Craft Court Hangout

This is the continuation of the Court of Grandmothers thread discussion about doing a virtual crafter’s hangout (potentially more than one if the first goes well) for those of us working on yarn, needlecraft, or other projects that enable chatting while stuck inside. CJ and Catherine have graciously offered the use of Ackerly Green Zoom account so that we aren’t time restricted (thanks, y’all!) so the next step would be to pick out some times!

I figured it would be better to offer some specific options up front rather than do a general poll, so without further ado, here are some times for later this week (in Eastern Daylight time, so calculate accordingly). I would expect a hangout to last for a few hours, and people can pop in and out as suits their fancy. I also picked these times somewhat arbitrarily because they work for me and I’d be free to host for several hours, but I certainly don’t have to host, so if none of these dates/times work well for you, feel free to suggest others in the thread.

  • Thursday, April 2 @ 4 pm
  • Thursday, April 2 @ 8 pm
  • Saturday, April 4 @ 10 am
  • Saturday, April 4 @ 2 pm
  • Saturday, April 4 @ 6 pm
  • None of these work for me

I really wish I could join this, but my toddler barely lets me do the video chats required for work. :cry:

Aww! Totally understandable; do whatever you’re comfortable with. Feel free to just pop in for a few minutes to say hi, if you like!

Hey guys - I’ve closed the poll for this round. Let’s plan on this Saturday at 2 pm Eastern this time around, and we can look at other days and times in the future to include those who can’t make it this time. Sound like a plan?

I’m technically “working” from home today, but with very little to do. I’m more in papercraft mode today, but I may drop in once I’m through my emails!
