Methinks it is like a woozle.

Now, overdividing Craftster and causing many, many issues for our wonderful Admin is not a good idea and so I'm not going to say you "should" do anything.  I just offer for consideration two ideas:

A board for polymer clay.  Once I get my camera up and working again (it's been out for a year now but -should- return to service next week, though I'm crossing my fingers here) I know I'd have plenty to post, from different types of canes I've made (complete with tutorials) to covered altoids boxes to charms and beads to plain sculpture.  Running a search on polymer clay brings up eleven pages of results, mainly from Miscellaneous or Trinkets, so it might be handy to stick them all in one place.

Idea numero dos: should this thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=9365.msg72819#msg72819 proove successful, it might be handy to create a Sewalong board as the seamstresses' answer to the Knitalong section.  I know the sewalong brainstorm thread here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=9268.0 has already seen suggestions for other sewalongs, and I've got a few patterns myself I wouldn't mind working on with the assistance of a Craftster group (Simplicity 5093, anyone?).

If it's more handy to leave things where they are, of course, then please do.   I'm just a bored college student offering up an idea or two in hopes of somehow being a positive contribution to the Craftster community.

Dang camera.  Smiley

That said, I wanted to give my personal thanks to Leah and all the people who have worked to make Craftster the remarkable entity it is.  Rest assured you are loved the world over.

Well, I definitely agree with you about the polymer clay board!  Grin

If a polymer board doesn't happen here though, you might want to check out the other polymer groups which are already online, as well as checking here (I read about 5 boards per day myself... most are polymer-only).

Another reason to have a polymer-only board here is that finding polymer-related posts is pretty difficult now.   For one thing, most newbies don't even know that the clay they're referring to is "polymer" clay.  They simply refer to it as Sculpey or Fimo (or Premo or Kato), and don't realize that those are all just brands of polymer clay...

And . . . I'm VERY interested in your photos and especially tutorials (see website in my signature Wink ).  Or do I already know you by another name in the polymer community?

Nah, I'm not too active community-wise.  Mostly you'd find me on Livejournal (though I watch the polymer clay groups, and haven't posted) or here.  The issue with my camera is now resolved, but it seems most my actual polymer work has long migrated away on a sea of friends and customers. 

Still, camera!  The problem was actually with the USB port on my (old) laptop... and so my boyfriend built me a new computer for free.  Geek.  Still, once I get some time (weekends!), I'll be much more productive and ready to fill any potential clay board (as well as contribute a bit more to other areas of Craftster).  Perhaps I'll check out other polymer clay groups online.

a BORED college student? Wow, this gives me hope that I won't be totally swamped with homework!

I love the sewalong board idea. (Im not too into polymer clay, but good idea for that thread, too.. The only time I use it is when I have to come up with something to give to my dad for christmas. I know there are at least a few people on here that are into clay)

I'm no longer a moderator, but I will always love June 2005 - October 2008

I too would be very interested in a polymer clay board.  I had also thought of suggesting a cake sculpture/decorating board in the Food section but unsure how many out there are active in this art as well.


PS Diane-  I love glass attic and have referred to it many times!

Take a peek!

Only during the summer, I fear.  Right now I'm slacking off from three chapters or so for three different classes, two papers, and umpteen problems... and it's only the second week.   I'm a science major, however, and tend to take heavy loads.

I know half a dozen things I'd like to do on a sew-along board... well, when I have excess time, that is.  Living for the weekends here.
