I have been creating and designing in the yarn craft arena for over 40 years (did I mention that i am an old duck?!? ) - my yarning crafts include: hand knitting, circular machine knitting, crochet, crohooking, freeform crochet, loom knitting, Tunisian crochet, and pretty much everything in between. I have taught these crafts for many years, and I am a sign writer/graphics designer by trade which has helped me with designing logos and tags for my various projects.
But… my point is simply this: as a creative person, and I am sure many of you will attest to this, we live for the freedoms that we have in our creative thinking. This requires a very special kind of environment to thrive in, and it can often be difficult finding like minded people to “hang out” with in a creative sense, But for me, in my very short time on Ribblr, I have to say that this community absolutely amazing! Everyone is just so thoughtful and encouraging. There is no animosity or jealousy at all and the kinds of comments that I read on not just my own very few posts, but others as well, are testament to the Ribblr foundation and the team that have brought all of this together… I give out a heartfelt thanks to all of you and look forward to enjoying all of the crafts and ideas that Ribblr has to offer. It makes a huge difference when we can be who we are and be able to create what we do, in an environment that just perfectly understands.
