Learn how to make the best out of Ravelry - the one-stop online resource for knitters and crocheters.
Looking for some help to find your way around the amazing Ravelry website??? Our class isn't running at the moment, however you can take a look at the notes in the pdf above to get you started and on your way! You can even download them if you wish.
The Ravelry website is an amazing resource for fibre folk - knitters, crocheters, dyers, designers... it's a one-stop shop! But navigating your way through the site can be tricky if you're not familiar with how Ravelry works. This fabulous website can be a brilliant resource and an inspiring community, provided you can use it effectively and efficiently.
In this class you will learn how to:
- register for and/or log in for Ravelry
- search for patterns using filters (eg yarn weight, garment or item description, construction method, gauge etc)
- set up your profile page
- find groups that might interest you
- search for yarn
- save your projects
- organise your 'favourites'
- join chat groups and post questions
- basic online “etiquette”
You don't need to bring anything for this class however you are welcome to bring your smartphone or tablet if you wish.
Cost: $45 You are also entitled to 10% off any purchases made in store on the day.
Your teacher: Jane Downey
Inspired by her grandmother, who would crochet intricate tablecloths without even referring to a pattern, Jane learned to crochet as a teen and has been crocheting now for over 30 years. Jane is a member of the Knitters' Guild of NSW and has taught crochet both for Guild meetings and at the Guild's camp, as well as at several yarn stores in Sydney. Jane has won prizes for her crochet at both the Sydney Royal Easter Show and the St Ives Show. Jane spends way too much time on Ravelry which is why she is the perfect person to teach this class! ;)

Navigating RavelryBy: Gillian Stegmann on 12 January 2020I recently attended 'Navigating Ravelry' with Jane and I could not rate this course more highly. The notes Jane prepared are excellent and very easy to follow, as was our session on the day. I am completely satisfied and am looking forward to using my new skills. Thank you. Gillian
