Hello again and welcome back to QUILTARTNEWS – your free online magazine.
You will have noticed that there was no article for some time and the reason is that I completely overhauled the site to make it more interesting for you.
The menu is really extensive now and makes it very easy for you to find artists, book reviews, tutorials and patterns (most of them free) without searching the whole archive.
Book reviews are in chronological order with the latest review on top. And seeing the cover makes it even easier to find a specific book.
When clicking on “Artists” you will find a list of published artists and groups (in alphabetically order) together with a link to the article(s).
The “Patterns” and “Tutorials” pages will get larger and larger in the next months, so you better check often. The tutorials will always be free and most of the patterns as well.
And the “Events” = quiltshows are organized in a completely new way. You get a monthly overview with all the shows and by clicking on the show you will get more detailed information about where and when together with a map so you can find your way easily.
All the shows are color-coded so you can quickly see where in the world they will take place.
If you don’t like the monthly overview you can change to a list or you can see all the shows for one specific day if you select “view as day” and type the day in “events in”.
By the way – if you want your show or your guild’s show or your friend’s show or whoever’s show in the events calendar just send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with dates, title and venue and I will publish it. No show is too small or too big.
And there is a new quilt in the header. A quilt I made for my daughter. A quilt called “Jewels” because of the jewel-tones of the fabrics. And it seems approbriate that this quilt will be the first free pattern to be found in the “Pattern” section of the website. So please come back next Tuesday for the pattern for “Jewels” (or subscribe to Quiltartnews and don’t miss an article anymore).
And last but not least please follow Quiltartnews on Facebook for all the interesting snippets, on Twitter or on Pinterest where I collected a lot of beautiful, interesting and helpful things on my boards.
So once again – welcome back and enjoy the new website.
