Hello

Been looking around the internet for a 'crafting community' and looks like everyone has abandoned them :(

Recently early retired, but been crafting ever since I can remember, currently heavily into sewing (not dressmaking), have made cards for many many years - but none in the last year.  I have joined a few FB groups, but don't really like the way that they work, so am looking for a forum!

I do have a blog with the things I make - not always kept up to date, but have added a few things recently.

also been doing loads of family tree research

Hi Carolyn, welcome to the forum.  I am afraid that there is not so much activity in the forum as there used to be.  We have an active ATC group, there are 4 monthly swaps - I run 2 of them.  Have a look in the inspiration section and you will see some of the things people make, mainly cards and papercraft.  There are also 3 monthly challenges run by members, colour challenge, card fold challenge and sketch challenge.  I do hope you decide to stay.

RE:

does seem to be the way of forums, everyone seems to gather on FB or Instagram these days.  Will have a look around.  i did ATC many years ago, on my forum, not sure it wa really my kind of thing :).  But think maybe I should make a card or 2 again, as I literally have 100s of stamps sitting idle!

RE:Hello

Hello Carolyn 

As Di said not many people around these days on the forum, but the Inspiration gallery seems to get well populated.  Maybe people are crafting more than chatting!  To be honest I feel that posting on the internet takes up too  much time, so I keep mine to a minimum.  I think I'm one of those who prefers crafting to chatting.    Last hear, I kept posting asking others to join in, but apart from an odd one nobody took an interest.  The majority have migrated to FB.  

I hope you will post your makes though and join in some of the challenges.  I love the challenges.  They really stimulate my brain.

Nice to meet you

hi Carolyn,

Welcome to the Forums, sadly the forums are not as active as they used to be, perhaps we can change that, one of my New Years resolutions is to post here daily.

There is a lot more to discover here on the The Craft Blog too, Challenges, competitions, free downloads, Trimcraft News, plus our fab Inspiration Gallery.  We also have a brand new Design Team all ready for January so I'm sure there will be lots and lots of inspiration and how to's, and hopefully we can persuade our new 'Makers' team join in the forums too
