To learn tips, gleen inspiration and network with fellow crafters.

I like this site which is fab if you are interested in crochet at all.

What sort of crafts do you like - I have all sorts bookmarked so it would help to narrow it down.

I also like the crochet one linked to by bluebump and this one which is a sewing one with some free patterns

I love that attic one - I've seen that one before, she is amazing isn't she! I like all sorts of crafts (I'm a beginner at every thing!): crochet, small sewing projects, even paper craft. I love it all!

I find these are great for inspiration and instruction (surprisingly)
Craft craftzine.com/
and instructables www.instructables.com/
a bit whacky at times.
Pinterest is also really helpful too pinterest.com/
Through these I've found loads of useful blogs and lost many hours of my life!

sew mama sew has lots of great tutorials and tips

tipnut is a brilliant site

Martha Stewart (don't laugh) actually has loads of great tips

my blog has some tutorials and tips and ideas, not anything nearly as good as the other sites but I like networking with other crafters!

Pinterest is an amazing website, just browse through photos, find something you like, click on the photo and you'll be taken to the website where the tutorial or tip or craft is. I'm happy to invite you if you need an invite, just PM me.

Dollar Store Crafts

Mum of all Trades is a brilliant website

smockerybee is another great one, especially if you want to try smocking

There are so so many amazing blogs and websites out there, too many to list here, I did used to have a lot of them saved on my bookmarks but then by laptop died and the hard drive was reformatted and now I have to run Ubuntu and all my old bookmarks are lost forever. It is quite sad actually.

On thing you can do is find a blog you like and follow the links from that blogger's list of favourites. Usually people who craft follow the blogs of other people who craft which is how I collected my huge list of book marks.

overmydeadbody - same thing happened to me so I feel your pain. I had to go through all over again and re-bookmark - not that it was much of a hardship but it did eat up a lot of time. smile

lol ye niece, it's just the time it will take me, it's like uncovering buried treasure, time consuming but well worth it!

just found another one

overmydeadbody, I have just checked your blog and I like it. Tell me about your guiness cake why it is that dark as you have not added that much cocoa powder or is it a combination? I am tempted to try it.
I am still checking other links.

lovefruits the guinness is very dark so that adds to the colour of the cake, and 75g of cocoa powder might not sound like a lot but I guess it's a very light powder becuse I had to add a lot of powder to get up to 75g! grin You have to make it, it is amazing!

Spikemomma, ther are lots of us on here who do craft blogs - I am currently doing a tutorial every week up to Christmas which you can find here You can usually find a list of blogs that the blogger is following on the right hand side of the screen, I have found some super sites by clicking through.

LatteLady Tue 11-Oct-11 15:36:39

Apols for the typo... should have read there!

Terpsichore Tue 11-Oct-11 15:41:36

Feel as though I'm always banging on about it but [www.purlbee
.com this site]] is lovely....and if I ever get to New York I'm going to be visiting their shop ASAP!

Terpsichore Tue 11-Oct-11 15:42:40

OK, the link didn't work angry but that's the address, as you can see - www.purlbee.com!

overmydeadbody I am planning to try making your Guinness cake on Friday night. DS is excited at the thought that he might get drunk grin

Tomisinathewitchescat Tue 11-Oct-11 18:29:19

Have had the guinness cake in a cafe, would love to give it a go too.

overmydeadbody Tue 11-Oct-11 19:08:19
