In the end, we found the perfect dress, and now we have a neat collection of dresses on the Pinterest board. If you have a quilting circle, everyone can share ideas of designs or show off the pieces of work each person completed.

You can do a shared book board where everyone shares different book recommendations. You can brainstorm party planning or gift ideas with friends. There are limitless reasons to share a board with people you know.
