Get Lazy On Facebook
Lazies, Did you know I’m hanging out at Facebook? There is a lot of quilty stuff, and tons of quilty people hanging out with each other there.
I know, you are thinking ‘I don’t need another online social network to suck my day away’. I hear ya. But, it’s fun and I like seeing what everyone is up to. I’m hooked. And I’d love you to consider joining me there.
An example of why I like Facebook
Just this weekend, creative gal Yolanda Fundora (author, quilter, fabric designer, cool chick) gave us a sneak preview of her upcoming fabric line for Blank Quilting which will be introduced this fall. How cool is that?
Above is a computer generated rendering showing Yolanda’s ‘Garden Party’ fabrics on the Lazy Girl Designs Newport Tote and Gracie Handbag. Pretty cool. Love that limey green!
Go here to join facebook: www.Facebook.com
You can join 1,400+ Lazies in the Facebook Lazy Girl group and share pictures of your creations.
Join the company page for Lazy Girl here.
Then hop over to this helpful page: Facebook Getting Started Guide with links.
Also use the Help page to search for more info any anything – or ask your Facebook friends.
What to do once you are there
- Search for your friends, family, favorite designers, companies: Clover Needlecraft, Pat Sloan, Kaye Wood, etc.
- Create a group or page for your guild, quilt shop, or family.
- Join pages for your favorite people, causes, etc: Alton Brown from Good Eats, Karina’s Kitchen for great recipes, Anti-GMO stop genetically modifying our food.
- Create an event. Putting a family picnic together? Create an event and everyone can tell you if they are attending and what they are bringing.
- Check out the applications. You can play a game, throw a snowball, send gifts, etc: I had lots of snowball fights this winter and got nice presents placed under my virtual Christmas tree.
Note: these fabrics are not yet available. They will be introduced this fall and usually shipped to quilt shops a few months after that.
You can follow along with Yolanda on her Visual Thinking blog here. Check the side bar of her blog for some of her cool creative endeavors – books, etc.
I hope to see you at Facebook.
