Craft Forum is an excellent forum venue for all crafters to chat with one another, seek out information about supplies, Craft Fairs in the UK and abroad and much, much more.
There are also Social Groups that you may join which are related to various crafts.
I'm currently trying to 'kick start' a group there called 'Knitter Natters'.
If any knitters reading this are interested then please take a look. I've suggested we all do a Knit A Long, nothing difficult or expensive, just something to bring us altogether within cyber space.
