This is the saddest day. Craftster has been such a huge part of my life, and of the lives of both my daughters. I will truly miss all the interactions, the swapping, and the true friendships I formed on this site. This decision has left many of us with broken hearts. Long live Craftster!  Cry

I have created craftster board on reddit

https://www.reddit.com/r/craftster/

if you don't know reddit it is a forum, and so we can make posts, upload pictures of what we made, send personal messages and most importantly stay in contact!

it is of course free to use. Please, please join me there.

and mods, if it is possible, can you put the link to the board in a prominent place.

I am devastated!

Could we go to a large craft organization (Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Joann, A.C.Moore) and suggest that they sponsor a community like Craftster and host swaps, etc? With their high profile, I would think new people would come in all the time.

Or would user-posted content and exchanging personal information just pose too many potential legal issues for one of them to sponsor such a thing?

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

I can't fully express how sad I am. I've been a member since 2006 and even though I've never met ANY of you I feel like there's been a death in the family. I've come to craftster for inspiration, for motivation, for support, and most importantly for friendship. What a great group we were. Hopefully we can stay connected through other social media outlets but I felt like craftster was my own personal getaway. I don't post things as freely on other social media sites as I do on crafster so hopefully we can find a common ground for all of us

Nooooooooo! This is just awful! Cry Cry Cry Cry

This site has given me so much crafty inspiration in the 13 years I have been a member. I have learned so much from, and been inspired by, this wonderful sharing, caring community. My heart is in tatters...

Will we have access to our bookmarks and PMs as part of the archived site? I dont know how Ill be able to save all of that by the 19th.

edelC, thanks for starting the Reddit space! It may not be perfect, but at least its something!
