Call for Quilters - Looking for Weekly Takeovers

Are you a creative quilter who is (or aspires to be) active on social media?  This is a fab chance to share your life, showcase some skills and gain some new followers.

For 2018 - 52 Quilters is doing something a bit different. Each month will be curated by a monthly host, who will takeover the account and introduce you to a theme which will be explored by a group of quilters who take over that month.

The 12 monthly hosts are now in place and we are looking for quilters to help with weekly takeovers.

It takes all sorts to make a patchwork: we are looking for traditional and modern quilters, beginners and experts, ladies and gents, young and old, social media superstars and first-time tweeters… and you don't have to exclusively make quilts (you can make and share other stuff too). We are also looking for quilt designers, fabric designers, and others whose work links with quilting... under these themes:

 Jan - Quilting for wellbeing/purpose
 Feb - Finding your creative voice/celebrating your unique perspective
 Mar - Walking Foot Work
 April - Unconventional materials
 May - World Tour of Quilters (looking for quilters from all over the world)
 June - Solids
 July - Scraps
 Aug - Fussy Cutting
 Sept - Foundation Piecing
 Oct - Improvisation
 Nov - Art Quilters
 Dec - Holidays - (can be any holiday/seasonal projects - not just Christmas!)

There is a little more fine print that goes along with this, but essentially anything goes, so long as you use common sense and post respectfully.

If you think you would like to get involved please fill in this form by 11:59 pm GMT on Wednesday 3 January.

Please note: I do not make any money from 52Q and I organise it as a volunteer, so please be patient if you email or DM with questions - I'll do my best to get back to everyone.
