It started off with woodburning, but now I'm starting to get interested in carving, too.

Hi Sheri - Here is some information about "Patches" in North Carolina:
North Carolina Gourd Patches
In the Triangle area you can contact Judi Fleming (336) 908-6341, or Paul Buescher for general Triangle gourding information. Judi is also very active with the Triad gourd patch.
The Far Western North Carolina Gourd Patch meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Shooting Creek Fire Dept. Community Room. Shooting Creek Fire Dept. Community Room, - 18 Eagle Fork Rd. - Hayesville, NC 28904,
This location is east of Hayesville, N.C. off of Hwy64. Members come from over a hundred miles in all directions from east Tennessee, Georgia and western NC. The patch is open to the public and only requires each participant to donate $2 per meeting to cover the cost of renting the space. Every month a technique or project is presented for a minimal cost, generally $5-10. Notices of the meeting project are sent out over e-mail at the beginning of each month so that supplies can be gathered up and gourds prepared. All are welcome and can email Fonda Haddad or call her at (321)298-2796 for more information and directions.
Star Fleming is very interested in starting a "Beach Patch". If you live along the North Carolina coast and would like to check it out, please contact Star. Her phone number is: (252) 264-4649
There are two Triad patches that cover the Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and Highpoint areas. The basics and intermediate work are taught every other month (starting in January) on the third Tuesday of that month at the Flower and Garden Building of the Dixie Classic Fair Grounds in Winston-Salem. The even months feature an advanced workshop in Judi's Summerfield studio. Contact Judi Fleming for more information.
