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.]

Yeah, the whole thing with the redesign and Cassidy going off to pout was so wrong, then posting on Twitter recently about somehow turning patterns into NFTs, and now 'Nothing Says Knitting Like Bondage and Buttplugs'... I'm not putting money in their pockets anymore.

Made a Trello account, and I'm going to try following a tutorial I found on a sewing blog. I'll update if I have success. (Would love to see your patterns, if you're comfortable sharing that, too! Pattern collecting is also a hobby of mine apparently, haha)

I just looked for him on twitter - has he been banned?
