If you aren’t familiar with a relatively new online community called Ravelry, I highly recommend you check it out!
Ravelry is a great online location for you to meet other fans of fiber, check out and purchase the latest patterns and join discussion groups about various fiber-related topics. I have been a member for awhile now, but only recently started to delve deeper into all the features Ravelry contains.
I currently belong to 16 groups that cover everything from free form crochet to technical spinning to spool knitting. I have in just the last few days, I started to check out the online repository of patterns.
Site owners Jessica and Casey are doing a great job listening to the current users about suggestions and improvements and the community is growing daily!
In order to control stress on their servers, Jessica and Casey are extending invites in groups. Simply sign up for a user ID and you’ll be connected as soon as they send out your invite. Trust me, it is worth the wait!
If you haven’t checked it out yet, I suggest you log on. If you already have, I would love to hear your thoughts!
