*The call for 2017 quilters closed in January - but if you have ideas for this year or want to express an interest in a project linked to 52Quilters, please do get in touch*
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. You don't have to be an established blogger or social media expert, this is your chance to try it out for a week.
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.
As a 52Quilters participant, Chris asks that you:
1. Post on instagram at least once a day during your week
2. Share your instagram posts on twitter (Chris can help with this)
3. Post two blog posts (one about yourself and one about a topic of your choice)
All the posts will come from our main account, so you don't necessarily have to have your own twitter and instagram account but it helps!
There is a little more fine print that goes along with this, but essentially anything goes, so long as you use common sense.
You can time your appearance on 52Quilters with a special holiday, life event, or project - but you can also just share the beauty of your everyday life!
If you think you would like to get involved please fill in this form by 11:59 pm GMT on January 20. I will be in touch with January quilters very soon, but aim to send everyone an updated by February 1st.
I do not make any money from 52Q and I organise it as a volunteer with a few special helpers/advisors, so please be patient if you email or DM with questions - I'll do my best to get back to everyone.
