I made a Telegram chat room for those who like to share their WIPs for sewing/making/furry crafts/fursuit work and stay inspired. Sometimes the best thing to get motivated is other crafty and creative people also working on their cool things!
For the most part this chat is focused on fursuit/furry crafts but other projects are welcome too. Professional makers & hobbyists are both welcome!

Please keep it SFW (since for a lot of us this IS our work!)
Please stay relatively on-topic (don't worry a little bit of off topic is fine)
Feel free to join/leave or invite other crafty friends at any time :D
Edit: We're up to around 80 members now and lots of activity!
Some tips I have to offer :D
After you join there will be a "shared media" portion of the community profile showing media that was shown during your time in the chat, you can easily look back on WIP pics, Ref images, and other images that were posted during your time watching the group, as well as "shared links" which may have some good links to supplies or guides, for example!
You can also search for messages, those in the group who have posted WIP pics in the past don't mind their projects being brought up again even if posted a bit ago, be sure to ping them use @username that way if they have the chat muted it will be able to alert them of your compliment/comment/etc. And long-press or right click > reply so it shows the context of your mention.
If you mute the chat notifications, that's totally understandable! If you want the chat notification number to not show in your taskbar, navigate to your telegram profile and uncheck "include muted chats in unread count" its totally fine to drop in whenever, there's makers from US and Europe so far, so there is activity throughout the day :D
