Really cool idea. I want to share with all of you! From this website:
Map the Sewintists goes live!
I had a brain wave yesterday morning while I was supposed to be herding kids out
to the car for a road trip to Ontario: how can sewing and crafty people find each other IRL and never
miss another meetup?
I quickly slapped together that post, and thanks to
pointing me in the right direction, and to Gillian for being
my first tester, we're ready to go live!
Here's how to
Open this link to get to Map the Sewintists
Click on the red
Edit button on the left
Click on the blue pin on the upper left of the
Click on your location to drop the pin
A box will open that will allow
you to add your name or blog URL in rich text
**********update from users: it appears that you cannot pin if you
are using a mobile device / tablet; also, you may need to use Firefox since
other browsers may not work; finally, you must be signed into your google
account. If worse comes to worst and you can't pin after trying all this, just
comment below with your location and info you want to include, and I'll pin you!
I would strongly advise people to only pin their general location or
closest city, since we don`t want creepers peeping in our windows while we sew
in our unders, do we?
Gillian and I have also added some fabric shopping
locations around the world, so please share your collective wisdom! I'm going
to start spreading the word online. If you like the idea, please reblog so that
we can get the word out to everyone who feels isolated from the "cool kids" in
NYC and London ;)
Hopefully this will develop into a useful resource for
all of us around the world.
Again, here's the website. Look how many of us there are already~
