Hello there,

I'm writing an essay about Craftster as a virtual community.  I was hoping some of you lovely Craftsters could help me out with a few questions!

You don't have to answer all of them, if you just have a idea about one or two, that's ok!

1) Why did you join Craftster?

2) Have you met other people that you consider to be "friends" on Craftster?

3) Do you communicate/meet with other Craftster members elsewhere besides these forums? (either in real life or online)


Thanks so much for your help, and to the nice mods who've allowed me to ask you guys  Cheesy  Oh and of course, you & your Craftster identity will remain anonymous! Wink

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.

1) Why did you join Craftster?

I was looking for a tutorial on making purses and in finding one here, learned what a fabulous idea-pot Craftster is!

2) Have you met other people that you consider to be "friends" on Craftster?

No, and that's a bit surprising as I have participated in several swaps! I have met up with old friends though, which is always a surprise!

3) Do you communicate/meet with other Craftster members elsewhere besides these forums? (either in real life or online)

A few yes. People I've known locally - i'm in a show this weekend with a member.

1. Because I was drooling over the stuff avsceriline sent and received in her swaps, and she kept saying I had to join in on the fun Wink

2. I have met other people on here yes, and I do consider some of them friends. I'm still pretty new though lol

3. Yeah, with a few I do, on LiveJournal. I've met 2 craftsters in person as well

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

1) Why did you join Craftster?
I've been lurking around this site for, I'd say, at least two years now.  I finally joined a few weeks ago because I wanted to be able to ask questions, give comments, and use that little "this rocks!" button.  =)  My personal craftiness is rather stalled right now, so showing off my own projects actually wasn't a factor in my joining.

2) Have you met other people that you consider to be "friends" on Craftster?
Not yet; I've only been here a couple weeks.  But I do have to say this is probably the friendliest forum I've ever seen!

3) Do you communicate/meet with other Craftster members elsewhere besides these forums? (either in real life or online)
Again, not yet.  I'd be open to it though, and there is that handy city guide board!

1) Why did you join Craftster?
Found it via a newspaper article (Guardian) and it looked like fun!
2) Have you met other people that you consider to be "friends" on Craftster?
Yes, I've met some lovely people on here - kind, thoughtful and generous.
3) Do you communicate/meet with other Craftster members elsewhere besides these forums? (either in real life or online)
Most people I've met here are in the USA and I'm in Britain, so it's online contact only, and postal exchanges of crafts and materials, but I've started a UK Journal Round-Robin, partly for fun and partly for UK crafters to get to know each other, and I hope we will meet up at some point.  There are vague plans for London crafters to get together at some point.

1) Why did you join Craftster?

I was SO EXCITED when I found this site - to use a really cheesy phrase it is a very "vibrant community". There's so much information, there are lots of helpful people, and it has encouraged me to try new projects!

2) Have you met other people that you consider to be "friends" on Craftster?

Not "real life" friends yet, but there are people whose posts I look out for because they seem like nice people? I could imagine making proper friends, but I've only been here a ltitle while!

3) Do you communicate/meet with other Craftster members elsewhere besides these forums? (either in real life or online)

nope, but again I havent been here long!
