Craft Social is monthly crafty chat co-hosted by Barbara Forbes-Lyons (@penguintrax) and Haley Pierson-cox (@zenofmaking). Each month we’ll host an online social via Twitter and crafters, artists and creative types can share current projects, talk about the process of art and craft, and meet new people to follow on Twitter!
How does Craft Social work?
Before each event, we’ll start announcing (on Twitter and here on this blog) the time, and discussion topic for the next Craft Social event. At the designated time, just use the #craftsocial hashtag in Twitter to follow the conversation. You can do this by using Tweetchat or Search.Twitter.com. Ot if you prefer, you can also create a custom column in Tweetdeck or Hootsuite (or similar Twitter client). Just remember to refresh your view every now and again so you don’t miss anything!
The Craft Social Code of Conduct
Craft Social wants to create a space where all participants feel respected and heard. If you join us for discussion, we ask that you:
- Assume that everyone’s point of view comes from their own authentic experiences and feelings. Whether you agree with someone or not, their viewpoint is still valid for them and deserves respect.
- Express your disagreement if you like, but please word it kindly.
- Participate in the conversation at hand. Do not use Craft Social as a marketing tool. This includes using the #craftsocial hashtag on marketing tweets outside the monthly event.
In the interest of healthy conversation we reserve the right to block anyone who refuses to follow these guidelines.
Winning our Prizes
We are fortunate to have great prize sponsors. To be eligible to win a prize, answers to the prize questions must be tweeted to the @craftsocialnet account.
In the interest of fairness, if you have won a prize recently, please consider taking yourself out of the running so another Socialite can do the prize-winner happy chair dance.
