Hello, and welcome to the_nest, a birthplace for new ideas. the_nest is a craft-rating community, and was created out of a desire to see a focused community full of talented people and creative, well-made crafts.
If you're thinking about applying, there are a few rules, but I've tried to keep them to a minimum. Applying 1. After joining, please post within 2 to 3 days. 2. Type "new" in the subject line so that it will be easier to spot you. 3. Fill out the breif survey. (optional) 4. Post 3 or more pictures of your different completed crafts. If posting large pictures, please be courteous and use an lj-cut. 5. Be nice, and we will.
-- Topics welcome include crafts (general), knitting, crochet, beading, sewing, collections, cooking, gardening projects, floristry, fashion design/reconstruction, etc.
--Your acceptance will be determined by members already accepted into the community. If there is a tie, a moderator will cast the tie-breaking vote. When voting, approved members should type a "yes" or "no" in the subject line for easier counting. Members are encouraged to vote as often as possible on new applicants.
-- Absolutely NO eBay auctions or community advertisements are allowed. These posts including all other off-topic posts will be deleted.
-- After being accepted, please feel free to post questions (as long as you feel they are on-topic or may be beneficial to others), links, or photos of projects you would like to complete. Please remember to give credit to the creator when posting their photos.
-- Have fun! That's what this is all about.
The Survey -- Please remember that this survey is only our way of getting to know you better. Your acceptance into the community is not based on your answers. It is optional, but we really would like to know more about you and your crafting interests. :o) 1. Name 2. Age/Location 3. What are your main crafting interests? Your favorite hobbies? 4. Do you collect anything? If so, what? 5. If you want, you can post a picture of yourself, but it is not required. Acceptance is not based on appearance, this is just for kicks.
