Welcome to the new and improved Quilting Daily community website! We’ve given the site a fresh, easy-to-use new design to help you find all of the art quilting and modern quilting projects, inspiration, videos, and tutorials that you love.
Here’s a little tour and some hints to help you find all the things you love and some new things you might not know about!
In the bar across the top of nearly every page under the Quilting Daily logo, you’ll see Blog, Quilting Projects, etc. Popular quilt-making videos will rotate under that bar (on the home page). The Blog link is where nearly everything will go–all of our daily blogs and those by contributors about art modern quilting and patchwork, art quilting, surface design, machine stitching, embroidery, embellishments, screen printing and monoprinting, and much more.
To the right of Blog, you’ll see Tutorials and Projects. When you click there, you’ll see a dropdown menu that lists all kinds of ways to access free quilt-making and fiber art projects and step-by-step tutorials, including dozens of free quilt-making and fiber art eBooks of how-tos and projects on a variety of topics.
If you want to focus on a particular topic, such as binding and finishing, machine embroidery, and others, click on Quilting Techniques to go straight to what you want to see.
Our next tab is for you: our Galleries tab. We love to see your finished artwork, works-in-progress, and Reader Challenge submissions. Here is where you can upload your own work and view and comment on the work of your sister (and brother) fiber, surface design, and quilt artists
Next you’ll see the Quilting Arts TV link. This part of our new site hosts all our QATV previews, with links to projects and sources where you can stream each show or purchase the DVD sets.
Magazines is next on the bar. Here you’ll find news about the latest issues of Modern Patchwork, Quilting Arts, Quilt Scene, and Quilting Arts Holiday. Plus, this is where you’ll find details about our current Reader Challenges, our Submission Guidelines, and Subscriber services.
Next is the Shop tab, your direct link to all the instructional resources we work so hard to create and curate for you, like DVDs/video downloads, books, eBooks, special issue magazines, and more, as well as quilt-making tool and supply kits and collections so you can get the info and the supplies you need in one convenient package.
Online Classes is our last category. This is an important spot, too; this is where you’ll find our web seminars, CraftU online classes and master courses.
We’re also using larger images and putting more of the quilt-making tutorials and blogs that you want to see right on the home page. And you can still interact with us and other Quilting Daily members in the comments on the blogs and project pages as well as on our Facebook page.
Can’t find what you’re looking for? Just use the handy search function in the upper right-hand corner of the home page.
Note: If you have trouble logging in, you may have to change your password. Your username should remain the same.
That’s the mini tour–please make yourself at home and check out the new Quilting Daily!
Now, let’s give away some fabric to celebrate: leave a comment below and I’ll choose one winner randomly on October 26, 2015.
