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.

Hi Katriina, we decided to create a discussion rather than a new group, here is the link. It turned out to be favourite novels!! which I personally loved. In terms of doing your own thing--I find the internet and the groups the best place!! CT has many many helpful groups--art quilts, hand quilters etc etc....personally I use the internet to help me with math and pattern ideas....generally I do my own thing in that way...I do not use patterns usually, just my imagination and colours the way I like them....I think my colour use is quite good.:o)My frustration level--not so good LOL.Have a great week....I teach kindergarten.....et toi?
