Ravelry is a free social networking service, beta-launched in May 2007. It functions as an organizational tool for a variety of fiber arts including knitting, crocheting, spinning, and weaving. Members share projects, ideas, and their collection of yarn, fiber, and tools via various components.
Although currently not that active, the Staten Island Handspinners & Weavers have a group on Ravelry. Feel free to join in the discussion!!!
