    Welcome Open Ravel Members

    It was recently announced that Open Ravel would be closing down their website effective 8/1/2020. I wish the owner health, and luck in future endeavors.

    I left a message on their announcement that we would welcome them to our community.

    If you are here from Open Ravel, allow me to be among the first to welcome you to FiberKind! I f you need any help, please let me know. If you are wondering where to start and get to know several of us, you might check out the Community Events section where we are celebrating our First Birthday where we are gathering to make squares that will be assembled and one participant (maybe two) will win the blanket at the end. We also have a Monthly Chatter section where we share whatever we are working on. And of course, we yarnies have needs for a Stashbuster program (I myself am simply there to make everyone else feel good I think LOL).

    Grab a cup of whatever you like, and settle in. Again - Welcome to FiberKind.

    Welcome to all from Open Ravel. This community was in danger of closing in January until it was saved by our new administrator Char, and many of us were devastated by the thought it going away. I'm so sorry you're losing that community and assure you'll find a very welcoming place here. When we thought we were migrating to Fiberocity someone started a group there for us to congregate, might I suggest doing that here? If there is anything we can do to make this transition easier for you simply ask and we shall do our very best.

        Welcome.

        I have found this site to be a very positive place. A place to share our love for our crafts and to encourage one another to keep going...to keep growing in our knowledge and enjoyment of those crafts.

        We have places to help get rid of our stashes...and places where we encourage you to go ahead and purchase that yarn you are craving.
        This site has just about everything you need...and what isn't available yet is being worked on and will be here soon.

        The moderators are wonderful. The staff are fantastic. The rest of us are eager to say 'welcome' and get to know you a bit better.

        ~

          I think I am a member at Open Ravel. Somehow my password got messed up and I migrated over here last summer. Anyway, welcome old friends and new friends!

            I'm a member at Open Ravel, and sad to see it close down, but of course I understand. It's been a weird year, and I'm happy if I can find somewhere to connect to other crocheters and knitters. Thanks for the welcome, I confess I feel a bit lost, again.

              Welcome, I also am a member of Open Ravel, however I found a home here. Browse a few groups and join the ones which interest you. Feel free to ask questions and join conversations, post pictures of your WIP's and FO's we love to see what others are working on. Looking forward to chatting with you.

            Thank you, I'd like to feel at home somewhere too! About groups though, is there some way of finding out before which ones are open to strangers/newcomers and which ones are not? Looking forward to chatting with you too, and share some WIP's (of which I have many more than FO's).

              Go to the Groups tab, click on a group you might be interested in it will tell you if the group is open to join and a little about the group and the topics discussed.

              Hi, Mekone and welcome to FiberKind 😊. When you go into the groups section, just click on the “join” button. Most are open to everyone, and it will show “joined” right away. If it says “pending” the group owner will review first. You are able to look at group activity prior to deciding to join, but you won’t be able to post unless you are a member. Feel free to ask if you need more help.

            Thank you both, for making me feel welcome! I'll have a look and see if I find any groups I might join. 😊

              Welcome!! This is such a friendly community, we'll do our best to have you feeling at home as soon as we can. If you could use a laugh there are also Funnies threads in the Off Topic section of the General Forum.

              Welcome Mekone! I'm glad that you found Fiberkind. I think every group welcomes new members. Some are more active than others but feel free to jump right in and join in the conversation.

            I've just popped over from OpenRavel. I was a bit of an intermittent visitor there but enjoyed being able to chat when I had time. Someone on there (Knitterlady13 - I don't know if she's on here now?) recommended Airtable as a means of recording your projects and that was worth joining for alone! That's the great thing about forums like these. Thank you for thinking of the Open Ravel community and being so friendly. I'm time poor but look forward to joining in when I get the chance.
