March 11 Meeting Preview: Ravelry "how to"

Ravelry is “a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools, project and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration”. It’s an awesome way for you to keep notes about your projects, check out what others are making, find the perfect pattern (free and paid patterns) and connect with people from all over the world who love to play with yarn.

For our March education activity, we’ll have 4 tables with leaders who will provide information on the following topics:
  1. Basic Overview: signing up, profile, quick tour
  2. Organizing: library, favorites, remember & compare 
  3. Searching: for patterns (with yarn, color, inspiration), for designers 
  4. Project pages: adding projects and looking at other people’s projects

The meeting will be held Saturday, March 11th, at the Textile Center, 3000 University Ave SE, with the following schedule:
  • 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM - Open Crochet
  • 11:00 AM to 12:15 PM - Announcements and Show and Tell
  • 12:15 PM to 1:00 PM - Education Session
  • 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM – Open Crochet
To get the most out of the meeting, if you haven’t already done so, please go ahead and set up an account at (it’s free). If you're not ready to sign-up - no worries - the Basic Overview will show you how to get started.
