New Crafting Community

There’s a new crafting community, both here and on LJ Dreamwidth. I know, because I’m the one who set it up!

It’s called get_knitted, but is in fact for whatever kinds of crafts you like to indulge in.

It’s a place to get together, talk about what you’re making, share pictures and progress reports, ask questions, swap information and unwanted items from your crafting stashes, and hopefully make new crafty friends.

From somewhere around the middle of the month I’ll start daily check-in posts where members can leave comments to let us know how their projects are coming along. Nobody has to check-in every day, just whenever you feel like it.

Members can also volunteer to host check-in posts for a week (on the community, not on your own journal). It’s a great way to get everyone talking to each other, like a crafting club that meets every day, different people dropping by when they have the time or inclination.

So if you enjoy crafting, whether you’re experienced or a beginner, why not join, introduce yourself, and settle in to work on that abandoned project you’ve got gathering dust in the cupboard? With the support and encouragement of your fellow crafting enthusiasts, maybe this time you’ll get it finished!
