So I find that the fiber community is pretty evenly split between folks who love the internet and technology and those who are most likely using dial up. I even ended up being the " web person" for my local spinners guild because no one else wanted to do it. I feel that this is to be expected because if you enjoy passing your time with yarn and spinning wheels you may not be into all things technology. As a result I've gotten a good many questions about the website ravelry.
Ravelry is an online search engine and community for fiber artist. I personally have sort of mixed feelings on it. It absolutely can't be beat for pattern searching and finding new designers. I personally prefer Instagram or Facebook for socializing and sharing projects just because I find the sites more user friendly and updated. Here are some videos I made to give sort of a run down on the site and how useful I find it for finding the perfect pattern to incorporate some handspun or art yarn. Please comment if you have any questions and I'll be here to help.
