About

Welcome to hobbycue, a social network and a marketplace for hobbyists and hobby communities.  Find a partner or teacher/expert, join a class or a workshop, find a place to practice, or shop for equipment and supplies pertaining to your hobby.

cue is a guiding suggestion or a hint, a prompt or a stimulus for action.  We believe everyone is a hobbyist.  They just may not explore or express enough.  And a cue is all that is needed to get them going.

hobbycue – because we provide cues for your hobby  🙂  Brought to you by Purple Cues Pvt. Ltd.  You could take the cue from your community members, or cue them in based on your knowledge.  Read on and explore to know more …

Why

Social networks, search lists and blogging sites, cut across topics. As part of our hobby, we may end up checking multiple sites and filter for topics of our interest.

What

What if your hobby is at the centre, with a community around it, and we aggregate everything that already exists, enrich with new content, and link them all?
