Introducing Crafters Chat

There is a new crafting forum on the block, Crafters Chat. We started Crafters Chat earlier this year as a way to bring crafters together and provide a safe friendly place for them to communicate. We invite you to join us to share your projects, advice, tips and stories.  If you are having trouble with a particular craft project or are looking for a special project, all you need to do is stop by and ask your fellow crafters for help. I find that crafters tend to be some of the most helpful people on the internet. We all love to show off our creations to other crafters and Crafters Chat is the perfect place to do that.

To celebrate when Crafters Chat reached it’s first 100 registered users, we gave away a gift certificate to AC Moore craft store. In the near future we are planning a new promotional giveaway. I hope you will join us. Details will be coming in the next few weeks. The details will first be released on Crafters Chat’s Facebook page so stop by and “Like” us today so you don’t miss out on the official announcement.

It is free to join Crafters Chat and will remain free.  I will give you an overview of how to use Crafters Chat incase you haven’t used a forum before. When you arrive at Crafters Chat, click on register in the top right corner. It will then bring you to an agreement. Once you have read it, click on “I accept the terms of this agreement” at the bottom of the page. That will bring you to the registration form. Here you choose a username, enter your email address and choose and verify your password. Then type the verification letters and click register.  Congratulations! you are now a registered user.

To use the forum, you can click on any of the categories on the home page to read posts that have already been published. If you read a post and would like to contribute your comments to the post, simply click the “reply” button on the right hand side of the page. This will bring you to a page where you can type up your thoughts. Once you click the “post” button on the bottom right your comments will be added to the original post. It’s that simple.  If at anytime you need to make changes to what you wrote, simply go back to the post and you will have an option to “modify” any sections you wrote however you cannot make changes to what others write.

To start your own new post (new topic), from the home page, click on the category you would like to post in and you will see a “new topic” button on the top right side of the screen. Click that and it will bring you to the page where you can write what is on your mind. Please remember to give your topic a “title” so others will know what your post is about.

It is simple to add pictures to your posts.  Click on  ”Attachments and other options” underneath the box where you entered your post. You will see “Attach” click browse to find the file on your computer. Then click “save” in the bottom right corner. Note that there is a size limit on pictures so if you have trouble attaching your picture, try reducing the picture size and reattach it.

I hope that you will start using and enjoying Crafters Chat today!
