Craftster has been on my radar for a while – it’s a sharing site for craft people and projects. However I’ve only recently come across the “Harry Potter Craftalong” section, where people craft with a Potter theme, and share their work to win “house points”: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427092.0#axzz2eN8mOj6l
I wonder if this might take the sting out of the recent revelation for a relative of mine who joined Pottermore only to find out she had been sorted into Slytherin.
Also I don’t know if I’m late to Instructables: it really doesn’t do to spend too much time on that site. There are some fabulous projects.
At the moment Tom and Tehmina Goskar are working on developing our digital platform for buddying up with fellow crafters to be able to develop a partnership for a couple of months to share skills. Today we are going to make a profile – I will be the guinea pig – to show how to (and, I imagine, how not to) make a profile that will encourage buddying for best results. I am a little nervous, which is a good thing to remember when you are going to ask members of the community to participate in a project…
After we make my profile we are going to road test this process with some of our project volunteers, and then the first set of material iterations will take place. I am still hoping to (re-) learn to spin, despite the facts that I don’t have a wheel, they are very expensive, and it has been so long since I learned that I probably need to drop the “re-“.
