History: In 2006, Fiskars created Fiskateers.com - which consisted of a blog, forums and gallery. As people joined the community, they were consecutively assigned identifying numbers, added to their online user names. A vibrant, close-knit creative community evolved from this event. Membership was required to view the gallery and forums and participate in the Fiskateer events. In December of 2013, Fiskars closed the forums and gallery.
Who We Are: Over 140 numbered Fiskateers wanted to maintain the community they cherished, and so the Fiskafriends Facebook group was created. For privacy reasons, the group FB status is secret, however any numbered Fiskateer is welcome to join the group.
March 27th-29th, we are celebrating our First Anniversary with a Fiskafriend Blog Hop. You do not have to be a Fiskafriend to visit and comment on our bloggers' posts. This hop is open to everyone! International visitors included! The theme of the hop is Anything Goes, so be prepared to find a variety of creative projects and ideas.
Giveaway prizes? Of course! Everyone loves a giveaway! We will have an end of the hop giveaway with fabulous prizes. In addition to the end of the hop giveaway, some of our bloggers are offering giveaway prizes of their own on their posts.
