I have been a member of the Express Magazine's craft forum since 2004 and have really enjoyed being a part of this community. yes we have had some ups and downs. We have laughed and cried with many of our ladies. we have had new members come and go but we still have a core group of the "old girls". We have seen children and grandchildren born & cried with our ladies as the have lost dear ones. We have congratulated ladies as the graduated from uni, start new jobs & moved home and commiserated when jobs have not gone as planned. In short we have very much become part of each others lives. Along the way we have joined in on many many swaps.
But for some reason Express publications decided our forum needed an upgrade. With that upgrade they totally overhauled the forum which has made it very very hard to navigate and very few of our ladies were happy with the change, some even said they would not return. Thankfully the wonderful Vicki saw that we needed a new home and she has started Our Craft Forum.
So the swapping, laughing, crying, congratulating and commiserating is still going on. If you are a crafter of any type we would love you to join us. We have quilters, sewers, knitters, scrap booker, card makers, cooks, gardeners, mums, Nana's, aunts, sisters, daughters just to name a few.
