Wasn't sure where to put this. It feels like a commercial (and it does help me if you read the article) but I really wrote it because I love craftster and it seemed like a natural thing to do. Anyway, you'll find the article here:

http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/21179/craftsterorg_this_diy_website_will.html

I wrote it a while back but it just got published yesterday. Hope you guys like it. It's sort of a tribute to Leah and all the sweet, helpful folks here at Craftster. I can't tell you how it's changed my life for the better and probably my family's life, too.  Hope you like the article.

I know what you mean, I love craftster also.  I go to the purse site everyday.
The talent here amazing.  The ages of some of the members and the things they are making are beyond words.  I've learned so much from them.  I was so inspired, that I used some of the tutorials and actually made some purses.   Craftster is the best, I LOVE it.  Nice story.   Grin

Thank you both very much. Thanks also for commenting there, Jloveg. I appreciate it tons and I can't think of anything that would make me happier than this comment:"you read my mind and  wrote it out for the world to see".


Lynndell: I know what you mean about the ages. Gosh, I couldn't make anything when I was a teen and these folks are way, way far ahead of anything I'll ever be able to make. It's really inspiring. The old people are alright, too. :::Ducking::: Grin

I think I wrote about this when I first did my INTRO YOURSELF posts, but I'm goin to type it again. I was in our local Carl's Jr. (Riverside, CA) and the girl behind me had a really great knitted purse with big, fabric-covered buttons. I told her how cute I thought it was and we chatted for just a minute or two. She mentioned the site and I'm so glad she did! I have been having a great time here. Thank you, Mysterious Stranger Girl!

I was reading through an e-mail from another group I belonged to and this lady was talking about a wonderful swap she was doing with different group and so I e-mailed her for more information since I was looking for another group to join.  She pointed me to Craftster and I've been hooked ever since!!!!!!!!!

well..i came across crafster on google by searching 'free patterns' ..i sifted through some really  rubbish sites, a lot of adverts,  and felt I'd stuck gold when i hit on crafster..Is pent a good few hours looking through all the threads.

I have recently seen it mentiond a few times on www.moneysavingexpert.com - a u.k moneysaving/ reusing/recycling/ making site..

and also on www.mumsnet.com - a parenting website, in their craft section

The major UK newspaper, The Guardian, just featured your site in an article today, so you might get several other new UK members joining up!

Craftster was a featured website in Simply Knitting magazine!  The May issue, I think, the one that came with a circular needle.  It's a UK magazine so my Barnes & Noble gets it a month behind.
