In case you do not know about Ravelry.com I want to tell you that this is the place we, knitters, crocheters, designers, authors, yarn companies, spinners, and others who are involved in the industry are hanging out. Casey snd Jessica Forbes founded this website in 2007. It grew very quickly in a very short period of time. This alone tells you how much we needed it. I am personally very thankful that Jess and Casey made it happen.
It is now has well over 4 million membership. It is free and informative. So hard to imagine that we did not have it before. I go there a few times on any given day for many different reasons. Sometimes I am looking for a person, sometimes for yarn, sometimes for what is trending. I also check to see what is happening in my group there.
My Ravelry group has 1462 members at the moment. It is the place for me and fans of my designs to connect and have fun. For example, I do many giveaways for members of that group and I share with them my news first.
Our 3 recent giveaways included five free passes to my Craftsy Class and two wonderful books. This is the way I can say thank you to people who like what I do and keep me going.
If you are not in that group yet, please join us. I would love to see you there.
Sending you creative thoughts.
