Quilt With Us

Hi everybody! I have two quick updates about some Quilt With Us website features.

First, there's now a little "Status" bar at the top of your "My Page." This lets you tell folks what you're up to - it functions similarly to the status updates on Facebook. You don't have to use it, but it's a nice way to let other QWU members know what you're in the middle of. You could type something like "At work, can't talk," leave a little note that you've "Finally finished my huge quilting project - yay!," or anything else you'd like to share.

The second new feature is a chat function! You can access the chat in the lower-right bar of your internet browser. Clicking on the icon with the person-and-red/green-dot will connect or disconnect you from chat. If you disconnect yourself from chat, you won't see any activity in the chat window. Clicking on the little triangle with a line above it will minimize/maximize the chat window so you can see it (or hide it, if you're not interested in chatting). The little double-rectangle icon allows you to pop out a new chat window that's independent of your main browser window.

Once you're in chat, you'll have the option to either talk with folks in the main chat room, or you can click on an online member's profile pic (this is in the right sidebar of the chat window) and choose "private chat" to have a one-on-one conversation with another QWU member.

For more information on chat, here's a link to the help page for Ning (the software that runs the QWU community site).

This is going to be great! Now all I have to do is learn how to really use it - not that easy for a computer non-non-geek like me.

Neat. I tried the chatline but not sure I did things correctly. Anxious to see if I get an answer now.

This is the coolest website ever. To have updates and chats that are about quilting and sewing and grand-kids and family how wonderful.

I like the new features. Have used the "status" one already -- now to check out the chat. Thank you for these! I know I will be making great use of them!
