Changes to "In The Wardrobe"

Hello everyone!

We recently did a bit of a survey to find out what people liked about the forum, and what needed to change.

We took the ideas to our subscribership and asked for opinions on how the boards should be structured. There were lots of great opinions on the "In The Wardrobe" board and we now seek to improve it.

New child boards

We are pleased to introduce two new child boards: Technical Help and Members' Diaries.

Technical help is a perfect place for asking questions regarding techniques, the best way to achieve something, fit problems and more.
Members' Diaries should hopefully prove popular for those who are keen to wardrobe plan, SWAP, or even just post long blog-like threads discussing their regular sewing achievements. We encourage you to create a diary as your personal space on TSP!
Pattern Discussion is the newly renamed Patterns & Fitting child board, ideal for posting pattern releases, assistance searching for patterns or questions regarding patterns you have.

Hopefully everyone enjoys the new changes. We will run like this likely until the next survey in 2019!

Do we have a fitting board where we can post for fitting help or questions?

Technical help, as we had Patterns & Fitting but people seemed to prefer "technical help" and then a general board.

Personally I see Fitting as a technique and therefore posts should go well in Technical help, but others may infer differently.

 :(  I really liked the Pattern name/number threads - does this mean we'll no longer have them - or do they just go in the "Wardrobe"?  :S

Do Rulers and Curves really belong in the pattern section?

What a lot of work to do all this, Fran - but thank you!

I wasn't going to backdate move every single post so I just moved a select few from the top of the list. However I can move this to The Haberdashery for you if you like.

Thanks, Fran. It makes more sense in Haberdashery, I think, and when I go to look for it I will know where to find it. :)

Ah, right, I thought there might be a current projects or similar, but when I get my sewing room sorted, I'll know where to put what I'm doing.  I do think it's nice to have threads with the pattern number, and I love to see what people are making  0_0

I am really enthused about the diaries. I have actually looked through the patterns I have today to see what patterns I need to get. I've also been keeping my colours in mind as I browse fabrics. I ordered some good but not so expensive fabric so I can experiment (toile) with the trousers pattern I have. :)

I really should put this in my diary. ;)
