July 2019: Beyond Ravelry: Internet Resources for Knitters

You use Ravelry, don’t you? Did you know there are many other online resources available for knitters and crafters?

We will look at Instagram, Pinterest, and blogs and discuss what types of resources each format offers to users. Please bring your WiFi enabled device, curiosity and questions, and an eagerness to explore some fun new resources.

Please be aware that like Ravelry, both Instagram and Pinterest require users to create a free account.

Sharlene Goings will be our speaker this month and is familiar to many of you from The Swift Stitch, one of our business members. In addition, Sharlene podcasts, writes, and teaches knitting in Santa Cruz. You can find her on Ravelry as KnitterNinjaShar, and on Instagram as @Yarniac. As co-host of The Yarniacs Podcast, Sharlene and her co-host Gayle share their knitting projects, observations and skills with an international audience. Sharlene is available for private knitting and AppleiOS lessons. When she’s not busy with those activities, she can usually be found knitting sweaters, her favorite articles to knit.
