I won't make you move, but I will try to sell you on a local TL full of other people's beautiful craft photos
@DialMforMara i would set up a pixelfed for this
@ebeth if you're volunteering, I'm on board & will happily help moderate :D
@DialMforMara oh god i meant an account
i could probably figure out how to set up an instance but i don't think i'm technically competent enough to keep up/keep it secure/etc
happy to help out though if someone who's better at maintenance wants to spot me/also be involved
@DialMforMara Pixelfed would make sense, but I've never used the pixelfed yet
@DialMforMara thinking about it further, I think I like the idea of having a pixelfed craft instance, because I don't feel as weird about having one account there and one of the shop that way. I don't personally deal well with having multiple Mastodon accounts.

@DialMforMara My only concern with pixelfed, (though I love it very much and am all for this) is that it does not allow text-only content. The creator thought about that and ruled it out IIRC. So if there was some need for content without photos, I feel like we'd be better off on Masto.
So I'd just recommend, if one wants to do a PF instance, think of a workaround for text-only posts first.
@DialMforMara Did this ever happen? I'd be really interested in joining a fiber arts Pixelfed!
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
