Just wanted to share that the publisher for Cloth Paper ScissorsQuilting Arts has online forums for just about any type of artist out there. Once you join, your password should work in all the other groups - so you don't have to keep signing-up in every group. It is free and they have lots of good, free information (videos and pdfs)that I found interesting. I just started spinning and got a lot of useful information that way. Metalsmiths might be interested in the Jewelry Making Daily group. Take a look at their free projects.
