I love how there are all these great crafts communities building online. I've just recently joined Craftsy, which is a crafting site with sewing, quilting, jewelry making, etc., in addition to crocheting and knitting. It's different than Ravelry and Create the Hive in that its emphasis is on "learn it. make it." So, there are online classes and workshops to take plus the ability to buy (and sell) patterns. It's got a very cute and vintage feel to it and is quite user friendly. It will be interesting to see how it develops and grows.
Not sure what else I've got to share right now -- still in catch up mode and realizing that March is quickly slipping away from me and the darn newsletter is going to be late again!
