My good friend Stephanie @Late Night Quilter started a fabulous weekly link party about two years ago that she called Tips and Tutorials Tuesday. I thought the premise of the link up was fantastic: to encourage bloggers to remember to write down their lessons learned, tips, and create tutorials to share and grow the quilting community. I enthusiastically participated and always looked forward to seeing what others would link up. I don’t remember if I had a tutorial before her link up, but I now have 58 free tutorials!
With Stephanie’s dedication to the creation of The Quilter’s Planner (have you pre-ordered your 2017 version yet? I can’t wait to get mine!!), her time to dedicate to hosting the link party decreased significantly (hosting a link party takes time and work!). After the Thoughts on Quilting Blogs blog post I made earlier this week and subsequent lovely discussions I have had with many of you, I approached Stephanie to see if I could help revive the link party, and I am thrilled to say that we will be collaborating together to bring it back!
We are going to start off slow and build momentum. The link party dates through the end of the year will be:
- Tuesday, October 4th – Link Party Open 4 weeks
- Tuesday, November 1st – Link Party Open 2 weeks
- Tuesday, November 15th – Link Party Open 3 weeks
- Tuesday, December 6th – Link Party Open 4 weeks
And starting in 2017 we will ramp up to hosting every week! So dust off your thinking caps, look at your schedule, and let’s make a plan to write up some helpful tip or tutorial posts and share them. I can’t wait to open the Tips and Tutorials Tuesday link party on October 4th, I hope you join us!
