Looking for your input

Dear All,

I have been contemplating for the last month or so whether or not I should dismantle Homespun Helpers. There are a lot of reasons for this, the uppermost being that I feel like I can't designate the time that this cause really needs. This has been an amazing experience, but all wonderful things must come to an end. I have seen the use of livejournal slip in my own life and overall, it's difficult for me to find the time to grow the organization on blogspot, and Ravelry seems to be more active in groups that are not about crafting but are about things crafters have in common.

Because this is a community, I wanted to let you all know I was thinking this way to get your input. I have created a page on Facebook called "Making crafts for charity" that I would like to use to spread the word that there are millions of charities that depend on us crafters, and I'll be focusing some efforts there regardless.

Let me know what you think when you have a chance. And thank you!!


I would be sad to see it go, but if it's requiring too much work i completely understand! Maybe we don't have to focus on going forward so much, and just keep it as a place to share items we've made for various organizations? It may be less active that way, but we would still at least have the support and camaraderie of working together to make the world a better place, skein by skein. :)

My 2 cents.
Yeah, I don't really see a need to delete the account or anything, but the livejournal community is the oldest, so it seems like a good hide-out :)
Like Ruth and Naomi, where ever you go I will follow.
Ditto.... you're our esteemed leader and it's more the spirit than counts than anything. :)
I'm with SnoopingMother - followin'. You have done the most amazing job with this community.
Thanks, Toots :)
