Kollabora

Kollabora is a new crafting site that was recently put in my radar.  It’s interesting and a new social site for crafters.  It features jewelry, knitting, and sewing projects.  Being fairly new, Kollabora seems like it’s going to be a great place for crafters to hang out.

I have been playing around with the site, and listed a project there just to see how it works.  I did have some trouble attaching photos, but I eventually was successful. 

This looks like it’s going to be a great place for smaller brands and indie designers.  You can sell things on this site, and there is a growing store.  Features I like?  It’s easy to add details to projects.  The closest site I can relate Kollabora to is Craftsy.

Another thing I like about Kollabora is the how-tos.  Got a question about a technique?  See if someone else either asked the question or posted an answer.  It’s a nice way to reach out to the community.

Will Kollabora be able to compete with the likes of Ravelry and Craftsy?  I think they will, but I would love to see them branch out to more crafting skills.  I’m going to keep my eye on this site, and I suggest that you give them a look, as well.
