                          You could be right about the Ley lines I always have so much trouble in Dudley trying to navigate around; even when I lived there I was constantly lost... I don't see to have that problem with Halesowen though - I must be in tune with my town!!!
