Ravelry is a powerful online tool with many different aspects that can make it confusing or downright intimidating. For those who do use it, many use only one aspect, or are not aware of the bountiful features for knitters, crocheters, spinners, and weavers hidden within. We will start by looking at the overarching structure of Ravelry in order to understand how it’s organized. We will then explore the “notebook” section of the website (creating a project, your personal library, stashes of all sorts, project queues, groups, friends, messages, purchases) – focusing on areas of interest of those attending the class. Bring your questions and wonderings. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of Ravelry and how to use it more effectively.
Required Skills: Students should have a working understanding of the device (tablet, phone, laptop) they bring, if they choose to bring one.
