    I love Pintrest too. I use it to hold quilt, knit and crochet patterns I find. Also other things, but I like to use it instead of bookmarks because it has the picture of the item. I think you'll really like it when you get the hang of it.

    I love Pinterest too--I enjoy seeing all the quilts people make and repinning them so those who follow me can see them and I can check out what the people I am following are pinning. I see what my granddaughter pins--mostly house decorating pictures and tips.

    Love Pinterest, it saves me from printing patterns/instructions for things I want to make. I just keep them on my boards, I spend way to much time there finding things that I want to do. People can follow up or you can follow other people.

    I love it. So many great ideas. And I'm thrilled when someone likes one of my pins and re-pins it.

    Thanks for the questions and answers. My daughter uses it and "suggested" that I might enjoy it. Glad to get the information. I like the reference about pinning it to my bulletin board - but I always know that it's over my sewing table! Hopefully I'll be able to find this also.

    I don't think that you have to put your real name on there - my niece just put her first and middle name on hers. I am flattered when somebody "re-pin's" some of my ideas or recipes, or whatever. Just go to "Pinterest" and look around - you might really like it. HTH

    I LOVE IT!!! All positives that were said above. Don't worry about the people following you. When your daughter "set you up", she assigned certain areas she thought you were interested in. It adds 1 thing in every category (to get you going).....and people saw it and like what "you" like and are following. My daughter follows me.....she sees the recipes I "like" or "repin" and knows they're probably economical. She said she's learning. Now --- about HER --- ROL --- she put a category in (you can assign your own)....that said "THINGS I WANT"..............so far I've been ignorant!!!LOL LOL

    I find pinterest is almost as addicting as here! I love the recipes the most I have found some wonderful ones that have become new favorites in our house. I really like Gina from Skinnytaste she takes family favorites and makes them better and gives you the Weight Watcher counts as well. I also find a lot of quilting related videos and patterns as well. You can create your own boards and pin things to them. The person that you pinned from gets a notice that something you shared has been repinned. You can also link it so it shows up on your FB site as well if you wish. I really enjoy it, it's good to do when your waiting in your doctor's office like me lol

    First of all, have you downloaded the pinmarklet? It is a tool that lives in your toolbar, when you're on a website that has something you want to pin, ou go to the toolbar and click on the market. Here is a help topic for you:
    https://pinterest.com/about/goodies/
    Or you can google "pinmarklet" and you should be able to find it.

    Lots of websites and blogs have pin buttons to make it easy, just click the "Pin It" button. Also, if you find a pin that you like, you can click on it, and in the corner of the picture you'll see a button that says "repin". Just click it, then choose which of your boards you want that picture to live on, or create a new board. Play around with it - you can always change things later, move them around or delete things if you want.
