The Facebook group has been created and, thanks to Sandra Johnstone and Barb Kuntsi, I think it is all working. If you are logged in to Facebook you can search for Timberlane Quilters Guild and ask to join the group. If the search doesn’t get you there, use this address (www.facebook.com/groups/timberlanequiltguild) once you have logged in to Facebook. I’m sure there will be glitches as we move forward. If you come across something that doesn’t work please let me know and I’ll see if I can sort it out.
Remember, the Facebook page is all about you. Add posts to keep other members up-to-date, post photos of your projects, ask questions – whatever it becomes is up to you.
I stopped in for a few minutes at the Blue Mountain Estates sewing bee this morning. I picked up my Challenge bag from Kathy O’Malley. I love the fabric but I’m not sure about a pattern. The web is a wonderful place though for inspiration and free patterns.
