I am looking for places to find patterns, yarn & supplies etc. for R refugees. Not looking to ban anyone, but want to at least start with the R silenced right.
Lovecrafts.com is where I am finding patterns and yarn.
Lovecrafts supports R’s position. I cannot support them
You know, I understand your perspective, but for me it works. Data base, patterns and yarn, score!
Cheryl Beckerich objected to R’s bigotry. She’s at https://www.cherylbeckerichknits.com
She is definitely on my wish list.
I suspect Blue Mule Fibers, though they haven’t come out one way that I could tell. Ewe Ewe yarns seems to have stayed out as well as far as I could tell.
Gregoria Fibers and Tusken Knits came out against Ravelry.
And there’s a lot of new designers just on etsy but not on R, that I intend to support.
fibercrafty.com is similar to etsy. It has people selling stuff they make. yarn, fiber, bags, stitch markers, patterns
I opened up an account with FiberCrafty, but was disappointed to read this in FAQ:
Question: I am a designer and sell patterns, should I sell them on FiberCrafty?
Answer: Nope but read on! Let’s face it, Ravelry is ridiculously amazing and they do many things very, very well.
I design crochet patterns and decided to use my designer blog, Love Crafts, FiberKind, Pattern Vine and Makerist to offer my patterns to “makers”. Hope that helps!
