    Re: Quilting Forums

    Evy, I am happy you have found QATW Facebook. I think you would really enjoy finding and joining the QATW Forum Web Site. That is where you will find all of the swaps, and sew alongs. Lots of games and challenges. There is always something to do.

    I am not putting M* forum down. I have actually learned a lot here and do enjoy the threads and posts from all of you who have been here for a long time. I know you all have become great friends and share a love of quilting/sewing/crafting and you share your knowledge freely.
    Thanks for suggesting QATW. I checked it out on FB and joined the group.

    I think Eleanor Burns has a Forum on her website, but I must confess, MSQC's forum and website is the ABSOLUTE best. No other forums or websites can beat MSQC's (in my opinion)

    Re: Quilting Forums

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I will definitely check out the QATW, sounds interesting. I love M* and think it's the best. I think it just doesn't have as much content as it used to and doesn't take long to read thru it. I do follow a couple Facebook groups and enjoy the ideas/comments on there. Quiltingboard just has too many posts totally unrelated to quilting and the moderators are not as personable or kind to be blunt as on here.

    Yes, it's absolutely horrible. Proves the old adage, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    This MQ forum is very good but I'm finding it a lot quieter than it used to be. I only visit every few days and there's nowhere as many new posts as there used to be.

    I think the quilting groups on Facebook are probably the most active forums these days.

    I'll ditto the personable feeling of this forum. I was on some on believe it or not Ebay. For awhile many years ago there were some private groups that talked about and made custom clothing for children. It was set up as a main group and branched into several with different names. There were 'launches' and competitions etc. We helped each other with photos and HTML to make our listings look professional. It all disbanded when Etsy came along. I have some pics in my albums.

    there really aren't too many big forums, I'm sad to say. I may be off the one you mentioned soon. I guess I will be in here more often and some delphi ones but they aren't busy either.

    Hi
    do not really go on other sewing forums, so not really much help there.
    have you checked out the groups section here?

    All the others I know about have shut down. Shame too, since several were quite friendly and comfortable.

    Re: Quilting Forums

    Sometimes I go on the quiltingboard.com but it is not nearly as personal, personable? as this one is. I do think this is the best one or at any rate this forum is certainly well organized, easy to search and to post on. I am on a FB group called Celebrate Hand Quilting which I like because I can relate to all the questions ppl ask there, but it really runs in streaks and everybody (except me lol) seems to hop on the bandwagon and make the same thing, then race to finish to see who can post the first pics. Full of hard core sewers that do nothing but sew, sew, sew. A few months ago the big rage was everyone was making the Lorraine Mooney block, and right now it seems everyone is into the Frolic, the current Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt. I know there's tons of blogs out there that you can find thru Pinterest, but not too sure how many Forums there are or how you would find them. Let us know if your research leads you to something we don't know about!!

    Re: Quilting Forums

    No other quilting forums for me, either. Have you checked to see if there are any settings on the other one you can change to make it easier to read? Some of them have options you can change.
