Usenet newsgroups for knitters

Usenet newsgroups are areas for public discussion of just about any topic you can think of. All of the notes, or articles, posted to them, are accessible with a news reading program. Netscape, Internet Explorer, and lynx all can read newsgroups. The yarn-related newsgroups listed here are all good places to ask questions; you're much more likely to get help if you make sure to post in the appropriate one.
  • The Usenet newsgroup rec.crafts.textiles.yarn is devoted to discussions of spinning, knitting, weaving, tatting, dyeing, rug-making, crochet, and anything else people do to make or use yarn.
  • rec.crafts.textiles.needlework is for cross-stitchers, embroiderers, and people who do related activities.
  • rec.crafts.textiles.marketplace is for people who are interested in buying or selling textile-related equipment, such as yarn, spinning wheels, sewing machines, and so forth.
