At MyQuiltPlace.com, the online community brought to you by AQS, you’ll find variety, fun, learning, and friends. With 16,800+ quilters to hang out among, you may not get to know them all. But whether you choose conversational forums, topical groups, or your own blog space, you’ll enjoy time with like-minded quilters. There’s always someone around to listen when you want to talk or show-and-tell. Take a look around and click on the underlined links and screen shots to take you there!
Join the ongoing conversations when you click the Forum tab. (Hint: You’ll find free patterns there!)
Or, if it’s more your style, go to the Groups tab and join one, or three, or a dozen. There are 98 groups to choose from; in addition, if you don’t see your specific interest group, you’re welcome to start your own! You’ll find machine-quilting groups, hand-quilting groups, challenges, and swaps. Join regional groups from New York to Washington. Want to learn about whole cloth quilts, hand quilting, Electric Quilt, or English paper piecing? Yes, you’ll find them all in Groups, along with Etsy quilters, miniature-makers, and even red-threaders! Proud owner of a Featherweight? There’s a group for you – as there is for those Addicted to Quilting, obviously one of the most popular groups. Of course we are!
No matter where you roam on MyQuiltPlace, you’ll find active users who love to take a stab at answering any questions you’d like to toss to them.
MyQuiltPlace.com is a great host for your blog, if you want one – you’ll have thousands of interested quilters at your digital doorstep. Your blog will show up not only on your personal page, but also under the Blogs tab and linked to the main home page for all to read.
One of the best features of MyQuiltPlace? The photos. Uploading your quilt photos to MyQuiltPlace is easy, and the most recent 100 uploads constantly scroll on the site’s main home page.
But that’s nothing compared to the Galleries, where you’ll find just that – a gallery of over 25,500 photos, with more being added every day. Take a look! It’s a great way to find new ideas, comment on a beauty, ask questions about technique, and see what others are adding. A short click away from the Galleries is the Videos tab, where you’ll currently find almost 50 videos uploaded by MQP members.
It’s all about sharing. And learning. MyQuiltPlace is a lot like a quilting bee, but a whole lot bigger. We like to call it a quilting network. Or better yet, your online community of quilting friends.
MyQuiltPlace.com is brought to you entirely free as a service of the American Quilter’s Society. Stop by the site, sign up, and just play around for awhile. Share some experiences and some expertise. Most of all – have fun!
