Right.... it has taken more time staring at a computer screen than I was hoping to use today, but I believe I have an alternative set up for the Tour de Fleece for anyone who wishes to stay away from Ravelry.
Even if you are happy to go on Ravelry I would appreciate people popping in there and posting . Those who aren’t able to access the space on Ravelry also deserve the Tour de Fleece experience.
You are welcome to post there and join in even if you are not spinning Hilltop Cloud fibre.
The Tour de Fleece starts on Saturday 27th June.
We normally spin for every day that the riders race, and the Tour de France last 3 weeks, ending on Sunday 19th July. The riders aren’t riding this year, but we’re all still spinning.
Our Ravelry alternative will be hosted on Groups.io
I'm still feeling my way around there, but the site does function, and so far as I can tell there are no glaring issues that will lead to problems for anyone.
It's set up to be a private group, and I will need to approve members before they can join. Posts will only be visible to group members.
Information about the site, and what they do with your information can be found here.
Edit- 26th June
Groups.io works in a similar way to the old Yahoo groups, and your email address is visible to other group members.
If this is a concern for you I recommend setting up a temporary email address and using that to set up your account.
