I had this idea the other night... but let me start from the beginning before I tell it to you. :)
When we started The One Stop Giveaway Shop someone suggested we make a site for quilt alongs I think. I agree that is a fantastic idea!
Flash forward to the other night: I was thinking about tutorials and how to help spread the word about them so people can find them and use them. I also thought about the long list of tutorials for key fobs that Susan put together for the RATZ Swap.
Put those two together plus a little Pinterest and here's my idea! literally. It's HERE. on Pinterest.
Originally I was thinking that you could change the settings to let anyone post to your boards, so I figured I'd just let everyone post tutorials they find. But then I realized that people can only post who you've invited to post. Road block. But then I figured I'd just ask, Do you want to help me build up on these boards on Pinterest??? Each board is specifically catered to specific topics for specific searching! Well, check it out! There are loads of Tutorials: Quilting, Quilt blocks, Quilting techniques. (What can I say? I love quilting!) Sewing projects, Bags, Knit, Crotchet, and of course anything else can EASILY be added that I forgot! Like key fobs! Maybe I could add inspiration boards as well for any that don't have tutorials so they don't get mixed in. Anyway, so what about those wonderful Quilt Alongs? I figure since they don't really ever expire, I mean once their over people don't usually take them off their blogs. So I think pinning them would be a good idea! and all of this will be easier to do and maintain than another blog to upkeep.
Anyway, what do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Do you like to pin and would like an invite to help pin your favorite items, tutorials, and QAL's? Boards are definitely not limited to what I have in there. That's just all I had time to think of for the moment. :) Shoot me your Pinterest name and I'll add you to the boards you want to pin to! :) And there's no pressure. It's not a race. But I think in the end it will be quite an awesome resource to turn to for ANY swap, or project you're working on! :)
Even if you don't want to pin, but you think it's a good idea, let me know too! :) A little encouragement goes a long way around here. ;)
