Took a look at the front page image, and I think today is finally the tipping point for me getting off of Ravelry...

I know many designers began offering their patterns elsewhere after the site redesign debacle. But, I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations for how to keep my stash, patterns, and projects organized.

I've seen things like Trello and Airtable mentioned on a lot of sewing blogs. I'm going to work on downloading my library this week - I'd just like to be able to have it 'visually' organized, which was the big advantage to the Ravelry library.

[ETA: I have downloaded Trello and started organizing my patterns with it. I posted some info in the comments, for anyone interested.]

then posting on Twitter recently about somehow turning patterns into NFTs

Nooooo! It just keeps getting worse!

And thank you for your interest in my patterns! Unfortunately I'm not really comfortable sharing, since my livelihood depends on it remaining an apolitical, drama-free shop, and you never know who's reading forums like these. But I'm flattered by people being interesting in each other's craft patterns and supporting them here, it's good to see us all supporting each other. :)

No worries, I totally understand.

That was one of the things I loved most when I found Ravelry, the ability to support (predominately female) designers who put so much love into their craft. I'll miss that.
