The calendar may be turned to April, yet we’re thinking September—specifically September 6, 7, & 8, which are the dates for the Quilt Expo in Madison, WI. For our 8th annual expo we’ll be adding a social networking event, Quilters—Be Social. Not your ordinary Quilting Bee, this will be our first-ever Quilt Expo social media “meetup” for all of our great online fans! The meetup will include…well, we haven’t decided yet! This is where your input comes in.
Let us know which event/activities would be of greatest interest to you. You can leave a comment below or take the survey on my Facebook page. Feel free to comment whether you’ll be attending or not! You never know, you may find yourself in Madison in September! Pick one of the choices below or add your own idea!
A. Fabric/fat quarter swap
If you have one too many fat quarter pieces—wait, can you really have too many? I digress, here’s an opportunity to swap pieces. The grass may just be greener on the other side of the fence with someone else’s selection that’s just right for you! Do you like this idea?
B. Show and tell about your favorite projects and tips
Sharing is one of the best parts of quilting and sewing. This meetup option gives you the chance to show off your creative accomplishments. Or, it gives you the chance to ask for input. Does a quilter’s show and tell pique your interest?
C. Quilt book exchange
Do you have a few quilt books that are collecting dust? They may be just the “cat’s pajamas” for a fellow quilter. Would this option be socially acceptable?
D. Your suggestions, please!
Now for your ideas! You’re socially connected—after all you’re reading my blog. What’s your idea for a Quilters—Be Social meetup?
Thanks for the input. I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, mark your calendars for Quilt Expo, September 6, 7, & 8, 2012, in Madison, WI.
Bye for now,
