Silos

Ravelry

Ravelry is a silo that has social and e-commerce functionality for building a community and around knitting.

Craftsy / Bluprint

Bluprint (previously Craftsy), is a platform providing online craft courses/videos, patterns, and supplies.


Brainstorming

Communities around crafts often have fora (forums) on a variety of silos, but this sort of functionality might be replicated using tags, Webmention, or discovery-based platforms similar to Indieweb.xyz or IndieNews.

One can also post their content on their personal website and syndicate copies to existing craft-related social services.

IndieWeb friendly services like Micro.blog have discovery features like tagmoji for topics like knitting: https://micro.blog/discover/knitting
