New online sewing community

The knitters and crocheters have Ravelry, so it's only fair that we sewists (OK, I know that's not a word, but "sewer" always looks wrong) have our own online gathering place. Enter Threadbias: a new online community for people who love to sew, quilt and embroider. All of the content is created by the site's users, so once you create a profile, it becomes your own virtual sewing studio: You can post the projects you're working on; exchange ideas and patterns with other Threaders; and browse fabrics, notions and books (with links to buy them online). As Threadbias just launched, there haven't been a lot of unique patterns posted yet, but I found a few interesting ideas (fancy making a tea wallet or a baby bowling shirt?). I could see the site becoming a great resource for quilting inspiration – just check out this Luigi (of SuperMarioBros. fame) quilt! My absolute favourite sewing-project-sharing site is still BurdaStyle – though I find the clothing patterns a bit cumbersome to print, tape together and cut out. Do you have a favourite online craft community? I'd love to hear about what else is out there!
