Okay. So after bawled my my head off for about five minutes and tears still streaming down my face Im finally ready to post....

This craftalong, this whole site, has been my community through my cancer diagnoses and treatments. Whenever I have felt emotionally wasted and physically exhausted I have turned to this little craftalong to give me inspiration and courage. It has kept me creative in even the darkest of my times. Im having a hard time knowing that it will not be here anymore in its current form.

As it is I will be transferring my participation to Facebook. I hope others of you will follow. (BTW the link to the Facebook Harry Potter Craftalong is broken)

To those of you who cant follow to Facebook Id like to invite you to get a n touch with me so that we can still communicate.

My email in [email protected]
And you can find me on Instagram under ErinAquaheart
My name on Facebook is Erin Baier and Im from Arkansas.

yes. I feel the same, This place, this people was also my comfort and solace during my cancer experience.

please also join us on reddit if you can

I am so sad that Craftster will be closing. Cry

I'm in the Facebook HPC group & my Ravelry/Goodreads/Instagram pages are linked in my profile here if anyone wants them.

There is a Craftster group on Ravelry, but it hasn't been very active: Craftsters in Ravelry

I know that the HPC Facebook group's privacy is set to not be visible in search/via direct link (aka what was called the "Secret") setting to keep off spammers. Could it perhaps be at least temporarily set to Private & visible upon search (formerly called "Closed") since many of us not currently in it will likely want to be joining? More info: https://www.facebook.com/help/220336891328465

Mods of the facebook group can also set-up questions which prospective members have to answer before they'll be accepted into the group. More info like halfway thru this page: https://www.facebook.com/help/1686671141596230/?helpref=hc_fnav

Another idea: posting in this thread + in the Facebook group the links for all past HP craftalongs. So that folk can easily discover all the many amazing projects that have been created over the years

Thanks for the info PhoenixWolf!  Most people in the HPC on Craftster are already in the Facebook Group, since it's been running so long.  For those who aren't, here is the link again:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1510145372585717/

I'll go double check the link on the first post of this thread and fix it if need be.  I've been checking the page throughout the day and adding folks to the main Craftster FB page, the Shawl-Along page, and the HPC page every 30 mins or so.  I have set up a question for the HPC, simply asking for your Craftster username.  It should be easy to join with the link.

Cheers,
Jennie

I just sent a pm with the list of addresses to everyone who signed up for the Holiday Owl Post. If you didn't receive the list please send me a message and I will get it to you. It's nice to have something to look forward to with the changes happening here.

I sent off a swap package today, and it was my 60th craftster swap. A lot of those were Hp swaps. Putting up our tree it made me smile to see the various handmade HP ornaments I have received over the years. I've also got lots of handmade items mixed in with the collection on my shelf. It has meant a lot to me.

Ok Friends, I've done two things. 
#1. Create a custom alias for the group that FB says should work for you:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/HPCraftalong

#2.  I have unhidden the page, but will be hiding it again in a few short days.  EVERY TIME I have tried making this group searchable I have been instantly hit with people trying to spam us with porn.  Occasionally I just get a crafty person who wants to do HP crafts but does not want to 'Craftalong' the way we do, but I think there's only been like 2 of them, compared to 30-40 porn spammers.  I did set up a question for people requesting to join the group.  It's just 'What is your Craftster username?'  If it gets bad again, I may have to add a second question.

Like everyone else I was shocked when I first read the message, then as I read the comments and realised that this won't stop the amazing members for continuing I was relieved, even though I would prefer we didn't have to go through all of this.

Of course my first thought when I read that was "omg, what am I supposed to do with the craftalong now? Is there any point in continuing?" glad to see I don't need to end it.


Mistress Jennie I couldn't see any question about the username but I just asked for permission, first name Codruta
