Hello Janice from sunny but windy Derbyshire. I'm just going to have a mug of coffee having been blown about on my walk. Then tidy my space and take some photos.

I have signed up to join

Comment by MsDesigns yesterday

It is free to sign up for PP.

Some groups are free to join.  They may be a discussion or a workshop. The "Starstruck" group is a free patchwork workshop presented by Bonny Peters of "Cat Den Mountain Quilts".

Some groups are free to join but were created for a workshop, BOM, or mystery that was published in TQPM.  You can join the group, but to participate you would need a subscription to the magazine.

Some groups, like "Quilting Weekend", require a subscription to TQPM to join.  They are bonus project for TQPM subscribers.

Anyone can request to create a group and they decide the terms to joining their group.

Comment by Janice Aitkens yesterday

So with the group is it a free group or would it be that you have to have a subscription to the magazine

"Pattern Pastiche" (PP) was originally created as a place for subscribers of "The Quilt Pattern Magazine" (TQPM) to do workshops, BOMs, and mysterys together with the designer of a publish pattern. About a year ago, we opened PP to all quilters. It is still a private network, but any quilter can join.  We now have projects that are not associated with the magazine.

Do you have an specific questions.  I am more than happy to answer.

Yes i got the message saying about being disable

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.
