The guild's group forum on Ravelry offers us a tremendous opportunity to communicate with each other about all those fibery things we love to do, and we don't have to wait for the next meeting. We've recently used it for The Sock Project and the Tour de Fleece spinners, and have had fun in the process. But we are involved in so much more than these special activities.
I'm thinking in particular of starting a thread for weavers since it is so difficult for them to meet in quite the same way knitters and spinners do. But knitters, spinners, crocheters, quilters, etc. could each have their own thread. The threads are a means of communication, to share ideas, ask questions of each other, show off projects. And they could be especially useful to anyone who is unable to attend meetings over an extended period of time.
If you have any thoughts to share on this, join the discussion on Ravelry which starts here. Would love to hear from you!
