Have you checked out how Ravelry operates? It's a huge knitting. spinning crochet community. I don't know if they run on Ning or not, but it might be worth checking out.
Just a thought.

I just showed your biscornu to my 95 year old MIL who is in hospital. She used to do a lot of embroidery when she was younger and she loves seeing what I do, and what I received from other stitchers. She was entranced by the biscornu - never seen anything like it, and very impressed with your fine stitching!
Shari - great news!!! Your biscornu arrived yesterday (Dec.31) , and I absolutely love it - thank you so much! It was postmarked Oct.29, so it has obviously gone by surface mail...dingbats..
Hopefully you won't have mailed your second ornie, but if you have, I'll send you another stitched pressie in exchange, okay?
I'm about to post a pic of your ornie on my blog, and will also post a message on the Cross Stitchin Fingers Group to let everyone know it has arrived.
Hi Shari, I'm responding to the message you left for me on Cross Stitchin Fingers. Thank you so much for making another ornament for me. I am so disappointed the first one hasn't arrive - it looks so pretty! I'll let you know when the second one arrives, and of course if the first one does turn up eventually, you'll hear me yelling HOORAY all the way from Canada!
Would love to chat with her have just spent my first weekend learning how to stitch Japanese Beading it was fun and really enjoyed it can't wait to carry on stitching them but would also like to learn some english beading as well Sue
Hi Shari sorry I haven't replied before life. I still haven't got swap so if you would like to do it with me. Not done one before so what do I have to make to swap and do I have to contact anyone else?? Speak to you soon
Awwww, what a cute little bird, Shari - I love him!
Did you ever hear from Jenny about the Christmas ornie swap for our Cross Stitchin Fingers group? I've nearly finished my ornie, so it will be yours if she doesn't contact you by the end of this month! Stay in touch, okay? We can swap postal addresses some time in November if necessary.
