Hello hello! I hope everyone's holiday traveling is going smoothly, and not slippery.  The Meet Make Share end of semester event was fantastic! I want to thank everyone who came out and stopped by the studio to check out the group.  

Alas, we are entering the week before Christmas, and then there's New Years, and then I go on a long vacation to Portland, OR.  -So- there unfortunately will not be any official meetings held for the next four Sundays (December 21st, and 28th, and January 4th, and 11th).  I'll be posting little projects here and there, that may be of interest while we all melt in cookie land, so don't forget about us!

Again thanks to everyone that made it out, it was absolutely fantastic.
Have a great holiday and keep in touch, I'll keep posted!

Meet Make Share End of Semester Event!

Happy Friday! Today from 5-8 Meet Make Share will be meeting in Interdisciplinary in the  usual place- but - as a part of Kansas City Art Institute's school wide end of semester show! So come on out, see great work, eat wonderful food, and hang out with Meet Make Share with the usual movie watching as part of the celebration- plus make something with the wide spread of materials we'll have out tonight!

See you there, and as always contact me for any additional information.

Happy belated turkey day to everyone! I'm back in Kansas City, but I'm still on vacation (and by vacation, I mean have a bazillion things to do for finals yet.) Unfortunately Meet Make Share won't be meeting tomorrow, at least officially.  There are still family occasions to be met, but we can all participate in little satellite meetings wherever the holidays have landed us. 

This Friday is the end of semester show at the Kansas City Art Institute, and there will be a special Meet Make Share event as part of the show.  I'd like to shout out an invitation to everyone to come out to the show.  There will be some amazing work performed and on display, and you can come make some amazing work of your own! I'll have more information posted later on this week. Have a good one!

Sunday, November 23rd

Hey everybody,

This is Meet Make Share's first post, so I feel I aught to give a little back ground of the group.  My name is Elysia, and I started Meet Make Share as a venue for people of all levels of creative back grounds to come together in a workshop style, and teach and learn new skills collectively.  Each week features a new "project," and a movie.  We watch movies, work on our studio stuff, make little projects that can be sold for local charities, hang out, and really just have a great time.  I wish I had more at the moment, but I'm still working out the details.

If you're in a gaming mood (and I'm not talking video gaming) come to the studio this Sunday to create a board game or card game or some sort of game that will be totally awesome.  I will have plenty of materials for free to use, and/or you can bring your own.  The proceeds from the games sold at the end of semester show will go towards a donation to the Children's Place.  

We'll continue the wondrous Planet Earth series, and as always, there will be popcorn, and yarn and knitting needles if you're dying to learn how knit, or to make something quick.  Tell your friends, your mom, your teachers, your little brothers, your neighbors, and your dog!  See you there!
