I know I'm a tad bit late on this post, but I live in Port Orchard, WA (South Kitsap county). We're about 25 minutes from Gig Harbor, 35 minutes from Tacoma, or an hour west of Seattle exactly across the water. I currently belong to a FB group of scrappers, but most of them are in Minnesota, Illinois, or Wisconsin. I met them when I first went to Scrapfest in the Mall of America. Lovely bunch! However, I'd love to connect with some local crafters and get to scrappin'! Any groups out there?

Do a FB Search for:

Croppin' in the NW

WWScrapbookConnection

Hot Mess Gals

Not sure if any of these are "closed" groups. I miss them all after moving

Hi Yolanda and Welcome!!
I used to live in Bothell (now in Eastern WA) But I met a number of great scrappers on Meet Up. A few were from Seattle but most were from my area. Try there like look for scrapbooking in Your town here___. You never know who is around you till you look. If there are message boards around like in your post office or community center or library, post a little note(I used to decorate mine to attract other scrappers or card makers!), and say who you are looking for "Looking for other(another) scrapper(s) to get together with Please call if this is you!" . To me age does not matter, but if it does for you put that too something like (over 30 preferred)Not saying anybody looks that age so if anyone reading is younger please don't take the age any any particular way. That number is just popped into my mind as I typed. I am older than that It's a bit like placing a personal add, but different. Be careful how much info you give out tho, some creeps read the same notes good people do. I hope you find some new friends to scrap with

That's an awesome idea about posting on the local boards and checking Meetup! Thank you for sharing that. I'm getting right on it!!!

I am in Bothell. I have a great studio. It is very organized, but a little messy sometimes. OK a lot messy all the time. Kind of a left brain, right brain war zone.

Yolanda, I think we met at Stampin' in the Rain?

Darn - no more CKC where I live now. I used to enjoy going to the first CKC of the season in Portland and the last CKC of the season in Bellevue. Have fun shopping.

Hi all!

My family and I just moved from Ft. Hood (area), TX to Renton, WA. We moved here in January and was very lucky enough to have gotten to do the "Northwest Paper Chase".

Hello all! I haven't checked this section for a while, but I wanted to update my info.

We recently (Jan. 14) moved from Renton to Bellevue to be closer to my hubby's office.
