I need to be invited to pin to the Handmade boards  in order to pin there.

Ah, didn't realize.  Don't think I can invite you, but when they get back from Belize bug them to do it.

Anyone who can currently pin there can add additional people.


When you say they -- who are you referring to?

I don't see where I can add you, but admittedly I'm not a big Pinterest maven.  Sorry.  Maybe someone else knows?

"They" is Andrew & Kimberly.  They're on vacation this week.

I think I may have been able to email it to you.

It is okay, but just so you and others know...


You go to the group board, then "edit"


There is a field called "who can pin" or something to that effect and you just type in the email address of the people who are okay.


mine is peg@initial-impressions.net

That screen print is too small for me to see any detail - but...

When you go to your list of your own boards and you scroll down to the one for the group handmade one, under it, before you open it, there are the words "edit"


Click that and it gives you the option to add people (assuming you can pin to that board already)

It doesn't show up in my boards.  It shows up in boards I follow, but only gives me the option to unfollow.  It must be set up somehow to require admin status.  Or I'm a dolt.

I think that means that it is not a group board yet.  If that is the case, people can see what is there and pinned by the person who set it up, but no one else can pin to it but the person who set it up.


I have set up several group boards so I am sort of familiar with the process.

Aha!  Glad to know it's not me.  Also, if you click on the attachment/photo I posted & you're on a computer, you should be able to see it nearly full size.  That's no help if you're on a phone, of course.

yep - it is not a group board yet


I wonder who did all that pinning --- there are a lot of pins there!

I see what they have done. 


They have created a board for each shop that wanted one.  That will get the items there up to that point in time, but no way to add items to the board going forward unless permission is granted to pin to boards. 


Having one board there would not work for me without a permission to pin because I have various boards for the various kinds of items I embroider so there would not be one board I could choose to use.  I would need to pick and choose items from these various boards to upload onto one board that was designated for me - requiring permission.


I think they will have to decide how they want to handle Pinterest.  I will wait to see what they want to do.

You are pinning to the IBH borad correct?
