a place to share links to online resources, interesting websites, and tutorials

Purpose of the group

This group has been established as a central area on Stitchin Fingers for members to leave links to online resources, interesting websites, etc. It is also the place where you can leave a link to a tutorial, or start a new discussion with a tutorial of your own.

It is hoped that this group will be the place that members from all groups will post tutorials here, so all members can access them. NOTE: this is probably not the best place to post questions asking for advice -they would be better in the relevant group, or main forum. I think group will work better simply as a listing of links.

Several discussions have been started, one for each area of interest. Hopefully this will make it easier to navigate. NB: select 'view all' to see all the discussion/areas already started. Please add your tutorial to the most appropriate discussion thread, or start your own discussion to add a new topic area.

(I have tried to simplify the areas as much as possible. eg I have list CQ with other patchwork and quilting. If you would prefer a separate area, feel free to start a new discussion)

Please note: This is not the place to advertise your work for sale, or link to Etsy. etc. Links like this are permissable on your private page only.

Rosemary - questions like this will get a quick response if ask them in the TAST group. But I recommend you experiment with the stich in other words try  it in both threads and even more. Floss and  Perle # 8, #5 , #12 are basics - go on from there

Thankyou to all of those that made healing hearts for the people of Christchurch – New Zealand after their major earthquake. The link above shows the exhibition of all the hearts. There were over four thousand hearts sent.
