I have been starting to look forward to 2018 ( I know, I know, Christmas hasn’t even happened yet and I’m thinking about next year!!) but one of the fun things I am going to be involved in again is 52 Quilters!
This is a social experiment started by Chris to have a different quilter from around the world share their quilting life and surroundings through social media for a week over the year. It is a great way to find more people that are into the same things you are…. and take a sneak peek into their lives! Read more about 52Quilters here
2018 is going to be a little different on 52 Quilters – there is going to be a theme each month. Each month will be hosted by one quilter and then three other quilters who are interested in that theme will post for a week during the month.
I am excited to be hosting July – Scraps!
I have been slowly working on my scraps and finding a way to manage them that suits me…. and finding some fun projects to use them all up!
If scraps is something that gets you excited – put an application in at 52Quilters to join me in July 2018 to showcase your approach to scraps and quilting! Applications are only open until 3rd January, so go apply now!
With over 10,000 people following the 52Quilters Instagram account alone, this is a great way to highlight your business and your thoughts on scraps.
There are also 11 other months with interesting themes if you wanted to put in a application to join one of those instead.

Feb – Finding your creative voice/celebrating your unique perspective
