This tip is for anyone that is relatively new to knitting or crocheting. Or perhaps you have been doing it for a while but haven't come across this gem. Ravelry is an online community of fiber enthusiasts. To access, you have to make a membership but it is free. It has forums, patterns, reviews, and groups. If you are looking for local crafters, are trying something new and need support or want a pattern (many of which are free!), then look no further. Interested in becoming a knitter or crocheter (or spinner or anything else fiber related)? This website has a ton of resources and talented people willing to help.
