Social media sites like Facebook can be a great place for crafters to share their own ideas, look for new crafting ideas and interact with a community of crafters. Using Facebook, those who love crafts can join groups and talk with others who enjoy crafting. Websites like Facebook make it easy for people with similar interests to interact and share tips, advice, patterns, projects and more craft-related fun.
To use Facebook, you’ll need to sign up for an account and make a profile. You can include your hobbies in your profile, so adding things like sewing, knitting, scrapbooking and any other craft hobby you are interested in will help other crafters find you. Once you sign up for Facebook, or if you already have a Facebook profile, you can start by searching for the word “craft” in the search box.
After you search for the word “craft,” look through the search results for community pages or websites that have to do with crafts. You should see some pages that are for websites and blog, in addition to pages for interest groups. Once you find pages that you like, click the Like button next to each page. Once you click the Like button, you’ll then be following that page and when they post anything, it will show up in your news feed. Each time you log on to Facebook, you will see the new posts from the pages you chose to Like.
If you have more specific crafting interests, search for those terms as well. If you like to crochet, search “crochet” on Facebook. If you like to quilt, search for “quilt” on Facebook. Once you have searched all relevant search terms and Liked all the pages that apply, you will have a very comprehensive news feed that will display all of the posts from all of the pages you have Liked on Facebook.
When you see posts from pages you like, you can like these posts and also comment on the posts. A good way to make friends on Facebook that like similar crafts is to look on posts at who else is commenting and liking each post. If you see a person who looks like they enjoy the same crafts as you do, you can Friend this person on Facebook.
In addition to interacting on other Facebook pages, you can also update your own Facebook page with craft-related posts. You can post links to websites, photos of your own crafts or crafts that you have found online, or general posts about crafting. Over time, you will build up a friendship base on Facebook and be able to share crafting advice, tips, and information with your network of Facebook friends.
