Suggestion for groups?

How about other crafts besides sewing?

Knitting and crocheting discounted quality items would be great. Plus a community chat room. So many tools are so over priced. A good set of hiya hiya or addi turbo needles would be awesome. Crochet hooks that are padded are lovely. And lower priced yarns since there is already good quality ones.

Waaaaay more variety of yarns.
Long Arm Quilting Supplies, i.e. thread, long arm rulers
card making supplies like dies, stamps, inks, etc.
Paper crafts like card making which is stamps, dies, inks, etc.
Hand embroidery.
As a long-term shopper @ Massdrop.com the only downturn in adding more groups is the decreasing variety in the groups. Eg: there ere many more quilting items originally but now, only 7-8 appear during the cycle with very much repeat offers not new ones. Adding new groups will reduce selections of new range unless Massdrop.com can expand staff to research & market items.

I would like to see a group for paper-crafting as some of the tools and supplies as in the machines can get quite costly because like everything else a new one comes out at least every year if not more often and when you get to making 400-500 cards for Christmas you want the easiest and best products you can afford.
crochet, applique, embroidery
How about a jewelry maker's group? It should include tools, findings, and beads of all types, maybe including gemstones if that were possible. There are a lot of wholesale suppliers for these types of things but a lot of us can't afford to make the bulk purchase to get the discount.

Apparel sewing. Silhouette/Cricut crafting
I for one would love to see an apparel sewing community! CanNOT tell you how many hours I've spent poring over Nancy's Notions and Clotilde (now Annie's) mail-order catalogs! French curves, point turners, Organ needles, specialty pressing tools and hams, weft-insertion (Armo) interfacing, silk organza.... I can (and will) go on and on and on. With so many brick-and-mortar companies ceasing operations, many of these higher-end and specialty items are becoming more difficult to find, much less purchase! You post drops like these, I'm right there with my checkbook!
Yes! Please tell us what you are looking for! ;-)

Just to make sure you see this! (I posted as another comment) How about a jewelry maker's group?

Adding my voice for:
apparel sewing & notions, including fabrics, trims and buttons
jewelry making
pewter and metals casting supplies
fine art supplies: gouaches, small size brushes for watercolor, quality hot press papers for illustration, bookbinding supplies, oil paintsticks (NOT THE SAME as oil pastels), calligraphy supplies...

I'm a member of a historical recreation group--30K strong. Finding appropriate sewing materials for garments, and supplies to make accessories is getting harder and harder. Help us out, MassDrop!
This group is for quilting so I would suggest changing it to a sewing group or making a separate group for apparel sewing. I would like to see more yardage in apparel weight fabric such as knits, corduroy, voile, double gauze.
Based on the overlap in supplies and practitioners between many fiber crafts (including sewing, cross stitch, needlepoint, weaving, knitting, crochet, tatting, etc.), has Massdrop considered changing the quilting community to an all-inclusive fibers community? This would allow Massdrop to continue offering great drops for fabric, thread, yarn, and tools that we already see in the quilting community under a more accurate and ​encompassing name.

I would prefer a separate category for fiber. As it is now, the fiber polls are difficult to find. I believe we would have greater participation and support as a stand alone community.
we NEED a knitting/crochet community.
