I am noticing many newer people on the forum. (Welcome!) I'm also noticing some revisiting of online resources. I thought it might be easier to put some of them in the same place. Here are some of my favorites.

Collections:

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  As a newbie I would love to start doing my own research but I had no idea where to start.

Uh oh....I've found I'm spending all my time browsing and looking through the resources and all the different sites that I'm not getting any home work done! Oh well, nothing like procrastinating.....

Any chance this post could be 'stickied', or permanently placed at the top of the "Dresses" topic?  This is so very, very helpful! Again, thank you!
