Hey Needleworkers and Needlework Lovers! You Can Now Subscribe to Our NeedleWorkMonday Community!

Some of you may be saying

I thought we were already a community.

Yes, we have already established a wonderful and beautiful community with all of our @needleworkmonday members. However, recently there was an official launch of Hivemind communities which allows for better organization and moderating abilities. I see it as the next level to using tags because you decide which audience you want your particular posts to appear in front of. We can now share our posts with communities that were made exactly for the content we love to share. For instance, if your post talks about educating at home you can post in the Homeeders community. Or if you are showcasing your photography you can share that post directly with the Photography community.

There is still a lot to learn but we wanted to make this post giving you some pointers on what we have grasped so far. First let me give you the direct links to join our community:



When posting in the NeedleWorkMonday community please do the following:

  • add #needleworkmonday if you post on a Monday
  • add #needlework if you post on any other day
  • use the posting guidelines found in our FAQs if you want to receive a vote and resteem

If you write your post within the community and want it to show up on your personal blog, you must resteem the post. A resteemed message will not show up on your blog, it will be as if you wrote it directly from there.

When you post within the community you will see that it shows your name, then your community role and then written in NeedleWorkMonday...

@Muscara submitted her awesome pattern of the week post on Saturday so she did not include the #needleworkmonday tag but only the #needlework tag...

Another option on how to share posts to the community is cross posting. Note that this feature is currently only available on the Steempeak interface. The cross-posting feature is really for bringing other people's work into the NeedleworkMonday Community, rather than your own work. When you cross post you are creating a new post and it will receive autovotes from your followers. If you cross-post your own posts (or other people's posts) too frequently you may irritate and lose your voting support.

The best thing to do is to post directly in the NeedleworkMonday Community.

For further details on how to cross post on Steempeak please visit Introducing the "Community Cross Posting" Feature.


We also wanted to inform you that our FAQs have been updated and now include the following:

Attention New Members

Upon joining the #NeedleWorkMonday community we require you at least share one post that includes process photos of your original work in order to be eligible for a resteem and/or feature in our showcase. This validates and proves the work you are sharing in the community is yours. All of our veteran members have already validated their work. We ask that you at least share two photos of your work process but encourage you share more.

Our members have worked hard to put out original quality posts for others to enjoy. They spend time here engaging, commenting, voting and encouraging one another. We want to make sure the needleworkers we are supporting are indeed submitting their own original work if stated. You are likely to gain more support and more engagement on your posts once you have validated your work.


So please Subscribe, Subscribe, Subscribe to our community! We will continue to update you as we learn more about these new features and how to post in communities. If you know of any great posts that gives a howto on communities please share in the comments below. We look forward to sharing and engaging with you!

Thanks so much @shanibeer for clarifying that! I just updated with your explanation ;)

The post is fine @crosheille 😍


Thank you, you added more clarity ~ 😉


Additional information on how to post in the community after you subcribed to it.


There is a button for that on the right side of the community page:



It's easier here (did I mention that I love Steempeak?). You write a post like you're used to and at the top of that page you can decide whether to make a "normal" post or one for a community:

Click on "My blog"and you see your communities, choose oneand you see where you will publish this post

Remember to use the #needleworkmonday tag (or #needlework on the other days) as one of the first five tags, that ensures that your post will be found by all.

Happy needleworking - I'm looking forward to reading your posts!

Thanks @muscara!

Very helpful post <3 I already tried out to post directly into the community and then to resteem and I think it worked. Thank you for updating us all and I am glad we now have all the wonderful needlework post visible at one glance.

So glad it was helpful for you! Yes it worked, your post is here in the Community and also nice and snug on your personal blog, yay! 😃

I’m glad too!

Have a nice day and sincerely yours,

Thank you @trufflepig!

This is great!! Does anyone know if there’s a separate group for punch needle or are we just, all here, crochet, rug hooking, knitting and all?

Hey there @dandann! Thank you for your interest! Yes, we support and cover it all. Any craft involving a needle we happily welcome. We’ve been growing strong since 2017 and have become the go to community for all needlework artists and lovers.

What type of needle work do you do?

On Monday’s we use the #needleworkmonday tag and on all other days we use the #needlework tag without the word Monday attached. We share our work, patterns, tips and ideas supporting one another as we inspire the Steemit blockchain.

I see you have recently joined the Community. We would love for you to post your needlework there to share with us. We encourage our members to share the process of their work and take us along the journey with them. We require all new members to share one post with at least two photos of their process work in order to be considered for a resteem and feature in our weekly showcase. It’s a great way to validate your original work and to create quality detailed posts :)

When you have the time feel free to view our FAQs for posting guidelines and more information about what we do.

Side Note: I just glanced over your profile and wanted to say that you are beautiful, a talented artist and I love the gracefulness and joy you display in your videos. My husband and I watched the video of you that went viral (the one that inspired your profile pic) and we were just smiling the whole time. It was just so sweet and enjoyable ~ 💓

Thank you ~

Aw yay!! THank you so much for your kind words ^_^

Right now I am dabbling in punch needle, loom knitting, and crochet. Basically I'm using the first two to stay sane while I learn the third. And frankly, now with the planet getting shut down, I suppose I'll be practicing a lot more. So there's that. I'll try to take some photos of the stuff I've done and maybe catch the coming Monday posts. We'll see.

You are very welcome :)

Haha I hear ya. I started learning how to crochet almost nine years ago to relieve stress and any anxiety. You’ll
Love it for sure!

I’ll be taking a long needed break from Steeming for awhile. Been here for 4 years and it’s time to get more rest and spend more quality time with my family. I look forward to connecting with you more sometime in the future.

I hope you find the time to connect with the NeedleWorkMonday Community and share your work.

Take care ~

Thanks! And take care of yourself ^_^
